– appareils de réfrigération et fabriques de glace à usage de loisir pour le camping, le caravaning ou le bateau.
Ces appareils peuvent être alimentés par le secteur, par une batterie séparée, ou être alimentés à la fois par secteur ou batterie.
La présente norme traite également de la sécurité des sorbetières à usage domestique, leur tension assignée n'étant pas supérieure à 250 V pour les appareils monophasés et à 480 V pour les autres appareils.
Elle traite également des appareils à compression pour usage domestique et analogue, qui utilisent des fluides frigorigènes inflammables.
La présente norme ne traite pas des caractéristiques de construction et de fonctionnement d'appareils de réfrigération qui font l'objet d'autres normes IEC.
Les appareils de réfrigération qui ne sont pas destinés à des usages domestiques normaux, mais qui peuvent néanmoins constituer une source de danger pour le public, tels que:
- les appareils de réfrigération utilisés dans les coins cuisines réservés au personnel des magasins, bureaux et autres environnements professionnels;
- les appareils de réfrigération utilisés dans les fermes et par les clients des hôtels, motels et autres environnements à caractère résidentiel;
- les appareils de réfrigération utilisés dans les environnements de type chambres d'hôtes; et
- les appareils de réfrigération utilisés en restauration et autres applications similaires hormis la vente au détail
sont compris dans le domaine d'application de la présente norme.
Dans la mesure du possible, la présente norme traite des dangers ordinaires présentés par les appareils, encourus par tous les individus à l'intérieur et autour de l'habitation. Cependant, elle ne tient en général pas compte:
– des personnes (y compris des enfants) dont les capacités physiques, sensorielles ou mentales; ou le manque d'expérience et de connaissance les empêchent d'utiliser l'appareil en toute sécurité sans surveillance ou instruction;
– de l'utilisation de l'appareil comme jouet par des enfants.
L'attention est attirée sur le fait que:
– pour les appareils destinés à être utilisés dans des véhicules ou à bord de navires ou d'avions, des exigences supplémentaires peuvent être nécessaires;
– dans de nombreux pays, des exigences supplémentaires sont spécifiées par les organismes nationaux de la santé, par les organismes nationaux responsables de la protection des travailleurs, par les organismes nationaux responsables de l'alimentation en eau et par des organismes similaires.
La présente norme ne s'applique pas:
– aux appareils destinés à être utilisés en plein air;
– aux appareils conçus exclusivement pour des usages industriels;
– aux appareils destinés à être utilisés dans des locaux présentant des conditions particulières, telles que la présence d'une atmosphère corrosive ou explosive (poussière, vapeur ou gaz);
– aux appareils équipés d'une batter

FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote

international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To

this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications,

Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC

Publication(s)”). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested

in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-

governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely

with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by

agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence

between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in

the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of

patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

This part of IEC 60335 has been prepared by subcommittee 61C: Safety of refrigeration

appliances for household and commercial use, of IEC Technical Committee 61: Safety of

household and similar electrical appliances.
This eighth edition cancels and replaces the seventh edition published in 2010,

Amendment 1:2012 and Amendment 2:2017. This edition constitutes a technical revision.

as far as is reasonable. When this standard states “addition”, “modification” or “replacement”,

the relevant text in Part 1 is to be adapted accordingly.
NOTE 2 The following numbering system is used:

– subclauses, tables and figures that are numbered starting from 101 are additional to those in Part 1;

– unless notes are in a new subclause or involve notes in Part 1, they are numbered starting from 101, including

those in a replaced clause or subclause;
– additional annexes are lettered AA, BB, etc.
NOTE 3 The following print types are used:
– requirements: in roman type;
– test specifications: in italic type;
– notes: in small roman type.

Words in bold in the text are defined in Clause 3. When a definition concerns an adjective, the adjective and the

associated noun are also in bold.

INTRODUCTION

It has been assumed in the drafting of this International Standard that the execution of its

provisions is entrusted to appropriately qualified and experienced persons.

This standard recognizes the internationally accepted level of protection against hazards such

as electrical, mechanical, thermal, fire and radiation of appliances when operated as in

normal use taking into account the manufacturer's instructions. It also covers abnormal

situations that can be expected in practice and takes into account the way in which

electromagnetic phenomena can affect the safe operation of appliances.

This standard takes into account the requirements of IEC 60364 as far as possible so that

there is compatibility with the wiring rules when the appliance is connected to the supply

mains. However, national wiring rules may differ.

If an appliance within the scope of this standard also incorporates functions that are covered

by another part 2 of IEC 60335, the relevant part 2 is applied to each function separately, as

far as is reasonable. If applicable, the influence of one function on the other is taken into

account.

When a part 2 standard does not include additional requirements to cover hazards dealt with

in Part 1, Part 1 applies.

NOTE 1 This means that the technical committees responsible for the part 2 standards have determined that it is

not necessary to specify particular requirements for the appliance in question over and above the general

requirements.

This standard is a product family standard dealing with the safety of appliances and takes

precedence over horizontal and generic standards covering the same subject.

NOTE 2 Horizontal and generic standards covering a hazard are not applicable since they have been taken into

consideration when developing the general and particular requirements for the IEC 60335 series of standards. For

example, in the case of temperature requirements for surfaces on many appliances, generic standards, such as

ISO 13732-1 for hot surfaces, are not applicable in addition to Part 1 or part 2 standards.

An appliance that complies with the text of this standard will not necessarily be considered to

comply with the safety principles of the standard if, when examined and tested, it is found to

have other features that impair the level of safety covered by these requirements.

An appliance employing materials or having forms of construction differing from those detailed

in the requirements of this standard may be examined and tested according to the intent of

the requirements and, if found to be substantially equivalent, may be considered to comply

with the standard.

HOUSEHOLD AND SIMILAR ELECTRICAL APPLIANCES –
SAFETY –
Part 2-24: Particular requirements for refrigerating appliances,
ice-cream appliances and ice-makers
1 Scope
This clause of Part 1 is replaced by the following.

This part of IEC 60335 deals with the safety of the following appliances, their rated voltage

being not more than 250 V for single-phase appliances, 480 V for other appliances and 24 V

DC for appliances when battery operated:
– refrigerating appliances for household and similar use;
– ice-makers incorporating a motor-compressor and ice-makers intended to be
incorporated in frozen food storage compartments;

– refrigerating appliances and ice-makers for use in camping, touring caravans and boats

for leisure purposes.

These appliances may be operated from the mains, from a separate battery or operated either

from the mains or from a separate battery.

This standard also deals with the safety of ice-cream appliances intended for household use,

their rated voltage being not more than 250 V for single-phase appliances and 480 V for

other appliances.

It also deals with compression-type appliances for household and similar use, which use

flammable refrigerants.
This standard does not cover features of the construction and operation of those
refrigerating appliances which are dealt with in other IEC standards.

Refrigerating appliances not intended for normal household use but which nevertheless may

be a source of danger to the public, such as

• refrigerating appliances used in staff kitchen areas in shops, offices and other working

environments,

• refrigerating appliances used in farm houses and by clients in hotels, motels and other

residential type environments,
• refrigerating appliances used in bed and breakfast type environments, and
• refrigerating appliances used in catering and similar non-retail applications
are within the scope of this standard.
