Mine new cables look to be about 7-8mm which replaced the old 4mm (positive only).

This is testing my electronics knowledge a bit, but having 13v at the fridge might not always mean that the wiring can handle 7 or 8 amps. I would assume the voltage would drop under load (when the compressor is running) which is when all these tests should be done, but it may simply be that a poor connection somewhere is limiting the max current to maybe 3 amps, therefore an error shows on the fridge. Someone else might be able to explain this a bit better...

I've got a mate who had exactly the same symptoms. Upgraded wiring and plug. Still shows the error lamp. Tried the fridge in another car, still showed the error lamp (this being a car which also runs the same model Waeco without any probs.).

Was told by Waeco tech that polyfuse was the problem. Fortunately still under warranty - replaced free of charge. Works well now!

Just wondering if an inverter would have the same problem as they are fused anyway

PS Engle's are crap

I have had an Engel for 5 Years,in fact 40L and never had any issues with my Engel Fridge , worked a treat at Cape york , on the other hand my mate with a Toymota has a Waeco and his is on his 2nd Waeco replacement from new !!!

Ok, tests today have shown:

holding 12.54v under load (compressor running) with engine not running.
holding 13v with engine running, same load.
Got to 13.84v with engine running for 20mins or so
Compressor cutting in and out and the red light flashing.
Works great on 240v

Im taking it down on Monday to see about getting it fixed under warrenty even though I dont have my proof of purchase that they are asking for but it is only 2 years old and has been great until this.

If they wont fix it under warrenty then I shall buy an inverter for the weekend and then work out fixing it after that.

If the red light is flasing on the Waeco then its not getting enough power.

Mine did that when I first installed my dual battery system until I ran the earth for the dual battery system to the chassis and not a panel.


Disco owner everyone I have talked about with engles said that had trouble with them but like you I also know people that had problems with the waeco but my unit is 4 years old now and has not missed a beat

Or the poly fuse is stuffed.......

Has anyone got a schmatic of the electronics on the CF 50 with the LED readout?

I think Ive found what the poly fuse is (kinda looks like a tiny pizo buzzer about the size of a 5c piece) but Im not sure so I need either the schematic or a componant break down of whats on the board to suss it out and then I might be able to tell Bulldog what I need
