Would a 120 volt single phase 60 Hz refrigerator be able to run on a 120 volt single phase 50 Hz power cycle without running into any issues?

  • The answer to the question as posted is probably 'it depends'. You might get a better answer on Electrical Engineering, but only if you can post a photograph of any power rating label you can find on the refrigerator. – user90371 Mar 25 '19 at 19:52

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it does not appear to be about traveling within the scope defined in the help center. – choster Mar 25 '19 at 20:19

    @choster I always travel with my refrigerator, don't you? The real art is in getting the gate staff to allow you to carry it on so you don't have to pay excess baggage fees! – Doc Mar 25 '19 at 20:46

    @Doc Tony, is that you? – rvs Mar 25 '19 at 21:06

    @DavidRicherby All true, but it's relatively easy and cheap to drop voltage from 240v 50Hz across a transformer. A frequency change takes a lot more effort. – user90371 Mar 26 '19 at 3:08
