I doubt they are energy star qualified!
It sure is purty though.
I have a 1947 Philco in the patio from my grand parents house, it sits in the morning sun 3 hours a day. It operates for 95 to 108 seconds every 2 1/2 to 3 hours. The new Maytag frig runs 70% of the time and told it was normal.
Wattage meter used on the Philco beats the larger new Maytag by 11 times. Non energy star my ass that Maytag will be in the dumps first. I bet you would turn in a clean 56 Ford Pick UP for a brand new Toyota with that clunker law.
Not to offend or attack you just how wrong people are without using a watt meter on old equipment with facts. Done ranting. Oh no taps will be drilled into the Philco.
