My waeco fridge has suddenly stopped cooling , runs constantly without cooling. Has performed flawlessly for over 2 months on the road but suddenly stopped cooling. Is it a simple fix or terminal
My cooler box runs perfect it just doesn’t get any cooler than 15 degrees. I have tried it with ac and dc still does not get cold. I ran it all day and night and the next morning still only cooled down to 15 degrees. Any suggestions would be nice
Maby try putting some ice in it for about 12 hours before you use it to cool it down, then once you put your things in it should be ok to use, you could also replace the Ice to keep it cold, don't lave running in your car without the car running it will flattern the battery quickly.
It work with suround temperatur
It using tec (cold and hot side)
If the suround temperatur below 30c you will get less then 10c inside
hello i have dometic 21 plug in fan runs all night plate giving off heat not cooling inside anyone help? i rang up a company they said 160 for parts if the board gone not worth it can buy new for that price , some one mentioned an inner fan fan if its not drawing will the box not cool thanks in advance Dave
Hi, I have a waeco coolpro 21FL that I was running o 240v ahead of camping trip. It has completly stopped overnight, no fan no cooking nothing. 12v no longer working either. Is there a reset etc or can I assume the unit it dead? Cheers
I have a 12v Waeco car fridge Model number TC 18UG-12. External fan runs, internal fan does not. Is it supposed to run on heating or cooling?
Can you please tell me if the internal fan runs constantly with the external fan.
Ive got my cooler hooked up to 240volt and the external fan is going but getting nothing from the internal one.
It's supposed to.
Internal power supply has two low voltage components I believe. 1 x 5v & 1 x 10. Or something in that range. How those fans are connected up to those power supplies I do not know. Maybe a case of no power to one of the fans or a seized fan. If it's just a fan I used to salvage one of similar voltage from an old computer and screw them into place. These days it's even easier. You just look up the dimensions of the fan on mebay or amazon and source one with the appropriate voltage. All this is presuming you're Peltier unit is still operational....
Thanks mate. I have been down and purchased a new internal fan and hooked it up with no joy.
Will keep looking.
Can I use my thermoelectric cooler lying on its side?
As the cooling system is mainly solid state electronics with a cooling fan on a heat sink I imagine that it should be ok. It should be like operating a notebook pc on its side.
Shouldn't make a scrap of difference, other than thermal leakage as cold air which will flow downhill, leaks out the lid seals.
Unlike conventional fridges, there are no moving parts other than fans so issues such as hydraulic lock, caused by lubrication oil getting past compressors when you tip fridges on their side, is not a problem.
The fan runs on my unit and its been plugged in for hours but not cooling down at all.
Put an ammeter on it and measure the current in the 10 amp range. Might have to go to an auto electrician to do this as a hobby type ammeter will probably deliver an 'out of range error' if it's working properly.
If, however, your $10 multimeter indicates a current draw is minimal, like 600ma or something in the range of what a larger brushless computer fan would draw, then the Peltier device won't be working. If that's the case it will be a 'pull it apart' scenario to see if perhaps a wire has fused a connection.
