Servel refrigerators run on propane, natural gas or kerosene, but can run on electricity if needed, though not efficiently. These types of refrigerators are used in situations where there is no power, such as an outage, a remote location or on a farm.
The cooling system has no moving parts and runs quietly. The price range runs between $1369 and $1950, as of 2015. Kerosene units require regular cleaning of the exhaust flue and weekly adjustments to the wick and mantle.
Servel refrigerators were first produced in 1926 by Servel Manufacturing. The refrigerator line was eventually bought by Dometic. The company can find the closest repair shop for customers who are having problems with their new or older model Servel refrigerator.
