Low power (under-voltage) will certainly damage any refrigeration appliance’s compressor. The Fridge Guard protects your appliance by disconnecting the power when it goes below unacceptable level. Additionally, there is a delay when power returns to normal. This will ensure that the appliance is not switched on-off repeatedly during fluctuations nor is it subjected to a massive surge normally experienced when power returns after power cuts.
These conditions are harmful to fridges, freezers, pumps and all motor equipment. By disconnecting the power when it is bad, the FRIDGEGUARD safeguards against short term and long term damage to ensure higher efficiency from your appliances. 90 seconds start-up delay is built-in to protect against frequent fluctuations to ensure proper compressor shutdown and start-up.
