Old Engel fridge rescue


This is a quick video about an old Engel fridge, staring it for the first time in 25 years, seeing how it runs, checking and comparing the current draw and getting a 240v solution without the 240 volt cord.

If any one has one or finds one and is wondering. They draw about double a modern version.

Amazing isnt it. not only do they draw twice the current, the evap plate only goes half way to the floor, so they cycle for longer, meaning power consumption goes way up.

I note that even today, they still use those cheap arsed, bit of pipe bent in a vice handle, that only supports load in the upward direction. And people use them for tiedowns :eek:
