Refrigerator (Whirlpool) increase in electricity usage

My electricity consumption has doubled over the past month and I have traced it to the refrigerator by shutting it off at the circuit breaker to see the impact on electricity usage. Does anyone have any idea what could be causing the excessive consumption of electricity. I have not noticed it running excessively but have noticed the ice cream is very soft.

Very doubtfull fridge fault would double elec consumption. look at rating plate and see how many watts then equate this to light bulbs. average light bulb is 60-100 watts (uk). does circuit breaker you turned off only control the fridge?

Why is our schools electricity acount so high? Just for January this year we paid three times R4000,and still the acount balance is R4800.The account was never in arrear!


Hello, Willem -

You will need to ask your question of the electric power utility which supplies the school with electricity (in South Africa?)

Perhaps the rate for electricity has increased drastically lately. Have you compared the usage from the previous month (kilowatt hours) with the same time period the previous year? If the usage amount from 12 months prior is similar to the usage amount in the previous month, then it is clear the rate per kilowatt hour increased significantly. I am answering from the USA where we receive advance notices of electricity rate increases.

Or, has the usage amount (kilowatt hours) increased greatly? If the usage amount increased significantly, then, there has been an increase in electricity consumed. Have more electrically-run computers or other equipment been added in the school? Are school staff and students recharging their personal portable electronic devices with school electricity and not at home? Is there suspicion that someone or some entity is pirating school electricity?

By the way, Fixya.com is intended as a website for questions and answers on how to go about REPAIRING _THINGS_. Plus, your question landed in a Fixya category for Computers & Internet and not one relevant to electric power utilities.

Best wishes.

Whirlpool Refrigerator Model No. WRN28RWG6


if the flap was open then truely excessive cold air is coming out/escape from the freezer causing no freezeing. you need to defrost your fridge.

Note also that frost build up increases time to freeze your food on the freezer. it also causes your fridge an increase in electricity consumption.

defrost your fridge for some time ti remove the frost build-up.

I would like to know what the diesel consumption an a 1989 landcruiser prado is


You could contact the dealer to obtain the warranted figures that applied when the vehicle was new but it would be a meaningless figure.

70 or 80 thousand miles on a set of injectors can increase consumption significantly and there is the past usage and maintenance to consider and the driving style and area of usage can make a vast difference.

I suggest you make your enquiry at a dedicated forum to try and find a cross section of real life fuel consumptions.

Thnx and more power


please reply to posts within the answered post by clicking COMMENT.

Getting more power will increase your fuel usage considerably. To get more power, you have to cram in more fuel and air. You could add a supercharger, get 0 - 100 in 8 seconds, use 5 litres of fuel doing it and blow the engine up in three months or so. But it is not going to jive with you getting better fuel consumption ;>)

I have a built in single oven do i need to change the wire when i put in a double oven


In order to answer this question we need to see the power consumption that you will have.

So in general if you use just one of the 2 ovens at any given time (not parallel usage), no need to change it.
But if you plan to use them both in parallel, you have to check the power consumption.
See the table attached: http://www.powerstream.com/Wire_Size.htm.

If you cave a cable of 0.2294 inc / 5.82676 mm (most usual case), this cable can carry up to 75Amp. So if you have a 110v power line, this is 75x110=8.2kw.
Check if the sum of your ovens are less than 8.2kw. If so, you are fine. If not, install a 2nd wire.

Feel free to ask more if you know exactly the power consumption of your ovens and the dimensions of your cable.

Hi i have a 318i bmw 2001 my fuel consumption is


Last month, my wife complained of high gas usage as well. I suddenly remembered that I had forgotten to change the air filter the last time I did the oil change. It had been over 5 months since I'd put a new one in. So, we got a new air filter, and monitored the usage, and it was back to normal again. Maybe try this?

Bad smell from the back


Any drippings in back may cause a funny smell with water settling behind the refrigerator. Pull your refrigerator out from the wall and trace the smell. Maybe your waterline needs to be cleaned.
