How to Clean your Refrigerator?

Caring for your Samsung Refrigerator prolongs the life of your appliance and helps keep the refrigerator free of odor and germs. It needs to be cleaned on a regular basis to maintain optimal performance.


■ Cleaning the Interior


Clean the inside walls and accessories with a mild detergent and then wipe dry with a soft cloth.


You can remove the drawers and shelves for a more thorough cleaning. Just make sure to dry drawers and shelves before putting them back into place.

■ Cleaning the Exterior


Wipe the control panel and digital display with a damp, clean, soft cloth. Do not spray water directly on the surface of the refrigerator.


The doors, handles and cabinet surfaces should be cleaned with a mild detergent and then wiped dry with a soft cloth. To keep your appliance looking its best, polish the exterior once or twice a year.

How to Clean your Refrigerator?


● Do not spray water directly or not use a wet or damp cloth.

● Do not use benzene, thinner, or Clorox for cleaning. They may damage the surface of the appliance and may cause a fire

When using the crushed ice selection from the dispenser some residual ice chips may start to build up in the ice chute. It is recommended to regularly clean the ice chute to prevent random dripping and any mould from forming. Please clean it with either water or a clean, damp cloth.

■ Cleaning the rubber door seals


If the rubber door seals are dirty, the doors may not close properly, and the refrigerator will not operate efficiently. Keep the door seals free of dust or stain by cleaning the doors with a mild detergent and damp cloth. Wipe dry with a clean, soft cloth.

Warning:  Do not clean the refrigerator with benzene, thinner, or car detergent due to risk of fire.

How to Clean the Stainless Steel Refrigerator?


Always read the cleaner manufacturer's instructions and cautions carefully, and test the product in an inconspicuous area before use. Even if a product is labeled, “for use on stainless steel,” verify that it is low in chlorides and does not contain any bleach.


· Do not spray water or cleaner directly on the surface; instead apply a small amount of cleaner on the rag and then clean the surface.

· Never use any type of window cleaner, soap, scouring powder, or any cleanser with solvents such as alcohol, benzene, ammonia, or paint thinner. Never use steel wool or bleach. If you do, you can damage the finish and rust will form.

· If the unit is on a tile floor, do not use grout cleaners that contain muriatic acid. The fumes alone can damage the stainless finish.

Cleaning the Stainless Surface

How to Clean your Refrigerator?
1 Make a paste of baking soda and warm water.
2 Apply it to the stainless surface with a soft cloth.

· Start by rubbing gently with the grain of the finish to spread the paste

· Add more pressure as you distribute it over the area to be cleaned.

3 Continuing along the grain, wipe away all remnants of the cleaning agent with a clean wet cloth, and then dry the surface thoroughly.

Note: If the baking soda/warm water paste does not do the job, you can make a new paste, substituting a product like Bar Keepers Friend™ for the baking soda.
