Question about Traulsen Commercial 2 Door Cooler / Refrigerator

1 Answer

Does anyone know how much energy the traulsen urs48dt should be using per day/month or year? Note that the compressors in my case have moved to the garage which I assume impacted efficiency. I love the traulsen, but it seems like it is using way too much energy now to sustain it.

    hi thanks. they were originally factory mounted on top of the cabinet but when the tech moved them to the garage, he had to replace each with 3/4 compressors.

    richard - I am sure you are right about both items - oversized compressors and replacement of cap tubes with TX valve ..... ill need to check it out and see what to do next. thanks again for your help. joy

    Was your traulsen factory configured for remote condensers or were they factory mounted on the top of the cabnut?

Ok, next question, when he replaced the compressors, did he modify the evap sections with TX Valves and remove the cap tubes? Per Traulsen specs, all remote units are factory set with TX valves while local units are equipped with cap tubes. If this modification was not done, it may be your cause of excessive electical consumption. Then again, re-reading your recent post, the compressors were changed to 3/4 hp? From Traulsen specs your unit came with a 1/6 fridge compressor and a 1/3 freezer compressor, is that correct? Electrical consumption on these are URS48DT 11.2 Amps 1/6 HP & 1/3 HP (1288 watts) at full load, while a 3/4 compressor is 14.9 amps 3/4 HP (1713.5 Watts) at full load X2 = 3527 Watts, or about 3 times original. I may be off target, but from what I can assume, I am beginning to think your compressors are over sized, drastrically and that the evap units may not have been modified to TX Valve. Let me know if this helps or if there is any additional information you can provide. Current compressor model numbers, previous compressor model numbers, complete unit model/serial number would all be a help in determining your exact specifications.
Thanks
Richard

How much power does a


Since 2011 the FTC has required that every TV display a yellow and black Energy Guide label estimating how much it costs to run for a year. The label assumes a price for electricity (11 cents/kWh) and a baseline usage (5 hours per day).
The cost is tiny. A typical label can read anywhere from $6 for 32-inch LEDs to $38 for 65-inch plasmas (PDF). Per year. That's from 50 cents to $3.18 per month.

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.

I have a 1995 24.5 cu. ft. GE Profile refrigerator. When it shuts off there is a loud clunk. I think it could be the compressor turning off. Other than that it seems to be working fine. Is this a serious...


The compressor is sitting on springs inside a metal case. When it stops, the centrifical force is absorbed by these springs. If one or more springs become weak or break, the compressor hits against the outer case a time or two. (CLUNK CLUNK clunk) There is really nothing you can do about it, short of replacing the compressor. (read big bucks) NOTE: If you take a new compressor and give it a shake, you will hear the same clunk. If the noise is really bothering you, I'd say after 15 years, it's time to move that refrig to the basement and get a new energy star model for your kitchen. (the old one most likely has several more years worth of clunking before it truely dies)

6) If two lights of capacity 80W replaced by 20W, which run for 6 hours per day. What will be energy savings per month (30 days) in KW/hr?


For the 80W bulbs you'll be using 2 x 80 x 6 x 30 = 28800 W/hr = 28.8kW/hr.

For the 20W bulbs, it's 2 x 40 x 6 x 30 = 7200 W/hr =7.2 kW/hr.

The monthly saving is 21.6 kW/hrs, a saving of 75%.

Leak to under ice cube tray causing drawer to freeze shut.


May be your freezer evaporator drain hole is frozen. If this is the case, you can try to install a low heat drain hole heater into the drain hole and connect the wires with the defrost heater.

Traulsen freezer URS48DT


Turn cold control to Max. This keeps your compressor running for this troubleshooting exercise. Find and manually advance the defrost timer with a screwdriver or something similar. This will shut the compressor down and bring the defrost heater on. If this happens then you will know that your timer is bad.

If it is not that, the next thing to look at is the defrost heater itself or the thermal overload on your defrost heater. This keeps your defroster from overheating.
