Wire size really does matter

What a difference going from #10 to #8 wire made for the fridge.
The fan runs considerably faster, and the power draw is lower
the Adler Barbour wire size chart is actually right about size and length of run.
who ever ran the wires the last time used #10 duplex right at the edge of recommend run.
Got fridge problems check the wire size and condition

This wire size calculator from Nigel Calder has been really handy for many of my projects:  https://boathowto.com/electrics/wire-size-calculators/
