Precautions while using refrigerators

Refrigerators
1. Refrigerators have been keeping food cold and edible for generations. However, if you do not know how to properly store your food, you are putting yourself at risk. Placing items in your refrigerator randomly will prevent them from staying fresh, costing you money and food in the long run. Always make sure your refrigerator is as clean as possible to prevent food contamination. .....
Keeping It Cool
2. Because refrigerators utilize circulating air to keep food fresh and edible, you should keep your refrigerator as cool as possible. One way to accomplish this goal is to limit the number of food items in the refrigerator. The more items you have inside, the less air will be able to circulate. If possible, do not place your refrigerator in direct sunlight. Never place your refrigerator next to heat producing appliances. The cooler the environment, the more efficient your refrigerator will be. Do not leave the refrigerator door open longer than necessary. For example, if you are pouring yourself a glass of juice, shut the refrigerator door while doing so. Make sure the door seals completely when closed to prevent cool air from escaping. .....
The Temperature
3. The temperature within your refrigerator should never exceed 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Place an appliance thermostat inside the refrigerator to monitor the refrigerators temperature. An appliance thermostat will be of great help in the event of a power outage. Once the power comes back on, check the thermostat to make sure the refrigerator returns to 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Food left inside the refrigerator for more than two hours at a temperature higher than 40 degrees Fahrenheit is not safe to consume due to bacterial contamination. .....
Cleaning
4. Cleaning out your refrigerator on a regular basis will help keep the food inside fresh. When cleaning your refrigerator, make sure to use a clean sponge and warm water. Clean every shelf and drawer. Dry the surfaces in the refrigerator with a paper towel or cloth, and never use chemically driven cleaners inside. Chemically driven cleaners can have a negative effect on the taste of the food youre storing. Use a box of baking soda to eliminate lingering odors in the refrigerator, and replace this box every three months. Clean the front grill of the refrigerator to allow airflow to the condenser. Use a brush or vacuum to clean the condenser coils. Always unplug the refrigerator before cleaning the coils. .....
Placement
5. If you purchase meats, poultry or fish, store them on the bottom shelf of the refrigerator to make sure they stay as fresh as possible. The bottom shelf of the refrigerator is the coldest part. You should only store certain items in the door of the refrigerator. These items include sodas, butter and condiments. Never place any perishable items in the refrigerator door, as this area is typically 7 degrees warmer than other areas. .....
Avoid extreme heat
6. Place your refrigerator out of direct sunlight and away from heat source such as radiators and range of cooking appliances. Refrigerators may be combined with freezers, either stacked with refrigerator or freezer above, below, or side by side. A refrigerator without a frozen food storage compartment may have a small section just to make ice cubes. Freezers may have drawers to store food in, or they may have no divisions (chest freezers). .....
Electrical installation
7. Make sure there is proper electrical installation of the refrigerator, the power source should be earthed. Be sure to ground the refrigerator and do not use a 2 pin plug which does not have proper earthing, via an extension cable. Place refrigerator near the electrical outlet so that you do not have to use an extension cord. .....
Use Voltage Stabilizer
8. Ensure that your fridge runs on the proper voltage as indicated on a label placed at the door or at the back of the cabinet. To do this, all you need to do is to use a voltage stabilizer. Get the best protection for your refrigerator right here .....
Do not splash water
9. Do not splash water on the refrigerator, as it would cause an electric current leakage or malfunction of some electrical components. Bear this in mind when cleaning areas around your fridge. Compressor and Peltier refrigerators are powered by electricity. Absorption units can be designed to get power from any heat source. A noticeable difference between the two types is the absence of refrigerant with Peltier coolers (these use a different method of cooling). But Peltier coolers use more electricity because they are thermodynamically inefficient. .....
Do not use flammable sprays
10. Do not use flammable sprays such as lacquer and paint near the refrigerator as it could cause an explosion. Solar refrigerators and Thermal mass refrigerators are designed to reduce electrical consumption. Solar refrigerators have the added advantage that they do not use refrigerants that are harmful to the environment or flammable. Typical solar designs are absorption refrigerators that use ammonia as the working gas, and employ large mirrors to concentrate sufficient sunlight to reach the temperature required to free gaseous ammonia from the solvent.[19][20] Most thermal mass refrigerators are designed to use electricity intermittently. .....
Never store explosives and chemicals
11. Never store explosives and chemicals inside or near the refrigerator. Acoustic refrigerators are refrigerators that use resonant linear reciprocating motors/alternators to generate a sound that is converted to heat and cold using compressed helium gas. The heat is discarded and the cold is routed to the refrigerator. .....
Should you want to dispose off your refrigerator
12. Should you want to dispose off your refrigerator, DO remove the door completely as a safeguard against small children being trapped inside the refrigerator. This is not a joke, it has happened in the past! refrigerators consumed more energy than any other home appliance[citation needed], but in the last 20 years progress has been made to design, manufacture, and encourage the sale of refrigerators with improved energy efficiency. In the early 1990s a competition was held among the major manufacturers to encourage energy efficiency. .....
Do not use Benzene
13. Do not use Benzene, Thinner or Clorox for cleaning. They may damage the surface of the appliance and can create a risk of fire.Freezer units are used in households and in industry and commerce. Food stored at or below ?18 .....
Do not spray the refrigerator
14. Do not spray the refrigerator with waterwhile it is plugged in, as it may cause anelectric shock.Commercial refrigerator and freezer units, which go by many other names, were in use for almost 40 years prior to the common home models. They used gas systems such as ammonia (R-717) or sulfur dioxide (R-764), which occasionally leaked, making them unsafe for home use. Practical household refrigerators were introduced in 1915 and gained wider acceptance in the United States in the 1930s as prices fell and non-toxic, non-flammable synthetic refrigerants such as Freon-12 (R-12) were introduced. However, R-12 damaged the ozone layer, causing governments to issue a ban on its use in new refrigerators and air-conditioning systems in 1994. .....
Do not clean the refrigerator with thinner
15. Do not clean the refrigerator with thinner or car detergent for risk of fire. A common commercial refrigerator is the glass fronted beverage cooler. These type of appliances are typically designed for specific re-load conditions meaning that they generally have a larger cooling system. This ensures that they are able to cope with a large throughput of drinks and frequent door opening. As a result, it is common for these types of commercial refrigerators to have energy consumption of >4 kWh/day. .....
Unplug the power cord of the refrigerator
16. Unplug the power cord of the refrigerator before you start cleaning your Refrigerator. A refrigerator (colloquially fridge) is a common household appliance that consists of a thermally insulated compartment and a heat pump (mechanical, electronic, or chemical) that transfers heat from the inside of the fridge to its external environment so that the inside of the fridge is cooled to a temperature below the ambient temperature of the room. .....
Cleaning and user maintenance
17. Cleaning and user maintenance shall not be made by children without supervision. Refrigeration is an essential food storage technique in developed countries. The lower temperature lowers the reproduction rate of bacteria, so the refrigerator reduces the rate of spoilage. A refrigerator maintains a temperature a few degrees above the freezing point of water. Optimum temperature range for perishable food storage is 3 to 5 .....
Do not play with the appliance
18. Young children should be supervised to ensure they do not play with the appliance. Domestic refrigerators and freezers for food storage are made in a range of sizes. Among the smallest is a 4 L Peltier refrigerator advertised as being able to hold 6 cans of beer. A large domestic refrigerator stands as tall as a person and may be about 1 m wide with a capacity of 600 L. Refrigerators and freezers may be free-standing, or built into a kitchen. The refrigerator allows the modern family to keep food fresh for longer than before. .....
Packing
19. The packaging material is entirely recyclable, and marked with the recycling symbol. Follow local regulations for scrapping.Keep the packaging materials (plastic bags, polystyrene parts, etc.) out of reach of children, as they are potentially dangerous. .....
Appliance
20. The appliance is made using recyclable materials. Dispose of the appliance in conformity with local environmental regulations.Make the appliance unusable by cutting off the power cord. The appliance must be delivered to an authorised collection centre for the recovery of refrigerant gas. .....
IMPORTANT
21. Do not remove the white foam air return insert from behind the control panel on the ceiling of the refrigerator. If the insert is removed, ice may migrate down from the freezer and cause icicles to form. Before the invention of the refrigerator, icehouses were used to provide cool storage for most of the year. Placed near freshwater lakes or packed with snow and ice during the winter, they were once very common. Natural means are still used to cool foods today. On mountainsides, runoff from melting snow is a convenient way to cool drinks, and during the winter one can keep milk fresh much longer just by keeping it outdoors. .....
When Moving Your Refrigerator
22. Your refrigerator is heavy. When moving the refrigerator for cleaning or service, be sure to protect the floor. Always pull the refrigerator straight out when moving it. Do not wiggle or walk the refrigerator when trying to move it, as floor damage could occur. .....
Remove the Packaging
23. Do not use sharp instruments, rubbing alcohol, flammable fluids, or abrasive cleaners to remove tape or glue. These products can damage the surface of your refrigerator. For more information, see Refrigerator Safety. Always remember to place cooked food above raw food in the same refrigerator, i.e. ready-to-eat food or cooked food should be kept in the upper compartment while raw food should be stored in the lower compartment of a refrigerator; .....
The manufacturers installation instructions
24. The manufacturers installation instructions for product and cabinetry ventilation must be followed when installing the appliance. Ensure the temperature of the refrigerator to be kept at less than 5 .....
Clear of obstruction
25. Keep ventilation openings, in the appliance enclosure or in the built-in structure, clear of obstruction. Food taken out of the refrigerator should be thoroughly cooked or reheated until the core temperature of the food reaches 75 .....
Do not use mechanical devices
26. Do not use mechanical devices or other means to accelerate the defrosting process, other than those recommended by the manufacturer. The refrigerator should be sufficiently ventilated; avoid overstocking the refrigerator to maintain even distribution of cold air inside. Keep the door closed as often as possible to prevent the rise of temperature inside the refrigerator. .....
Ventilation and installation
27. When installing your refrigerator, ensure you allow adequate ventilation around the cabinet. The following dimensions are the minimum air clearances:Both sides = 20 mm Rear = 30 mm Top = 50 mm. Ensure you allow sufficient space to open your refrigerator and freezer door adequately. The table and diagrams in the Installation instructions in the User Guide, details all the necessary cabinet dimensions. .....
Location
28. Your refrigerator should not be located in direct sunlight or next to any heat generating appliance such as a cooktop, oven or dishwasher. If your product is an Ice & Water model, a water supply must be available to connect to the refrigerator. See panel 4 for installation instructions. .....
Power
29. The appliance must be installed so the plug is accessible.To ensure that the appliance is not accidentally switched off, connect your refrigerator to its own power point. For power requirements, refer to the information on the serial plate located at the front bottom right-hand side of the refrigerator when the door is open. It is essential that the appliance be properly grounded (earthed).If your refrigerator is turned off for any reason, wait 10 minutes before turning it back on. .....
Stability
30. It is important that all four corners of the refrigerator base are supported firmly on the floor to eliminate any cabinet movement. Installing the appliance on a soft or uneven or unlevel floor may result in twisting of the cabinet and poor sealing of the doors. Before moving your refrigerator into its position, ensure that the adjustable front feet are fully retracted by turning them anticlockwise. Position your refrigerator. Turn the adjustable feet clockwise, to lower the adjustable front feet. Raise the front of the appliance until it is stable and the doors move towards the closed position, on their own, when open.The front levelling foot on the hinge side should take the majority of the weight of the cabinet and the cabinet should be stable, ie cabinet should not rock or wobble. .....
Leveling and Door Closing
31. Your refrigerator has two adjustable front feet one on the right and one on the left. In most cases, the refrigerator should be steady when both feet are touching the floor. If your refrigerator seems unsteady or if you want the doors to close more easily,adjust the refrigerators tilt using the instructions below:1-Move the refrigerator into its final location. If necessary, open both doors to 90 .....
