Abstract

Refrigerator-freezers play an important role in the preservation of perishable food in warm and humid climates. Experiments were conducted in a controlled chamber to investigate the effects of the ambient temperature cabinet load thermostat setting and an open surface water pan on the heat transfer and energy consumption of refrigerators. The operating variables have strongly influence the heat transfer and energy consumption.
