I was looking at the efficiency between these two models of refrigerator and I'm still scratching my head as WHY is the LSC27910 is rated at 732KWH (not energy star) while the LSC27911 is rated at 590KWH (energy star).

They're basically identical with the 27911 model coming out a few months later. Their features are exactly the same, the weight is exactly the same, dimensions, decoration, etc. with a slight height difference that may or may not be relevant. Weight is reportedly the same.


I can't figure it out. Is it possible that some future motherboard revisions are the cause of one unit being energy star rated and the original version was not? It appears both units use the exact same parts but that there may be older parts being used on these units.




Would anybody happen to know if there was a significant revision in parts for these two units and if so, what is it?

LSC27914_ss seems to be a visually updated version of the exact same refrigerators and came out about 2 years later...

The basic components like the main controller board, compresssor, evap, motors, etc. are all the same. Only difference is a visual difference with the through the door service but otherwise they seem to use the same ice makers, etc.

It probably is the efficiency of the compressors. If either of them have a linear compressor, don't buy it. If the less efficient one has a regular reciprocating compressor, it's worth a few extra bucks a year to buy that one.
