7 DIY Appliance Maintenance Tips and Tricks

You know how they say things come in threes? Well that can apply to your appliances as well. Your refrigerator needs a new water filter, the range oven isn’t heating, and the washer lint trap isn’t filtering correctly. Well to ensure that all of your appliances live longer and operate efficiently here are a ten tips you can implement in your home to indoor to prolong the longevity of your appliances and save yourself some money down the road.


1.       Refrigerator

.       Clean the gaskets. Also if your gasket appears to be broken or damaged you might want to replace it so the cold air doesn’t escape inside and the food and drinks inside your fridge don’t spoil

2.       Range

       Food build up can prevent the stove burner from turning on. To solve this problem, grab a scrub and clean off the spills from the igniter

3.       Dryer

        Clean the Lint Screen (after every load). Not cleaning the lint screen routinely can prevent the dryer from heating up properly. To clean your lint screen simply run it under water, then use a brush or scrub to remove the other debris.

4.       Washer

       To prevent leaks from appearing on the floor or your laundry room inspect the hose every couple months.

5.       Air Conditioner (Room)

       Check your filters before the warm season starts and then routinely every two to four weeks for efficient air flow. If your model has a reusable filter clean it with a vacuum if you have a disposable filter simply replace it.

6.       Microwave

         Clean the inside of the microwave and the glass turntable tray. Perform a steam clean with water and lemon slices in a microwavable safe bowl. For a deep cleaning purchase a cleaner to sanitize the inside of your microwave

7.       Dishwasher

          Add cleaning the inside for the dishwasher a weekly to do to ensure that your dishes come out clean. Clean the upper and lower dishracks as well as the spray arm.

Thank you for this great tips that you provided. Actually, I'm hiring house cleaning companies here in Dubai to get our house cleaned. I will tell this to my maids so they can do this because I don't have time to do it.
