Refrigerator Radiation

    Please can you tell me why the new-style fridge gives off rf radiation, and the old-style one does not? Thank you.

    Many new appliances (cookers, washing machines, dishwashers etc) are being fitted with RF transmitters so that they can send information to the new smart meters. Unfortunately this is not just a “fridge problem” …..

    Dear Lloyd, I purchased a new Sub Zero refrigerator two years ago. Is there any way to protect ourselves and the food we consume? Thank you. Sandra

    Hi Sandra
    If you are worried about RF radiation from your refrigerator then the only way that you can be sure that you are not being exposed is to test with an RF meter. If after testing you find that your fridge is emitting RF radiation then there is really not much you can do except to look to replace it with a radiation free model…most skilled electricians would have difficulty removing the smart transmitter.

    Is there a listing available of transmitter-free kitchen appliances? I am electro-sensitive and am putting in a new kitchen.

    Currently there is no legal requirement for this information to be disclosed but the Energy Star rating will soon have provision for new generation home appliances that have wireless connectivity it will say “connected” or words to that effect. In the meantime measuring with an RF meter is the only way of knowing if the device your are wanting to buy emits radiation, see http://www.electricsense.com/3033/rf-radiation-from-power-transmitters-in-smart-appliances/

    I have done EMF readings on refrigerators. I will get a reading between 14 to 50 milliguase dependent on the refrigerator. But… when I measure a little while later it reads zero. Is there a reason for this?

    Dale Zilar–I have the same experience when measuring the magnetic fields from our refrigerator. At first I thought it was only high when I could hear the fridge running, but that doesn’t appear to be the only time that the fields are high. I also do not find it emitting RF–only ac magnetic fields.
