Every modern person today in the apartment has this important element of household appliances – a refrigerator. It significantly reduces our chores in terms of everyday life. It is quite expensive to buy a new refrigerator. Therefore, you need to try to extend the life of this equipment. This can be done by resorting to the simplest rules, suitable for all brands and models.
First rule: do not install your refrigerator in a place where there is excess moisture, or in cabinets, pantries.
The second rule: proper care of the refrigerator. It includes cleaning of dust, especially the rear panel, preventing water and liquids from entering the wires, control panel or compressor. You also need to constantly ensure that the melt water outlet is not clogged.
The most important thing that is often forgotten before a long trip is to turn off the refrigerator from the mains.
If such a situation has occurred that the refrigerator is out of order, but the rules of use have not been violated, then you have the right to warranty repair or return the goods to the store with a subsequent exchange. If you do not remember the warranty period for your equipment, then the main thing to remember is that according to the law it is at least six months. Some brands offer extended warranties on their products. For example, Liebherr gives a 2-year warranty on its products.
When buying a new refrigerator, be sure to pay attention to the documentation attached to it (warranty card, certificate and passport – must be present). Pay attention to the address of the organization that will have to carry out warranty repairs, as it may not be available in your city, which will entail a lot of trouble. Make sure that the document is stamped by the seller and the date of purchase.
Fire prevention during use is carried out due to the careful and correct connection of equipment to the network. If you notice that the refrigerator plug does not fit the sockets, then it is better to call the master who will undertake such work. Be sure to check the insulation of the cord and the electric lamp installed in the refrigerator, which should not be more than 15 W.
I hope these simple rules of operation will help you. Enjoy your fridge and good luck.
