Fridge for all
its affordable & made the same as the other types, I have 2 of them 1 used as a freezer and the other as a fridge.
Control is easy to set and read.
I have seen the exact same fridge with different branding for $899 so save yourself the money and buy this one.
The only better designed fridge(compressor) is the Engel but the 40 ltr fridge is $1375 AU .So at $499 Au i can nearly buy 3 stirling 40ltr fridges.
Well worth every cent
I had an Engle fridge/freezer prior to buying my Stirling. Engle was a great fridge but couldn't justify spending the money again for a higher up the ladder brand.
I bought the Stirling fridge/freezer from Aldi and it has been an absolute ripper! Never had an issue and works a treat. We use ours constantly in the back of the 4x4. Camping trips, day trips, groceries etc
If they come on sale again I'd buy a second one
Problems from day 4
Hi, I bought this fridge from Aldi in April 2016. On the 4th day the LED panel flashed and didn't work, I called Aldi and they were good about it and said they can refund me or go to a repairer in Blacktown NSW and get it fixed for free as they sold out and could not exchange the fridge. I chose to get it repaired because i couldn't justify an extra $400 extra over spend on another suppliers fridge if i got a refund.
The gentleman fixed it and was very nice about it. It lasted around 4 months (probably 3 times a month it actually got used) th...
Bought this fridge for my work ute 9 months ago. It has run 24/7 on a dual battery and 20 watt solar panel without tripping the battery isolator until mid 30 degree heat started. It ran continuously trying to keep cool and tripped the battery. i wouldn't recommend it for a full time fridge.
Stirling 40 Lt camping fridge/freezer
Owned the fridge for only a few years and used it a few weeks each year and found it great. Now the fridge temp is not regulating and the fridge freezes. I check the temp with a thermometer that goes down to -10 and the temp goes way past -10 and off the scale, but the fridge temp gauges only shows 8 deg C. I think it only has a 12 month warranty.

Only used it a few times but it has been great and after being turned off holds its temperature for a long time.

For less than half the price of a Waeco, I'm stocked
Price: $499 each (Gutted as they were $450 6months ago)
Weight: Around 12 Kgs so easy for one person to carry but handles make it super easy for two kids to carry.
Accessories: 240 Lead and 12/24 Volt lead. Protector bag. (Don't give the bag much of a wrap as its very thin and unlikley to be much of an insulation layer.)
We have been looking for ages at Fridge deals and settled on a Waeco 65L Dual Zone. Before laying out the cash we asked around some of the grey nomad crowd. After hearing way too often " dont touch em unless ...your on 240VCA" we decided to wait. Well the Sterling (Aldi) Fridges came up on sale and we ended up getting two. We figured that for slightly less (around $200) than a single 65 Litre we bought two 40L units. One we are using as a fridge and the other a freezer :) Easier to carry one at a time, they seem to use less power (in Watt/Hours) than the Waecos and if we only go away for a short break only need to take one with us saving space again.
On measuring the internal capacity of the advertised stirling 40L frig,I found it to be only 36.8 litres!
my old mobicool (waeco) was 39.8 lt. This means 3 bottles less drink can fit. Not happy..
Otherwise has the latest technoligy and works well. The 240v option is an excellent option.
Works very well when it works! 2 x fridges both failed eventually!
UPDATE - So I have owned two of these fridges in the past three years. First one I owned I received a refund after it kept freezing everything for the second time after it was fixed. Now the second fridge I purchased is about three years old and is now given up working properly. Faults are that the Fridge lid is warped and doesn't close/latch properly. The other issues is that the fridges temperature is way off what the lcd panel says that it is. I usually have the fridge set at minus 3 degrees but the actual fridge temp inside is showing minus...22 degrees. Possibly a thermister issue again, but I'm seriously over getting these fridges repaired. I mean they are ok for the price but clearly just don't last. I wont be buying another one again. Please note, these fridges have a different lid design so I believe the warping of the fridge lids is no longer an issue but not 100% sure. OLD REVIEW - Bought two of the Stirling (its really a Primus fridge made by Companion) Branded Aldi 40 Litres Fridges. Things I liked: 1) Price was only $450 for a 40l fridge (very very cheap) 2) BD35f Secop (Danfoss) compressor (this is now owned by the chinese but still a great compressor) 3) Inbuilt battery protection works great
