Question about ThermoKool MR-138

1 Answer

Does it really cool to 40 degrees

I am giving myself a shot everyday with a medicine that requires me to keep it at 36 to 46 degrees. While we are traveling that is difficult and I am researching the ThermoKool MR-138 that we could take in the car and the motel. It says it will cool to 40 degrees. Do you know if it does or any other item we could buy?

Re: Does it really cool to 40 degrees

Many of the beverage coolers that run on the 'solid state' principle will work...provided the temp in the car is not more than 70 degrees. You can get one at any auto supply store for 40-100 dollars.

Ge monogram not cooling properly

It doesn't cool
  1. Condenser coils
Make sure you dust off the condenser coils to prevent dust build up and overheating due to it overworking. Simply unplug and use a long coil cleaning brush to get rid of debris.
  1. Check seals
If your refrigerator door seal is broken, warm air is pushing its way inside the unit, thus causing it to not cool properly. Prevent this from happening by replacing your seal and keeping the cool air inside.
  1. Temperature controls
Ensure that your thermostat is set correctly, usually 38-40 degrees Fahrenheit.
  1. Defective condenser fan
When this fan is defective, cold air is prevented from flowing through the vents. It may require replacement.
  1. Compressor issues
Check if there are clicking sounds coming from the compressor as it tries to start. If there is a clicking, it is one of only two options, either the start capacitor or a bad compressor. A start capacitor is fairly inexpensive whereas a sealed system repair on the compressor is very expensive and often not cost effective. Refrigerator Repair Help Troubleshooting and Parts

Runs constantly to maintain 40 degrees, requires highest setting

Not sure how old it may be, but you can check a few things to see if it's defrosting properly. Also clean the condenser coils under the refrigerator to insure good circulation of air over coils. In the picture below you will need to check out three things until we find the problem. Defrost timer, defrost heater, and defrost thermostat. Let me know when your ready, Sea Breeze

Kenmore elite refrigerator. both compartments (bottom freezer and top refrigerator)are not keeping with the temperature setting. the food is cool but not cold as it should be. how can I test to see if...

Really most folks have to keep their setting on their fridge on about a 6-7 or-8 setting with the amount of food that is kept in the fridge now.
YOU CAN KEEP AN EYE ON THE RELATIVE temp if you like by placing a fridge thermometer in the appliance. Optimal fresh food should be around 40-43 degrees F on average to keep things on the cooler side without freezing.
Hope this helps

To keep a constant 40 degrees the fridge would have to be running 24/7. Any fridge will maintain the 40 degrees but in your case, if you are going to be travelling, you should be looking at a fridge that can run on mains and battery power. It might even pay you to invest in an extra battery, dedicated to the fridge and charged by mains power and/or the vehicle alternator.
