DC applied to any standard refrigerator would quickly damage the compressor motor and any fans present since these are all AC only motors.
Some (probably no longer produced) units used DC in their operation; - Peltier Efffect units that used a semiconductor device that acts as a 'heat pump,' removing heat from inside the cabinet and dissipating it outside. - A new type of compressor that hummed like a low frequency speaker and surely used DC in the generation of the driving signal.
The first proved to be less efficient than our near century old compressor system and the odd low frequency noise produced by the second could not be contained adequately for home use.

Power supply failing on Cuisinart CWC 1600 cooler


The hayni made in china internal power supply has faulty transformers on it that fail within anywhere from 6 months to 2 years. Solution. Remove the back panel, take out the internal power supply and replace it with another compatible AC 120v to 12v DC 5amp power supply. Often laptop power adapters will work. I used this one: 60w-12v-5A-AC-DC-Power-Adapter from the website mini-box and it only cost 15 dollars. The peltier pad draws upwards of 5amps, but the rest of the system is super lower power. Now my wine cooler is more energy efficient and and will run for at least 5-10 years. This power supply replacement takes about 20 minutes. You need: philips screw driver, wire cutter and stripper, two 16 guage wire nuts. That's it.

My dometic rm2652 check light comes on after a the refrigerator is turned on with either gas or electric. What could be the problem?


First things to check would be the receptacle that fridge is plugged in to at back for power to it. You may have tripped breaker as well. Either way, you need to confirm that you have AC (hydro) voltage going to fridge, as well as test for min 11-12 Volts (DC) to back of fridge where the DC voltage connects. The check light coming on tells me you have 12 Volts DC, but just confirm. With propane on, make sure you have propane to stove etc, then try starting fridge on propane only setting, and listen or watch outside at burner for ignition. Let me know if you see it sparking, or hear it sparking.

No power to refrigerator unless it is hooked up direct. Think it is 12 volt dc supply connection. Could this be the problem only able to get partial # on part c1c 5122 is all we can read.


there is an inverter built in to the power supply that converts dc to ac to run the compressor if the fuse is ok. you will have to replace the supply . or for traveling you could hook up a small inverter to opperate the fridge while traveling this could be connected to the 12 vlt line for fridge power as it will not take much more power than the the fridge needs.

I have a thermoelectric wine cooler (heintzman DC2-40C) that no longer cools as it should....help....


Thermoelectric devices (or modules) require direct current (DC) for operation. Alternating current (AC), the form of electricity found in wall outlets, causes a thermoelectric device to alternate between heating and cooling, rendering it effectively useless. "Ripple" is the AC component of DC current and occurs when a power supply does not completely convert AC current to DC current.
You just might want to find out why the AC is not turning to the DC required, This could be a matter of chaning outlet plug or maybe the Ower pack that coverts the AC to DC.

Your possibly getting a DC voltage interuption Your convertor can be over heating causing a temporary drop. You can chech this by turning everthing dc supplied on and watch to see if the check light comes on then. Primary is electric and if no electric then it is suppose to look for gas.
