Blimey, never knew that.....

We just got a couple of ice creams out of the freezer part, and although they were still frozen, you could see that they had thawed and re-frozen in a funny shape...

Still tasted good though.... I'll start the diet again tomorrow....

To have a separate control of the freezer needs a freezer thermostat and a separate cooling circuit for the freezer. It markets as a premium product, but the engineering is cheap.

I think fridges in garages is a different problem to do with the choice of refrigerant gas.

Guys, I have been battling this problem with my Merc Sprinter RV in which I fitted a new CR110 during 2014.

This unit functioned without issue until mid 18 when problems such as those mentioned below in the opening post started appearing ~

The electronic / mechanical thermostat switch 'pod' on my Dometic Waeco CR110 compressor fridge has failed twice now. I'm now on my third pod in 4/5 years.

In an attempt to fix the issue I did the following -
1) Upgraded the wiring.
2) Replaced 2 x 110Ah batteries.
3) Replaced the thermostat with a genuine part (£75).
4) Upgraded the cooling with an additional fan and improved inlet / exhaust.

I still have the fault, I have no red LED flashes to indicate a particular fault and am reluctant to simply blindly swap out the controller or thermostat again.

One point I did note and this has also been mentioned in posts, the small LED PCB which connects the controller and thermostat has corrosion on the components, although these still appear to function correctly (bench test with a meter).

So I still have a duff fridge, has anyone found a solution to this issue?

Thanks,

Andy
