The fridge automatically switches to ECONAVI
(energy-saving) mode depending on the lifestyle of the user.
Ambient temperature: 32°C, when the temperature setting of the refrigerator is “MED “.
Door opening / closing frequency: refrigerator compartment 35 times, freezer 7 times.
Insert load: freezer compartment 750 g test package, refrigerator compartment 2.0 L water compared to non-econavi function models. Panasonic in-house data.
Efficient Cooling and
The ECONAVI refrigerator monitors the level of lighting and
temperature in the room, when and how often the fridge
doors are opened, and the fridge’ s internal temperature.
It analyzes and responds to this information to maintain
ideal cooling and avoid wasting energy.
Energy Saving and
With the non-inverter type, temperature is regulated by
switching on and off, but with a high-efficiency inverter,
temperature is automatically adjusted to the optimum level
in accordance with conditions. This eliminates waste, saves
energy, and enables both high-speed cooling and quiet
Fridge on Top
Looking at the average consumer's refrigerator use, we found
that 70 % of time is spent using the refrigerator
compartment and only 30 % using the freezer compartment.
We therefore placed the refrigerator compartment on top and
the freezer at the bottom. This new eye-level
accessibility is more convenient.
Each component of the system works to eliminate food odors
and suppress the growth of mold and other bacteria while
circulating cold air throughout the fridge.
The interior forms a total system to maintain cleanliness and
keep foods fresh and delicious.
Shelves are lit from the front which makes it easier to see what you have.
100 kg Tempered Glass Shelves
Strong and clean tempered glass shelves that can withstand loads as heavy as 100 kg.
Heavy loading of food can even be done at the top shelves.
60 years of Tradition
Panasonic refrigerators embody the essence of Japanese
Since 1953, eighty million Panasonic refrigerators have been
sold in Japan and around the world. To ensure the long and
loving support of our customers, we have carried on the
steadfast pursuit of easy use and high quality throughout
this long history.
Our mission is to furnish refrigerators that are easy to use,
tough to break, and which provide long and loyal use.
Toward that end, we are uncompromising in our quality
control testing of the technologies that we have cultivated
over more than six decades.
Operating Noise Test
Operating noise is tested in an anechoic chamber. Sensitive microphones measure sound
levels generated by components like the compressor and fan. Because refrigerators are on
day and night, quiet operation is important. Panasonic design helps minimize noise and
Door Open-Close Durability Test
Over a typical operating life of roughly 20 years, refrigerator doors are opened and closed
hundreds of thousands of times. Our Open-Close Durability Test is carried out at
temperatures that stress door seals and gaskets. Panasonic testing ensures that all door
components will work together flawlessly for many years.
Operating Test in Harsh Conditions
If any Panasonic compressor has a weak point, our high/low temperature testing chamber
will find it. High temperatures generate interior condensation to thoroughly verify electrical
system integrity. This and other rigorous testing ensures an exceptionally low risk of
malfunctioning throughout the product’ s useful life.
Refrigerators are tested for toppling resistance even in worst-case scenarios. Taking into
account poor placement locations such as inclined floors, refrigerators are tested to ensure
they are resistant to toppling.
