Great but is noisy

Fridge is brilliant extremely cold and reliable, current draw is much lower than the Waeco I previously used. The only thing that I don’t like is the drone of the compressor especially noticeable at night. I’m always confident when I turn the fridge on it will not let me down. Show details

The fridge the pros use

10 years old. Almost completely silent still. Works perfectly, always has. Tough, reliable and bench mark for the serious camper and fishermen. Do yourself a favour, don’t bother with the rest, buy the best. Show details

Loudest Fridge Ever

Purchased new, plugged it in sounded like a mack truck starting up! Put a sound meter over it which read 55db. User manual states 40db. Went back to point of sale and put sound meter over new one on display with store staff same reading. Emailed Engel Australia about loudness, they will not respond!!!!! Too loud to have in house or at campsite. $2000 down the drain. Show details

Amps and motor

Ad a yachty liveonbord and can say this model is great. No 1 . Don't make noise in my HF AM RADIO. Waco do.

I had a 40 l used 28 Ramos a day in 30 at a 1.5 setting, full up. This up at 11' S 152' East in PNG

Fridge Good - After sales service RUBBISH

Bought a MT80F in October, 2010. In May 2011 the little screw cap on the 12-volt lead (plug into cigarette lighter) broke. I emailed Customer Service - was basically told that it was of "superior quality" and to take it to the retailer I bought it from.

The retailer has told me that "they" meaning Engel are being rude and arrogant and difficult to deal with, and I would probably just get a replacement plug.

For a $1900 fridge/freezer a replacement (better quality) lead would not be too much to ask.

I'll will be trying a Waeco next time.
Fridge/freezer is good. Good Size for family
After sales service is RUBBISH, 12 volt lead is cheap and RUBBISH
