Hi! I am Drew Finn, we are going to talk about how to clean and maintain your refrigerator for We are going to make sure safe clean refrigerator, we have to get the power off to it, because we are sticking the brush, which is metal conductor and we will be likely be grabbing metal underneath, where all electrical components are, the motor, compressor and we could get electrocuted, so it is very important to get the power off. Now you can pull the refrigerator out, get to the outlet and unplug it, or if you happen to know where the circuit breaker is, which I do because I built the house. We can just pull the breaker which I will do momentarily, so we want to make sure we got the right one. So we will make sure the light goes off one second, is the light off, oh yes, excellent. Now we know it is safe. Just turning the controls off to the compressor is not adequate, the power is underneath and that is what we got to kill so we don’t kill you.
