Refrigerators on shabbos

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


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.
