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.

Mt27f-u1 12v not working

Try tracing the wires from the 12 volts plug to the other end of the wires. You might find a broken conductor or a blown fuse in there.

How much Power is Consumed by your Engel 12-Volt Refrigerator Freezer?

Refrigerator setting (minimum) and freezer setting (maximum - running continuously) the Engel 12-Volt Refrigerator Freezers use approximately 0.9 - 3.9 amps for the smaller units to 1.4 - 3.6 amps for the large 84 Quart MT80 unit. Basically your Engel 12-Volt Refrigerator Freezer uses less power than most 12-Volt coolers 1/2 their size. See our Engel Technical Chart for your particular 12-Volt Refrigerator Freezer.

Cant find the fuse for the refrig. no power

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.)

No water to ice maker or water dispenser

You're funny. This is a portable 12/120 volt model. It dosn't have a water dispenser or ice maker :-)

12v &240v connections on an ENGEL COOLER

AUTOMATIC AC/DC CHANGEOVER: All Engel Fridge Freezers can be plugged into both AC and DC at the same time. The Engel is smart enough to use the AC while available and then automatically switch to DC when the AC is no longer working. It will also sense the resumption of AC power and automatically switch back to AC making it ideal for high hurricane areas and places where power disruption is common.
