I need a new turbo axial fan for my engel 39ltr. It is a 24vdc fan. Does anyone know who stocks parts and possibly what speed the fan is as I can get a few different models from RS components in Bris.

sparkyray,
The Mini Fridge Repair man out at Helidon is an authorised Engel service agent, and seems to be very knowledgeable about such things....
You may wish to give him a buzz on 4697 6666 ..

Its not a DC fan. Its a 24V AC fan. I searched high and low and couldn't find one in any of the electronics places.

Ended up buying one from the local Engel agent - cost about $55.

Thanks but that is interesting. Mine is definitely 24volt dc fan marked with the solid and dotted dc symbol. The measured voltage is 18vdc. The fan is connected to a circuit board that has a rectifier which is supplied by 2 blue wires which has an ac supply.
Mine is model G4

hehe
I just had a look at the dud fan from my F series. You are right, and I am wrong..... 24V DC 0.15Amp
Jamicon Model JF0825S2HN

I think I got confused with my early model engel - I needed to make up a small circuit to add a 12V fan:

Thanks for the link. Does this mean that the compresser works on 18vac? This matches the measurement that I took. I can't understand why they would fit a 24v fan and run it on 18 v when it would be better to fit a 12v fan and run it throuh a voltage regulater as on the webste instructions. Pity I can't find exploded view of fridge and wiring diag.

The old and new compressors are different. Not sure what series you have, but I measured mine a couple of months ago.
My old 39litre B-series compressor runs at 21V AC.
My late model F-series with turbofan runs at about 35V AC.

That wiring diagram for the 12V fan works on the old 39l fridges. I'm not sure whether it will on the new fridges because of the higher voltage.

I have just had the same problem with the fan in my Engel combi between the freezer and fridge compartment and the local Engel service agent got me a price, it only comes as a complete assembly (dividing wall, thermostat and fan) $117, he even laughed, its just a crap Chinese computer fan but it is hard to source. I have my IT guy tracking down a suitable replacement I will let you know when I find one.

Regards David
