8 SIMPLE STEPS TO THE RESULT

Please note, if you need to defrost your refrigerator quickly and correctly, do not be lazy to find the instructions for the appliance and carefully study them, it describes how to defrost the refrigerator correctly.

Step one – adjust the temperature of the refrigerator

Before you start defrosting, you need to set the regulator to zero degrees, then disconnect the appliance from the mains, and only then open the door completely. The same procedure with a fridge compressor, the only difference is that all this is done in turn.

Step two – remove all products from the refrigerator.

It is best to plan in advance when you will defrost the refrigerator, then you can plan your purchases so that there are not many products. In the case when defrosting occurs suddenly, then in the cold season, you can leave the products on the balcony, if in the summer, then make sure that there are special bags at home. When you have decided on the products, remove all the grates, shelves, and containers from the refrigerator.

Step three – prepare rags and towels in advance.

Not all models of refrigerators have a container for collecting melt water, and in case of prolonged use of the device, it could simply be lost. In this case, pre-prepared rags and towels will be very useful for you. Of course, this is more true for older models of refrigerators, as new models are equipped with special sumps where meltwater gets.

Step four – the process of defrosting the refrigeration unit.

Here your participation is not boring, the ice melts by itself. This process takes about three to ten hours in time. The main thing to remember is that you should not leave the refrigerator in this state without attention. Here you must understand that the thicker the ice, the longer the defrosting process.

While waiting, you can wash all the shelves, cells, and containers, repack products, prepare a soda solution for washing the refrigerator itself, and so on.

Step five – remove the water formed during the melting of ice.

It is not boring to be a specialist, just follow the process and periodically remove water from the chamber of the device. If there is dirt, use detergent or soda solution. Do not use hard rags and sponges, it can damage the walls of the refrigerator chamber.

Step six – cleaning the refrigerator.

When you see that all the ice has melted and there is no more water, take up a thorough cleaning of the refrigerator, use soft cloths or rags and special products for the care of the refrigerator. Wash all the cracks and even the smallest depressions well.

Step seven – Dry all shelves, grates, and the chamber of the device itself.

It is ideal to leave the refrigerator open so that it dries naturally, in case you need to quickly, then use a dry cloth or towels to dry well all the containers, shelves, and grates, as well as the refrigerator chamber itself.

Step eight is the final stage.

When everything is already dried, do not rush to load the products, turn on the appliance and leave it for a couple of hours so that it reaches the desired temperature only then load it with food, but do not overdo it, it will be harmful to the appliance.
