Motor or Compressor Runs too Much

New Refrigerator, more Efficient 

Remember that your new refrigerator will run longer than your old one due to its high-efficiency motor. Your new French door bottom mount refrigerator has been designed with a Linear Compressor to optimize energy efficiency and better regulate temperatures to match cooling demand. You may notice that it operates differently than your previously owned refrigerator. It is normal for the high-efficiency compressor to run for extended periods of time at varying speeds in order to consume only the energy necessary for optimum efficiency.
