Question about Vacuums
I am in the process of buying a generator for power losses (I live in a rural area) to ensure the Fridge and Freezer are kept running. I want to assertain the power (wattage) of my Refridgerators so I can ensure I buy an appropriately sized generator. I have looked inside and out of each fridge and freezer and can find nothing on operating power consumption or startup power (which is important). We will likely only run one fridge/ freezer at a time during power outs. 1. 390L fridge freezer late 90s model, 2. 211L stand alone freezer early 90s model and 3. 220L (not certain) fridge stand alone (matches the 211L freezer). Can you help?
I have a 10KW stik welder/generator. I have no problem running a large freezer and 2 fridges except for the startup current draw. I have a $300 transfer switch connected to a 60amp sub panel with current meters on each leg. I have to watch the current draw and turn on & off breakers. I do have to play the "green acres" game because I have the water heater, well pump, and kit ckt all connected as well. Coffee machine, toaster, oil furnace, microwave all have to take turns as well as the water heater(4500WATTS). Cost was about$3500 in 2001 and $600 for a generator shed. lots of my labor. Last time we lost power it payed for itself. 28 hours without a generator would have been a trip to a hotel and lots of spoiled food to dump. hot shower and coffee anytime a big +
