Capacity Measurement and Energy Consumption Test Methods for Household Refrigerators and Combination Refrigerator-Freezers
This is the second edition of CSA Standard C300, Capacity Measurement and Energy Consumption Test Methods for Household Refrigerators and Combination Refrigerator-Freezers, and it supersedes the previous edition published in 1978. Several changes have been made to the test procedures as a result of experience gained in the use of the Standard. These changes are identified by a line in the margin. Not so marked are editorial changes and the converted values in the drawings.
Scope and Purpose
The purpose of this Standard is to specify methods to be used in measuring the capacity and energy consumption and testing the performance of electrically operated household refrigerators and combination refrigerator—freezers in support of a consumer informative labelling program.
This Standard includes methods for measuring the capacity and methods for testing electrically operated refrigerators designed for a 60 Hz alternating current supply with a nominal system voltage of 120 V.
The requirements in this Standard are not applicable to electrically operated refrigerators employing an absorption refrigeration system.
