where can i get the 12volt cable from
Polarity of lead where it connects to fridge
What number is used for a freezer on the Roman car fridge freezer
So I got this fridge for a steal marked down a few weeks ago for $499. Runs fine on 240. On 12v keeps throwing up E1 and every now and then E3. I used the app dropped the battery protect to low. It seems to do it after about a minute of being on. Had the multimeter on the battery (100ah deep cycle) and goes from 12.7v and randomly spikes down to 7.18v then goes straight back up. Can anyone explain where I have gone wrong.
Sorry no, had no problems over Christmas New Year with 200w blanket and 70amh battery
if your reading that at frig its because you cabling is too thin... you need thicker wires so voltage drop not high. or you battery is on way out...... try same on car battery if different its your battery
I have one that I've used on 240v with no problems. I use it off the solar system in my bus and have no problem. But, when I use it on the solar system I get the same e1 error you do and it drives me nuts. I think its the quality of the connection to that battery box.
I see on ebay you can get waaco plug to go into an Anderson plug, I am going to measure very carefully to see it the waaco and roman plugs are the same. Or get a better battery box
Ok, I've gone through all the questions and answerd. Having all the same problems about the E1 error. Switched over to the low battery protection on the app despite the app protesting against this as an option. What concerns me now is how quickly it appears to be draining the battery. Within 5-10 mins, the app tells me that the battery is at 60%. It was fully charged, surely it shouldn't be pulling that much draw so quickly. The temp is set at 8 degrees. Please don't tell me this fridge performs this poorly. Help please.
Hi Dave - I’ve found the factory cigarette lighter plug is terrible. The pin isn’t held in strongly. I’m about to replace my plug. I think this will be the solution. Battery percentage is estimated based on voltage level, it’s likely not 60% at all but the charge shows that due to the voltage drop from the lighter socket. I can run mine for 2.5 days at 6 degrees of a 38Ah deep cycle battery (also from Aldi actually) but yeah I’m the car the lighter plug is giving me issues I’m pretty sure.
we run our domestic fridge at 3 degrees, what temperature setting should I set the roman fridge at
All depends the roman is a fridge/ freezer it may start to freeze at 3 degrees i set the the one i have at 5 degrees noproblem with it, you could start with that and se how you like it.
I have had my fridge wired directly to the battery but it will only work when the engine is running
question eagle did you cut the12v battery cable and wire it up inside the vehicle, and why when you have the cigarette plug to plug into. please I need more info.
The auto electrician ran a completly seperate AWG 11 twin core , as per the manual, directly from the battery to a switch in the back of my wagon. The cigarette option came up as E1 if the car was running or not.
have you downloaded the app for the fridge on your phone, this is one way to change the voltage protection and stop E1 witch is error message and cutting the fridge out set the voltage protection to low when using 12v.
I have downloaded the app for the fridge and my bluetooth is on. It does not pick up the fridge via bluetooth. Fridge is on. Phone is on. Bluetooth on and scanned several times. App downloaded. Still nothing. I have tried everything. No success.
if the app has been downloaded and Bluetooth is on, have you clicked on fridge above add device it should open.
I clicked on 'add device' and it just keeps searching. Bluetooth on, fridge on. It does not pick up anything. Can i upload a screenshot?
Hi Marius, just click the arrow above Add device it will open you are trying to open it in the wrong place Bluetooth is already on no need to go into Add devise again.
why is mine not working on 12v?
A bit more info will help marie, please tell us the steps you have taken when plug in to 12v.
Appreciate your reply. I am new to this fridge so still getting to know it. Seems to work well when connected to 240v. However, I tried to run the fridge via 2nd car battery, which is installed for this purpose, and it reads E1. Didnt work at all. What have I missed?
I had the same problem marie when I put it on the battery it would work for a short time then cut out and show E1, I new my battery was good no problem there reading the manual more found on the bottom page 21 E1 shows error message the fridge will cut out if battery voltage is to low or to check battery monitor setting is in low, and to do this you must download the app on your phone. so download the app google the roman fridge app, once on the phone set the monitor setting to low and that's it it will work fine much easer to set the temp from the app as well let us know how things turn out or if I can help more.
