How much electricity do I need to keep my Woods chest freezer running during an extended power failure?


The amount of Energy is determined by the Efficiency of the Fridge, the Generator Output and the Size of the Fridge. Then you have to take into consideration the amount of food inside because it is what keeps the food cold. An Empty Fridge has nothing to retain the coldness

Freezer seems to run all the time.


Good Morning Linda, this is Z. I appreciate your post!

I understand your Frigidaire freezer seems to continuously running. Unlike older freezer that turned off and on frequently, newer models save energy from having to start up and shut off repeatedly. For example, diesel-powered trucks conserve fuel and energy and therefore have less engine wear and tear by keeping the motor running; much like newer energy efficient refrigerators/freezer. If the compressor is running on a more constant basis; it is maintaining the temperature within your freezer, rather than having to cut off and start again to adjust the temperature.

I hope this information explains why your freezer runs more often. However, should you feel that a service technician is needed; you may visit the manufacturer website to find a provider in your area that will look at your freezer.

Best regards!

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.

The door open light is on and the fridge is not getting cold


Hello,
You have broken door seals and need a replacement soon. Opened door while your freezer running is WASTE the energy and bucks.

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.
