    Fridge arrived when I was too busy to "play" with it properly...

    Plugged it in and turned it to 3 (out of 5)

    This morning the water and the Pepsi wasn't cold....

    It was all frozen solid...

    think you also have to get the right sort .some friends had a tropical version and had trouble with the settings , they thought they had the bees knees the other years in maroc .but in fact it had to be changed on return to uk .the wrong one had been sent out.

    What the hell are you playing about at "Water and Pepsi". What a waste of good fridge space. Get some beer in there man and take plenty of no notice what the guest says.

    I am so naive and innocent that I do not understand what Dixon is on about....

    (and I am shocked that you do Carol... Does Eddie understand too?)

    Hi JJ
    I suppose you have now realised why it is called a fridge/freezer:Wink:
    Maybe you had better keep the Engel for ICE :BigGrin:
    If you can't get used to it, we know a man who can:Wink:
    Have you worked out how much power it uses ?
    Enjoy the company of your guest

    I am certain... no mistake... they sent me the fridge/freezer I ordered. I had thought that the freezer would be separate but it is just one space and you decide how cold you want that space to be between +5C and -18C



    Won't be using in the UK so shouldn't matter!



    Good point well put...

    You are right... think we might just make ice in the Engel and load that into the Electrolux to help it out...

    Not done any power consumtion tests yet... just moved it into the Hymer and the gauge shows 3.9 amp draw (but don't think it is very accurate.)

    JJ :Cool:

    It maybe a touch pricey but it was packed with large sized bubble wrap which when squeezed to "pop" makes a really loud bang and feels great!
