/ Running a fridge in a cold room
We had a fridge freezer out in the garage for a while and it stopped working once the temperature dropped.
Older fridges can work outside, but the newer (non-CFC) coolant used in current fridges needs a higher ambient temperature in which to work efficiently.
Looks like I'll have to get the probe out and delve further inside.
freezer bit can die off.
Last winter had to bring the fridge-freezer in out of the garage since it stopped working. The fridge bit, for obvious reasons, wasnt really noticably different.
You can get fridges and freezers designed to operate in low temperatures. The freezer in our garage is perfectly happy down to very low temperatures (below zero) but it was specifically bought for that purpose and has a big sticker on the front stating that it is fine down to -15C.
and also those designed for warmer climes. We had an electrolux 'tropical' out in africa where the outside temps could be nudging 50C at times and the fridge still worked well
