EZ Freeze Burner Assembly

The EZ Freeze Propane Refrigerator burner assembly is constructed of corrosion resistant materials. The burner tube itself is made from Stainless Steel. Eliminating the possibility of corrosion allows the system to burn cleaner therefore keeping your propane refrigerator performance to it’s maximum.EZ Freeze Gas Refrigerators burner assembly - Images by Warehouse Appliance, experts of off-grid appliances and gas fridge sales and service Corrosion can not only foul the burner slots but also attack the inside of the burner tube and create unwanted turbulence. The flame will then burn foul and put off soot and high levels of carbon monoxide.

The burner housing and brackets are also made from Stainless Steel material allowing for easy maintenance during service. This practice is unique to any other gas refrigerator manufacturer.

The EZ Freeze gas refrigerator burner assembly removes from the refrigerator absorption cooling unit with only one screw. This is great for servicing gas refrigerators. Nothing to disassemble or realign during regular routine propane refrigerator maintenance.

A flame viewing window is incorporated into the assembly to allow easy viewing from the rear of your gas fridge. A flip up shutter closes to keep out unwanted debris.

The entire Orifice Assembly of these gas refrigerators are made from solid brass also reducing the corrosion factor and increasing lifespan. One of just many things to consider when finding a propane refrigerator for sale. Please note that the natural gas refrigerator parts are slightly different than the above image.

EZ Freeze Gas Refrigerator Parts – Orifice Information

Info on the EZ Freeze Orifice

The gas orifice is a very important part of any gas fridge.  EZ Freeze propane refrigerators all include a very precise orifice in the burner system that is unmatched in the industry. The Orifice includes a ruby gemstone tip, all brass construction, internal filter and pressure test port.

EZ Freeze Propane Refrigerator Parts - Gas orifice information for gas fridges from Warehouse Appliance - the off-grid appliance experts!

– Ruby Gemstone Tip –
EZ Freeze has these orifices manufactured specifically for a propane  refrigerator. The brass body of the orifice is bored out to accept a very precise ruby gemstone that has been laser-cut to the specific size. This process ensures that each orifice is virtually same size with the proper BTU output.

– Internal Filter –
Any slight change in size of the orifice hole will lower the performance of the gas refrigerator. This includes debris that may migrate into the orifice through the gas lines. This debris can be from a dirty tank, dirt or debris in the plumbing, or just left over material from construction or manufacturing. To ensure this does not cause the EZ Freeze gas refrigerators to loose their reliable performance, the orifice hole is protected by a micro fine filter screen just upstream from the ruby tip.

– Pressure Test Port –
This port allows diagnosis of the gas system using a manometer at the orifice while the gas refrigerator is in operation. This is the best way to detect a bad regulator or thermostat.

EZ Freeze fridge maintenance is cut down to a minimum due to the precision of this solid brass orifice.

EZ Freeze Gas Refrigerator Controls – Lighting Instructions

Posted on Leave a comment

The controls of the EZ Freeze propane refrigerator are located on the front of the unit at the bottom. All are hidden by the door or a removable panel. The controls include the Thermostat Control (shown as “Temp” within the gas refrigerator parts image below) which controls the temperature of both the refrigerator and freezer compartment. It adjusts the amount of refrigerant running through the system by controlling the high and low flame of the burner. The refrigerant of the absorption system is an ammonia and water solution that flows via gravity from the top of the freezer to the refrigerator section below and absorbing all the hot air. The higher the temperature control is set the more the flame will stay on high and produce more refrigerant, therefore making the interior colder.

The Gas Safety Shut-Off Valve on the EZ Freeze propane refrigerator (shown as “Gas” in the image) is magnetically-controlled by an electromagnet that is feed millivolts via the thermocouple. The thermocouple is heated by the flame and produces the small amount of electricity to power the magnet. If the flame is extinguished and the thermocouple does not sense heat, then the electromagnet will release and shut-off the gas supply. This prevents any unburned gas from escaping into the room.

The Piezo Igniter of the EZ Freeze Propane Refrigerator (shown as “Spark” in the image) is a self-powered, non-electric spark generator. It’s very similar to what propane BBQ’s use. By pushing this button, the Piezo Igniter will produce a spark to light the flame.

 

Lighting An EZ Freeze Gas Refrigerator

The First Time After the set-up of the unit is complete, use the following procedure to light the burner. First time lighting may take longer than usual due to the air that may be in the gas lines.

Turn on the gas valve at the rear of the gas refrigerator

To start the gas refrigerator, turn the thermostat knob “Temp” (Thermostat) to the #2 setting

Push and hold “Gas” (Gas Safety Valve) button, and then…

Press the “Spark ” (Piezo Igniter) button continuously 5 to 10 times to light burner. Confirm the flame is lit by viewing through the flame “Viewer”. It should be possible to hear a slight turbulent noise from the flame. If the burner is lit, continue holding the “Gas ” button for 5-15 seconds. Release the “Gas” button and confirm the burner is still lit. If the burner does not light, repeat steps 1 through 4.

We recommend that owners take a good look at the flame upon initial start up and note its size and color for future reference. It is good practice to visually check the flame for this size and color upon every start up.

Hand Lighting….

If for some reason the unit will not light with the piezo ignition or the igniter is failing to spark, it is possible to hand light the burner. This usually requires two people. Simply use the above procedure and replace “Spark ” Button with a person at the burner with a lighter.

This type of refrigerator uses manual operation. Setting the temperature information is here and the manual defrosting information is here.

Full-time use of a gas refrigerator in your home

Posted on

Full-time use of a gas refrigerator in the homeWhile many propane refrigerators have been used in RVs, cabins and vacation homes, there is a growing number of households that have made a complete transition from electric to gas refrigerators. Warehouse Appliance discusses full-time use of gas refrigerators in your home.

The initial startup up rules are basically the same for the full-time gas refrigerator user as they are for those who supplement with gas:

  • Don’t fill up the fridge with any food or liquids that are not already cold or frozen.
  • Keep the door of the fridge closed as much of the time as possible.
  • Set the temperature setting to the maximum.

Make sure you adhere to the above rules when you bring groceries home from your regular shopping trips. It is always best to load the food goods in smaller amounts. Try to do this at timed intervals. Ambient temperature food should be loaded at no more than 10 pounds every 2 hours. Also, make sure to stabilize your temperature and thermostat setting. Keep your eye on the refrigerator interior temperatures. In a gas refrigerator, the thermostat setting will mostly affect the refrigerator compartment temperatures. The freezer will not have a thermostat.

Temperature setting is accomplished by the thermostat that is at the very bottom on the outside front near or behind the kick plate. The control panel is labeled with numbers that are merely a reference and do not correspond with the actual temperature.

Whether you go with a gas refrigerator part-time or full-time, Warehouse Appliance is here to help and answer any of your questions. If you’re thinking about purchasing a propane refrigerator or have questions about the one you already own, call the gas appliance experts at Warehouse Appliance today at 928-636-1955.

Why you need a propane refrigerator

Warehouse Appliance is the leader in propane refrigerators and has the best warranty in the business.Who knows why you need a propane refrigerator better than the leader in propane refrigerators? As the industry leader, Warehouse Appliance, can help you select the right propane fridge for your cabin, vacation home, RV or hunting camp.

Reasons to own a gas fridge

  • Gas refrigerators are quiet – Since gas refrigerators don’t have a compressor they are completely quiet.
  • You live off grid – With no conventional means of energy to power an electric refrigerator, you’re limited to where you can live, but a gas refrigerator doesn’t confine your choices. Unlike electricity, no matter where you are, you can transport and easily store the fuel necessary for operating a gas fridge.
  • Your location is prone to power outages – For some of us, every year brings tornadoes, hurricanes, fires and floods. Even in the city, homeowners experience power outages – but it won’t matter if you have a propane refrigerator. Gas refrigerators keep on running, keeping your food items cold and safe. If you’ve suffered extended power outages, you know that replacing a refrigerator full of spoiled food is expensive.
  • Gas refrigerators are efficient – Not only do they run colder than a conventional fridge, but they have far fewer running parts than a compressor system. Fewer parts mean fewer failures. In fact, there are virtually no moving parts in a propane gas refrigeration system.

Considering all these reasons, anyone can see that choosing a gas fridge is a smart choice. No matter where you live, whether in the heart of the city, off the grid, or on the road, Warehouse Appliance can help you select the right size fridge to meet your family’s needs.

Using propane in your home

Posted on

Propane for appliances in your homeDid you know that there is an efficient, safe, and reliable alternative to electricityfor many appliances? Warehouse Appliance would like to tell you about using propane in your home.

Because of its safety, efficiency, and dependability, many people are using propane to go off the grid. Others use propane to supplement the electricity in their home. Propane is also a very affordable solution that’s ideal for families who want to minimize their carbon footprint and go a little greener.

There are many benefits you will receive by using propane in your home. Here are several:

  • You will save money. Heating your water with propane rather than electricity will save you approximately 30 percent of your water heating costs per year. A propane clothes dryer will save you about 50 percent compared with the use of an electric dryer. You’ll save plenty by using a gas refrigerator, too.
  • Propane is safe. Propane tanks are 20 times more puncture resistant than those used for gasoline, ethanol, and methanol. Home propane tanks are often buried. If you do experience a propane leak, the added odorant (similar to the smell of rotten eggs) will help you detect it so you can get it repaired.
  • Versatility. When people think of propane, outdoor grills often come to mind. but propane fuels many household appliances: home heating or your boiler, your fireplace, clothes dryer, range, refrigerator and your oven can all run on propane. If your home is equipped to use propane, you have a wide range of choices available.
  • Propane is environmentally safe. Propane is listed as a clean fuel in the 1990 Clean Air Act and the Energy Policy Act of 1992. In fact, propane burns cleaner than any other fossil fuel.

Warehouse Appliance would be happy to answer any questions you may have about gas refrigerators and propane appliances. We are here to help you as you consider the advantages of using propane in your home. Call the gas appliance experts at Warehouse Appliance today at 928-636-1955.

Why people choose propane refrigerators

Posted on

Warehouse Appliance can help you choose the right propane refrigerator for your home or cabin.Have you heard of propane refrigerators but don’t really understand why people choose them? Warehouse Appliance, the leader in propane refrigerators, can help you understand why and how to select a propane refrigerator that is perfect for remote cabins, vacation homes, hunting camps, or your RV.

Here are some of the reasons people choose propane refrigerators.

  • You live off the grid.
  • You don’t like the noise an electric refrigerator makes.
  • You have considered the efficiency of a gas fridge.
  • Your home is subject to natural disasters and power outages.

One of the most basic necessities in life is food. The need for food storage is practical, and how food is stored affects your health. Cold food storage when done properly is important for healthy living. Consider all these reasons and you will see why a gas fridge is right for you.

All refrigerators must run from an energy source. One of the gas fridge advantages is how easy it is to store propane and unlike electricity, it can be transported. While most homeowners run the risk of losing electricity during a thunderstorm, the propane refrigerator will continue running, keeping your perishables fresh.

One power outage of more than two days can completely decimate your food supply in your electric fridge. With the cost of food within the fridge being upwards of $500, it pays to have a gas fridge as a backup unit.

The myth that a gas refrigerator does not cool as well as an electric is not true. Not only will they run colder than an electric unit, the absorption unit has far fewer parts than an electric compressor system. Fewer parts mean less chance of a failure. Other than the thermostat, there are virtually no moving parts within the propane gas refrigeration system.

Warehouse Appliance has the largest inventory of gas refrigerators in the U.S., and we can help you find the right gas fridge for you. We would be happy to answer any questions you may have about gas refrigerators and propane appliances. We are here to help you as you consider the advantages of using propane in your home.

Now is a good time to switch to a propane refrigerator

Posted on

switch to propane fridgeIs there a good time to switch to a propane refrigerator? Warehouse Appliance thinks so. If you’re an eager outdoor enthusiast, you probably already know how unimaginably liberating propane appliances are. Propane appliances afford their owners the freedom and pleasure to enjoy hot meals, hot water, cold food safely stored, lighting and more no matter where they are because propane appliances don’t suffer from the failures of appliances dependent on electricity.

There has been an increasing interest in switching out traditional electrical appliances for the incomparable dependability and security of propane appliances. With propane, the property owner stores propane in a tank, or tanks, which can vary in size and may require refilling every year or several times a year depending on the climate, where you live, the number of people occupying the house and how many appliances are using propane. And propane users can also shop for the best rates which traditional utility users usually cannot do.

Q: So when is the best time to switch out your old appliances for dependable, affordable propane appliances?

A: As soon as your situation allows you to swap them out because the price of freedom is more than worth it. When you consider the cost of dependence on undependable conventional sources of power and the cost to replace food after a power outage, or the inability to have hot water or lighting and the very limited availability of electricity in remote areas, you can easily see the benefits of switching.

Whenever you are ready to upgrade to a gas refrigerator, or any other propane appliance, Warehouse Appliance can answer your questions and help you select the right appliances for your needs. Call Warehouse Appliance today at 928-636-1955.
