Tip & How-To about Refrigerators
Remove the grill along the bottom of your refrigerator. Locate the drip pan, using a flashlight if necessary. The pan should be sitting on a set of black condenser coils.
Remove the pan and wash it. Use a mixture of warm, soapy water and bleach to kill the mold.
Reinstall the pan and the grill.
Locate the coils. They look like thin, black radiators and may be underneath the fridge or attached to the back.
If the coils are on the back, pull the refrigerator away from the wall, then vacuum the dusty coils, using the brush and crevice attachments. Reinstall the refrigerator grill.
If the coils are underneath, pull off the grill and remove the drip pan. Vacuum the dusty coils, using the crevice attachment to get between them. Take care not to damage the delicate coils. Reinstall the refrigerator grill.
