Household refrigerating appliances – Characteristics and test methods
|Publication Date:||1 December 2007|
|ICS Code (Domestic electrical appliances in general):||97.030|
This International Standard specifies the essential characteristics of household refrigerating appliances, factory-assembled and cooled by internal natural convection or forced air circulation, and establishes test methods for checking the characteristics. These are type tests, and because of this, when verification of the performance of a refrigerating appliance of a given type in relation to this standard is necessary, it is preferable, wherever practicable, that all the tests specified be applied to a single unit. The tests can also be made individually for the study of a particular characteristic.
NOTE For the safety requirements applicable to household refrigerating appliances, see IEC 60335-2-24; for noise requirements applicable to household refrigerators and freezers, see ISO 8960; and for additional safety requirements applicable to the refrigerating systems of household refrigerating appliances, see ISO 5149.
