Kool Mate 40 Cord melt down

During the first year Igloo replaced my 12 volt cord twice due to meltdown. The cord gets very hot and the plastic around the fuse eventually deteriorates to the point you can smell it. After the one year warranty they refused to replace the cord blaming a possible voltage problem on my Pontiac Torrent. I measure the voltage to be app. 12.6 Volts. Well below their maximum rated operating voltage of 14 Volts. Is it a cord problem or is the unit drawing to much power?

The unit itself is the problem. You should call coleman customer service and tell them you have been haveing this problem from the start and ask to talk to a manager. Tell them that the cord has been replaced numerous and that you checkd voltage and this is fine. You want a new unit because it has been happening since you bought it and all the keep sending is the cord. Tell them if anythig bad happens pertaining to safety issues that you don,t want to call the better bussiness office and that they will be responsible for any damage done due to a faulty unit. Be professional about it and I am sure they will help you.

I had the same problem on a Coleman Powerchill. I cut the plug off and replaced it with another plug from an old spotlight. Worked fine ever since.

Igloo Koolmate model 1301405, I need power cord that you plug in your car cigarette lighter where can I find one to order. It doesn't list is at Igloo web site


Call their customer service. The number can be found on their website. They have it and it can be sent out, it just isn't listed on their website. I ordered mine a few months ago. It was a little more than I wanted to pay, but a small price for a working unit on a road trip!

Coleman model 5645 inside fan motor not working .. how do you open the cover to get to the fan and motor


pull straight up on the cover. Remove the 4 screws that hold the fan to the heat sink. You can then remove the 2 torx screws and remove the heat sink if you need to. Clip the wires as close to the bad fan as possible so you will have enough for the new fan.

Coleman 12-volt cooler stoped working/fan burned out


Sound like you have the newer version. These fans can be found at Radio Shack or anywhere computer parts are sold. It doesnt have to be an exact replacement. Just big enough to fit over the Cooling fins. Also make sure it's a 12 volt motor
