Nowadays, brand new refrigerators have an average lifespan of 12-15 years. However, this number can be severely shortened if you fail to take proper care of it. Refrigerators are one of the only appliances that run around-the-clock, which is why a preventative maintenance routine is so important. Keep your refrigerator running for years simply by maintenance.
- Clean the Sub-Zero refrigerator condenser
To help assure efficiency and proper operation, the condenser on your refrigerator must be cleaned regularly. The condenser relies on airflow to work properly and any obstruction can cause the unit to fail. A Sub-Zero refrigerator will use less energy than a 100-watt light bulb when running at peak performance; however, failing to clean the condenser may cause the unit to run excessively. If the condenser is not cleaned properly, mechanical components in the unit may fail prematurely. If you have pets, you may have to clean the condenser more often than the suggested three to six months.
- How often should I clean my Sub-Zero refrigerator condenser?
Cleaning the condenser is important for the overall operation of your Sub-Zero refrigeration unit, and we recommend vacuuming the condenser six to 12 months. A dirty condenser will affect the cooling functions, leading to warm temperatures in the refrigerator and freezer and may even cause condensation or frost buildup inside the compartments.
