Appliance module shows fridge using 17,219 W
« on: February 08, 2012, 08:05:25 am »
I'm really hoping this is a mis-read rather than actual usage - a garage fridge, albeit old, is using a huge amount of power according to MIOS' Energy Usage area - 17,219W??  Seriously not looking forward to the next energy bill.

Have been watching it over past couple of weeks it has been attached, and usually shows around 400W which is more like what I'd expect.

Anyone come across any bugs that are likely to trigger this?

PS have already submitted a ticket

What module is this plugged into?  Did you put the wattage consumption parameters in or is the one of the modules that reports actual energy?

It's an appliance module, one that auto-reports. It's showing 173w now, just out of interest

I think you are right and this is display bug..  FWIW 17,219 looks like it might have been 172.19 and rounding/display broke...

True, that makes sense
