Siemens American Style Fridge Freezer Information

Some fridges and American style fridge freezers such as Siemens are now divided into four zones to store different types of food:

-18 °C (0 °F) (freezer)
0 °C (32 °F) (meats)
5 °C (40 °F) (fridge)
10 °C (50 °F) (vegetables)
The capacity of a fridge is measured in either litres or cubic feet (US). Typically the volume of a combined American style fridge freezer is split to 100 litres (3.53 cubic feet) for the freezer and 140 litres (4.94 cubic feet) for the fridge, although these values are highly variable.

Temperature settings for American style fridge and freezer compartments are often given arbitrary numbers (for example, 1 through 9, warmest to coldest) by manufacturers, but generally 2 to 8 °C (36 to 46 °F) is ideal for the fridge compartment and -18 °C (0 °F) for the freezer. Some fridges require a certain external temperature (60 °F) to run properly. This can be an issue when placing a fridge in an unfinished area such as a garage.

European American style fridge freezers, and fridges with a freezer compartment, have a four star rating system to grade American style fridge freezers.

* : max temperature = -6°C. Maximum storage time for frozen food is 1 week
** : max temperature = -12°C. Maximum storage time for frozen food is 1 month
*** : max temperature = -18°C. Maximum storage time for frozen food is 3 months
*(***) : max temperature = -18°C. Maximum storage time for frozen food is up to 12 months
Although both the three and four star ratings specify the same maximum temperature of -18°C, only a four star freezer is intended to be used for freezing fresh food. Three (or fewer) stars are used for frozen food compartments which are only suitable for storing frozen food; introducing fresh food into such a compartment is likely to result in unacceptable temperature rises.Later advances included automatic ice units and self compartmentalized freezing units.

An increasingly important environmental concern is the disposal of old fridges - initially because of the freon coolant damaging the ozone layer, but as the older generation of fridges disappears it is the destruction of CFC-bearing insulation which causes concern. Modern fridges usually use a refrigerant called HFC-134a (1,2,2,2-tetrafluoroethane) instead of freon, which has no ozone layer depleting properties.

Disposal of discarded fridges is regulated, often mandating the removal of doors: children playing hide-and-seek have been asphyxiated while hiding inside a discarded fridge. This was particularly true for the older models that had latching doors. More modern units use a magnetic door gasket to hold the door sealed but can actually be pushed open from the inside. However, children can be unwittingly harmed by hiding inside any discarded fridge
