How Long Should My Refrigerator Last?
While many companies provide at least a one-year warranty, it's almost certain that a new refrigerator will outlive this guarantee. A refrigerator should endure at least 10 years, according to trade organizations and manufacturers.
What Impacts a Refrigerator's Lifespan?
Quality & Components
A refrigerator's longevity is determined by the quality of its internal components and technology. For refrigerators and freezers, these components typically have a lifetime of 10 years or more.
Many of us have heard anecdotally of relatives, friends, and neighbors who have a much older kitchen appliance in their house, and you can typically anticipate longer appliance life if you spend a little more on the high-quality engineering of higher-end models.
The lifespan of an appliance is also determined by how it is used. Properly filling your refrigerator, keeping the door shut as much as possible, and cleaning your refrigerator regularly can all impact your fridge’s lifespan.
Some smart refrigerators can give advice you to lessen the burden on the heat exchanger which keeps the refrigerator cold, extending its life. These features such as a door alert if you leave the refrigerator open too long and artificial intelligence technology, which personalizes your temperature preferences based on what you are storing are available.
