Time to consider another brand

published

Went on first short break in December, constantly had issues with power although advised 50 litre perfect on a 200 solar panel with 140 amp hour battery. Had solar system looked at although brand new. Second trip went up north for a month. First issue was had to turn off freezer as drawing to much power and only use as fridge.
Rest of holiday stilled plagued with F4 errors, compressor working to hard, although power okay. Should be able to restart in 30 minutes but usually required shutting down overnight. Shop replaced, however new one is so noisy...compressor again, that easier to sell and pay more for a better product, rather than spoil holiday dealing with fridge crap.

Good value

published

Two weeks in 40+ degree outside temperatures locked in car it maintained -10 freezer 3 degree fridge temp! I have optional insulation bag. Perfect fridge for emergencies, camping not heavy 4x4 due to not water proof and build.
The touchscreen was a bit annoying as it’s easily touched when accessing the unit but works well.
For the price it’s extremely good value especially for a duel zone and has a 3 year REPLACEMENT warranty which is equivalent to or better than others out there!
Time will only tell how this fridge holds up but so far exceeds expectations!

HELP! Moving house in a couple of days. Put food into the 60L Brass Monkey fridge Freezer then gave the home fridge away. The BM seemed to be working OK but wouldn’t let me reduce the temperature for the freezer below -8 degrees. I tried removing the centre piece and using it solely as a freezer. Still wouldn’t register lower than -8degrees. Now the compressor is obviously not working, the temp reading is 4 degrees. I’ve put ice in it and turned it off. Will turning it off for a while help the compressor reboot? If so how long would you recommend leaving it off?

Hi, I would suggest that if turning it off was going to help the fridge recover/reset it should only need to cool down fully. An hour or two should do it. To do so I would unplug it completely, not just hit the power button. Make sure it has no supply at all and then see if it will fire up again. Good luck.

Hi, I have the 50L Fridge Freezer which runs perfectly on 240v but when i put it into my offroad camper (100a/h agm battery) the freezer compartment doesnt stay at its pre programmed temp of -15 degrees.
Is it because i have other devices (two water pumps and LED lights) connected to the same battery?
I'm thinking of getting another battery soley to power the fridge rather than the fridge sharing the battery.
What are your thoughts?

I have a 200 solar panel, and a 140amp/hr battery. It kept turning my system off, and solar guy said my battery will never support the 50l, as battery always just covering freezer. Had to turn off, even though car battery is designed to top up 140amp/hr.
