We plugged in a small (20x30?) deep freeze on … either saturday or sunday afternoon. on sunday my always on started creeping up - from 53 - and by tuesday seems to have topped out about 565.
the obvious culprit is the deep freeze, but when i unplugged it, the overall energy use didn’t drop. If it’s included in the always on average, wouldn’t it still show the actual total?
I had to plug it back in because there is food in it, we’re going to empty it and test over the next few days.
my questions: even if the freezer is bad that seems incredibly high energy use and would it stay on or only cycle more often? Wouldn’t it ID it as a freezer rather than dumping it in always on? My fridge that went bad used more energy, but more obviously cycled frequently.
We haven’t had an other new appliances, what else should I look at with such a sudden, consistent high signature?
