As the temperatures rise, we will have to keep the refrigerator on propane when the air is running (and probably the water heater too).
The humming coming from the refrigerator was related to the electrical problem so running it on propane is the easiest solution. We are going out again this weekend so hopefully more careful attention on our part will solve the problem.
Is it a residential model?
I think he's pulling your chain.
Typical residential fridge draws around 6 amps.
If your fridge is drawing near 20 amps if they even checked then there's something wrong with it
I have a residential style and a rv absorption fridge both in my camper and I can run the both with a/c
You've not solved the power consumption yet sorry.
