How Many Amps Does a Refrigerator Use?

Answer

After the air conditioner, the refrigerator is the second-largest user of electricity. Unlike other appliances, you cannot simply just use it less to save energy. When an ice maker is on, the usage is increased even more. Refrigerators today are made to be more efficient. The best modern models use less than half of what older models used. How many amps a refrigerator will use does vary depending on the manufacturer and model. To determine amps, you will take the watts and divide it by the volts.
