Question about Refrigerators

Open Question

My vintage Engel is about 20 years old. It still runs on the mains voltage but not on the 12v. The 12v is getting to the end of the cable so it must be a problem with the fridge. But like I said, it runs fine on the mains. Would like to get it fixed really rather than buy a new one because it fits perfectly on runners in a hole at the back of my camper. Struggling to find a new one that will fit.

There is a very likely possibility that the resistance heater for the 12 Volt side of the operation is open. This heater can be checked for continuity using an OHM meter from the terminals for the 12 volt .

SOURCE: Fridge on Fridge freezer not working

Ok there is a drain pan under the evap. coil under the fan that may be clogged and full of ice there is a 3/4" hole the water drains out of that needs cleared if there is a puddle of ice over it , the ice will also effect the airflow traveling down the duct to the fresh food section of the unit.
If there is no ice puddle at the bottom of the refrigerator then make sure the unit is cooling well by making sure it has been running for 10 min. or so and checking the coil in the freezer , it should have a small layer of frost on it showing its getting cold the whole way through it. Let me know how this works.

If you would like to stop the defrost timer from intermittently causing this, the defrost timer will need to be replaced. It's a simple part to replace and not expensive. Thanks, Sea Breeeze

I changed battery ends & now my heater blower dont run


I would suggest you replace the entire battery cable

When you cut off the ends you allow moisture to enter
a cable & corrode,exactly why you cut them off to start
with,battery acid corrosion etc.

What you should do is remove & clean both ends of both
cables & in the case of your 20 year old vehicle,remove &
clean ALL GROUND WIRES that you can find

You can also use your volt meter to voltage drop the cables
or any wire by placing the meter leads in parallel to the cables

I think the blower issues is unrelated

A loose wire connector or bad resistor

Try tracing the wires from the 12 volts plug to the other end of the wires. You might find a broken conductor or a blown fuse in there.

Hello

Check the following:

* Circuit breaker on main control box is tripped
* Fuse blown (check fuse in main control box assembly).
* Incorrect polarity at battery terminals
* Dead batteries.
* Charging cable is still connected to charging receptacle
* One of the cable connections at the main control box is loose.
* Control connection cable disconnected
* Broken key switch
* Throttle stuck fully open
* Throttle control potentiometer broken.
* Speed potentiometer broken
* Battery voltage too low.
* Faulty charging cable.
* Charger not working.
* Charging circuitry in main control box assembly not working


If these check OK, the problem is likely to in the control connection cable or upper control box Verify that the upper control box is getting 24V. (Blue wire on red connector.)

* If the upper control box is not getting 24V, replace control connection cable

* If the upper control box is getting 24V, check key switch operation and verify wiring in the upper control box. Trace voltage from keyswitch on to find where the problem occurs. (Replace upper control box if necessary.)

* Charge batteries with a 12V charger or replace if necessary.

* Ohm test the charging cable - replace if necessary.

* Test scooter with a different charger, if new charger works, replace charger.

* Check wiring in main control box assembly - replace in line relay if necessary
* If batteries, charger, and all wiring is good, replace controller PCB. (Note the model number for the PCB, for example 1208-2330.)

Hi there, My 4 year old 45l Engel fridge is running for 3-4 sec then turning off for 3-4 sec. It is constantly running this way. This is happening on 12v and 240v. Any suggestions? Robert Lacy


Oh dear this is not good news
There is a problem with the compressor where the motor is drawing too many amps and the safety switch (this protects the motor) is open circuiting to prevent damage to the motor.
Nothing you can do but takeit in for repairs

My 1994 Jeep Cherokee Country - 6 cyl 4WD is clicking and not turning over. My battery is a few years old and I replaced the starter 2 years ago. I have been told that it may be the solenoid.....any...


First, do not assume anything. Check the battery with a volt meter and make sure there is 12.v or better there. Clean cable terminals where they contact the battery, check both ends of cables for good clean solid connection. Since you hear a click, that is good ...ignition switch etc is likely good. Check the voltage at the starter : large cable should have 12v, small wire should have 12v when key is turned to "start" position. If you have both, starter has failed. Some Jeeps have an additional starter relay inside the power distribution center near the battery. if you have voltage at the starter, the relay is good. If when you test battery, voltage is low, have it charged and load tested. If battery fails test, no other tests are valid.
Once started, check for running voltage of at least 12.9v with all accessories and lights on. At no time should voltage drop below 12.5, or should it continue to creep down. If it does, the alternator may be faulty.(providing belt is good and tight)

12v &240v connections on an ENGEL COOLER


AUTOMATIC AC/DC CHANGEOVER: All Engel Fridge Freezers can be plugged into both AC and DC at the same time. The Engel is smart enough to use the AC while available and then automatically switch to DC when the AC is no longer working. It will also sense the resumption of AC power and automatically switch back to AC making it ideal for high hurricane areas and places where power disruption is common.
