Don’t let your appliances push you over the edge.

Follow our simple tips to help keep your appliances working without a hitch.  And if you do run into problems, don’t worry – just check out the repair help section of our website for basic solutions.  If your appliance  repair problem is more complicated, email the RepairGuru; chances are, he’ll know what to do.

You’re minding your own business -- feeding your dog, paying your bills -- but one day you reach into your mailbox and find an envelope containing some very disturbing news!  Your utility bill has gone up by 20 percent!  You start investigating.  How can you make your home more energy efficient, including your appliances? Here are some tips to get you started:

1. 
Check to see if your refrigerator or freezer is full but not overcrowded. Arrange contents in a way that allows air to circulate, but not so sparse that too much open space must be cooled.
2.

Do your refrigerator and freezer doors fit tightly?  If not, adjust or replace the gaskets—you can find them for your model using the PartDetective on our website.

3. Set your refrigerator thermostat between 37 and 40 degrees and your freezer between 0 and 5 degrees. Use the refrigerator thermometer below to check the actual temperature inside your appliance.
4. Clean dust from the refrigerator coils. RepairClinic.com offers a Refrigerator Condenser Brush to help you with this messy task.
5. Start tracking total power consumption by the hour, day, week, month or year for any standard household appliance that plugs into a 110 volt outlet using the Kill-a-Watt Meter. It can be used to check consumption for computers, table lamps and most other devices that plug into standard wall receptacles.
