    Refigerator Climate Type


    I have seen climate type SN, N, ST and T in refrigerators. Can anyone give me a reference to find out what they are?

    I believe that they relate to ambient operating conditions and understand (have been told) that they relate to SN = 25C; N = 32C; ST 38C and T 43C. Are these numbers correct?

    Yes, You are right, these are climate class, you can find these details in EN 153 Standard. If you dont have then reply. I will send you the same.

    Not exactly:
    Climate class of fridge freezers

    Every fridge freezer has a 'climate class', which tells you the range of room temperatures with which it can cope. The two you're most likely to come across in the UK are N class and SN class. Both work effectively in room temperatures up to 32C.
    N models shouldn't be used in rooms that become colder than 16C. SN models shouldn't be used at room temperatures below 10C.
    Other classes that you might come across are ST and T. ST models work best at between 18C and 38C, and T models between 18C and 43C.

    If you could that would be much appreciated.

    nike123 thanks for that

    The question relates to a caravan I just bought and am using in Australia. Sydney (where I live) HVAC design is 32CDB. Tropical North Queensland could be 40's. My fridge is an SN and stopped working (everything defrosted) when ambient went to low 30's.

    Trying to work out if I have a case of wrong climate class against the manufacturer of the van to get fridge changed.
