What size amp should be used for a fridge freezer?
Most refrigerator/freezers are plugged into a kitchen receptacle on a 20 amp circuit. If you have something bigger you may find the information you need on the nameplate, which is usually a metal plate attached to the appliance in a non conspicuous location (back or underneath) with important electrical information.

For a standard fridge, a dedicated single pole 15 or 20 amp breaker will do the job.
at prescribed periodic intervals
That is not home wiring. I would use 4/00 gauge. A 750MCM wire with an insulation factor of 90 degrees C is rated at 500 amps. A parallel run of two 500MCM will give you 10…00 amp capacity.
A 350 MCM copper wire with an insulation factor of 90 degrees C is rated at 325 amps. If the question is referring to maintaining a load of 300 amps then you have to up size t…he wire size because the conductor is only allowed to be loaded to 80%. A 500MCM copper wire with an insulation factor of 90 degrees C is rated at 395 amps x 80% = 316 amps.
The wire size for 600 amps on a single wire 1250 MCM. A 1250 MCM copper conductor is rated for 645 amps with an insulation rating of 90 degrees C. This size of wire is too lar…ge to handle easily when it comes to the terminations. A service requiring 600 amps is usually paralleled or tripled which reduces the wire size which makes the wire much easier to handle. For a parallel service two 350 MCM cables are used and for a triple parallel run three 2/0 conductors are used. These conductors all have an insulation rating of 90 degrees C.
take amps x volts=watts
No larger than a child's hand (in my opinion).
For the 120 volt outlets on the wall use a 20 amp breaker wiredwith AWG #12 wire. The circuit must be GFCI protected. Any 240 voltoutlets must be wired according to what they …will be powering.
AWG # 1/0 copper or aluminum.
Different manufactures have different freezer components. Check the appliance's nameplate to get an accurate amperage of the unit.
Neither for too long, in the fridge it'll melt, in the freezer it will be solid. Your safest switching it between the two every so often or just finishing it.
Yes, but it will make the food hot.
freezer for a little while
is there a town named anywhere in the united states:
If your fridge would not start, but the freezer works just fine,check its back-wall for traces of frost, or the condenser coils fordust blockage.
Compound butter is stored in the fridge for a short period, but can store longer in a freezer.
