In the present time, Refrigeration cycles are very essential in daily life, especially in use for storing food, fitness, and luxury lifestyle. This study's aim is to form some effective changes within the design of a conventional refrigerant system in order so that the performance of the evaporator inside the compartment may be optimized. The freezer and refrigerant compartments are studied for 3 configurations to check the consequences of the traditional and perforated fin on the rate and temperature distribution at different levels and the Comparison of temperature profiles for various configurations of the refrigerating compartment. This result is the average temperature maintained in the freezer and refrigerating compartment is about 273K and 286K respectively. Inside Compartment 1) the temperature in without finned system – 279.972K to 283.755K. 2) The temperature in with rectangular finned system – 277.563K to 283.1667K. 3) The temperature in with perforated finned system – 277.362K to 282.335K. The configuration studied for this type of refrigerator, the air temperature at the top of the refrigerator is about 5℃ higher than the average air temperature, and therefore it is important to avoid placing sensitive products in this position. While perforated finned demonstrated maximum Temperature distributions and providing a higher cooling effect.
