I know there are some refrigeration folks out there who can hopefully answer my question. I have heard that keeping bags of ice stored in the freezer will improve the efficiency of the unit because the cold air from the freezer is blown into the fridge to cool it. If this is true for a modern fridge does the same theory hold true for our IH fridges that have the dorm-room-style freezer (the cold plate that periodically needs manual defrosting)? The reason I ask is I use my fridge (pic in sig) to store cold drinks in the garage. I don't use the freezer so if placing some extra ice in it would save me a little on the electric bill I'll do it.
