G'day all , just wondering how long the waeco cf 60 should take to freeze down to -18 when connected to 240v power in the house at around 23-24 ambient temp (fridge empty). The first one I purchased a couple of weeks ago was faulty & would not freeze below -9 degrees even if it ran all night (empty) ,took it back & was given another one. This one gets down to -18 ,just curious how long it should take when fridge is empty & also how long would it take if it was half full of drink bottles at the same ambient temp as above.
Thanks for any info.

I have a 60 and I have no problems, typically overnight however in all honesty I only chill it down to - 8..... and I always chill it from mains first.

I am happy to give it a go and time it for you... let me know

Cheers Wayne, would be good to compare. I have never had one before so Im not sure how long they should take.
Currently doing all sorts of experiments with this fridge, have been running it today at 0c all day half full of drinks on the raps 36 battery & still going strong,plenty of juice still left in the battery so far 10 hrs & still going.

When I bought my CF50 2 years ago, I did the same tests as you to gauge the fridge's performance. I used the Waeco external temp monitor thingy with the probe set in the middle of the fridge, and a 2 litre bottle of water in the bottom of the fridge. Ran on 240 volt.
When I first fired it up the ambient temp was 26 degrees.
After 1 hour it was down to -12 degrees.
After 2 hours it was down to -20 degrees.
After 3 hours it was down to -24 degrees, and stayed at that temp overnight. Good enough for me.

I have a CF60AC - it runs off a 60AMP Hour AGM with a xantrex battery monitor on it which counts the amp hours it uses.

Just in case anyone wants to know - with it filled with 36 cans of softdrink - once already cooled with the thermostat on ZERO - it uses a total of 13.8 Amp hour over 24 hours with an ambient temp of 29 degree's without the protective bag from Waeco.

With the bag - in the same conditions, it used 11.1 Amp hours.

This is using Anderson connectors to connec it to the battery - not the standard weaco plug.
