Question about Coleman (100076) Compact Refrigerator

1 Answer

Koolmate No Heat or Cold

My Koolmate 40 is about 5 years old and while the fan motor still operates fine and I replaced the power cord about a month ago it abruptly stopped cooling (or heating when reversed). I checked for continuity across the theromelectic cooler so while it obviously isnt functioning correctly it is still a viable circuit. Any other troubleshooting tips and or knowledge of where to simply find a replacement thermoelctric unit would be appreciated.

Igloo Koolmate model 1301405, I need power cord that you plug in your car cigarette lighter where can I find one to order. It doesn't list is at Igloo web site

Call their customer service. The number can be found on their website. They have it and it can be sent out, it just isn't listed on their website. I ordered mine a few months ago. It was a little more than I wanted to pay, but a small price for a working unit on a road trip!

I have a model 5645 and it has stopped cooling

the outside fan can be replaced with a 92 x 25 mm computer cooling fan. Inside fan is a 60 x 10 mm. Remove the cover on the inside by pulling straight up. Plug it in and check if the metal heat sink on the inside is getting cold. If it does, then the problem is one or both of the fans.

Coleman model 5645 inside fan motor not working .. how do you open the cover to get to the fan and motor

pull straight up on the cover. Remove the 4 screws that hold the fan to the heat sink. You can then remove the 2 torx screws and remove the heat sink if you need to. Clip the wires as close to the bad fan as possible so you will have enough for the new fan.

The outer fan dont work. where can i get a replacement ?

Check at your local computer/ Hobby Electronics parts store.

Take the fan out of the unit and to the store with you, that way they can match it to one they may have in stock.

Coleman 12-volt cooler stoped working/fan burned out

Sound like you have the newer version. These fans can be found at Radio Shack or anywhere computer parts are sold. It doesnt have to be an exact replacement. Just big enough to fit over the Cooling fins. Also make sure it's a 12 volt motor

Kool Mate 40 Cord melt down

The unit itself is the problem. You should call coleman customer service and tell them you have been haveing this problem from the start and ask to talk to a manager. Tell them that the cord has been replaced numerous and that you checkd voltage and this is fine. You want a new unit because it has been happening since you bought it and all the keep sending is the cord. Tell them if anythig bad happens pertaining to safety issues that you don,t want to call the better bussiness office and that they will be responsible for any damage done due to a faulty unit. Be professional about it and I am sure they will help you.
