Can any make of freezer be used in garage. Told only Beco


Refrigerators are designed to be used inside at typical to normal household temperatures. The problem with refrigerators are if the ambient temperatures drop down below 55 Degrees F Food in freezer will begin to defrost when the temperature in the garage goes below 55 degrees Fahrenheit. The fresh food section may begin to freeze food slightly below this temperature. If you live in an area where the outside ambient temperature does not get below 70 degrees F or 20 degrees C then the refrigerator will work fine but to have it located in an area where temperatures drop well below this you could lose some food. There are heaters that can be adapted to the compressor if used in an unheated area. Hope this helps, Sea Breeze

Refrigerator/freezer in garage not freezing


Most refrigerator Manufactures have tested these machines in hot and cold weather and weather will effect operation and electricity consuption.
As far as cold weather goes It would run much better in cold weather than hot. As far as it being in the garage : It will wear on it faster. The humidity is not good on them and they get more dirt through the system and will need its normal mantenance more often. not to mention bugs and rodents like to find a warm place to hid with fee dinking water and a refrigerator provides that for them.

I have a HTR16ABSARWW Top Freezer Refrigerator in


You need to warm up the garage for it to work right. The cold control reads the refrigerator temperature and if it's already cold, will not turn on the compressor. Hence the freezer warms up to the ambient temperature.

Side by side refrigerator in unheated space not working in cold


Good day,
GE recommends minimum ambient air temp above 55 degrees,
and that's pushing it.
Move it inside.
As an example. If the garage temperature was 10 degrees and the machine was left unplugged. What would the temp be in the fresh food section. If you said 10 degrees, you would be right.

P.S. Insulation does not prevent an area from getting cold, it just delays the time.

Freezer doesn't freeze in winter?


Domestic refrigerators nowadays are designed not to operate at temperatures less than 45 degrees. First, if it's 45 degrees in the house, people probably are not living there. 2nd, 45 degrees keeps food refrigerated. 3, if people are not living in a space, then they don't need to keep frozen food.

This is a result of the changes in refrigerants we've been going through since 1992.
If you want an outdoor freezer, buy one, and make sure it's designed to be used in a non conditioned space.

Beverage-Air Kegerator Not Staying Cold


It can take a very long time to get a keg of beer down in temperature. The heat transfer from a keg is slow due to the lack of air circulation inside the keg. You should also check your condenser coils, make sure they are clean. Door gasket should also be in good repair. Hope this helps.

Does outside temperature affect performance of freezer


Top mount refrigerator installed in a garage and the food in the freezer is defrosting when
the temperature in the garage goes below 55 degrees fahrenheit.
On top mount refrigerators you cycle the compressor and fan/fans from the food
compartment temperature. When the room temperature gets colder than 55 F, you have
long off times waiting for the food compartment to warm enough to trip the cold control.
This long off time is allowing the freezer temperature to get high enough that food can start
to defrost.
There is a kit for refrigerators installed in applications where the temperature can go as low
as 34 F and still maintain good freezer temperatures. The kit part number is 5303918301
and it contains a heater that mounts in the control box and an instruction sheet advising
how to install the heater.
Kit 5303918301 contains:
Part # 5303950194 Instruction sheet
Part # 241532101 Heater

Amana Refrigeration stopped running


If the compressor is at room temperature and no noise coming from it your problem could be the thermostat control. If the compressor is hot and you hear a hum followed by a click the compressor may have failed. Check the condenser and make sure it is clean. In those operating temperatures the compressor is overworking in the first place and if it is not getting free air flow across the condenser it can burn out. Best condition for operating any refrigerator is to remember that if you feel hot it feels hot. They are designed to operate in an place where we live and at the temperatures we live in.
