Not the best fridge

It runs hot regardless of what temperature you seem to have it on. If it's a hot day and the cabin is hot, the fridge can't handle the air ambience and seems to run all the time, which draws a lot of solar power. I have started losing food. I live 1hr away from shops, so losing food is not cool. I have now taken the cover off the back and put a fan at the back to blow cool air around the motor. I will see how this goes at the moment I'm not impressed.

Rubbish

This is my second 138L upright brass monkey fridge and still the same problem.
This fridge runs 24/7 and draws 4 - 5amps continuously and still unable to keep the fridge below 8 or 9 deg even if we never open the door. Show details

Terrible, waste of money

Terrible, dissapointed, waste if hard earned money Bought this fridge from jaycar in oct22 installed in caravan had to hardwire in as has useless 12v plug. Had to stick baby locks on fridge and freezer to keep doors shut removed vege crisper so we could put milk in bottom. TBH freezer has worked great from day dot however fridge has never seemed cold enough and now is not cooling at all. Haven't contacted jaycar yet but will on monday see if warranty. But i wouldnt recommend this fridge its less than 6 months old and stuffed. Show details

rubbish

this product is absolute rubbish. freezer can hardly freeze and the fridge running flat-out without opening the door for 3 days still is unable to lower temps under 8.3 deg.

any way you decide to go DO NOT purchase this fridge it is not what they say it is. Show details

If you're looking for a 138L fridge/freezer, this product is not for you

Purchased it and got home, thought it looked small inside. Measured it up three times to be sure, and it's only a maximum of 115L in total. Freezer: 33L & fridge 82L. I was expecting at least a few litres difference, but 23L is quite significant when it comes to a $900 caravan fridge.

Contacted the company who never returned my emails so I took it back into the store for a refund.
