Abstract

The Simplified Refrigerator Selection Criteria was designed to target high usage refrigerators based on high load, high annual usage and evidence that the refrigerator runs most of the time. This paper presents the results of a study of nearly 500 refrigerators examined as candidates for replacement. This paper will review the selection criteria; present results of field measurements and discusses what can be learned from the available data. (Abstract only)
