Perfect, thank you. That's alright. So to clean the condenser coils on this refrigerator you're supposed to pull the refrigerator out 2 feet or so and open the refrigerator and freezer door. Turn the refrigerator off so you don't have fans blowing everything around. Remove the vent panel below the doors so you have access to the coils below the refrigerator. There are refrigeration coils brushes sold at places like Home Depot or Lowes which you can purchase if you'd like but they are just large pipe cleaners so if you have something else that will work you can use that. Stick the brush through the coils and rub the lint and dust off of them. Use a vacuum and suck up anything you can, then push the refrigerator backwards and vacuum anything left on the floor. Now you can put the kick panel back on and you can turn the refrigerator back on.
