Question about Engel Freezer 12-Volt AC/DC Freezers

1 Answer

Fridge won't maintain low temp

Fridge working okay operating around 0 degrees then couldn't maintain temperature. Have checked DC power & leads okay. Display near temp knob not working and I am aware a replacement battery will operate same. Temp checked by Engel external monitor with internal probe. I'm thinking either a thermostat or possibly refrigerant problem.

What does the temp display on the freezer tell me?


unless this is a dedicated freezer only and not a side by side or over/under , there's no way it's going to get down too 0 degrees inside a warm home , nope not gonna happen

also its not good for you to set this there as compressor wont cycle properly there and entire freezer will ice up , then believe it or not it will get warmer not colder wastes a lot of power as well

What shld settings be as food is freezing in fridge it has side by side knobs saying colder mid less cold it is a westinghouse fan forced frost free freestyle unit


The settings are "relative". Someone with this fridge in Montana may need to run the same fridge with different settings than someone in Texas to get the same temperatures.

Many manufacturers recommend that the fresh food compartment should be 34 degrees F, and the freezer -10 to 0 degrees F. To set this properly, place a thermometer in the freezer (that can display temperatures as low as the desired temperature). Adjust the thermometer for the correct freezer temperature before going on to the fridge. A fully stocked freezer could take 12 hours or more for temperatures to stabilize after making changes to the thermostat. Once the -10 to 0 degree temperature has been achieved, set the fresh food compartment temperature.

Place a thermometer (that can display below freezing) in a 6 (or so) oz flexible plastic cup of water and place on a shelf in the fridge. A glass of water could break if the temperature gets below 32 degrees if the water turns to ice. The water acts as a buffer to rapidly changing temperatures when the door is opened to read the thermometer. If the fridge is "full", allow 24 hours for the temperature to stabilize before making changes.

If the fridge and freezer are empty, changes may be seen in just a few hours or less. Otherwise, wait the 12 / 24 hours for the freezer / fridge compartments.

I hope this helps and good luck!

Freezer temperature came up to about 35 degrees. We took all food out. Temperature is holding around 32 to 35 degrees. This is on the colder setting that used to read around 0 degrees. What do I need to...


If there is frost on the back of the freezer then there is a defrost problem. If no Frost then i would advise you to take the back off the freezer and see if there is any frost on the coils. If no then the compressor is insuffecient and or no freon.

What is the normal operational pressure in lo/hi side at the compressor of commercial freezer like dispaly case, reach in cabinet or other any low temp refrigeration uses 502 or408A/404a. is there any rule...


why yes there is. Generally speaking, the head pressure should be around the "ambient +30" rule.
That is, measure the entering air temp to the condenser, say 75 degrees. Now add 30 to that and get 105 degrees. Look at a P/T chart and see what the pressure is for that temp which is about 253 for R-404-A.
The evap on a freezer leads the load so, as a general rule, the evap temp is going to be around minus 10 degrees to get a 0 degree box. Coolers are different. So, the pressure for a minus 10 evap is around 25 or so. But the unit has to be close to operating temp. If the box is warm, naturally the pressure is higher. And what influences the pressure is whether or not it's a TXV or a cap tube system.
If a TXV and no receiver, charge by subcooling. If a receiver, fill by sight glass. If Cap tube, charge by superheat.
Hope that answers your question.

DO NOT TRY TO MODIFY TIMING CYCLE.you would need to completely modify printed circuit board and inbuilt computer......some freezers cycle around 6 to 8 hours.the temperature can only be checked say every 12 hours to get an average reading

Freezer temp


either stat is bad or charge is low. bypassing stat will achieve desires temp. if not then charge is low. if charge is low then buy new. if compressor valves are bad then buy new. to expensive to fix these days. new is cheaper. good luck. stat is power lead in , power lead out. kill power then tie em together to get constant on. be sure yor thermometor is good. i just spent 20000 dollars fixing ref at a hospital, only to find there thermometors were bad! good luck.
