    Default Electric Fridge

    Be it a household device or small caravan fridge.

    Am I correct in saying when you first switch it on it consumes more electric initially to get to operating temperature 4oC?

    so ... once it reaches the temperature it is then thermostatically controlled?



    Cheers in advance.

    lol, Mr Impatient!

    Yes it will sustain a heavy current flow (which is constant) until it reaches temperature then it will just cut to maintain the temperature


    Imagine if its like your central heating... It will come on full pelt warm the place up, cut out... then cut back in when temp drops

    Well.... It will be constant until it reaches temp, however it won't be "heavy" by any standard, 200w (just under 1A) maximum i'd say for an average fridge. Hardly worth worrying about for those initial few hours
