I have small-sized kitchen, built-in refrigerator so great vacated the seat.Now we enjoy a dinner of all our happy family.And that previously had to turn dinner))).To mark not tied, we have Samsung satisfied !!!


We live in a rented apartment, so opted for a separate cooler.We often have to move, so as I would not like to have a built-in refrigerator until it is impractical.


I work in the office, which is characterized by the severity of the interior, and stand-alone refrigerator there already does not fit, it is somehow at home.Here we found a way out.Disguise a small built-in refrigerator under the nightstand.)))


I like to frequent changes of the situation, often do repairs, so a refrigerator purchased a detached white, unnecessarily expensive for our family every two years to buy a new refrigerator.But I can dream up with decorative stickers.

How many cameras should be in the refrigerator?

Refrigerators house are of three types - a single-chamber and dual-chamber, three-compartment.

-in refrigerators - is a refrigerator with a large refrigerator compartment and a smaller - freezer.This refrigerator may be suitable for a small family garden.

refrigerator - this is the most common type.He has a refrigerator and freezer separately located.Freezer can be positioned up or down.If you frequently use the freezer and refrigerator's high, then the admissibility of an option with bottom freezer, where the number of boxes can be from two to four, allowing you to store different products separately.

The three-chamber refrigerators added zero zone - which is also very convenient.The products do not freeze, but to keep them secure.


refrigerator I changed specifically that it was a zone of freshness.Very handy thing.I was there the cheese stored permanently!Meat in the evening and bought put in the zero zone, and in the morning doing what I want.I have not been waiting for defrosting and do not fear that the product will deteriorate.And just as a fish!


And we, the old fashioned way, my wife and I prefer classic, single-chamber refrigerator.Ehh!The habit is difficult to rebuild the old men, well, we are very satisfied!Hopefully, in our century will suffice.


Since I'm thrifty housewife and my husband, and two children, I chose the refrigerator with the lower chamber, and three shelves, I have there and full of meat and fruit compotes is frozen and semifinished products for the family harvested.All full and happy!

What management choose, electromechanical or electronic?

Management refrigerators carried out by means of electronic and electromechanical devices.

electromechanical control - this is the usual thermostat division from 1 to 7, which we put out manually, depending on what temperature we want to expose.

Benefits: Very reliable and easy to manage, and protected from power surges, and what is its advantage.That is why many people prefer to just such a control, it can still be called semi-automatic.

Disadvantages: inability to maintain an exact temperature.

electronic control usually has a built-in panel on the door of the refrigerator with the display of the dial, which shows the temperature in the refrigerator and has control buttons.

Benefits: precise temperature control that extends the safety of products, and allows you to set different temperatures in individual cells, humidity control.Alarm, which is triggered when the temperature rises or the doors are open, self-diagnostics.

Disadvantages: as the electronic control consists of a plurality of LEDs, touch buttons, ie the structure is complex, so it makes great demands on power quality.Surges lead to damage and costly repairs.

Do electronically controlled fridge -otzyvy:


As regards electronic and conventional control, it's just.From time immemorial in the refrigerator thermostat is a bellows with a gas that expands and contracts with temperature.At elevated temperatures, the bellows presses the switch and includes a compressor is lowered - off.

Well refrigerators electronically controlled are temperature sensors in each chamber, which receives a signal from the processor, the temperature is calculated and compared with a predetermined.Therefore, any deviation from the desired temperature is less than one degree.Which allows to make the area of ​​freshness, in which the temperature is above zero degrees on the fraction, it does not freeze independently of the other settings of the refrigerator.


New is best.Progress is moving forward.Electronics better and more accurately maintains the temperature in the chambers.Know-frost - a "freeze dry" (literally "without ice").In addition to a slight decrease of the chamber no more flaws not noticed.


Acquired Samsung to set the display on the front of the refrigerator temperature is displayed with an accuracy of one degree.I can also put different temperatures in the chambers.I can not get enough of this acquisition.Together with a refrigerator purchased a voltage regulator to prevent power surges.Since we were warned that the voltage drops are dangerous for these refrigerators.
