The fridge/freezer rebuild

With the freezer compressor giving up the ghost after 11 years, it was time for a total rebuild. Full details of the story of keeping the champagne cold on the blog. Happy to respond to any questions if you have a similar project in mind.

KEEP it coming... we are doing the same in a few months.

How much energy savings did you realize?

Re: The fridge/freezer rebuild

With the new insulation and new compressors, we halved our consumption. Initial start up 5amps, now 2/3 amps depending on cycle, which also reduced. We live in the tropics.
