What will happen to your body if you continuously work for 24 hours a day? You will feel tired and the body parts damaged beyond repair. So, what do you think about a fridge? It may be the most expensive home electronic appliance in your home, but does it work for 24 hours every day? You load the appliance with food, drinks. The children, adults open and close the doors. It is always working 24 X 7 to keep the food fresh as well cold. So, is it a wonder that the appliance malfunctions if not properly maintained?
Let us look at some of the common causes for fridge repair:-
- You should never overload the appliance. Imagine, you go in a lift which can harbor only eight people. After completing a party, 14 persons get into the lift. By the time the life moves to the ground floor from 14th floor, you will gasp for fresh air. The same principle applies to fridge. IF the fridge is packed, cold air cannot circulate in
- the fridge. In turn, the food items will get spoiled and in due course of time, the efficiency of the fridge will go down.
- The doors of the fridge should not be opened frequently. The reason – warm air from outside will enter the fridge and cold air will make a exit. By the sudden change, the temperature can go down by five to ten degree Celsius. If the doors are opened again and again, or if the door is kept open, then the compressor has to keep working for a long time to maintain the cold temperature inside the fridge. In due course of time, it will suffer failure. And never forget that compressor is the most expensive part of the fridge. Usually buyers do not forget to take the warranty of compressor while buying the fridge.
- You should leave one to two inches of space or more to allow free air to circulate around the appliance. Do not attach the refrigerator to a wall.
- The last point is important, and concerned to your health. Never forget to keep the fridge clean from the inside and outside. Do not forget to throw of the rotten items. Or else the fresh food will get contaminated.

The family elders are old and they lead a retired life. Especially in cities such as Hyderabad, Pune and Bangalore, the food that is prepared in the morning, is kept in the fridge. It changes to lunch in the afternoon, and is modified to become another food item in the night.
