Title:
REFRIGERATOR EQUIPPED WITH THAWING FUNCTION
Document Type and Number:
Japanese Patent JPH0666465
Kind Code:
A
Abstract:

PURPOSE: To ensure optimum thawing by providing a temperature sensor for detecting temperature in a refrigerator and target temperature control means.

CONSTITUTION: A temperature sensor Th detects temperature in a refrigerator, and target temperature control means changes the temperature in the refrigerator upon thawing in response to a result of the detection. More specifically, if the temperature is greatly lowered when an article to be thawed is accomodated, then the control means judges the amount of cold heat of the article to be greater and hence raises the target temperature to promote the thawing while if the temperature is less lowered, then it judges the amount of cold heat of the article to be smaller, and hence lowers the target temperature to prevent the article from being kept at high temperature excessively. Hereby, optimum thawing is ensured irrespective of time amount of cold heat.
