Can the fridge run on 240V and 12V at the same time?
The fridge can only have one power source connected at all times. Either 12V or 240V.
My fridge temperature moves up and down by a few degrees.
The fridge powers the compressor to allow for minimum power usage when running which can result in the temperature varying by up to 3 degrees + or-. This is perfectly fine.
No power to the fridge
Check the cables and ensure they are not damaged
Check the fuse has not blown, click here to watch the video on how to change the fuse. You would have been supplied with a few spare fuse. If a fuse has blown, you need to check the cabling as it has had a power surge – which has blown the fuse. It may happen again if the source of the power is not corrected.
Do I need to ventilate the fridge?
Like anything that is using power, we need to allow airflow. Allow around 5 to 8cm of ventilation to allow for fresh air to flow into the fridge and allow for efficient operation. Do not block vents on fridge.
Working on 240V but NOT 12V
If the fridge is working on 240V but has an error when powered by 12V. you need to check the power source, as the fridge is not getting enough power. Change the battery setting to low, and select ECO, and if this does not correct the problem, you will need to your battery.
Error 1 showing BATTERY VOLTAGE IS TOO LOW
DC voltage to the fridge isn't high enough to keep the fridge running.
Cause: Either Battery flat or wiring issue between your battery and fridge:
