Contents Notes
This study developed and tested a procedure to measure the electrical consumption of ice making in domestic refrigerators. The Department of Energy (DOE) test procedure was modified to consider the energy used for ice making in conventional refrigerators and those equipped with automatic ice makers. The procedure assumed that 500 g of ice per day would be produced. Using the new ice making test procedure and the existing DOE test (as a benchmark), four modern, efficient refrigerators equipped with automatic ice makers were tested for ice making energy use. The test showed that electricity consumption increased about 10% due to ice making. The test also confirmed the viability of establishing procedures for measuring energy use of specific loads and other activities related to domestic refrigerators.
