Tip

Refrigerator Efficiency


The efficiency of your refrigerator can be much better if you take the time to check out a few things before you buy or do a bit of maintenance on your refrigerator. The maintenance part I have covered in another tip, so I will just stick to the things that you can check when buying a new refrigerator in this tip.

Energy Star refrigerators will save you money. Look for a refrigerator rated with the energy star, when choosing a new model. Efficient refrigerators rated with the energy star are listed on the energy star website.

The style of the refrigerator will also make a difference in the refrigerator electric usage. A side-by-side refrigerator will use more energy then a top freezer model. The refrigerator electric usage is higher for those models with the two side-by side doors. If you look at the energy star list you can also see the energy kWh/year usage and see which models use the most electricity.

Some other things you can do so that your refrigerator work is less, includes checking the door seals, cleaning the condenser coils, checking the thermostat settings, and checking to see if you can turn off the door heaters if your refrigerator has them. Cracked or loose door seals will allow air to circulate outside the fridge, this uses more energy to keep the refrigerator cooling. Dirty condenser coils will cause the refrigerator compressor to work harder to cool the fridge. The door heaters also will make the refrigerator work harder to keep it cool inside. Adjusting the thermostats to 0- 5 degree F for the freezer and 36 -38 degrees F for the fridge side will keep your food fresh and still save energy.

Efficient refrigerators are great but they still need to be taken good care of by cleaning and servicing them regularly. Refrigerator electric is one of the biggest electric usages in most homes. Take some time to check over your refrigerator to help save some money on your electric bill.

Westinghouse 633 litle, 2 door


The latest 2 door Westinghouse 610 litre without ice maker is a 2.5 star rating with energy consumption (kwh/year) quoted as 605. We had an older 633 litre Westinghouse about 20 years ago which was less efficient and I would assume about 2 star rating. With older fridges the door seal and thermostat are more important as they will waste electricity if not working well.

Hello I have a GE Profile with Brita refrigerator bottom freezer and it suddenly stopped cooling in the refrigerator portion. The freezer works but very weakly. Ive unplugged it, let it go for one hour,...


The drain is frozen up. The fan what provides the cooling air for the fridge is stuck in the ice. Remove the vegie crisper and pop the bottom under the crisper s out. Also remove the Styrofoam plate. You will see the problem right in front of you. Use a hairdryer to get rid of the ice build up. Good luck

Ice in bottom of freezer.


empty bottom of freezer and run a hair dryer to melt the ice and clear the drain, there is a drain that goes to a pan under your fridge that evaporates the water, make sure your pan heater is in fact wired up, as the factory sometimes leaves these pan heaters disconnected to get the energy efficiency rating for sales.

Whirlpool Freezer doesn't freeze?


insulated or not, garages are generally too cold for new energy efficient frigs to operate. ambient temp needs to be above 60 to work efficiently.
