Tips to keep refrigerator from running constantly

<< < (2/3) > >>

Joe Sr.:
I had to use my air compressor to blow the dust off the coils on my fridge.

I also rigged up a airlock and a hose on the end of the shop vac to get way under and into the coils.

Jimmy K:
Good air ventilation will help the coils too. If they're in a tight spot, a small computer fan might help.

+1.  A compressor gets them nice and clean.

goschman:
Thanks all. I think I need to take some time to empty it, tip it on its back, and clean it really well. The amount of cleaning I did on the coils seems to not have made much of a difference.

Joe Sr.:
Careful with tipping it (and not just on account of the weight).  If you do, wait 30 minutes or so before you turn it back on.

There's some issue with oil in the compressor.  I can't recall if it gets in the coolant lines or something like that, but you definitely want to wait to turn it back on to let the fluid re-settle.
