My first thought would be the "Emergency Override" button which will keep it running

cheers

If its reading 60deg & running continously & freezing, it will be the thermistor faulty.

I agree dbish. My Waeco 50 did exactly the same. About a $130 repair.

Like Teejay, my Waeco 50 had the exact problem you speak off Drummo. It then went to not working at all. $150 repair in Perth which only took about 30 minutes. Seems like a common problem as repairer diagnosed it over the phone and confirmed problem through testing. Other than that issue, fridge has been and is good as gold.

Cheers

Just recently had my CF80 do the same, the guys at Waeco made short work of the repair (replacing the thermistor) they also did a mod which involves the thermistor being placed in a tube which protects it from being damaged by ice buildup and also means it can be changed easily through the front grill rather than having to take the thing apart to get it out, apparently the new CF80's have this mod from the factory.

Fortunately Waeco have a workshop and refurbished/seconds outlet here on the Gold Coast which is where I purchased the CF80 a few years ago, they also fixed it next day after they opened the workshop for me when I arrived just after closing which was great because we were going on a trip that weekend.

Cheers,

Roy..

I just had my CF50 repaired for a similar issue. Cause was due to moisture/water in the control panel. There is a small hairline gap along the control panel cover where it screws into the fridge body. Ours started playing up immediately after having water drip onto this gap (while it rained). This was the only time it had ever gotten wet and started displaying wrong temperature and freezing everything within a day or two. Repaired (under warranty).
