Hi there,
I would like to know if this model waeco uses the chinese compressor or the Danfoss?
Also any first hand comments on this fridge would be greatly appreciated weather they be good or bad. looking to buy one second hand and thought they may have used the danfoss compressor in the earlier days.

Thanks
Chris.

Pretty sure you will find it is the Chinese compressor, will still operate at the same temps but they are not as efficient power wise as the Danfoss

The Chinese compressor which is usually a Wanbao or Domus are equally as good as the Secop/Danfoss. The Wanbao would be the pick of all low voltage compressors in the hobby end of the market.

Don't listen to any rubbish they are not as efficient as it is not factual.

Engel, Secop/Danfoss, Wanbao and Domus all equal in the power consumption v cooling stakes. The Engel runs for considerably more time compared to the Secop/Danfoss and Domus. Wanbao is larger than BD35F in capacity and has higher amperage and runs for less time. Most efficient low voltage compressor is Mitsubishi. Not easily available in Australia and expensive as swash plate type compressor.

Andrew my response above with regard to efficiency is repeating what the technical department told me at Waeco when I enquired, 12 months ago.
Perhaps the inefficiency is related to the cabinet and insulation design not the compressor ??

I have a CDF35 Waeco with the Chinese compressor and its a great little unit. Power consumption on average I have worked out to about 3.5a/hr
