Fridges and Freezers in Australia

An information site for British Migrants to Australia, providing information since October 2005. Post Content follows this advert.

Most, if not all, of the Fridges and Freezers in Australia will have a classification rating, based on the ambient temperature that they are designed to operate in.
Each Unit should have a visible rating plate, showing the Temperature Class, normally with 1 or 2 letters, but maybe using the class rating name.

  • SN = 10°C to 32°C (Extended Temperature)
  • N = 16°C to 32°C (Temperate)
  • ST = 18°C to 38°C (Subtropical)
  • T = 18°C to 43°C (Tropical)

On checking my two fridge/freezers, I found that I have one that is “T” and one that is “N”.   My reason for looking into this today, is that my “N” rated unit has just died, and I am looking into replacing it.  As it is kept in the garage, the temperature often exceeds the ambient maximum of 32°C, so the next one must be a “T” rating, to keep energy use down (electricity cost) and maybe a longer life.
