I'm trying to calculate the maximum current draw for an old chest freezer, as part of working out the requirements for an emergency generator.
The freezer (a Norfrost) doesn't have any model number visible, but does have this sticker on the compressor:
This suggests it draws 0.6A, so 144W at 240V - but that seems surprising low to me given that a similar new one is rated at 150W, and new appliances are supposed to be much more efficient than old ones.
Can I therefore assume it is correct, or is there something else in there that gives a better clue? Or do I need to get hold of a clamp meter and test it to be sure? Will the startup current be three times that (so 432W)?
