to run too much:
Is the condenser,
behind the refrigerator,
free of dust
and Irnt?
On hot days, or If the room IS warm, the motor naturally runs longer
If the door has been opened
a lot, or if a large
amount
of food has been put In, the motor will run
longer to cool down the interior
Remember:
Motor running time depends
on dlfferent things: number
of door openings,
amount
of
food stored, temperature
of the room, setting of the
controls
And, your new refrrgerator
may be larger than your
old one so it has more space to be cooled.
It also has
a regular
freezer instead of a frozen food cornpar+
ment. All this means better refrigeration
and may require more running time than your old one
