Beware

After 350 hours our fridge is no longer working. It has a gas leak in the sealed unit. It has never been on corrugated roads. Terrible customer support for 3 year old fridge/freezer. We are extremely disappointed will not buy Evakool again.

Repair nightmare

I have an IB 50 ac/dc fridge freezer , it is 6 years old and now the thermister (thermostat controller) is no longer working. I have contacted Evakool re the problem, and ordered a new one, but 6+ weeks later I am still waiting for the part with no eta of supply. Be very careful when buying Evakool as they do not seem to be able to supply parts for repairs to be carried out. Show details

Unbeatable service, great products

First I got the fridge/freezer unit, and I'll add more once it's done a proper trip, but so far very good. Later ordered the travel cover and aux power supply. It's almost Christmas and still they managed such a fast delivery I cannot believe it. Customer service staff I spoke with on the phone couldn't have been better, friendly, efficient and made efforts to ensure I got exactly the right product for my need. Show reply

Ripped off

A load of junk. First one did not work properly so took it back. No refund but they did replace it with another evakkool which worked last Xmas. Needed it again this Xmas but would not get cold so now out of warranty.$750 to have it work only once. Evakool they call it, but if like me you buy one , you are an eva fool.

Never Kool

Purchased 60 lt it lasted approx. 6 weeks then stopped working, had it replace with another it only lasted about same distance in time. They work when your got them hooked up at home or driving on smooth bitumen, but the moment you start driving over rough bitumen or gravel roads ( and i still mean roads not rough off roading ) ,they fault and wont reset. And the warranty, evakool will admit that they're was a fault made when assembling your unit, but there is no claim back on goods lost ( persished ) due to the fridge not working correctly.
Cheap
Misleading infomation on what it could do and very poor warranty

The fridge seems to be working but it doesn’t run as per temperature gage everything freezes. Is this an easy fix?

Hi, I have fridge freezer Eva oil fridge mate FM model (great unit)
When removing from my vehicle it was wired to battery as suggested by tech, I just cut the wire as I was in a rush, the corded plug has 1 and 2 indicated on it and the dual wire has writing on one and not the other, it appears connecting plug has the wire with writing on it going to side with ‘2’ stamped on it, is this the positive ? Thought I best check .

I suggest you contact Evacool, possibly email a photo to them with the question. I have always found them very helpful.

Re "this fridge is a pile of junk". Has anyone got any ideas on how I can fix it myself? Need help please, don't want to spend any more money on it.
