One of the most trusted names in major home appliances, Kenmore refrigerators are made for Sears by some of the world’s top refrigerator manufacturers. Brands like Whirlpool, Samsung, Haier and LG have all produced Sears’ Kenmore appliances over the years. Kenmore refrigerators earn high marks for affordability, reliability and innovative features like an Airtight Crisper. In spite of their innovative dependability, these refrigerators require occasional maintenance and repair by qualified technicians.
Tips for Maintaining Your Kenmore Fridge
Your refrigerator is constantly at work keeping your fresh foods cold and your frozen foods at optimum temperature. You can help it stay efficient and in tip-top shape by performing the maintenance tips outlined in your Kenmore refrigerator manual. But, before you start checking your Sears Kenmore refrigerator, unplug the unit to avoid electrical shock.
- Immediately clean any spills inside your fridge to avoid blocking vital air vents and passages.
- Maximize your refrigerator’s temperature by checking rubber door gaskets to make sure they are sealing properly. Three or four times a year, clean off any food or fluid that might have built-up on the rubber, and clean your fridge where the rubber hits. Look for any brittle or cracked rubber that might indicate that it’s time for new rubber gaskets.
- Vacuum the backside of your refrigerator and all of the cords and hoses connected to it. Again, look for any brittle pieces, frayed cords or punctured lines to catch potential problems early.
- Follow your manual’s instructions for vacuuming condenser coils to optimize their efficiency. This should be done at least every six months.
