Possible reverse polarity or short circuit.

Hi Brian

You have not said what trips out, in your house or in your vehicle, on 240 v or 12 v, as there is no reset button on Engel fridges.

Depending on how old your Engel is, there is a 10a blade fuse on later models, as well as a 10a fuse in the cigarette lighter plug on the end of your 12 v power lead.

More info please. As others have said.

Is it "tripping" on 240 or 12V? What is tripping - a circuit breaker or fuse and where is this circuit breaker or fuse?

We can' possibly give you a good answer without this info. Or we could guess and that may be wrong.
