F&P Fridge freezer N395BH cycle time

I would like to know an average cycle time for a F&P N395BH fridge freezer, ie. how long should it run and how long off with a freezer 85% full and the fridge half full. The ambient day temperature is about 24c av. and night about 18c. The traffic is via one person at home each day for a half day and two adults per evening. Thanks, Mike.

What is the energy consumption in WATTS for my Samsung RT45M/RT41M/RT45E/RT41E Refrigerator? It is not listed in the manual


Thanks for the opportunity to answer your question.
There are many factors that will come into play in determining the actual energy consumption of your fridge.
These items include and are not limited to, How often it's opened (freezer especially), Where it sits in the house, does the sun shine on it? Does it have proper space for ventilation behind it and around it.
How full the fridge is and what you place in it.
The average consumption in Wattage on this fridge is 1200watts while running.
So to figure your yearly cost you will need to know how many times the fridge runs per day and how long it's running. You can then average that time over a month.
Usually you are only going to spend about 60-120 dollars per year to run the fridge if it's inside and used or opened about 10 times a day.
A good idea is to use empty plastic containers in your fridge where you have large empty spaces. This will reduce the amount of space in the fridge that it has to cool and will improve the cooling.
Should you have any further question please feel free to contact me.

How do you add a switch to disable the thaw cycle from an Amana top freezer fridge.I need to do so i can use solar power on my fridge.the thaw unit uses to much energy so when i am boondocking i can switch...


while i do not reccomend doing this since more energy is used in running the components to make is cool (compressor,compressor fan & freezer fan) all 3 must run to keep it cool while the defrost comes on for 25 minutes about once every 4 days as compered to the cooling components running a average of 24 hrs during the same time span as compared to 25 minutes is to disconnect teh wires from the defrost heater behind the freezer back wall

ps if you read this and give me a bad rating i do not care

Do I need new frig or hav it repaired. Hav water under vegetable drawers


Its the defrost problem.In your unit the defrost cycle is not running on time.This is the procedure of the unit.--- The compressor starts then it cools the freezer section. When the freezer reaches its cooling level the defrost cycle starts functioning. In this cycle the fan in the freezer section starts running and the cool air in the freezer section is passed to the fridge section and the fridge section gets cold. The air from freezer to fridge passes from the section, in that section the damper is located.In your case the freezer gets cold, after that defrost cycle has to start, but in your case the defrost cycle is not starting on time so over ice gets internally build and when defrost cycle starts, this ice melts and this gets leaks in the vegetable and under vegetable drawer.-------- Get the defrost timer, and defrost assembly parts checked and repaired by the technician.Repairing will solve the problem.You can get required parts from from online sites like: --- www.repairclinic.com or from searspartsdirect online site. --------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Turned the fridge temperature up (ie. from 3 to 6) but fridge warmer than ever. Gauge on side ambiguous. Now wondering whether 1 is actually the coldest and 6 the warmest. Help! Fridge old so can't trace...


Keeping 3 to 5 degree is good. But check freezer is frosting good. If ice formation around the freezer is over, it will abstract the fan by functioning. If so, check defrost timer, thermostat and heater for not malfunctioning.If defrost cycle is good, there would be constant cool in fridge compartment.
Thanks.

Freezer works, fridge doesn't


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

Fridge "runs" constantly


unit should shut off when temperature reached ie compressor and fan stop.
condensor is just a grid of pipework
heater only comes on when in defrost cycle

Model # PLFU1778ES Fridgidaire


tilting it would not do any harm while running the tilting theory is if you lay a fridge over on its side the oil in the compressor can run into the suction tubing and it is recomended not to plug it in right away . this is to alow the oil time to run back into the compressor housing. did you posibly loose some air space around the freezer. refrigeration is all about the removal of heat. if you block the air flow around the unit it may not be able to aceave the low teperatur set points. hope this helped
