Sorry about another fridge question , I was wondering what you owners of the weaco ff90 usually set your fridges to for cooling anf freezing , it has a scale from 1 to 7 , this will assist me on my first trip with the fridge not to spoil food , I know some of you will say try it and find out , but I thought why not use the wise experience of many here lol

Ps : I promise no more fridge questions Venus Bay

Hi Eric.. Go to Dick Smiths and buy one of those thermometers for $15 which have outside and inside temps on it and then you can work on your settings........I have found 1 to 1.5 degrees is pretty good for not freezing vegies and drinks..... Since i have had my thermometer it has been easy to create a close relationship with my sweetheart fridge.....___________________________________

Eric, I have recently got a Waeco FF70 from the sale that everyone was on about. Same compressor as yours but yours is a bit bigger [about 20 lites at a guess] so it might not be quite the same.

Just as a point mine seems to be the only one that came with more than very minor cosmetic damage. Had a lid that is a bit twisted and the "claws" that are supposed to hold the lid down are both broken. Seal is being assisted with Velco at the moment but the people at Fridgeshop [Bobby mainly] have been real good and are organising a replacement for it as we speak. Should get here in the next week or two. I'm more than happy given the price I paid for it though.

I have been running it off the mains, but through the 24/12 volt converter that comes with it. Its got mainly Coke in it at the moment and at 2.5 on the scale of 7 its keeping it at a constant 1 degree celcius. I ran it at the full 7 for a while and it sat on -18 all the time.

I'm not sure if there would be a difference running it in the car but I'd start at about 2.5 and adjust from there.

Hi Eric,

I concur with what Moneypit said.

Mine is the FF90 too, and I run between 2 and 3 on the dial. This keeps the temp between 4 and 0 degrees.

I have an Engel digital temp gauge (ironic isn't it) and notice that when I put more food/drink in the fridge it often stays high, like 10 degrees for a few hours. I am assuming that this is because the food is warm and near the sensor for the thermometer.

Strangely, I have noticed that when running in the house, on the 24v rectifier, it runs cooler, than when in the car on 12v. I usually have the fridge on setting 2 when on 24V, and setting 3 when in the car. I also suspect that this is due to it being warmer in the car than in the house.

Have fun
