Question about Engel Refrigerators
I've had mysterious problems with the 12 volt power feed of the fridge (which refuse to be fixed - this is the third time it has failed). I have replaced the 12 volt power lead, checked the battery and its been into the repair shop - which found no problem, but the fridge will no longer go on 12 volts now. I wish to circumvent this problem by having permanent 240 volt power to it. this would also provide more flexibility to with my remote power system.

I suspect it's either the 240V heater element or the 240V thermostat which has failed. You can test the element by identifying the wires to it and performing a resistance check. The heating element is in the metal stack in the rear of the unit. Use an OHM meter and check for resistance, the higher the better, low or no resistance means the elemnt is bad. Make sure you check all the fuses on the control board also.

On your fridge freezer at the back there is a box that the fridge freezer 240 lead will go to lift up the box by following the instructions imprinted on the box. Then look at the melted lead and see if it has melted to the bare gold part. if it ant you are ok if it has then you have to take note of where all of the leads go Brown, blue, green/yellow then pull them out being careful to not to full out any over leads Ex. Now for the hard part find some one with a old fridge/freezer and ask them is you can take the lead of the back but make sure if your fridge freezer had an earth wire that there fridge/freezer has and has the same type of connection to plug it back into the part you pulled your lead out of. P.S the earth wire is the Green and yellow one. Then put them in your fridge and make sure the connections are not touching. Because that is probably why the over lead melted.

Check connection for 12 volts, at back of fridge behind vent cover .(outside) Make sure 12 volts getting to the lugs where they join. If you have 12 volts to there, unplug fridge at receptacle usually on left side by back of fridge, just to be safe. Remove cover on circuit board and look for a blown (glass type fuse in there.)

Your refrigerant may have completely separated in the system. Shut of the gas, disconnect the electrical and remove refrigerator from the coach or if you have sufficient room inside set it on a clean area. This operation is what is called burping the system.
1. From the base roll it onto the door and wait five minutes.
2. roll it onto the top and wait five minutes.
3. Roll it on the back and wait five minutes.
4. Return it to the base and wait five minutes.
Reinstall it or test it on electrical. It should show signs of cooling in about 30 minutes in the freezer compartment if the system is not plugged in the boiler.
