  • Publication number: 20140190193
    Abstract: A refrigeration device, in particular a domestic refrigeration device, has at least one storage chamber, a cold generator which refrigerates the storage chamber, and a regulating unit which regulates the performance of the cold generator and can be switched between an operating state of low average performance in which the performance of the cold generator is regulated in order to maintain the temperature of the storage chamber within a desired range, and an operating state of high average performance of the cold generator in which the temperature of the storage chamber falls below the desired range. A timer is designed to switch the refrigeration device periodically into the operating state of high average performance at times that can be set by the user.
