I bought one but it was missing the cord, so I hooked it to the benchtop supply. I found out if you place positive to the red terminal/grey wires under the outside cover and negative to the blue/black wires it cools. With a DPDT switch and a couple of LEDs you could wire it so you dont need that special coleman cord, any lighter cord will work provided it can handle about 6 amps, I recommend 12 to 14 gauge wire and a 6 amp fuse.

Where you plug the cord into the cooler you will see red and blue on one side of cooler plug and red on one side and blue on the other side of the power cord. If you want toe cooler to work, plug the two together where the blues are both showing on the same side when connected.

Our Westinghouse RS662V fridge is tripping the power. Has done it twice in the past 2 months. Any suggestions?


This solution is one possible answer if it applies to you. My fridge did the same and i thought the fridge was dead. The fridges freezer compartment's door was being left open and the freezer would thaw out and produce lots of water which would accumulate in the rear in a container which overflowed causing the fridge to trip the power. Closing the door and drying the rear container solved the problem. There are other causes too but if this applies to you it is worth giving it a try. Good Luck!

Main residual circuit breaker trips fridge approximately every 12 hours


normal fridge takes 7- 12 amps to start, if after 12 hours it trips i would lean towards a compressor issue. once it heats up the comp. may draw alot of amps causing it to trip. is it the only item on that circut? does it still trip being alone on the circut?

Fridge works on gas...but not on AC


Your heater should measure 44 ohms, give or take 10%.

95 Ohms is way off. The RM2310 uses a 92 ohm heating element, perhaps you installed / were sold the wrong heating element?

Refrigerator wouldn't cool


Hi!!

Is there any light coming on on the board?? If not, ckeck for Tripped Breaker or blown fuse, if OK, check propane tank.

Take the grill under the fridge or to the left of it, (4 screws), that's where the refrigerator's power outlet is, check for 120v or use an extension cord and plug fridge to it. If fridge works, check for short or loose wire from outlet to breaker panel..

Don't forget to rate this post. Good Luck!!

Continues to make ice when grill cover is off, then trips on safety limit #2 when replaced. condensor has been fully cleaned


If this is a combination gas grill with the accessory fridge mounted in the cabinet, then the issue is that once you put the grill cover on, you are preventing proper airflow/circulation needed to keep the fridge's compressor ventilated enough to keep operating.

Try leaving the grill cover off and move the grill/fridge out of direct sunlight, as the thermal heating of the cabinet isn't helping the fridge get enough air circulation to help it (the compressor) run cool enough to keep from tripping the thermal overload sensor (thermistor or Klicxon themal protection device) mounted on the compressor.

This device prevents the compressor from extreme heating that can cause the compressor have a catastrophic failure.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Coleman portable model 5640 cooler cord


Jo Ann,

You can google "coleman 5640" and quite a few websites will come up that offer repair parts and the cord is one of them. There are only three parts that you can still buy for that model cooler. The cord, the motor, and the removable tray. Hope this helps.

Coleman 5640 cooler


The cover on the inside just pulls off. Inside/Outside fans pull off. 2 screws to dismount motor. Unscrew leads to terminal. Most truckstops carry the motor, otherwise search for Colman 5640.
