Hello all,

We have a 45 litre fridge freezer that we need to convert temporarily into just a fridge.Even on the lowest setting (two thermostats 1x fridge 1x freezer 1 bd35 compressor) on the freezer side,it still freezes my cans (no good)......The freezer internal construction consists of all aluminium sides,as the fridge is mostly fibreglass with 2 aluminium plates.Have tried installing 1/4 inch foam to internal floor of freezer,but still no good.
Have created open circuit to freezer thermostat control,but fridge thermostat takes over & still freezes in freezer comp........ What do you think I can do????
Any sugestions would be GREATLY APPRECIATED.

Thankyou in advanse

i got that model, great hey. No real answer except the stuff at the top is always less freezing than the bottom so I'd suggest just Keeping frozen stuff at the bottom (even a cardboard box) and be happy with using half the top space for your cans. Just a suggestion this, no testing done.

This is the first time I have read that a portable fridge is working too good:-)

Thanks Porl

Yes it is a great fridge,can't beat the ruggerdness of it,no fancy spring base needed,no thermal bag.Just sits in the back of the tray keeping cool (sometimes too cool)No power consumption probs.Wouldnt like to buy one brand new,quite expensive,We brought 2nd hand with 1 yr warranty still on it for $800.

Might have to seek fridgie tec,see what he can do

is it a electronic thermostat? (thermistor)

if a preset thermistor type it may need recalibration...(if possible)

if not thermistor type get a fridgie to fit new

either way lots of scenarios but!... and what you want?

incidnetly are you loading the fridge up or just running as beer fridge with only 1/2 dozen cans in it......if so no load can cause freeze ups of very little produce....

a fridge requires an "off" cycle time and uses the product as a storage bank to give this "off" time.

if you dont understand let me know
