12V Everchill not cooling flashing

Hi,

I have the 11cf 12V compressor fridge made by Everchill. Plugged into shore power. Freezer is at 0F which is great, and I can hear the fan and compressor spin. The fridge got down to 40F and is now back up to 55F with the temp setting on 3 and flashing. I checked the voltage at the fridge fuse and itís steady at 13.6V.

Outside temp got up to 80 today and the trailer is exposed to direct sunlight. This is a brand new 2022 Wolf Pup Trailer. I have read that a flashing light means not enough current getting to the fridge, but i have never seen the voltage dip below 13V.

Any thoughts?

Welcome to the forum its a great place to get your questions answered. Where are you testing the voltage at? I would recommend you test it at the compressor connections. JMHO

Update, currently on a 1 week trip in BC. Temps are mid 50s to high 60s. Fridge is running on battery the entire time and everything is perfect. No flashing lights, fridge and freezer super cold. This means that this fridge in its current configuration is allergic to anything 70F or higher on the ambient temp. Next step will be to install some fans around the enclosure.

A fridge allergic to temps above 70F is not normal. It's a brand new rig under warranty and you need to get it fixed before the warranty runs out. You might want to make an appointment at your dealer now... just in case you've got to wait 2 or 3 months for an appointment.

12V Everchill flashing

So we were camping in Winchester VA this past weekend, temps in the 90s. Freezer kept the klondike bars solid but the fridge was flashing on setting 4.

Then I read the fine print and held the power button in for 10 seconds, turned it off. Then held it again to turn on. Started with setting 3 and got the solid light. let it sit for a few hours and moved it to setting 4.

Had no issues after that.

We always try to get the stuff cold before it goes in but this time we had 2 gallons of water that was ambient when it went in.
