Hi all, can someone please tell me what the battery symbol (with a B in it) on the LCD display means on my 5yo 40l engel.
Thanx

At a guess I reckon it is telling you to replace the lithium battery that runs the display.

your lucky to have the LCD temp read out work. I bought two 40lt Engels new of that era and neither has had the batteries last longer than a few weeks. I gave up bothering, I still have them but much prefer the 47lt ARB fridge I have as well.

Mine's 3 years old and still on the original battery. Got an idea that Engel may have upsized the battery at some stage. The instructions are written on the inside of the lid. Needs a CR2032 on mine. Might have been the smaller LR44 on earlier ones.

Just looked at my receipt and my 40L will be 6 years old in 2 days time lol 9/8/07 purchase and still on the original battery.

Dammit, I just know what is going to happen now, thanks very much ha ha.

hi AFB
are you sure they are in the correct way and do you test the volts of the batteries before inserting them
they should read above 3volts if in good new condition
I take my volt meter with me when buying those oxide batteries as I have found a lot of them are below 3v on the shelf so don't last long
mine has LR 44's and only last 12months change them in march/april every year
try and buy them where there is a high turn-over of batteries
cheers

ps
you have to remove the hinge screws and also 2 more on the upper rear end of the fridge so you can lift that cover up to get access to the batteries
turn the bat cap with a 5 cent coin that's basicly the only use left for those coins these days ---lol
don't drop any screws or get them mixed up
the 2 rear ones are self tapping type and the lid hinge screws are metal threads
cheers
