Can someone tell me if the 240v and the 12v operation has a low temp cut out. This is what I suspect. The other day I was trying to see if the 2 fans together work better than 1 but when i checked it was getting hotter then i noticed it getting colder again. I was thinking my second fan was having adverse effect but actually helping get colder then was cutting the power off to fridge I think it had reached the low temp cut out and turned off then turned back on. The gas I assume doesnt have one just the intensity of the flame control knob. Thanks heaps .

lol I particularly like the new legs I made for it so I could put some foam underneath.I put another fan in on the bottom right looking from the back but forgot to take some snaps. When I visited the Perth camping show at ascot I told the salesman there that electolux should incorporate some changes to their fridges i.e fans ,insulation thickness and they would have a fantastic little fridge for our hot W.A weather.

cheers

AFAIK , on 3 way fridges , the 240v does have a cutout or thermostat , but the 12v doesn't . . . it just runs. Thats why they are so heavy on jiuce when running on 12v compared to something like engel/waeco etc.

I believe a few people have tried running their fridges on 240 using an invertor , purely to get the use of the thermostat , but gained little because on the inefficiencies of the invertor.

Thanks guys . So the 240v does have one but the 12v doesnt. Thats o.k as I only need the 12v when mobile so doesnt matter if it runs all the time. look forward to seeing how it does perform on 12v. Lately Ive only had it running on 12v for very small trips 20min to the park.

cheers
