Step by Step

How to properly maintain your refrigerators air ways.

+Pull the fridge out from the wall to gain access to the back of the appliance.

+Examine the back panel of the machine with slits for air ventilation.

+Unplug the fridge from the outlet for safety.

+Do not detach the panel from the actual fridge, this is not necessary and better left to the professionals.

+Take a vacuum or cloth and carefully go over the grates on the back panel until all dirt, dust and debris are gone.

+Make sure to clean the area immediately surrounding the back of the fridge as well.

+Plug the fridge back into the outlet.

+Move the machine back into the desired place.


For a fridge to operate effectively and keep food at the right temperature, it needs proper airflow. Due to the fact that a fridge often sits against a wall, dirt, dust and other debris such as pet hair can quickly accumulate within the air flow system and reduce performance for your machine. It is a good idea to check the level of dust and dirt on the back panel of the fridge ever other month or so, and for families with pets, this should be done even more frequently. It doesn’t take long to maintain the performance of your fridge, but it can make all the difference in the world.
