Question about GE J Series 18.2 cu. ft. Top Freezer No-Frost Refrigerator TBX18AABWW
The Vitrifigro (Model 5060, dated 2006) in my second-hand campervan works OK on gas and mains power but not on house battery power. The indicator light for battery power clicks on and off continually and there is no cooling, even though the house batteries are fully charged. However, when driving and the batteries (house and starter batteries) are all receiving charge from the alternator, the fridge works OK. I have previously gone back to the campervan dealer about the fridge and he replaced a fuse, which seemed to fix the problem but only for a while. I would be grateful if someone on Fixya could throw some light on this frustrating trouble before I go back to the dealer again.
You can fit a relay connected through the vehicle ignition that will prevent the fridge running on 12V unless the motor is running, this way you will not drain the battery.
