The last thing you need this year is for your household appliances to break down when you least expect it. Imagine you’re hosting a dinner party and the oven breaks, or you wake up in the morning to find the washing machine has flooded your kitchen.

One of the best ways to make sure your appliances run smoothly is to keep them in top condition.  Here are seven helpful tips for maintaining your household appliances in 2017:

  1. Clean your fridge – the components in your fridge will have to work harder and won’t last as long if they’re covered in grime and food debris. So, clean your fridge regularly and pay special attention to the condenser coils and grills. Position your fridge away from the wall and direct heat, and vacuum under and behind it to keep the motor clean.  
  2. Read appliance manuals  follow the maintenance instructions in your appliance manuals to keep them in top condition this year. If you fail to follow the instructions this may invalidate your appliance warranties.
  3. Keep your dryer lint clean – clean the lint trap after drying each load of laundry.  Otherwise your machine will take longer to dry clothes and waste energy. Replace filters when necessary and make sure outdoor ventilation pipes are in good condition.
  4. De-scale your washing appliances  a calcium build-up can cause your washing machine and dishwasher to run less efficiently. Use a special de-scaling cleaner or a cup of white vinegar during a hot cycle every few weeks, especially if you live in a hard-water area. Clean filters regularly, don’t over-fill your appliances and always clear excess food off plates before placing them in the dishwasher. 
  5. Oven maintenance – clean your oven and microwave regularly as baked-on substances can be extremely difficult to remove and a build-up of grease can catch fire in an oven. Don’t block ventilation grills at the bottom of the oven with foil as this can cause the heating element to fail.
  6. Defrost your freezer  your freezer will be working extra hard and wasting energy if it’s full of ice. Make sure you clear excessive ice often; chip away at large sections and use a special cleaner to remove the rest.
  7. Rinse the garbage disposal  run lots of cold water down the garbage disposal after each use to flush away waste and prevent build-ups. Don’t ever pour oil and grease down the disposal, or your sink, as this can solidify and block your plumbing.
