Question about Whirlpool EL7ATRR Refrigerator
I have been told that newer refrigerators with a freezer on the top (3 years or newer) will not work in an attached garage in any cold weather areas because they will not continue to run once the air has reached a colder temperature. Is this correct?
IF YOUR GARAGE TEMP GOES BELOW 35 THE REF MAY NOT WORK WELL BECAUSE MOST REF HAVE THE THERMOSTAT AS THE REF CONTROL. THE TEMP IN THE BOX IS SENSED AT THAT POINT AND SHUTS OFF, THE REF SEEM TO WORK BUT THE FREEZER WILL WARM UP.
IF YOU WANT TO USE A REF IN THE GARAGE, FIND ONE THAT HAS THE THERMOSTAT CONTROL AS THE FREZER CONTROL. LOOK AT THE CONTROLS, THE ONE THAT HAS AN OFF POSITION IS THE CONTROL THAT IS THE THERMOSTAT. SO, THE FREZER CONTROL SHOULD SAY "OFF" SOME NEWER REF WITH FULL ELECTROINIC CONTROLS MAY WORK AS THEY HAVE INDIVIDUAL SENSORS FOR BOTH THE REF AND FREEZER SECTIONS.
