Helpful Tips on How to Move a Refrigerator
Moving house can seem overwhelming, especially when you are moving appliances. Here’s a helpful step-by-step guide on how to move a refrigerator from The Spruce. It has some helpful reminders like allowing enough time for the refrigerator to defrost and also cleaning out any lingering water before you attempt to move it.
You should also remove all shelving and drawers from the appliance and wrap and pack them separately.
A good reminder, never lie a refrigerator on it’s side during a move. According to The Spruce, “This ensures that oil won’t seep into the cooling tubes which can cause permanent damage.”
How Crisper Drawers Work
You may not think much about the crisper or veggie drawers in your refrigerator, but they do serve a purpose – they control humidity and keep your produce from drying out. Website “The Takeout,” spoke to representative of both Whirlpool and Samsung for the article about how crisper drawers keep your produce fresh.
“In the regular shelves of your fridge, humidity diffuses into the air or gets sucked into a fan,” according to an article on The Takeout.
“Inside crisper drawers, it’s contained so that it keeps fruits and veggies from drying out. Thicker-skinned vegetables and fruits like onions, lemons, and tomatoes prefer dry environments, which is why they’re rarely refrigerated.”
If your veggie crisper drawers are cracked or broken, that means it can’t do it’s job properly. Consider replacing any broken or missing crisper drawers with new ones from the EveryAppliancePart website.
