Make sure it is cold. Fridge maintenance tips.
Your fridge works hard to cool your beverages and keep your goods fresh. But do you know you can help it a lot to fulfill its refrigeration duty and stay cool while making just a little effort?
Yes, your simplest maintenance tasks are not to let warm outside air get inside your fridge and prevent cold inside air from getting warm.
Don’t keep the doors open
Sometimes, people open their fridge and freeze in front of it, trying to recall what they want to take. Or, and this is another common case, they leave the doors open while they go for other items to put for cooling. But the worst case is leaving doors open unintentionally overnight or the like. Because in this case, the open-door period is the longest.
In all these cases, the temperature in the refrigerator rises. In other words, it becomes less cold. And there are two reasons for this:
Sometimes, the light stays on even while the door is closed, so you have a constant heat source inside. This malfunction is especially frequent with commercial refrigeration appliances. This not only spoils groceries but may cause even greater breakdowns. As great as motor failure. Therefore, if you have such an issue with your commercial or residential fridge, you need to fix it as quickly as possible.

Keep your fridge door seals clean and intact
The door seals (gaskets) are not only for softening the fridge door impact on its body. They are also to prevent warm outside air from getting inside the fridge. Indeed, there are no perfectly flat surfaces that fit tightly together that leave no chances for warm air.
Thus, to keep your fridge cold, ensure there is no gap between the closed door and the fridge body. So, inspect and clean the gaskets regularly:
To clarify, food residues, debris create micro gaps that let warm air get inside. So do cracks, cuts, and tears. Besides, some food residues (for example, jam residues) act as glue, and the gaskets may stick to the body and tear when you are opening the door.
And yes, there is one more tip to give: do not put hot food into your fridge.
