Maintenance Tips


  • Remove the insulation before cleaning the evaporator.
  • The condenser should be cleaned every week or so to make sure dirt and grass haven’t clogged it.
  • Actively make sure there is enough refrigerant, known as Freon, in the system.
  • Prevent the thermostat from clogging by clearing out the ports.
  • Stop the fan blades from malfunctioning by tightening them after cleaning them off.


  • Keep your hot water set on the recommended temperature to prevent paint from peeling off the inside of the dishwasher.
  • Use lemonade flavored Kool-Aid to remove stains on the inside of the machine. Run it in the detergent cup while the machine is empty.
  • To get rid of soap and mineral build up along with mold, run the machine (while empty) with two cups of vinegar once a month.
  • Make sure your filters are clean after every load.
  • Remove food and other particles from the spray arms of your machine.

Ceiling Fans

  • Tighten EVERYTHING. Loose fittings can easily be remedied by tightening the fixtures with a screwdriver. Areas that need to be tightened include the connections of the ceiling, the pole connected to the fan, blade holders connected to the motor and blade screws connected to the blade holders.
  • Blow out accumulation of dust. Dust accumulation can create shaking or overheat the motor - used a can of compressed air to clean out the dust.
  • Ensure that the ceiling fan is NOT run on light dimmer switches. This can cause motor noise and limit the life of the fan. Replace the dimmer switch with an on/off switch or purchase a quality motor speed selector switch.
