    If I have a refrigerator sitting out side does it keep running all the time and will it be the same temp if i was to bring it in side.what i am asking is does it take longer for the refrigerator to cool out side than inside.and if it keeps running all the time becouse it is outside.

    It depends on three factors, the outdoor temperature, the amount of bulk in the refrigeratro to keep cool and the direct sunlight. It takes forever to cool an unloaded refrigerator; it needs some mass in there to keep cool and let the thermostat kick off for a while.
