# How many amps does a mini fridge use?

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, the average refrigerator uses approximately 725 watts of electricity and 15 to 20 amps, this adds up to approximately 10 percent or more of your utility bill.

In this manner, how much power does a mini fridge use?

Compact refrigerators, typically ranging from 1.7 to 4.4 cubic feet, receive an Energy Star rating when they consume no more than 239.42 kilowatt-hours per year for manual defrost versions, or up to 318.4 kWH/year for units with partial automatic defrost.

Subsequently, question is, can a refrigerator be on a 15 amp circuit? With a 110-volt current, a 750-watt appliance will require 6.8 amps to operate. A refrigerator will use roughly half of the available amperage of a standard 15-amp circuit, and over one-third of a 20-amp circuit.

Herein, how many amps does a refrigerator use?

6 amps

How many amps does a 1.7 cu ft refrigerator use?

from what I've gathered in my research is that you multiply amp consumption by 115-120 to find out wattage required for the unit. So if a 1.7 cubic ft. compact refrigerator says power consumption is . 7 amps, the wattage required to run it would be about 84 watts.
