To keep your refrigerator running smoothly, you should clean the gas burner after prolonged exposure to gas, at least once a year. When using a tank or refillable cylinders, the service interval is reduced to twice or four times a year, depending on the level of contamination. Contamination in the gas burner becomes noticeable with poor ignition process or deflagrations.
