1 Safety Instructions

• Warning: Do not touch exposed cables.

• Warning: Do not use fridge if you suspect any connections could be wet.

• When using the fridge in a vehicle. please ensure the circuit being used is fused at the

• Any installation of DC power systems should be handled by a qualified professional.

• Make sure the source voltage is correct. The technical data label (page 20) has the

• Do not place any electrical devices inside the refrigerator as moisture could harm these

2. Notes On Using The Product

• Your refrigerator requires good ventilation. especially around the vents of the

• Avoid humidity: humidity inside the appliance can form frost and impair cooling. Do not

• Never clean the appliance using a hose and never submerge the unit in any liquid.

• Avoid placing your refrigerator near a heat source. This helps the refrigerator to work

• Place the refrigerator on a flat surface and away from any edges. When using the fridge

• This product is not designed for marine purposes and warranty may become void if


3. Operation

• Power: The refrigerator can be powered by a multi-voltage system utilising either 12/24

Volts or with the included 240V adaptor. The electronic module controls the compressor and has the added function of a three stage battery protection. When the input voltage drops below the minimum. the compressor will cut out; when the voltage comes back up to the cut-in value. the compressor will restart automatically.

• Battery Protection: The SECOP compressor requires approximately 11.0 Volts (12 Volt

System) or 23.0 Volts (24V System) to operate. If the voltage drops below this the fridge will stop running.

• Cable Specification: The DC cables must have a suitable cross-section for their length

(measured from the battery to the unit). according to this table:

Cable Thickness (Area) V Max Cable Length

(mm2) AWG (m) (ft) (m) (ft)

4.1 Display Panel Definitions

Large & Small Bins: Wondering which display indicates the temperature for each bin? The outline of the display indicates this. the large bin is represented by a full square. and the small bin is represented by an L shape/stepped bin shape.

Snowflakes: These indicate which bin is currently cycled on (cooling). This fridge has one compressor. meaning it will only cool one bin at a time. This is an automated process within the fridge and cannot be altered within the settings.

AMB/Ambient Temperature: This indicates the ambient temperature inside the motor compartment of the fridge.

Bluetooth: The bluetooth symbol will turn on and make an audible beep when you have successfully connected to the app. This symbol will not be illuminated unless you have successfully connected. There is no setting within the fridge that turns the bluetooth on or off.

Voltage Indicator: When running your fridge on 12V this indicates the voltage at the fridge (not at your battery). The voltage indicator on the fridge will typically be different to the reading at the battery. This is because there can be voltage drop present between your fridge and battery. This can be to do with the length and quality of your power cord. and also be influenced by the health/life of your battery. When the fridge cycles on. the voltage will typically drop and then increase again when the fridge cycles off. This feature is useful for identifying any fridge errors (such as an E1).

When running your fridge on the supplied EvaPower 240V adaptor the voltage indicator will read approximately 14.5V. as this is the rated output of the 240V adaptor.

Battery Charge: When running the fridge on 12V. this icon will indicate how much battery charge you have left. Just like the voltage indicator reading. the battery charge reading will typically drop when the fridge cycles on. and will increase again when the fridge cycles off.

If you notice the battery symbol on your fridge getting low. we recommend checking your battery voltage and putting it on charge if possible to prevent any power issues to your fridge.

When running your fridge on 240V the battery charge will indicate it’s full.

Did you know?

Just like your fridge at home. all EvaKool fridge freezers will cycle on and off. This means you will hear the fridge turn on (cycle on) and commence cooling. then once it gets down to the set temperature. it will cycle off again. Subsequently. the temperature displayed on the fridge will fluctuate by a couple of degrees from the set temperature.

The temperature shown is only an indication of the temperature inside the fridge. It is also typical to hear gurgling sounds during this process too.

There is no cause for concern. your fridge at home runs the exact same and means your fridge is running in a healthy state!

Turning one compartment on/off: If you only require cooling for a small amount of product. you can switch off either side and run just one bin/compartment.

• To turn off the large bin press the button for 3 seconds.

• To turn on the large bin press the button again for 3 seconds.

• To turn off the small bin press the button for 3 seconds.

• To turn on the small bin press the button again for 3 seconds.

5. Refrigerator Setting Recommendations To ensure maximum performance from your Down Under Series II Fridge/Freezer please follow these recommendations.

Temperature Settings This fridge can be run as a fridge/fridge. fridge/freezer or freezer/freezer. meaning either compartment can be run as a fridge or freezer. See recommendations below: Fridge: 2°C Freezer: -16°C

Down Under II 65L - Single or Dual Zone Settings The Down Under II 65L Fridge Freezer has the capability to be run as a single or dual zone fridge or freezer. See recommendations below:

Single Zone operation:

• Remove the internal divider. this

• Set the temperature: To run a fridge: have both bins

To run a freezer: have both bins

Dual Zone operation: Leave the divider in place and set a separate fridge and freezer temperature.

Max or Eco Mode Settings This setting controls the compressor speed. Max mode is typically used to quickly pull the fridge down to temperature or to assist in high ambient temperatures. whereas Eco mode will assist with conserving battery power and can be used in low ambient temperatures.

See recommendations below: Eco: Recommended for ambient temperatures of 30°C or less.

Max: Recommended for ambient temperatures of 30°C or less.



Battery Protection Mode Settings The fridge is equipped with a multi-level battery monitor that protects your vehicle battery against excessive discharging when the fridge is connected to the on-board 12V/24V supply. If the refrigerator is operated when the vehicle’s ignition is switched off. the fridge switches off automatically as soon as the supply voltage falls below a set level. The fridge will switch back on once the battery has been recharged to the restart voltage level. See recommendations below:

Battery Protection Mode

Switch-off voltage at 12V 10.1V 10.5V 11.1V

Restart voltage at 12V 10.9V 11.4V 12.4V

Switch-off voltage at 24V 21.5V 22.3V 24.3V

Restart voltage at 24V 22.7V 23.7V 25.7V

When the power to the refrigerator is supplied by the starter battery of a car. select battery mode “H”. In every other instance. EvaKool recommends using the “L” / low setting. This is safe for your auxiliary battery and will maximise how long your fridge can run off your battery on a single charge. Keep in mind. best 12V practice is to keep your battery as charged as possible to maximise its lifespan. If you wish to operate the fridge from an AC power supply. set the battery mode to “L”.

Helpful Hints

• Pre-chill your fridge before use. this can be done the night before you leave for your

• Clean your fridge regularly by following the cleaning and maintenance guide on

• Do not store any electrical equipment inside the fridge after use.

• Leave the fridge lid left ajar after use to prevent mold.
