Mr. Appliance offers appliance maintenance tips.

The periodic up-keep can increase the life of your appliances and improve operation.

Dedicated support, attention to every detail and caring for every need sounds like the ultimate valentine…for home appliances. Forget the hour-long dinner reservations and cook up a romantic meal. But first, show your appliances some tender loving care this Valentine’s Day to avoid kitchen heartbreak.

“The periodic up-keep can increase the life of your appliances and improve operation,” said Doug Rogers, president of Mr. Appliance.

Take time to love appliances. Follow these steps from Mr. Appliance to cook up some romance, instead of frustration with inefficient appliances.

Give Your Oven Some Lovin’

  •     Don’t run the self-cleaning cycle within one week of a big dinner - ovens have a tendency to fail during or right after a self-cleaning cycle.
  •     Clean the reflector bowls under the burners to help cook more efficiently.

XOXO For Your Dishwasher

  •     When in doubt, wash dishes by hand.
  •     Run an empty dishwasher with a cup of white vinegar to eliminate odors and buildup.

Keep Your Garbage Disposal Smelling Like Roses

  •     Place a handful of ice cubes in the disposal. Add lemon, orange or lime peels and run disposal with cold water for 15 to 30 seconds. Continue to rinse with cold water.
  •     To avoid clogging garbage disposals, remember to not pour grease down the drain.

Rekindle Your Refrigerator

  •     Unplug the refrigerator and use a vacuum to remove any dust from the coils. This will help it run more efficiently and trim utility bills.
  •     Make sure it’s loaded properly. Contents should be evenly distributed.

If your appliances need a technician’s tender loving care, call a professional at Mr. Appliance to play cupid for appliances on Valentine’s Day.
