Your refrigerator is always running which means it's more susceptible to wear and tear than other appliances in your home. But it's the most valuable as it holds your freezer which keeps thins frozen and your other perishables at an acceptable temperature to preserve and eat for longer periods than in the past.
Using a manual screwdriver and cordless drill, you can usually fix most of your refrigerator problems yourself and just look for parts online.
DIY repairs save a lot in the time and money department. Why pay someone else to do something you're capable of especially when it only involves some research and is usually a simple issue in the first place?
Condenser coils are the telomeres of your refrigerator and responsible for its overall lifespan. Routine cleaning at least annually will help keep them in tip-top shape as well as aid in their longevity overall.
