My Mom bought a home with a Traulsen URS 36 DT. Recently the Tecumseh AEA2410AXA 1/4 Hp R12 Compressor died. As her "property manager" it is up to me to decide whether to repair this unit or replace it. She is not particularly attached to this high end unit--but I can get a new compressor installed for less than a new "home depot" refrigerator would cost.
The decision basically comes down to energy consumption. Can anyone tell me where I can find some data on energy consumption for Traulsen home refrigerators?
