Refrigerators, which are meant for cooling, have their own compressor. Air from the compressor is pushed inside the compressor where it is cold and escapes out the other end into the cooler container. This makes it possible for refrigerators to be placed on top of other structures such as houses, garages or storage buildings. For domestic refrigerator purposes, refrigerators that have a freezer compartment under the hood seem to be more popular than those with the freezer compartment above the hood.
Refrigerators come in different sizes and shapes. Some models can accommodate many refrigerators. Domestic freezers range from small and compact ones made of plastic to large freezers designed for a commercial space. Refrigerators are powered either by gas or electricity. Many modern refrigerators come with single and double freezer compartments.
The first thing to do when installing a new refrigerator is to unplug it from the power source. Before starting to remove any components, be sure to turn off the main power supply. Then unscrew the back panel of the refrigerator to get access to the interior. Thoroughly clean the interior surfaces of the refrigerator before removing any components. There may be wires and cables sticking out of the refrigerator that can be snaked out without making too much of a mess. Once the interior is cleaned and prepped, remove any items from the refrigerator that can easily be placed somewhere else in the refrigerator.
Most refrigerators come equipped with thermostats. Thermostats are used to control the internal temperature of the fridge. Thermostats are usually located near the bottom of the refrigerator or on the side of the appliance, usually near the door. They use an electric signal to regulate the temperature inside the fridge. A fridge without a thermostat works off of natural temperature controls stored in the interior. Refrigerators with thermostats can be opened and closed as desired to change the temperature and prevent ice build up.
Refrigerators can be broken down into different sections: heat source (exterior), interior, condenser and compressor. A heat source keeps the refrigerator cold and contains the heat required to maintain the proper room temperature for the food stored inside. A heat source and interior compartment are usually separate and connected by a compartment that contains the condenser and compressor. The compressor and condenser are responsible for pumping cold air in and out of the refrigerator, which circulates the hot air inside the compartment. The interior of the refrigerator is completely sealed, while the exterior contains some space for air to flow through.
