My TC 35 fl just died while on a trip and a friend advised me to look for a fuse of some type. Removed the inspection cover that holds the fan and could see nothing replaceable so I may have to take it to a repairer.
But is it it worth the trouble with wages as they are today.
Any suggestions or just off to the dump.
In the tip of the power cord there is a 5amp fuse. Remove the end cover by pulling it off and the fuse is easily accessable
I have no instruction book
Do I leave on overnight & use it the next day without power of any sort? How long will it stay cold?
I have run on 240 volt and 12 volt each for over 12 hours and has got as far as slightly chilled, why?
Do you have a thermometer to accurately read the inside temperature? Around $30 will buy you a Waeco or Engel, and about $35 will get you a cordless temperature read out model. Anything less is pure guesswork with the inside temperature. I have just finished cleaning out the fluff and dust build up in the electrical end of my TC35. Within an hour, the inside temperature has dropped from 8 to 4.6C and is still falling.
How long does 35l take to get cold??
We normally put it on an hour before putting anything into it. They will hold temp low but will not cool things down so you have to have things cold before putting them into the Waeco.
Hope this helps.
I usually let the fridge chill down overnight before using it next day. Once the cabinet is cold, I have put hot drinks in the fridge and they get cold. If I put hot drinks or food into the fridge without chilling the cabinet down first, the fridge has to draw out the heat from both the cabinet and the drinks or food. Just like a domestic fridge at home, it would struggle to do this. Treat it like the home fridge and make sure it is cold before placing anything inside and you will be surprised at how well they work.
Can the fridge be layed on its side??
