TFX24PRXBWW GE Profile Refrigerator - energy use?

My GE Profile refrigerator TFX24PRXBWW was bought 10 years ago. I cannot find the specs for electric usage. I am wondering if todays new refrigerators are significantly better 'energy wise' and if it is worth replacing.

Re: TFX24PRXBWW GE Profile Refrigerator - energy use?

I dont know how to locate these specs for you, modern refrigerators are much more efficient for a couple of reasons. Most new units have a Computer that controls the defrost cycle whereas older units have timers that defrost every 8 hours of on comp run time regardless of whether it needs defrosting. The new ADC (adaptive defrost control) can better monitor the frost on the coils to defrost less (in the defrost cycle it consumes 5x as many watts as when its cooling. Also most new refrigs, especially new GE units have much more efficient fan motors now also, however they too are computer controlled and when they fail they are expensive. Also the very high end new Counter depth models (in the $2500+ range) have a new variable speed compressor. This gives the compressor the ability to run at a low, med, and high speed, reducing even more the watts that will be drawn in normal operation when the fan motors are on low and the compressor too. If you have any other questions let me know ill be glad to advise.

P.S. Buy an extended warranty with any new appliance you purchase! Trust me!

Worst refrigerator I ever owned--a lemon

I won't say I can solve your problem short of coming around and loading your POS fridge in to the back of my truck and running by the scrap metal yard. Keep contacting GE and the retailer who sold it to you about your problems. Hopefully one or the other will get sick of hearing from you and give you a replacement. A 20 cubic foot over/under fridge with ice-maker can be had for $450 US, which should last you around 10 years or so, which is pretty much typical for white goods. I have had pretty good luck with Frigidaire and Hotpoint so far. I still wish I hadn't put the 40 year old Wizard Imperial 14 cubic foot bottom mounted freezer that I bought about 23 years ago out at the curb. Given the chance, it would probably still be working today, as ugly and inefficient as it was.
