How to clean the refrigerator

Last Update Date : Apr 25. 2018


Cleaning needs for general maintenance


1. Interior

    Clean the accessories with a mild detergent, and then wipe out with a dry cloth.

    After washing the accessories, make sure that they are dry before using them again.

2. Exterior 

    Wipe the digital panel and display panel with a clean cloth.

    The surface of doors, handles, and cabinets should be cleaned with a mild detergent, such as Cerama Bryte®.

    Warning: Do not use benzene, thinner, or bleach for cleaning. It may cause a fire.

    Warning: Do not spray water directly on the surface of the refrigerator while cleaning. It may cause a death by an electric shock.

    If the exterior part of the refrigerator is stainless steel, it should be polished once or twice a year.

3. Rear

    Use a vacuum cleaner to remove dust once or twice a year.

4. Ice and Water Dispenser

    Use a damp cloth to clean the ice and water dispenser. Then wipe it out with a dry cloth.

    To keep drainage grid dry, do not touch ice and water dispenser.

5. Rubber Door Seals

    If the rubber door seals are dirty, the door will not close properly, the refrigerator will not be able to function efficiently. Clean the doors with a mild detergent and damp cloth. Then wipe with a dry cloth.

    Try using a wooden skewer or chopstick wrapped in a small cloth to clean between the grooves.

6. Stainless Steel Finish

The best way to clean the stainless steel finish of your appliance is with a stainless steel cleaner or polish, which can be sold as a liquid, paste, or foam. Use soft, clean rags; do not use brushes or scouring pads.

Glass cleaner can leave streaks on the stainless steel finish. Harsher chemicals (benzene, thinner, bleach, alcohol, acetone, ammonia) can erode the protective coating that is applied to the surface and could cause an electric shock.
