Recently I read an article in the forum on a device that restricts 12 volt fridge starting time to twice per hour. I have lost the details and can't find it in the archives, can anyone recall where it was?
ThanksThe Ghost

Tony if you are in the least bit handy you can fit a secondary thermostat internally to stop the fan coming on until the gas coming into the condensor reaches 45c

Radio Spares flog a suitable switch which cuts in at 50deg, drops out at 35deg, part no. 228-2557, cost about $7. Nice and small, bolts to a flat surface.
Some hobby electronics places flog a similar switch but it works the other way; cuts out at 50deg.

Thanks guys for the responses I will fix it with that. Col, it is a 54 litre bushboy made in Melbourne with a danfos compressor had it for 7 years had some problems with the danfos early but they replaced the unit no problems and generally been very happy with it. Cutting down running time would be a great when staying in one place for a whileThe Ghost

Tony, check the thermostat module if it's not an electronic type. Apart from the temp knob, there may be two small adjustments in the back of it; temp calibration and hysteresis. The hysteresis setting will extend or contract the temp range it cuts in/out at. This will extend the cycle period.
Even if it's an electronic module, there may be similar adjustments.
Just a thought....
