Refrigerator - NeverClean Condenser

On refrigerators, air is "forced" across the condenser coils by a condenser fan to aid in removal of the heat being pulled from the refrigerator during the cooling process. This movement of air can collect dust and household debris on the coils. Dirty condenser coils reduce the refrigerator's ability to maintain optimal temperatures or operate at maximum energy efficiency.


Because having clean coils is important for the operation of the refrigerator's cooling system, current refrigerator models with automatic defrost have a NeverClean Condenser that does not require cleaning or maintenance.


About NeverClean Condensers:

  • The condenser coils are located in the compressor housing instead of on the back or underneath, keeping them clean and functioning optimally. This design allows for more efficient airflow.

  • The coils will not require cleaning under normal conditions since they are encased.


While it is not necessary for the performance of the refrigerator, if you want to clean dust, pet hair, etcetera, off the floor beneath the refrigerator, an appliance brush or vacuum with a hose attachment can be used. You can purchase an appliance brush set, GE Appliance part number PM14X10056 from GE Appliance Parts. You can order a GE Appliance part online at any time.
