Refrigerators, Freezers, Stoves and Other Appliances

Appliances and food contact surfaces should be cleaned as follows:

  • Make sure electrical power is turned off.
  • Clean the unit thoroughly with a detergent solution. Rinse with clean water, then wash with a solution containing one-half cup of Javex or similar product in nine litres (two gallons) of water.
  • Allow to dry with door kept open.

Note: Any appliance that has been partially or wholly immersed in water is no longer insulated. It cannot be dried without removal. A qualified service technician should be contacted before the appliance is put into service.
