One of the key components it the cooling coil, it goes in the back of the refrigerator and it allows the engine to cool down, generally it gets very dusty and dirty, when this happens it slows down the engine and reduces its lifetime, that is why we need to clean it periodically with a wet cloth to ensure a proper functioning.


Another option, if possible, is to use the vacuum but only after unplugging the refrigerator, this will also help eliminate dust and any other remainingโ€™s that could be obstructing the area.
