Refrigerators on shabbos

Question:
Shalom u’vrachah. What is the rav’s opinion regarding using digital refrigerators on shabbos?

Answer:

Any digital display that is activated by opening the door, keeping it open or closing it should be deactivated for Shabbos. This is similar to a light which goes on when opening the door, which must be deactivated for Shabbos.  Most of these fridges have a bypass option to deactivate the screen or something similar.
