In our daily life, the refrigerator can be said to be the most common household appliance. In modern homes, almost every family uses a refrigerator. So, the refrigerator is permanent. Have you noticed that the door of the refrigerator is not closed tightly without suction? Over time, we will feel that the cooling effect of the refrigerator is not as good as before, and the power consumption of the refrigerator will gradually increase. In a similar situation, how should we deal with it?
Reasons for the refrigerator door not closing tightly
Aging or deformed refrigerator door seals are the most common reasons for lax closure. As people frequently use the refrigerator and the door is repeatedly opened and closed, the door seal on the refrigerator door is prone to aging, deformation, etc., which makes the refrigerator door not tightly closed.
So, what is the door seal?
The refrigerator door seal exists between the refrigerator door and the cabinet, and it is mainly composed of soft polyvinyl chloride and magnetic rubber strips. The main function of the refrigerator door seal is to ensure the airtightness of the refrigerator door and prevent the cold air from leaking out, thereby maintaining the cooling effect of the refrigerator.
How to check whether the refrigerator door seal is aging?
There are actually many methods here. Today I will teach you one of the simplest methods. First, prepare a piece of paper and place it in the contact area between the refrigerator door and the refrigerator compartment. At this time, we close the door normally. If the paper slides and the refrigerator door cannot be closed, it means that the door seal is aging or deformed. At this time, we must pay attention to timely replacement of the new refrigerator door seal.
What are the hazards of not closing the refrigerator door tightly?
The refrigerator door is a medium that connects the outside and the inside of the refrigerator. Once the refrigerator door is not closed tightly, the cold air inside the refrigerator will continue to leak out. Sometimes many users will not carefully observe the use status of household refrigerators. Over time, the refrigerator compressor will be overloaded, which increases the energy consumption of the refrigerator and wastes an electricity bill. To a certain extent, the life of the refrigerator is reduced.
