    Mode for the Invention



    [0010] Hereinafter, exemplary embodiments of the present invention will be described in detail with reference to the accompanying drawings.

    [0011] FIG. 1 is a perspective view of a refrigerator according to one embodiment of the present invention.

    [0012] Referring to FIG. 1, the refrigerator 1 according to one embodiment of the present invention may include a cabinet 10 having a refrigerator compartment 10a and a freezer compartment 10b formed therein, and a door assembly 20 which is coupled to a front surface of the cabinet 10 and selectively opens and closes the refrigerator compartment 10a and the freezer compartment 10b.

    [0013] The refrigerator compartment 10a and the freezer compartment 10b may be vertically or horizontally arranged. In the embodiment, a bottom freezer type refrigerator in which the refrigerator compartment 10a is located at an upper side and the freezer compartment 10b is located at a lower side is described as an example.

    [0014] The door assembly 20 may include a refrigerator door 21 which opens and closes the refrigerator compartment 10a, and a freezer door 22 which opens and closes the freezer compartment 10b.

    [0015] Also, the refrigerator door 21 may include a first door 211 which is rotatably coupled to the front surface of the cabinet 10, and a second door 212 which is rotatably coupled to a front surface of the first door 211. The first door 211 and the second door 212 may be connected to the cabinet 10 and the second door 211, respectively, by a hinge assembly 23. The first door 211 and the second door 212 may be defined as a rear door and a front door, or an internal door and an external door, respectively.

    [0016] Like the refrigerator door 21, the freezer door 22 may be rotatably coupled to the front surface of the cabinet 10. Alternatively, the freezer door 22 may be formed in a drawer type, and may be provided at the freezer compartment 10b to be able to be drawn out.

    [0017] FIG. 2 is a front perspective view of the door assembly illustrating an opened state of the first door.

    [0018] Referring to FIG. 2, the refrigerator door 21 according to the embodiment of the present invention may include the first door 211 and the second door 212, as described above. The first door 211 may open and close the refrigerator compartment 10a, and an accommodation module 40 may be installed at a rear surface thereof.

    [0019] A separate accommodation space 213 which is separated from the refrigerator compartment 10a may be formed at an inside of the accommodation module 40. The accommodation space 213 may be defined at an inside of a case 41 which protrudes from a rear surface of the first door 211. One or a plurality of baskets 42 in which a drink container or food is accommodated may be installed at the inside of the accommodation module 40.

    [0020] Also, an opening 212a which is in communication with the accommodation space 213 is formed in the first door 211. The opening 212a is selectively opened and closed by the second door 212. A horizontal width and a vertical width of the opening 212a may be formed corresponding to a horizontal width and a vertical width of a front surface of the case 41.

    [0021] The hinge assembly 23 includes a first hinge 231 which connects an upper surface of the first door 211 with an upper surface of the cabinet 10, and a second hinge 232 which connects an upper surface of the second door 212 with the upper surface of the first door 211.

    [0022] Also, a drawing out hole 41a may be formed at a rear surface of the case 41, specifically, a lower side of the rear surface of the case 41 so that at least one of the baskets 42 is drawn out toward a rear of the first door 211. By such a structure, at least one of the baskets 42 may be drawn out forward through the opening 212a, while the second door 212 is opened, and may also be drawn out toward the rear of the first door 211 through the drawing out hole 41a, while the first door 211 is opened.

    [0023] An edge of the rear surface of the first door 211 is in close contact with the front surface of the cabinet 10, and an edge of a rear surface of the second door 212 is in close contact with the front surface of the first door 211. The first door 211 and the second door 212 are rotated in the same direction, and thus open and close the refrigerator compartment 10a and the accommodation space 213, respectively.

    [0024] For example, when the second door 212 is opened in a state in which the first door 211 is closed, access to the accommodation space 213 through the opening 212a is allowed. That is, while only the second door 212 is opened, the food accommodated in the accommodation space 213 may be taken out, or the food may be accommodated in the accommodation space 213.

    [0025] Although not shown in the drawings, a first sealer may be installed at a periphery of the rear surface of the first door 211. Also, when the first door 211 is closed, the first sealer is in close contact with the front surface of the cabinet 10, and thus cool air is prevented from leaking. The first sealer is formed of a material which may be elastically deformed, and thus may be formed to be compressible.

    [0026] A second sealer 72 which is in contact with a periphery of the front surface of the first door 211 may be provided at a periphery of the rear surface of the second door 212. The second sealer 72 may be formed of the same material as that of the first sealer, such as rubber and silicon, which may be elastically deformed, and thus may be formed to be compressible. Therefore, while the second door 212 is closed, the second sealer 72 is in close contact with the front surface of the first door 211, and the cool air is prevented from leaking.

    [0027] A locking unit 65 may be provided between the second door 212 and the first door 211 to maintain a closed state between the second door 212 and the first door 211, i.e., a close contact state therebetween. The locking unit 65 may include a latch hook 66 which protrudes from the rear surface of the second door 212, and a latch holder 67 which is installed at the front surface of the first door to catch the latch hook 66. Alternatively, the latch hook 66 may be formed at the first door, and the latch holder 67 may be installed at the second door 212.

    [0028] FIG. 3 is an exploded perspective view of a basket assembly according to one embodiment of the present invention, when seen from a front side, and FIG. 4 is an exploded perspective view of the basket assembly, when seen from a rear side.

    [0029] Referring to FIGS. 3 and 4, the basket assembly according to the embodiment of the present invention may include the basket 42, a base assembly 100 which supports the basket 42, and a rail assembly which connects the base assembly 100 with the basket 42 and guides forward and backward drawing out of the basket 42.

    [0030] The base assembly 100 is installed at a bottom of the basket 42 to support the basket 42 when the basket 42 is drawn out toward the front and rear of the first door 211.

    [0031] The base assembly 100 may include a first base 110 on which the basket 42 is put, a second base 120 which is coupled to a lower portion of the first base 110, and a third base 130 which is coupled to a lower portion of the second base 120. The third base 130 is fixed to the rear surface of the first door 211, and, while the basket 42 is accommodated in the case 41, front surfaces of the first base 110 and the second base 120 may be designed to be on the same plane as the front surface of the first door 211, as illustrated in the drawings. A front surface of the basket 42 may also be designed to be on the same plane as the front surface of the first door 211. However, the present invention is not always limited thereto. It is sufficient that the front surfaces of the basket 42 and the first and second bases 110 and 120 are on the same plane as the front surface of the first door 211, or are located slightly to the rear of the front surface of the first door 211, and thus the second door 212 is completely in close contact with the front surface of the first door 211.

    [0032] The basket 42 is provided to be separable from the first base 110. For example, one or a plurality of protrusions and grooves corresponding to the protrusions may be formed at a lower surface of the basket 42 and an upper surface of the first base 110, respectively. Therefore, when the basket 42 is put on the first base 110, the basket 42 is not separated from the first base 110 due to inertia, when the first base 110 is horizontally moved. In addition, when the basket 42 is lifted up, the basket 42 may be easily separated from the first base 110.

    [0033] Specifically, the first base 110 is provided to be slidable on the second base 120 toward the front and rear of the first door 211. Also, the second base 120 is also provided to be slidable on the third base 130 toward the front and rear of the first door 211.

    [0034] To enable the first base 110 to be slidable on the second base 120, a first rail assembly is provided at a lower surface of the first base 110 and an upper surface of the second base 120. The first rail assembly may include a first rail part 112 which is installed at any one side of the lower surface of the first base 110 and the upper surface of the second base 120, and a first rail guide 122 which is installed at the other one side.

    [0035] Further, a second rail assembly may be provided at a lower surface of the second base 120 and an upper surface of the third base 130, and thus the second base 120 may be slidable forward and backward on the third base 130. Like the first rail assembly, the second rail assembly may include a second rail part 124 and a second rail guide 132. Specifically, the second rail part 124 may be installed at any one side of the lower surface of the second base 120 and the upper surface of the third base 130, and the second rail guide 132 may be installed at the other one side.

    [0036] Meanwhile, the basket assembly further includes a rear cover 140 which supports a rear surface of the basket 42, and the drawing out hole 41a is selectively opened and closed by the rear cover 140. The rear cover 140 is integrally coupled with the second base 120. Therefore, when the second base 120 is moved backward, the rear cover 140 is also moved together to open the drawing out hole 41a.

    [0037] FIG. 5 is a longitudinal cross-sectional view taken along V-V of FIG. 2.

    [0038] Referring to FIG. 5, when the second door 212 is opened, access to the basket 42 installed at the accommodation module 40 through the opening 212a is allowed.

    [0039] Specifically, the plurality of baskets 42 may be vertically arranged at regular intervals in the accommodation module 40. However, in two baskets which are vertically adjacent to each other, a space between a lower surface of an upper basket and an upper surface of a lower basket may be designed to be very narrow, as illustrated in the drawing. In this case, to take out the food accommodated in the lower basket 42, the lower basket 42 should be drawn out forward so that an opened upper surface of the lower basket 42 is exposed to an outside.

    [0040] Also, while the lower basket 42 is not moved, the drawing out hole 41a is maintained in a closed state by the rear cover 140. A rear surface of the accommodation module 40 is on the same plane as an outer surface of the rear cover 140.

    [0041] FIG. 6 is a perspective view of the door assembly illustrating a state in which the basket is drawn out forward, and FIG. 7 is a longitudinal cross-sectional view taken along VII-VII of FIG. 6.

    [0042] Referring to FIGS. 6 and 7, when a user opens the second door 212 and then pulls the basket 42 forward, the basket 42 is drawn out forward through the opening 212a. The opened upper surface of the basket 42 is exposed to the outside, and thus the user may check the accommodation space 213 of the basket 42. And the user may accommodate the food in the accommodation space 213 or may take out the food accommodated in the accommodation space 213.

    [0043] Specifically, when the basket 42 is drawn out forward, the first base 110 is fixed to the lower surface of the basket 42 and thus integrally moved with the basket 42. The first base 110 is slide forward along the upper surface of the second base 120 by an operation of the first rail assembly.

    [0044] Here, to prevent the basket 42 from being excessively drawn out forward, being separated and falling down, a stopper structure which restricts a drawing out distance of the basket 42 may be installed.

    [0045] For example, a stopping protrusion may protrude at a rear end of a side surface of the first base 110, and a protruding portion which interferes with the stopping protrusion or a stopping groove in which the stopping protrusion is caught may be formed at a side surface of the opening 212a. Then, the basket 42 is drawn out forward until the stopping protrusion is caught by the protruding portion or the stopping groove, and thus the drawing out distance of the basket 42 may be restricted. Alternatively, the stopping groove may extend to a predetermined length at both side surfaces or one side surface of the first base 110, and the stopping protrusion may protrude at both side surfaces or one surface of the opening 212a to be inserted into the stopping groove. Then, since the first base 110 is drawn out only when the stopping protrusion is caught by a rear end of the stopping groove, the drawing out distance of the basket 42 may be restricted.

    [0046] Alternatively, the stopper structure may be provided at the first rail assembly itself. For example, the stopping protrusion and the stopping groove which perform the stopping function may be provided at the first rail part 112 and the first rail guide 122, respectively, and a drawing out limit of the first rail part 112 may be established. The stopping protrusion may protrude at both the first rail part 112 and the first rail guide 122, and a front surface of the stopping protrusion of the first rail part 112 may be caught by a rear surface of the stopping protrusion of the first rail guide 122, and thus a drawing out distance of the first base 110 may be restricted.

    [0047] As another alternative, the stopping protrusion may be provided at one of the lower surface of the first base 110 and the upper surface of the second base 120, and the stopping groove which accommodates the stopping protrusion and restricts the movement of the stopping protrusion may be formed at the other one.

    [0048] As a part for restricting the drawing out distance of the basket 42, various types of stopper structures other than the above-described stopping protrusion may be proposed.

    [0049] FIG. 8 is a front perspective view of the door assembly illustrated a state in which the basket is drawn out backward, FIG. 9 is a rear perspective view of the door assembly illustrated the state in which the basket is drawn out backward, and FIG. 10 is a longitudinal cross-sectional view taken along X-X of FIG. 9.

    [0050] Referring to FIGS. 8 to 10, while the first door 211 is opened, the user may take out the food or the like accommodated in the accommodation module 40 from the rear of the first door 211.

    [0051] Specifically, when the first door 211 is rotated and separated from the front surface of the cabinet 10, the accommodation module 40 is separated from the refrigerator compartment 10a, and exposed to the outside. That is, the rear cover 140 which is disposed at a lower side of the accommodation module 40 is exposed to the outside, and is in a state which is operable by the user.

    [0052] In this state, when the user grips a handle 141 formed at the rear cover 140 and pulls the handle 141 toward the rear of the first door 211, the second base 120 which is integrally coupled with the rear cover 140 is slid on the upper surface of the third base 130.

    [0053] Specifically, the second base 120 is gently moved backward along the upper surface of the third base 130 by an operation of the second rail assembly. Here, the first base 110 is in a coupled state with the second base 120, and thus, when the second base 120 is moved backward, the first base 110 and the basket 42 situated on the upper surface of the second base 120 are also moved backward.

    [0054] Also, the rear cover 140 is horizontally moved from a rear surface of the accommodation module 40, and the opened upper surface of the basket 42 is exposed to the outside. In this state, the user may take out the food accommodated in the basket 42, or may accommodate the food in the basket 42.

    [0055] Meanwhile, a stopper structure for establishing a backward drawing out distance of the basket 42 may be provided. The stopper structure may be formed to be the same as the stopper structure for establishing the drawing out limit of the first base 110, and thus may be provided at the second rail assembly in the stopping protrusion and stopping groove type or the stopping protrusion and protruding portion type. Alternatively, as described above, the stopping protrusion and the stopping groove may be formed at the lower surface of the second base 120 and the upper surface of the third base 130, respectively.

    [0056] Although a few embodiments of the present invention have been shown and described, it would be appreciated by those skilled in the art that changes may be made in these embodiments without departing from the principles of the invention, the scope of which is defined in the claims and their equivalents.
