asked in category: General Last Updated: 15th March, 2020# How many amps does a mini fridge use?

**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.
