Described is, among other things, a cooling system comprising a compressor, a condenser and an evaporator wherein a refrigerant is circulated is provided. The cooling system further comprises a valve interconnected in the flow of the refrigerant from the condenser to the evaporator. The valve is operatively controlled to a first, open, state when the compressor is in an on-phase and to a second, closed, state when the compressor is in an off state by a controller. The controller is adapted to control the valve to operate in accordance with at least one of: —opening (401) the valve a first variable time period before the compressor is switched to an on-phase; where the first variable time period is set in response to an external parameter obtained by the controller, and/or—closing (409) the valve a second variable time period before the compressor is switched to an off-phase, where the second variable time period is set in response to an external parameter obtained by the controller.

Abrégé

Refrigerator (10) comprising a cooled compartment (14) and a cooling arrangement (18) comprising a compressor (52) for cooling the cooled compartment. A controller (32) is configured for controlling the cooling arrangement. The controller is configured to control the temperature of the cooled compartment in two different modes of operation, depending on a temperature setpoint for the cooled compartment such that a first mode of operation is activated if the temperature setpoint of the compartment is below a predetermined temperature threshold value, and that a second mode of operation is activated if the temperature setpoint for the cooled compartment is above the predetermined temperature threshold value. Further, the controller is configured to execute a first defrost sequence (305) when the cooled compartment temperature is controlled in the first mode of operation; and the controller is configured to execute a second defrost sequence (307) when the cooled compartment temperature is controlled in the second mode of operation, where the second defrost sequence is different from said first defrost sequence.

Abrégé

A dishwasher having a chamber, and a door assembly having a chamber door movable between closed and open positions. The door has an access aperture to access an adjusting member for adjusting a position of a decorative front panel relative to the door, and a sliding member that slides along a sliding axis during door movement. The sliding member is configured to slide the decorative front panel relative to the door along the sliding axis during door movement. A cover is mounted on the door assembly and configured to take a first operative position in which it uncovers the access aperture and a second operative position in which it covers at least partially the access aperture. The cover mechanically cooperates with the sliding member to automatically move from the first operative position to the second operative position in response to the sliding of the sliding member.

Abrégé

Described is a refrigerator comprising a cooled compartment for storing goods to be cooled is provided. A door is provided for accessing the cooled compartment, and a cooling arrangement comprising a compressor for cooling the cooled compartment is also provided. The refrigerator further comprises a liner delimiting the cooled compartment from a space of the refrigerator outside of the cooled compartment, and a temperature sensor is provided in the space outside the cooled compartment and in direct contact with the liner. A controller is used for controlling the cooling arrangement based on an output from the temperature sensor. The cooled compartment is configured to store goods in direct contact with the liner at a location directly opposite to the location of the temperature sensor, and the controller is adapted to detect that goods are located in the cooled compartment at a location contacting the liner where the temperature sensor is located. The controller controls the cooling arrangement based on detection of such goods in contact with the liner.Hereby an efficient cooling of the cooled compartment can be achieved without reducing the space used for storing goods and with sensor arrangement that has low complexity.
