# How many amps are needed to efficiently run a refrigerator?

Answer .
If you are talking about a certain kind or brand, look at the label inside the door. The label will tell you how many amps this unit will need. However all residen…tial refrigerators will run on a 15 amp dedicated circuit or be fine plugged into a regular 20 amp appliance circuit (which is required in kitchens). I have a large side by side unit and it only draws 6.6 amps max. Note that the starting current of an induction motor will be higher, of course, but will drop and stabilize at a "nominal" level within seconds.

# How many amps are needed to efficiently run a freezer?

The wattage and the voltage are required for this. Divide watts by volts this will give you the amperage

amps equals watts divided by volts.

Minimal 100. Depends on load draw of home. Can be 200 amps or 400amps as well.

# How many watts do you need to run a 1.1 amp fridge?

Your refrigerator is an AC induction motor. It will draw constant current whenever it is on (after starting which is much higher). However the power that it consumes depends o…n the torque on the motor's shaft, which in the case of your refrigerator depends on the temperature difference between your freezer and the radiator coils on the back or bottom of the fridge. As time goes on, dust collects on these coils and power consumption goes up. The correct answer to this question is 'some fraction of 120 volts * 1.1 amps = 132 watts or less.' The rest of the 1.1 amps of current represents energy which is borrowed from the line and returned to it at a different time during the AC cycle. The ratio between current*voltage and actual power consumed is referred to as power factor. Some devices like lights and heaters have a power factor very close to 1 because they do not borrow power from the line. Induction motors and transformers have power factors lower than 1.

# How many amps are needed to run an oven?

It depends on the power of the oven, so you'd need to know that first. Then the current = (power in Watts) / Voltage.

# How many amps does a dishwasher draw?

depends on the model of the dishwasher but their should be a label on your dishwasher that tells you the amps and voltage of your dishwasher hope this helped

# How many amps is needed to run 3200 watts?

Watts = Amps x Volts x Power Factor For a motor the Power Factor is less than 1 and might typically be about .75. For a resistive load like a toaster PF = 1. If you know the… Voltage and PF and know the wattage you can calculate amps. Amps = Watts / (Volts x PF)

# How many amps are needed to run a refrigerator?

A small kitchen refrigerator takes about 500 watts but only for 2-3minutes each hour. On a 240 v system that would be 3 amps, on 120 v6 amps.
