SOURCE: Our refigerator is not cooling .

Hello Laura,
If you look at the rear wall inside the freezer compartment down low and find a bunch of frost on that wall, you have an automatic defrost system failure. The most likely part that has failed is the defrost thermostat. It is located on the top of the freezer coil, clipped onto a piece of tubing. It will have 2 wires coming out of it and it is about the diameter of a quarter and about 3/4" tall. To test this part you would need a test meter and enough skill to check if the contacts are closed when the thermostat is frozen withing the specifications stated on the thermostat. I believe yours would close at 25 degrees F and opens at 47 degrees F. Part # 5303918214
I hope this helps you. supertechks

SOURCE: I need energy star rating for kenmore refrigerator #795.71309.012

The 795.71309.012 was built by LG for the Kenmore line. You can buy a copy of the Energy Star Rating label from Sears Parts Direct or other appliance parts store for a few dollars. It is part number MEZ62603802; see http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-number/Kenmore-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/MEZ62603802/0046/795/Model-79571309012/0582/0161000?keySuffixId=NA&pathTaken=partSearch&pathRender=modelComponent&documentCompId=F1201020&diagramPageId=00004&productTypeId=x&searchModelNumber=79571309012&subCompDesc=Refrigerator%20parts%20%28pantry%29&brandDesc=KENMORE&modelDesc=REFRIGERATOR&blt=11&shdMod= .

Unfortunately the 795.71309.012 is not listed at the EPA Energy Star site any more. (It's no longer qualified due to changes in the energy efficiency requirements.)

I wish that I could be of more assistance.

What year is magic chef model ctb1922grw refrigerator?


There should be a sticker in the FRONT door that has the YEAR manufactured. ENERYSTAR has been around for quite some time. The newer the more efficient but still efficient.

Top-Load vs Front-Load Washers - Things to Consider


The traditional top-loader is more comfortable to load and cheaper to buy. High efficiency washers in top-load or front-load models are much more expensive but are water and energy savers, with front-load models having the best energy ratings. Front-load washers have a better spin which leaves less water in the load causing less drying time. High-efficiency models require low-sudsing HE detergent due to low water levels and they require a little more care. They also have more cycles and convenience features than traditional top-loaders. Warranty periods generally are a year regardless of washer style.

Refrigerator Efficiency


The efficiency of your refrigerator can be much better if you take the time to check out a few things before you buy or do a bit of maintenance on your refrigerator. The maintenance part I have covered in another tip, so I will just stick to the things that you can check when buying a new refrigerator in this tip.

Energy Star refrigerators will save you money. Look for a refrigerator rated with the energy star, when choosing a new model. Efficient refrigerators rated with the energy star are listed on the energy star website.

The style of the refrigerator will also make a difference in the refrigerator electric usage. A side-by-side refrigerator will use more energy then a top freezer model. The refrigerator electric usage is higher for those models with the two side-by side doors. If you look at the energy star list you can also see the energy kWh/year usage and see which models use the most electricity.

Some other things you can do so that your refrigerator work is less, includes checking the door seals, cleaning the condenser coils, checking the thermostat settings, and checking to see if you can turn off the door heaters if your refrigerator has them. Cracked or loose door seals will allow air to circulate outside the fridge, this uses more energy to keep the refrigerator cooling. Dirty condenser coils will cause the refrigerator compressor to work harder to cool the fridge. The door heaters also will make the refrigerator work harder to keep it cool inside. Adjusting the thermostats to 0- 5 degree F for the freezer and 36 -38 degrees F for the fridge side will keep your food fresh and still save energy.

Efficient refrigerators are great but they still need to be taken good care of by cleaning and servicing them regularly. Refrigerator electric is one of the biggest electric usages in most homes. Take some time to check over your refrigerator to help save some money on your electric bill.

The motor does not run constantly...should it cyle on and off and if so , how often


Hello Andy, thank you for your post!

By motor, are you referring to the compressor of your refrigerator? The compressor can run for longer periods of time and this is actually more energy efficient. Unlike older refrigerators that turned off and on frequently, newer models save energy from having to start up and shut off repeatedly. For example, diesel-powered trucks conserve fuel and energy and therefore have less engine wear and tear by keeping the motor running; much like newer energy efficient refrigerators. If the compressor is running on a more constant basis; it is maintaining the temperature within your refrigerator, rather than having to cut off and start again to adjust the temperature.

I hope this information explains your concern. However, should you feel that a service technician is needed; you may visit the manufacturer website to find a provider in your area that will look at your appliance.

Best regards, Chris!

Air Conditioner SEER Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio


Energy consumption for home air conditioning accounts for almost 5% of all the electricity produced in the USA. Energy Policy Act mandates minimum energy efficiency standards for commercial buildings, using research and standards developed by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air Conditioning Engineers. Energy Star qualified central air conditioners have a higher seasonal efficiency rating (SEER) than standard models, which makes them about 14% more efficient than standard models. Energy efficiency specialists with certified training on retrofits and energy savings on both residential and light commercial units may enable you to save up to 50 percent on your air conditioning bills with the use of a high efficiency energy system. Substantial energy savings can be obtained from more efficient systems.

SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) is related to the Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER), which is the ratio of output cooling in Btu/Hr and the input power in watts W at a given operating point and also to the coefficient of performance (COP) commonly used in thermodynamics. SEER rating more accurately reflects overall system efficiency on a seasonal basis and EER reflects the system’s energy efficiency at peak day operations.

The SEER rating is the Btu of cooling output during a typical cooling-season divided by the total electric energy input in watt-hours during the same period. SEER is related to the Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER), which is the ratio of output cooling in Btu/Hr and the input power in watts W at a given operating point and also to the coefficient of performance (COP) commonly used in thermodynamics. SEER rating more accurately reflects overall system efficiency on a seasonal basis and EER reflects the system’s energy efficiency at peak day operations. The higher the SEER number, the greater the efficiency of your unit. Therefore you will realize greater energy savings. The higher efficiency your product, the lower your long-term energy costs will be. Both central AC and air source heat pumps are rated according to seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER).

Before you consider upgrading your cooling equipment, the cheapest way to save money and energy from cooling is to reduce the need for mechanical air conditioning in the first place. Ask your contractor about a variable speed air handler, which will improve comfort and efficiency and allow continuous air filtering at minimum energy cost. Also, because ducts are often responsible for a lot of wasted energy, make sure you hire a contractor who knows about high-efficiency installations. If your central air conditioning unit is more than 12 years old, replacing it with an Energy Star qualified model could cut your cooling costs by 30 percent.

The refrigerator section does not cool well enough and food is rotting. Unit is around twenty years old minimum. Should I buy anew one or replace parts which was estimated at $4500?


Get a new one. Depending on the size you want, a new refrigerator will be cheaper and be much more efficient (energy usage) for the size. (Please note I'm assuming it is a household fridge ~25 cubic feet or less.)

Cindy Wells
(I have no idea on the prices for commercial refrigerators but the energy efficiency for the same size will also be greatly improved.)
