Is there currently a Stack Exchange site where I can ask about household appliances?

In the current case, my question is whether it's good practice to turn off a fridge when you don't need it, and if yes, in what intervals.

Is there a site (or proposal) where this question would fit in? It's not Food and Cooking, and it's probably not Home Improvement, either...

There is not currently a household appliance Stack Exchange site.

The latest list of sites can be found here: Area 51

If you want an appliance site, support it here: Area 51: Home Appliances

  • Cheers Robert, I didn't find that one.

    The proposal for Home Appliances has since been removed.

Home Improvement or DIY has many appliance questions. Of the 12 most popular, fewer than half are about operating:

  • 5 operating questions
  • 5 installing questions
  • 2 repairing questions

That's plenty. So go ahead and post an appliance question there. In 2019 there are 368 questions about refrigerators.
