Refrigerator/freezer not cooling.

Has anyone had any issue with their refrigerator and freezer not cooling? Solutions? The fan motor runs. First time out and not happy camper!!

Better provide more info. What do you have for RV and also type of fridge: gas/ electric or residential electric, and model number.

This a 12 volt DC supplied refrigerator. You have to make sure your battery voltage is higher than 12 volts. Check battery voltage with multimeter when fridge is running. When you are hook up to shore power, does fridge operates properly?

OK so I would still check voltage at battery with fridge running and shore power hooked up. This will prove if converter is charging battery properly. Voltage should probably be 12.7 volts and higher if all is OK.

Hope someone else with similar fridge can help you. We don't see many people with 12 volt only fridge on forum. Did you pre-cool fridge for 8 hours before putting any food in it? If no, then it might just take more time to freeze/cool.

RV fridges, especially those operating on 12VDC are much less efficient that your home fridge. They cool slowly and recover from opening and having non chilled items added. If possible avoid adding large quantities of warm items and leaving the door open for for long periods of time.

Ok, Iíll ask the obvious questions.

Has this fridge EVER worked properly?
Has it worked on battery AND electric?
Is this the first time for the fridge this camping season?
How long was it plugged in or supposedly running on gas before you determined it was not working?
