Description

  The present invention relates to a refrigerator provided with a door opening device and a control device for controlling the operation of the door opening device.

  Conventionally, as a door opening device of a refrigerator, there is one using an actuator such as an electromagnetic solenoid (see, for example, Patent Document 1).

  FIG. 8 is a main enlarged cross-sectional view of a conventional refrigerator door opening device described in Patent Document 1, and FIG. 9 is a flowchart for explaining the control operation.

  In FIG. 8, a door opening device 110 that opens the door 100 of the refrigerator 1 is mounted on the upper part of the main body of the refrigerator 1, and a door opening switch 101 for operating the door opening device 110 is provided on the front surface of the door 100. On the upper part of the door 100, there is provided a projecting pressed part 102 for transmitting the power of the door opening device 110 to the door. Inside the door opening device 110, an electromagnetic solenoid 111a, a plunger 111b that operates by the magnetic field thereof, and a push rod 111c that transmits the power to the pressed portion 102 of the door 100 are disposed.

  The operation of the conventional refrigerator door opening device will be described below.

  8 and 9, it is first determined whether or not the door opening switch 101 is turned on by operating (turning on) the door opening switch 101 provided on the door 100 of the refrigerator 1 (step S10). When the door opening switch 101 is turned on, the process proceeds to “YES” in step S10, and the electromagnetic solenoid 111a inside the door opening device 110 is energized (step S20). The plunger 111b is operated by this magnetic field, and the operation is transmitted to the push rod 111c for opening the door 100, and the pressed portion 102 of the door 100 is pushed to open the door 100. In step S30, it is determined whether a door switch (not shown) is turned on. When the door switch is turned on, that is, when the door 100 is opened, the process proceeds to “YES” in step S30, and the electromagnetic solenoid 111a is disconnected (step S40).

  On the other hand, in step S30, when the door switch is OFF, that is, when the door 100 is closed, the process proceeds to “NO”, and it is determined whether or not a set time has elapsed since the energization of the electromagnetic solenoid 111a is started. (Step S50). In this case, the set time is a predetermined time, and is usually 1 second, for example. In step S50, when the set time has not elapsed, the process proceeds to “NO”, and the process returns to step S30 to determine whether or not the door switch is turned on. On the other hand, in step S50, when the set time has elapsed, the process proceeds to “YES” and proceeds to step S40 to disconnect the electromagnetic solenoid 111a.

Therefore, the opening / closing frequency of the refrigerator door is usually about 40 to 50 times / day, and the temperature rise accompanying a single energization of the electromagnetic solenoid 111a is slight. Moreover, since the opening / closing interval is relatively long, the temperature rise of the electromagnetic solenoid 111a is not a problem during a certain heat dissipation period.
JP 2001-263923 A

  However, in the conventional refrigerator described above, when the door opening / closing operation is continuously performed in children's mischief or store display, etc., the temperature of the electromagnetic solenoid rises sharply, deformation of the outer resin part of the door opening device, electromagnetic solenoid The problem was that the operating force was reduced due to an increase in winding resistance.

  The present invention solves the above-described conventional problems, and an object thereof is to provide a refrigerator equipped with a door opening device that can ensure a safe and stable operation even when the door is continuously opened and closed. To do.

When the refrigerator door is continuously opened and closed, the motor temperature of the door opening device increases sharply. The temperature rise can be grasped in a correlative manner, and the operation of the door opening device can be restricted at a preset door opening speed (motor temperature) without using a temperature control device such as a thermistor. As a result, the door opening device can be prevented from rising to an abnormal temperature due to continuous operation or the like, and stable operating characteristics can be secured. Further, the driving force for opening the door is not an electromagnetic solenoid but a DC motor, so that the temperature rise during energization operation can be reduced.
