Question about Coleman Electric Cooler 40 Beverage Cooler

Electric Cooler 40 problem

I am a big rig driver so for me a working refrigerator is a matter of survival. For a year and a half my Coleman Electric Cooler 40 was doing fine, but for a month now it is cooling less and less. There is no ice buildup, both fans seem to blow as usual but the cooling is decreasing day by day. Is there anything else but the fans that ages in the system. Actually what is the principal it works on to start with?

You may also want to ensure that the fan that removes hot air from the Peltier module is indeed spinning quickly and not sluggishly. As stated before dust can affect the efficiency of the Peltier Module.

An easy way to find out if your fan motor is worn is to turn the cooler on while watching the fan (with goggles on to protect the eyes!) if it starts off slowly and takes a while to get up to speed you should probably look in to replacing the fan motor.

Need a fan blade for a coleman frig. 40inch that goes in the big-rig I bought it at walmart and have had problems with it fot awhile, now everything's working exept for the fan blade if I could find out...

Good day,
Most large appliance parts houses carry a large assortment of fan blades for replacement.
Take in what's left of the old blade and the model number if you have it.
Usually if they don't carry it, their a wealth of info as to how and where to go.

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
