If your refrigerator has the motor underneath as most do, check for dust build up on the wire cooling grill behind the toe kick vent. The vent snaps off and you can see underneath with a flashlight if dust or pet hair has stuck under there. Remove the obstruction with a crevice tool on any vacuum cleaner. A clogged cooling grill will cause the refrigerator to run longer and cost more on your electric bill. It also can cause the compressor to burn out prematurely.

When you leave the house be sure your ceiling fans are not left on the “Low” fan speed. If there is a power outage the fan may not be able to restart from the low position. They are designed to start on “Hi” and be adjusted lower. We actually had one of our ceiling fans do just that and the smell of electrical wire overheating woke the dog who woke us. We called our local fire department who discovered what the problem was.
