    LG has had a 22 cuft at the Sears store up here in the mountains. They still do and that is my replacement when the Maytag man wants to come visit me.

    Ok thanks. Pretty sure the little inverter won't handle that.

    The one I linked above, I can get a scratch'n'dent version for about $850. It's annual KW is listed as 464.

    If I divide it out correctly, that's an average continuous consumption of about 50w.  I can handle a load like that.  I need an excuse to increase the battery bank size anyway.

    I'm looking on a phone and I can't find it. Is that an inverter fridge?
    Yes. It's very hard to find the confirmation, but it is an inverter.

    Update on LG refrig running on 600 watt Samlex inverter.  Running fine, but this inverter needs a note.  As has been noted elsewhere the outlet on it is a GFI type.  It will trip on occasion, especially if a power strip is attached.  If your running a refrig off it and are away it could ruin a whole lot of food.  Replacing the outlet with a DECOR type standard outlet solves this problem.  You have to internally bond the outlet just as the installed GFI is.  If your Samlex seems to crap out on you it could be a defective GFI, or one that's been reset too many times.  Replace it, see if that solves the problem before going for service.

    I have a Samsung inverter fridge and the draw is never over 15O watts, There is NO startup surge, If the GE is similar to other inverter fridges 3OO watt inverter should be no problem.
