750 watts is low output for a side by side. 750 watts is not sufficient to provide starting power draw for the compressor start-up. The first three seconds or so require a surge of about five times that ratting.

Wattage use


Your calculations is correct - 220 X 0.7 = 154 watts.
If your fridge only runs on 220 volts then you need solar panels that charge 12 volt lead acid batteries and then use a inverter to convert 12 volts DC to 220 volts AC.

Hello,

The calulation of max wattage is going to be 750 watts at start up and be around 500 on normal running wattage after start up so a 1100 watt generator should be fine.

Whirlpool Side by Side Refrigerator


You have a refrigerant loop that runs through the cabinet of the refrigerator and usually runs right under the door gasket seal. Usually, when you are getting too hot on the loop, it is because your refrigerator cannot shed the heat it is removing from inside the refrigerator. This is most likely caused my either a dirty condenser unit or a faulty condenser cooling fan. (both located underneath the unit). The fan should be running anytime the compressor is running.
