Refrigerator Repair In Santa Barbara

Dear Friends,

Can you believe it’s fall already, and winter is just around the corner? This is the season for family gatherings and delicious meals.  Is your refrigerator ready for the relatives?  The refrigerator is one of the most important appliances in your home … because, food! It’s also the most hardworking—it’s the one appliance that never gets to rest.

Call Yost Appliance at 805-966-2846 or email info@yostapplianceinc.com

Below we’re sharing several tips on how to clean and maintain your refrigerators to keep it working properly.

Have a regular refrigerator cleaning schedule:  Every day, make sure to clean up spills and to throw out spoiled food. This way, you prevent the growth of mold. Every week, wipe doors, edges, and the top of the refrigerator. A clean exterior also helps keep your refrigerator energy efficient.   And at least twice a year, clean out the interior of your refrigerator. To do so, turn off the power and empty its contents. Take out the shelves and drawers. Martha Stewart recommends wiping the interiors with a baking soda solution. Make sure that shelves and drawers are at room temperature before you wash them with warm soapy water—dish soap is preferable. Rinse everything, then wipe them dry with a clean rag. Don’t forget to wipe food containers and cartons clean, too! Once done, return all contents back to the fridge.

Clean off condenser coils and cooler fan: Condenser coils and cooler fans keep your refrigerator’s interiors cool, cleaning them at least once a year will minimize refrigerator repair calls. To begin, make sure to unplug your refrigerator. You may need your refrigerator manufacturer’s manual to access your condenser coils and cooler fan. The idea is to get dirt, dust, and gunk off the coils, the fan, and the areas around them. There are special brushes for this task. Once done, vacuum and clean up all the dirt, then plug your refrigerator back. Easy-peasy.

Set the right temperature:  Keep the temperature in your refrigerator (below 40°F, ideally 35°F) and freezer (at 0°F) at a consistent temperature to ensure that food quality is properly preserved.

Make sure doors seal tightly:  When you take something out of the refrigerator, make sure that the doors properly close. If they don’t, this means that cool air is seeping out and may be affecting your energy costs. Regularly clean the gasket or seal with a vinegar and water solution. If the gasket no longer provides an air-tight seal, have a refrigerator repair service replace them.

Keep it full (but not crowded!):  This seems counter-intuitive, but an empty refrigerator is less energy efficient than a full one. That’s because when you open an empty fridge, there is likely more warm air to rush into it. If you don’t have food to keep, at least keep it full with bottles of water.  Be careful not to cover air vents!

You can read up on more refrigerator maintenance tips on our blog.

If you have specific questions about refrigerator maintenance or in need of a refrigerator repair service, call us at 805.966.2846 or email us at info@yostapplianceinc.com. We’d love to help! Did we mention that we service and repair most frigerator brands?

The Construction And Working Principle Of A Hot Air Oven

Image result for hot air oven

The hot air oven is an electrical device which is used in the various industries. The device uses hot dry steam for the sterilization of the products used in the industries. The industrial ovens have different types which are used for the different applications like Annealing, Curing, Heating, Baking, Drying, Pre-Heating, Sterilization, etc. There are various types of industries which use various types of the products to process them as the final product. The application and process type matters most when buying an oven for your industry. It is always better to choose the product wisely after analyzing the necessary points.

While Choosing A Hot Air Oven Pay Attention On The Following Points:-

  • Inner chamber dimensions
  • Inner chamber construction
  • Number of the shelf and option to remove it
  • Temperature range
  • Temperature sensitivity
  • Electric supply
  • Heater supply
  • Overall dimensions of the device
  • Net weight of the unit

  • Internal surfaces (including the doors) of the device are made from a high strength material which could be aluminum or stainless steel in order to eliminate sharp edges.
  • The double walled chamber of the device is filled with high grade insulation as to prevent heat loss while operating it.
