I understand your concern. Unfortunately, without model number, I will not be able to provide specific information. You have received some good information that may help you. It is normal for refrigerators to run a lot. The location of the refrigerator may also contribute to how long it runs. I know it's normal, to think, it's taking a lot of electricity but most refrigerators are very economical and use very little current. For more specific information, a complete model and serial number will be needed. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
