  • CYCLE-DEFROST REFRIGERATOR
    A style of refrigeration appliance where a portion of the evaporator, usually the chill-plate, defrosts whenever the thermostat switches off. In a refrigerator/freezer, the appliance usually has a separate outer door for each compartment.

  • DEFROST TERMINATION THERMOSTAT - A bimetal switch used to open the electric circuit to the defrost heater once a set temperature is reached. The defrost cycle will continue until the timer advances into the cooling cycle, however the heater will no longer be energized. This thermostat will reset to a closed position once a set colder temperature is again reached. May also be called a DEFROST LIMIT SWITCH.

  • DEHUMIDIFIER
    An appliance designed to extract moisture from the ambient air by means of a refrigeration system. Warm moist air is drawn by a fan across the cold evaporator which causes the water vapor to condense onto the coil and drop into a container. The cooled air is then passed over the condenser where it is warmed before being passed back into the surrounding area.

  • DOOR SEAL
    A resilient or flexible material used between mating surfaces to provide a leak-proof seal. May also be called a DOOR GASKET.

  • DRAIN PAN
    A pan-shaped panel used to collect condensate from the evaporator during a defrost cycle. It is usually located above a condenser coil or atop the compressor. May also be called CONDENSATE PAN.
