Freezer Care

It churns out ice for your iced tea and holds your poultry, fish and meat for weeks without spoiling. To get the best out of your freezer, you have to know how to properly care for your appliance.

Food Location.
Place the freezer or fridge in a cool dry room away from direct sunlight and “hot” appliances like the oven and stove so it will perform better. Make sure to leave a room on the sides and back (about two inches at least) so that your freezer could “breath”.

Prevent ‘Freeze Ups’.
As a rule, don’t let the freezer become iced over up to ½”-thick because frost build up causes your motor to work too hard. When defrosting, unplug the refrigerator or freezer before clearing out the compartment. Never, never break off ice with a sharp instrument as it will hurt your appliance. When you turn the freezer back on, close the fridge door and let it run for about 10 to 15 minutes before you put food back in the freezer.

Energy-Saver.
A well-stocked freezer is a well-performing one; this also helps keep food frozen for a longer period when power is out. Hot food should be cooled at room temperature before placing them in the freezer as not to overwork the appliance. You can help save energy by making sure your freezer door gasket seals properly.

Order in the Freezer.
Organize your freezer by labeling items inside the compartment to eliminate guesswork. Working your way through refrigerator clutter means leaving the door open longer than necessary – a sure way to waste energy! To keep order in your freezer and save on power, use thick freezer bags.
