Hi! I am Drew Finn, we are going to talk about how to clean and maintain your refrigerator for Expertvillage.com. Now we are going to do the freezer side similar to the refrigerator side. Again we have got to kill the power, we've got to make sure the power is off, and that is what I am going to do in a moment. First what we are going to do is unload into a freezer, check the expiration date on everything and go from there. Everything you put in your freezer you should put a date on it, if you are going to package it yourself. I think this might be dinosaur meat, the stuff is old. Freezer burn, look for the freezer burn on the surface, and anything like that I throw away. Even though it is frozen, bacteria can still grow in there so check it well. A good indication on the age is all the ice that is inside. We have got to continue to empty it and clean things up like we did on the other side.
