What does the eco mean and should it always be set in eco?

check your instructions

Not sure on exact tollerances
But on eco mode the set temperature will be more tolerant to variances
For example.
A fridge set to 5℃ will go up to 8℃ before compressor kicks in and cools fridge back down to probably 4℃ in eco mode. If eco is not set. It will have less temperature tolerance and compressor will probably kick in at about 6℃ and try keep it at exactly 5℃ or set temp.
This will chew more power

We have a 65 l mammoth dual zone fridge. It runs smoothly on 240 v but when running on 12 v after a short period of time (from 1-3 hours) it is blowing the fuse on the 12 v battery fuse but not the fuse on the fridge. We have tried up to 25 amp fuse and it still blows. Any suggestions on what might be the problem? Thanks in advance.

Will these fridges put off a lot of heat? I'm concerned it will heat up the interior of the Coaster significantly, thus putting strain on the AC system.

Na. Not a noticible amount . Has a small fan unit on the back. I'd say the 3 way fridges would put off a lot more heat.

I have a 65lt Primus mammouth dual zone the fridge is showing e1 even though the battery is over 12v.
All our food in the freezer has defrosted

That's what mine started doing. Plug it into 240v see if it works. Mine had e1 coming up while on 12v with full battery. Worked fine on 240 for about a month. Then finally died. Take it back to place of purchuse. I actually had really good dealings with primus. No hassle,,,, Here's a new one warranty :)

Neil.W59
Neil.W59

it is either a fault that needs to be taken to a repairer under the 3 yr warranty or your battery no longer holds a charge which can be the case even though they appear to charge up. Get the battery checked first.

Also, put the 3 stage battery setting on the lowest.
My new 100aH battery would cause the E1 setting to show after a while if I had the setting on full. Then the fridge would turn off. At 1st I thought it was a fault. (Maybe it is?)
Ever since I've had it on the lowest battery setting, it has never happened.
Dont ask me why but?

What ambient temp will companion fridges work at?

1 answer

Alan,
I have had the fridge in the back of my truck running while at work in summer. They maintain the cold but they do have to work harder and chew through battery power when in that situation as you can't run them in eco mode in that much heat. I have fans that are attached to a heat sensor and start when the ambient temp gets to 50 deg Celsius but I expect that it still gets higher than that. I hope that helps.

Mine had an internal gas leak after 18 months. Becoming very difficult to deal with the claim. They took old one at service Centre. I'm still waiting for a new one. Impossible to get a hold of to find out where it is. Have a camping trip organized over Xmas which starts in 2 days. Looks like I'll be going without it again. Not happy.
