Question about Refrigerators
How many watts do I need in a generator?
A 3Kw generator will power most refrigerators unless you add too many other devices to the circuit. There is a surge of electricity needed at start-up of any compressor.

There should be absoluty no problem on that 1600 watt generator..at max when compressor just starts its drawing about 750 watts, that is the max usage when running its about 500 and on defrost its like 850 ..so on 1600 watt generator no problem

SOURCE: I have a kenmore refrig/freezer.
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.
