Older Amana Fridge

3 posts in this topic

We  bought a house in FL with an older Amana Refridgerator, Model #TG18V1W.  I was given NO papers on this fridge.   With hurricane season approaching, most everyone is purchasing portable generators. (I have 2 small ones). 

I have been unable to find exactly howmany watts this fridge uses.  It is NOT on the official tag/info plate inside the fridge.   I need this info so I can set up my generators without overloading them.

Does not the tag give the amps???  This would tell you how many amps it will draw off of your generator.  This can be converted to watts if necessary but seems like the amp draw would be the value to use.

If this information isn't on the model number tag as Pegi suggested, then you can definitely find it on the compressor tag.  It will give max current draw.  Assume a power factor of 0.85 and find the wattage by: W = E * I * PF where

W= watts

E= volts, 120vac

I= current, from the tag

PF= power factor, assumed.
