Why A Modern Refrigerator Needs More Service?

The Kelvinator was 'the coolest one' in the 80’s, but Indians today are spoilt for choice in refrigerators. Every brand in the world is wanting to own a share of the refrigerator pie - be it Whirlpool, LG, Hitachi, Samsung, or our very own indigenous brands like the Videocon and Godrej refrigerator.

While the fridge of the 80’s lasted decades without needing repair, the newer technologies although better in several aspects, require Repair quite often.

Let us understand how has the fridge changed from its earlier generation that has made it so vulnerable.

What has changed in the Refrigerator since the 80's

The movable parts: the most obvious change is to the movable parts in the fridge - the trays, shelves, ice trays in the refrigerators were earlier made of robust unbreakable metal in the 80's. They are now made of plastic and the plastic parts are delicate and susceptible to easy breakage (compared to metal).

The electricity consumption: The current refrigerators are designed considering the environment norms and are more electricity efficient. The Energy star ratings have made it easy to quantify and share the electricity consumption ratings of the refrigerators to the consumers.

The Condenser and the Compressor:  Several decades ago the condensers used to be at the top which was good because the hot air would rise up and away from the unit. However the trendy looking units now have the condensers at the bottom of the fridge. This design change definitely adds to its appearance but it is not the most logical place to be.

This change has resulted in the refrigerators to be more susceptible to early failure due to multiple reasons:

  • the horizontal condenser has to completely rely on the fan for heat exchange unlike natural cooling means

  • as the hot air tends to rise, it now flows around the fridge unit causing its outer body to heat up

  • the coils are exposed to lot of dust resulting in early compressor failure.

  • at the bottom the coils are not easily visible and hence can't be cleaned regularly

The refrigerant gas: The positive aspect of the modern refrigerators is the use of refrigerant called HFC-134a. Unlike Freon this does not deplete the ozone layer, which helps protect the planet from harmful effect of naturally occurring radiation.
