Title (EN) REFRIGERATOR WITH AUTOMATIC LIQUID DISPENSER
(FR) RÉFRIGÉRATEUR AVEC DISTRIBUTEUR AUTOMATIQUE DE LIQUIDE
Abstract:
(EN) A refrigerator includes a cabinet defining a fresh food compartment and a door pivotally mounted to the cabinet and including an interior surface in communication with the fresh food compartment when the door is closed. A liquid dispenser is arranged on the interior surface of the door, and a container (20) is supported on the door and configured to receive liquid from the liquid dispenser. A sensor (40) is configured to sense a property of the container, and a control is in communication with the sensor. The control (50) is configured to regulate dispensing of liquid into the container based upon the sensed property of the container. The sensor (40) utilizes a magnetic sensing element (60A) located adjacent to the container (20).
(FR) L'invention concerne un réfrigérateur comprenant une armoire définissant un compartiment d'aliment frais et une porte montée de manière pivotante sur l'armoire et comprenant une surface intérieure en communication avec le compartiment d'aliment frais lorsque la porte est fermée. Un distributeur de liquide est disposé sur la surface intérieure de la porte, et un récipient (20) est supporté sur la porte et configuré pour recevoir du liquide provenant du distributeur de liquide. Un capteur (40) est configuré pour détecter une caractéristique du récipient, et une commande est en communication avec le capteur. La commande (50) est configurée pour réguler la distribution de liquide dans le récipient sur la base de la caractéristique détectée du récipient. Le capteur (40) utilise un élément de détection magnétique (60A) adjacent au récipient (20).
