First and foremost, ensure that your RV fridge is powered on correctly and make sure that there is no power failure. If the problem persists after checking both the aforementioned steps, please contact your local Service Center or Furrion.
Start by checking whether the room temperature is higher than normal. You should also inspect whether your RV fridge door is ajar or has been opened frequently. Try keeping the door closed for some time and check whether this resolves the problem. If not, check whether the refrigerator has been disconnected for a prolonged period of time as this type of issue is common in such circumstances.
Check to ensure that the temperature control is set correctly and inspect whether the fridge door has been left open or has been frequently opened recently. Try keeping the door closed for some time to see if this resolves the problem. Also, check whether the door gasket is properly sealed and if your 12v RV refrigerator has been disconnected for a period of time as this issue can arise as a result of it. You should also make sure that any hot food cools down properly before storing it in the 12v cooler.
If you encounter this situation, check that the leveling legs are adjusted to a proper position. You also need to make sure that your RV fridge is placed on a flat, solid surface.
Start by checking if the temperature of the exterior refrigerator walls is much higher than the room temperature, which should be around 30 degrees Celsius. A warm surface is normal since the compressor is working to convey the heat from the interior to the exterior.
Check if the door of your 12v RV refrigerator is open or has been opened frequently. Try keeping it closed for some time and check whether this resolves the issue.
This is normal for 12v coolers in hot and humid weather.
This is the normal sound of the refrigerant circulating throughout the system. The refrigerant is used to cool the RV refrigerator.
This is normal as metal parts undergo expansion and contraction, just like hot water pipes. The sounds will decrease or dissipate as the refrigerator continues to run.
Firstly, check if your 12v RV fridge is placed on a flat surface. It is also important to inspect the gasket and see if it is dirty. Should this be the case, try cleaning it and closing the door again. You should also check whether the storage drawer is out of position and try adjusting it before attempting to close the fridge door.
The temperature control dial of your 12v cooler may be set too high. Try changing the temperature according to the instructions in the user manual. Furthermore, if you place food containing a lot of moisture directly under the cool air outlet, it will freeze easily. While this does not indicate a malfunction, try repositioning the food away from the cool air outlet.
If this occurs, ensure that your food is not stored too tightly together as this can block the flow of cool air. Spread out your food inside the refrigerator to ensure maximum performance. Another cause of this is if you have put something hot in your RV fridge or if the door is not closed properly.
Check that the drain pipe and drain hose are not clogged. If they are, clear out any blockages properly. In addition to this, make sure that the drain pan is housed properly.
In order to safeguard against condensation, there is an anti-condensation pipe that heats up the cabinet front. Be aware that a warm cabinet front does not indicate a malfunction.
Firstly, you should check whether the power cord of the 12v fridge is plugged into the RV’s power outlet properly. Next, inspect the fuse and circuits of your power supply and replace them if they are damaged. Be aware that the freezer does not operate during the automatic defrost cycle and for a short period of time when the RV refrigerator has been switched on as this helps protect the compressor.
You may need to clean the interior of the 12v fridge and check whether the odors are emanating from any food stored inside.
The following sounds are normal for 12v coolers:
● Compressor running noises
● Air movement noise from the small fan motor in the freezer compartment or other compartments
● Gurgling sounds similar to water boiling
● Popping sounds during automatic defrosting
● Clicking sounds before the compressor starts.
Unusual sounds may be due to the reasons below and you may need to take action by checking your 12v RV fridge.
● The cabinet is now level
● The back of the refrigerator is touching the wall
● Bottles or containers may have fallen or are rolling around.
It is normal to frequently hear the sound of the motor, but note that it will need to run more in the following circumstances:
● When the temperature is set colder than necessary
● When a large quantity of warm or hot food has recently been stored in the fridge
● When the temperature outside the appliance is too high
● When the doors are kept open for too long
● When the fridge has just been installed
● When it has been powered up after being switched off for a long time
You should ensure that the air outlets are not being blocked by food and also check to make sure there is sufficient ventilation in the 12v RV refrigerator. Be sure to also close the door properly. To remove the frost, please refer to the “cleaning and care” section of the user manual.
You may have left the fridge door open for too long or could be opening it too frequently. Try keeping the door closed for some time and see if that resolves the issue. Alternatively, a certain item or obstacle is prohibiting the door from closing properly. It is also important to check the placement of the 12v fridge and ensure that there is sufficient clearance at the sides, back and top. If this is a problem, take the necessary corrective measures to rectify it.
Try increasing the temperature by following the instructions in the “display controls” section of the user manual.
Check if the top of your RV fridge is tilted back by 10-15mm to allow the doors to close by themselves. Be sure to also inspect if something inside the 12v cooler is preventing the doors from closing.
The water pan, which is located at the rear bottom of the cabinet, may not be properly leveled or the draining spout, situated underneath the top of the compressor depot, may not be properly positioned to direct water into the pan. There is also a possibility that the water spout may be blocked. To fix this problem, you may need to pull the 12v refrigerator away from the wall to check the water pan and draining spout.
The LED light may be damaged. If you need to change it, refer to “replace LED lights” in the cleaning and care chapter of the user manual. Alternatively, the control system has disabled the lights due to the door being kept open for too long. Closing and reopening the door will reactivate the light in this case.
Check the door seal and, if necessary, clean the rubber gasket seal around the edges of the door using dish soap and warm water. Dirt and grime can collect here and cause the door to stick.
Electric fridges offer more consistent cooling temperatures, consume less energy and are safer than gas-powered RV fridges.
Furrion’s RV fridge with a compressor provides more cooling capacity and cools faster than other refrigerators that run on propane.
Furrion’s RV fridges can be powered by a battery or by AC115v with an AC-DC converter.
Furrion’s 10 cubic foot Arctic model uses about 1.08kWh per day.Show moreShow less
We like the extra space compared to our old absorption refrigerator. It fit right into the same space our old Dometic was in. I highly recommend taking the doors down off before attempting to bring into the RV. We did have to relocate the power to the other side, would be nice if the power connection was in the middle.
The fridge shipped freight directly from Furrion in Elkhart.
What an excellent fridge works fantastic. And reasonably priced.
I was wondering how well a Refrigerator with a 12-volt Compressor would work. It is a little noisy. The center of the freezer stays at 10 degrees. The back wall of the refrigerator will freeze anything touching it, but the center of the compartment stays at about 40 degrees. Still not used to the fact that there is so much room in it. Over all we are happy with it.
We bought this refrigerator for our off-grid cabin with expectation that it would use less juice than a conventional refrigerator. I have not hooked up any monitoring equipment to it yet but after 24 hours of use it uses only a little bit more than the 3.1 cu ft that we replaced according this morning's battery level. Went running it only draws about 8.5 amps @ 12VDC and since the cabin DC system is 24V a small 30 amp 24V to 12V converter handles it nicely.
After letting the unit sit for 24 hours (had to transport it on it's back) we powered it up yesterday and it cooled down nicely after a few hours. After "living" with it for 24 hours it seems like a nice 'fridge and so far the only thing I can say negatively about it is Furrion's opinion of what is quiet is a bit different than mine! When it is running the high velocity/capacity fan noise is quite apparent but after a while we got used to it.
