I have read that in order to keep the fridge cool, one only needs to power up the fridge for an hour at different time intervals. I'm just curious if anyone knows what intervals work the best. Every 4 Hours. 6, 8 ?




It would depend on how much it is open when power is off. Once it is not cold anymore it can take 24 hours running to get it back to where it should be. So maybe never open it unless you are running its power at the time. Freeze some ice packs in the freezer, and put them into the fridge as soon as you lose power, and just open the door quick enough the throw them in at the top so the cold air will sink to the bottom.

Items you may want to have available, such as milk, half-n-half, cheese, juice, BEER, put into a cooler with ice so you won't be opening the fridge door every 15 minutes to get something.



Eggs are actually OK at room temperature as long as the shells are not cracked.
