Title: REFRIGERATOR AND MULTIPATH AIR SUPPLY APPARATUS FOR REFRIGERATOR
Abstract:
Provided are a refrigerator (1) and a multipath air supply apparatus (10) for the refrigerator (1). The multipath air supply apparatus (10) for the refrigerator (1) comprises: a housing (100) having an air inlet and a plurality of air outlets; an adjustment member (200) rotatably disposed in the housing (100) to completely or partially shield or completely expose each air outlet at different rotation positions, thereby adjusting respective air outlet areas of the plurality of air outlets; a baffle (300) rotatably mounted at the air inlet; and a linkage device (400) configured to transfer the rotational motion of the adjustment member (200) to the baffle (300), so that the baffle (300) moves to open or close the air inlet. In addition, also provided is a refrigerator (1) having the multipath air supply apparatus (10). When a storage compartment does not need cold air, the air inlet of the multipath air supply apparatus (10) can be completely closed to block an airflow passage for providing cold air for the storage compartment, thereby preventing the storage compartment from being overcooled and reducing energy consumption. Moreover, the use of the linkage device (400) implements easier and more accurate control of the multipath air supply apparatus (10).
