does anyone know how to use this refrigerator?

Im trying to fire up this fridge that runs on propane. The freezer seems to be working fine but the fridge doesnt seem to be getting cold, maybe i need to leave it on longer. Also is this control really how you adjust temperature? Its just the plastic clip thats attached to the metal things and a tube.Click image for larger version

Usually a minimum of 24 hours to get things running and properly cooled.

Has it ever worked to your satisfaction?

And yes....
That plastic sleeve is how you make temperature adjustments. There is a wire attached to it right?

Lots of folks say 24 hours to get cold but my experience over 4 different rigs is that is should be getting pretty cold in the fresh food section in 6-8 hours. Maybe 10-12 in really hot weather.


Again we ask, how long has yours been on?


Slide the plastic clip all the way up for coldest temp in the FF section. Make sure the little thermister which is held by the clip has not slid out or almost out the bottom of the clip slider.

X2

And I see from the pic of your front panel that the fridge is ON (Auto). This will allow it to automatically switch to propane once you unplug from shore power (provided your battery is fully charged and the propane is turned on). To make it run on propane only, push the gas button in. The "check" light will come on & stay on until the propane burner lights.

Yup, 10 to 12 hours and both sections are at temp as long as the doors weren't constantly being opened.

Our freezer always gets cold long before the refrigerator.

Yup. A bit longer. And.... stop peeking. Every time you open those doors, you lose most of your refrigeration.

I got a wireless thermometer for my fridge so I don't have to open the door to check on how it's doing. They are cheap on ebay or amazon.

Our is in the South where it's hot. I leave it 24 hours freezer cools down faster as it is smaller. Only cold things added then.

Another question and you have not replied to anyone trying to help you with the first question.

Is the first question resolved as far as youíre concerned? It would be nice to know before we chase off on another question.

I probably sound rude, donít mean to be but it happens a lot where someone will ask for help and never come back to say anything helped them.

Let it run for 24 hours, measure temp, if not cold enough then maybe time to discuss fans to other options. If to cold, slide down, wait and repeat as necessary..
