Why is the freezer at the the top of the fridge?
It is less expensive to manufacture the freezer on top. Better, and more expensive, refrigerators have the freezer on the bottom or, of course, a side by side.

For climate control It is because light doesn't only give light but warmth. The fridgeis okay since it doesn't have to be totally cold but in thefreezer, it has to be. It can… depend on what type of fridge orfreezer you have. Some have a light in it, it is a matter ofwhether that model has one or not. Another answer: The light would freeze in the freezer causing you problems.
It was invented in 1947.
One possible reason is because of the size of the freezer compared to the size of the refrigerator portion. If the refrigerator portion were placed over the freezer, then you …would have to kneel down to use the freezer. Another part of it could pertain to convection. Cold air tends to circulate down. So with the right amount of gap between the freezer portion and the rest, just enough cold air can flow down to cool the refrigerator. So the evaporator coils are only in the freezer and yet can cool the entire unit. If the evaporator coils were on the bottom, then only the lower portion of the refrigerator would be cool since heat rises, and some of the cavity space would be wasted. So for simplicity and efficiency, the coils are placed on top and that this area is made the freezer. So they cool only the freezer and have a small opening to let the cold air come down (or warm air to come up to be more accurate) to reach the 34-38 degrees Fahrenheit needed for the refrigerator. Sometimes there is an adjustable damper there. The thermostat is just for the refrigerator in most cases, since if the refrigerator is within proper range, the freezer would be too, all because of the design. On those with a control for the freezer, that control generally moves a little damper (door). So the colder you set the freezer, the harder you are making the refrigerator portion to cool. Since the actual thermostat is located in the refrigerator section, the longer the compressor must run to make that compartment the proper temperature when you close the damper (by setting the freezer control colder).
Yes. The short waves that bounce around inside the oven should be well shielded from penetrating the freezer ice. Heat from the freezer coils rises, but that should not harm t…he microwave. Neither device should have any negative impact on the other in that configuration.
No you freeze it either in the oven or a high heated microwave.
Most of the drawers come out by pulling them out and lifting it up off of the track at the end, and then continue to pull it out.
Yes, no problem, as long as there is sufficient air flow behind them to dissipate the heat.
hey the problem is that the fridge has a chemical called ftg. If you let it go into the environment everybody will die from it
it doesn't its a reaction of the cold air in your freezer hitting the warmer air of your house
The freezers are generally located at the top of the refrigerators so as to easily circulate the cool air downwards as cold air always goes down and warm air rises to keep the… refrigerators cold.
It is a safety issue. Food needs to be taken care of and stored at certain temperatures to prevent the growth of bacteria in the food. The way to be sure that this is happenin…g is to take readings on a regular basis.
Each has a different temperature setting, so each needs its own thermostat.
75 percent of Americans prefer a side by side fridge freeze over a top freezer model. Since this is the modern way, and the freezer will fit much more in it when it is side by… side, as well as the fridge, it has more shelves, and looks better than the top freezer models.
Fridges and freezers can be bought online at retail providers. Sears has them listed online on their website, as well as in their stores. This can also be said for Home Depot …and Lowe's.
There are many different types of fridges and freezers. Some fridges come with the refrigerator on the side next to the freezer. Also, some freezers are located at the botto…m of the refrigerator, and some at the top.
Liebherr refrigerators and freezers can be purchased at the following retailers: John Lewis, Amazon, Amazon Marketplace, Appliance City, as well as Currys.
