Re: Wattage

Well I guess, one can look at the electrical name plate of the model in question. Note the voltage and amp rating. and sometimes the wattage is listed. Or multiply the voltage 120 times the amperage. The product is your wattage. regards, fmauka

I have a kenmore refrig/freezer. Full load amp is 6.5 , 60 hz and 115 volts. I have a generator that will take 1100 watts with 1500 peak or surge watts. I heard that refrigerators use more electricity or...


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.

Want to know the wattage of my kenmore coldspot model# 106 41512100

To determine the wattage take the voltage and multiply it by the total amperage.
The total amperage is usually listed where the model number is listed.

The light in my fridge compartment went out. Can I buy any bulb to replace it or is it a special one?

They are not particularly special just small and low wattage.

If you remove the old one you can get the wattage details from it.

Often fridge bulbs are screw in thread.

Kenmore top mount refrigerator, 18 cubic feet. how many amps doe it use. question is for purchase of emergency generator. spec Plate states 4.5 amps, is that accurate? Refrig is 115 volts, 60 hz

Good day,
That sounds about right, however if your generator is rated in wattage the amps times volts won't work.
On an induction unit, such as a refrigerator, the wattage is volts times power factor times amps.
Nominal wattage should be around 375 watts. However, during auto defrost the heater will probably be around 450 watts.
As well, locked rotor amps on starting will be about 4 times running amps approx. 18 to 20 amps. so your generator will have to be able to handle that.
The short and long of it is give yourself wiggle room.

  • Defective fan motor.
  • Defective defrost timer,defrost heater or defrost terminal thermostat.
  • Temperature control failure.
  • Compressor motor defective. Inefficient compressor (low wattage readings).
  • Condenser fan.AC circuit to fan open (high wattage reading). Defective fan (high wattage reading).
