Question about Marvel (6CAR) Refrigerator

1 Answer

Does it harm a refrigerator to plug/unplug it often?

For example, plug it in on Monday to use on Tuesday, then unplug it on Tuesday evening. Then plug it in again on Thursday morning to use on Friday, then unplug on Friday evening, etc. The refrigerator is located in the kitchen of a local senior center. The new center president says that unplugging/plugging on the refrigerator on a day-to-day basis should be done to save energy. Are the energy savings going to be significant since it must be unplugged/replugged at least twice each week? Will this harm the appliance over time?

Unplugging the unit is not required. Just turn it off with the control. Every time you turn it iff for an extended period of time and turn in it back on it has to pull temperature down which will use more energy than mornal for a short period. If it is being left off for more than a day you should see some savings but just turning it down to a warmer termperature (say a 1 or 2) then turning it back up to normal (say 3 to 5) will result in the same of not more savings (unless you are leaving it iff for more than two days at a time) and it will recover temperature faster (about 4 hours vs 8 hours). This will not harm the appliance over time.

Tuesday is not a bank holiday, only Friday and Monday are. If you usually get paid on Tuesday then you should still get paid on Tuesday as usual unless your place of work had notified you otherwise.

1) The silver pin goes at 12 midnight on large yellow dial. This pin advances the skipper wheel each day.
2) Turn yellow dial clockwise until current time lines up with silver pointer.
3) Rotate skipper wheel counter-clockwise until today's day (Monday) is in front of 14 arrow.
4) To skip a day of watering, the skipper pin is pushed down for that day. So you want to push down Monday and Tuesday.
For watering, the skipper pins is up for that day. So you want The skipper pin up for Tuesday.
5) The brass trippers are inserted on yellow wheel. Each brass tripper represents 12 minutes of watering for example. So if you want to water for 1/2 hour, then put two consecutive pins on the yellow timer wheel. For 1 hour, put 4 consecutive pins.

New tv DP26649 followed instruc. 1-4, will not go to #5 (menu)???


Hi,
Thanks for your mail.  As it turns out, my new TV does not have a proper "setup." The customer service rep in India says their "tech" people will call me on Monday or Tuesday.  We'll see.  If not, I'll probably return it and buy a different one.
Thanks, Dehliarock
