IEC 60335-2-34:2021 is available as IEC 60335-2-34:2021 RLV which contains the International Standard and its Redline version, showing all changes of the technical content compared to the previous edition.IEC 60335-2-34:2021 deals with the safety of sealed (hermetic and semi-hermetic type) motor-compressors, their protection and control systems, if any, which are intended for use in equipment for household and similar purposes and which conform with the standards applicable to such equipment. It applies to motor-compressors tested separately, under the most severe conditions that may be expected to occur in normal use, their rated voltage being not more than 250 V for single-phase motor-compressors and 600 V for other motor-compressors.
This standard also covers:
- multi-speed motor-compressors, that are motor-compressors, the speed of which can be set to different values;
- variable capacity motor-compressors that are motor-compressors where the capacity of the compressor is controlled at fixed speeds.
Examples of equipment which contain motor-compressors are:
- tumble dryers (IEC 60335-2-11);
- refrigerating appliances, ice-cream appliances and ice-makers (IEC 60335-2-24);
- electrical heat pumps, air-conditioners and dehumidifiers (IEC 60335-2-40);
- commercial dispensing appliances and vending machines (IEC 60335-2-75);
- commercial refrigerating appliances and ice-makers with an incorporated or remote refrigerant unit or compressor (IEC 60335-2-89);
- electrical equipment for measurement, control, and laboratory use (IEC 61010-2-011);
- professional ice-cream makers (IEC 60335-2-118);
- refrigerating systems and heat pumps – Design, construction, testing, marking and documentation (ISO 5149-2).
This standard does not supersede the requirements of standards relevant to the particular appliance in which the motor-compressor is used. However, if the motor-compressor type used complies with this standard, the tests for the motor-compressor specified in the particular appliance standard may not need to be made in the particular appliance or assembly. If the motor-compressor control system is associated with the particular appliance control system, additional tests could be necessary on the final appliance.
So far as is practical, this standard deals with the common hazards presented by motor-compressors used in appliances which are encountered by all persons in and around the home. However, it does not in general take into account:
- the use of appliances by young children or infirm persons without supervision;
- playing with the appliances by young children.
Attention is drawn to the fact that:
- for motor-compressors intended to be used in appliances in vehicles or on board ships, additional require¬ments could be necessary;
- in many countries, additional requirements are specified by the national health authorities, the national authorities responsible for the protection of labour and similar authorities.
This standard does not apply to:
- motor-compressors designed exclusively for industrial purposes;
- motor-compressors used in appliances intended to be used in locations where special conditions prevail, such as the presence of a corrosive or explosive atmosphere (dust, vapour or gas).
If motor-compressors for refrigerant R-744 used in appliances with a transcritical refrigeration system are equipped with pressure relief devices, compliance with the requirements for these devices is checked during the tests on the final appliance.
This sixth edition cancels and replaces the fifth edition published in 2012, Amendment 1:2015 and Amendment 2:2016. This edition constitutes a technical revision.
This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
- it aligns the text with IEC 60335-1, Ed 5.2;
- application categories and tests have been extended (3.1.102, Annex AA);
- use of a motorette for winding wire compatibility tests introduced (3.8.102, Ann

IEC 60335-2-24:2010 deals with the safety of the following appliances, refrigerating appliances for household and similar use; ice-makers incorporating a motor-compressor and ice-makers intended to be used in frozen food storage compartments; refrigerating appliances and ice-makers for use in camping, touring caravans and boats for leisure purposes, their rated voltage being not more than 250 V for single-phase appliances and 480 V for other appliances and 24 V d.c for appliances when battery operated. 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 with compression-type appliances for household and similar use, which use flammable refrigerants. The principal changes in this edition as compared with the previous edition are as follows:
- Aligns the text with IEC 60335-1, and its amendments;
- clarifies the term "household and similar use";
- updates marking requirements for supply terminals of battery operated appliances;
- introduces requirements for appliances using transcritical refrigerant systems;
- introduces an enhanced flexing test;
- introduces requirements for accessible glass panels;
- clarifies tests for appliances using flammable refrigerants. The attention of national Committees is drawn to the fact that equipment manufacturers and testing organizations may need a transitional period following publication of a new, amended or revised IEC publication in which to make products in accordance with the new requirements and to equip themselfs for conducting new or revised tests. It is the recommendation of the committee that the content of this publication be adopted for implementation nationally not earlier than 12 months or later than 36 months from the date of publication.
