How Cold Air Circulates In Frostless Refrigerators

In the top-freezer refrigerator model, the fin-and-tube refrigerator evaporator is located on the back wall of the freezer liner. The air moves from the evaporator through the air duct in freezer bottom. In the side-by-side refrigerator model, a thermostatic damper is often used to regulate the amount of chilled air which enters refrigerator compartment. A frostless freezer operate in the same manner as a frostless refrigerator except that the freezer has only one compartment and the evaporator plate may cover the entire rear wall or may form a double-hank fin-and-tube arrangement around the bottom of the refrigerator compartment. The refrigeration system and the controls are altered to attain the colder temperatures required in a freezer. The evaporator surface is larger and the refrigerator thermostats are calibrated to maintain a near-zero temperature. The larger ducting passageways in frost-free models often cover the entire rear wall of the single compartment. Some high-end fridge manufacturers also add a push-button device to lock the thermostat contacts until the freezer has reached a colder-than-normal temperature.
