No home could function properly, without reliable appliances. A reliable refrigerator, dishwasher, or stovetop will make your Adelaide household chores more convenient. That is why appliances are essential in our day-to-day life.

The last thing you want is for your Adelaide appliances to break down or stop working. High-quality, reliable appliances should work effectively for years. However, they do need regular maintenance to ensure they will last for as long as possible. 

Here are a few tips on how to maintain your appliances:


The colour of the flame indicates the state of your Adelaide gas stovetop. If it is steady blue, then there is nothing to worry about. Your gas stovetop is working perfectly. On the other hand, if the flame is yellow or orange, this is an indication the burners need to be cleaned. You will have to remove any food particles or other residues from the burners.

Electric or induction cooktops are easier to clean and maintain. Just avoid placing the pots or pans too hard on the burners. Also, try not to drag the cookware across the stovetop. It can damage the surface of these appliances in the end.


Not all items are dishwasher-safe. Some dishes could melt in the dishwasher. Items with small pieces that can break-off, toothpicks, and food leftovers could clog the dishwasher filter. That is why you should check all items before putting them in your Adelaide dishwasher.

Every month, try to run the self-cleaning cycle of your Adelaide appliances. This cycle will clean the inside of the appliances and remove any mineral deposits or build-ups. 


The most essential parts of these appliances are the condenser coils. They are placed behind the refrigerator. Coils are critical for the cooling process. Therefore, they have to be cleaned regularly. Dirty coils will not effectively release the heat. They will put a strain on the compressor and cause it to work harder. In the long run, this will shorten the lifespan of your Adelaide refrigerator. It will also increase your power bills. Avoid also overfilling your Adelaide refrigerator. Too much food can block the airflow inside these appliances. 

Washing Machines 

Just like refrigerators, no appliances should be overloaded. That is why you should avoid filling your Adelaide washing machine with oversized loads of laundry. The overweight can cause parts of the washing machine to break or get worn out. Additionally, the laundry will not get washed properly. 

Between the wash cycles, try to leave the door of your Adelaide washer open. It helps in keeping these appliances dry and removes any odours. When you close the washing machine door, do it gently. Otherwise, you could break its switch.
