Refrigerators keep our food cold. At colder temperatures food is preserved for longer periods of time.
The normal operating temperature of a refrigerator is between 34°F – 41°F. Lower temperatures may cause food to freeze; higher temperatures may lead to food spoilage. The freezer compartment should be kept at 0°F.
Frequently opening and closing the refrigerator door will cause the temperature to fluctuate, causing food to spoil faster and consuming additional energy.
More perishable food should be stored in the coldest area of the refrigerator close to the top under the freezer section; less perishable food can be stored on the bottom shelf or on the refrigerator door.
Fruits and vegetables should be stored inside the bottom crispers. Vegetables can be stored in the warmest part of the refrigerator as they require a storage temperature of about 50°F.
Overfilling the refrigerator shelves could restrict the flow of cold air, which could cause the temperature to rise higher than is recommended.
You should regularly clean your refrigerator in order to keep your food fresh as long as possible. A good time to clean your fridge would be when you are out of food and before going shopping for fresh products.
Cleaning any spills or food that has dropped onto the shelves is very important, as these spills could contaminate your fresh food with bacteria and cause it to spoil faster.
A well-maintained refrigerator will keep your perishable food fresher and safer for a longer period of time, and will save you time, money and energy.
Check Zip Code
Changing the zip code will empty your cart.
Consider the power source
While with washers you may not have a choice, dryers are made in both electric and gas models. It is important to note whether your dryer will need to be powered by electricity or gas.

In addition to this connection, a standard electrical outlet should be near by.
If you live in an apartment or a condominium you may need to confirm with your leasing professional or landlord which option you need.
