While I was vaccuuming the coils, a large flat material came loose from above the coils. I would like to know if it was some insullation or, was it just years of dust that grew up there. Theres more of it but I don't know whether to pull it down or not.

Hi,

Some model# helps.

**a large flat material came loose from above the coils. I would like to know if it was some insullation or, was it just years of dust that grew up there**

A guess since we cannot see it....probably -not- insulation, many refrigerators used some cardboard deflectors to help direct the air in and across the condensor coils and to help direct the air out. Some had batts (sp?) of flat insulation around the condensor coils.

I'd either have someone come in and check it out for you or at a min take a picture and run the picture to local appliance repair shop and see what they have to say about it what they recommend.

Hi,

That model shows several pieces of insulation being used around the condensor coils and under the refrigerator and over the condensor coils.
