How to Clean Samsung Refrigerator Coils

Samsung refrigerator styles include side-by-side, bottom drawer freezer, and French Door models in a variety of colors. All models have coils in an enclosed area usually accessible via a vented cover at the back of the refrigerator. These coils help to keep the refrigerator and freezer cool. If these coils become too dirty from dust or other particles, the refrigerator may not work as efficiently. To maintain your Samsung refrigerator, you should perform a basic cleaning at least once a month. In areas with high levels of dust and particles in the air, you should also perform a deep cleaning yearly or as needed.
