One of many reasons why I have a surge guard on my unit. It has over/under voltage protection. Should voltage drop below 102v or rise above 132v for more than 8 seconds, power to the unit is turn off. It saved us last year when camping in Florida where an old pedestal had excessive low voltage and the surge guard would not allow power to the unit. Management repaired the pedestal. We would of never realized the problem until our electrical and electronics were fried.
The service manual for the RM 1350 states,"The refrigerator is a 120 volt AC, 60 Hz appliance. The proper operating range is 100 to 132 volts. If voltage drops below 100 volts, cooling efficiency will decrease relative to voltage decrease." While low voltage may be sufficient for this refrigerator, it may damage other electrical items, such as AC in the unit as stated in the other postings.
