recipe for seasoning power cords

A recent addition to my mix is a pair of PS Audio Plus p/cs.I have a pair of adaptors too so that I can hook the cords up daisy chained to my refrigerator outlet. What do you feel is the optimum time to break in the cords using this method? Thanks for reading!
24 hours with the door open.

It's a side by side refrigerator / freezer. Is that one door open, both doors open, or if one door,
does it make a difference whether it's the freezer or fridge door?

You're a funny guy......
Re: leaving the door open....

I think there is something in this idea. The in-rush of current as the compressor/pump starts is what's going to help break in the cord the fastest. So if you wait for the middle of summer and leave the door open, then turn the thermostat to the coldest position, the 'fridge is going to have to work hard to keep the temperature down. ;-)

So the system should be under a lot of load, cycling hard. That would hammer the power cord. Big motors that turn off and on a lot, like in washing machines, would be beneficial. I don't think you are interested in a steady state heavy draw of current (though that's helpful) - you want a lot of change over the break in time.

Sound more like a recipe for ruining the refrigerator. But some of the power cords people buy seem to cost more than the average refrigerator. I guess a refrigerator is a small price to pay for a nice well conditioned expensive power cord.
I agree with what everyone has said. It's the ebb and flow of current that seasons a powercord. If you don't want to leave your refrigerator or freezer doors open, leave the power cord in-line for 3-4 weeks. The owner of Elrod power cords told me this when I was breaking in one of his power cords. He reccomended a freezer, but a frige probably works just as well. Hope this helps. Stan
get a adapter for a 220 outlet, and connect it to your clothes dryer, 220 volts pumping thru that baby !!!! get er done !!
Readster belongs to the Butch Cassidy school of thought. (From the movie- Butch Cassdy and the Sundance Kid. Sundance-"Well Butch, Ya think ya used enough dynamite?" This is after they both watch half a train mail car disintegrate into small pieces.) Great Movie!
i'm just being silly, i don't know if i really buy the burning in of the power cord, or maybe my ears aren't good enough to hear the difference, but if you all can, then i can't argue with that.
Addendum to my first post: The owner of Elrod Power cords said nothing about an open frige door. He said leave the power cord in-line for 3-4 weeks on a freezer, but he said, a refrigerator would probably work well too. This is the first I've heard about leaving the door open. I guess it won't hurt the cord, I don't know about the frige.
Good one Abrahavt!On a serious note,I find this interesting and beneficial,thanks,Bob
