Is your refrigerator running efficiently?

Do you need to replace the old door seals on your refrigerator?
Here is a good test to try. Close the refrigerator door on a dollar bill,
if you can easily pull out the dollar, you would benefit from replacing
the door seals. Good seals help conserve electricity by not allowing refrigerated
air to escape from your refrigerator, and will help increase its life
expectancy. It is important to defrost your manual defrost freezer any
time ice builds up more than a quarter inch, because the efficiency drops
significantly when this happens.
The area surrounding refrigerator coils should be kept clean. They are
typically dirty because it is inaccessible.
Dust and dirt build-up will increase energy usage, and could cause the
unit to break down.
