Very good unit

published

Had ours for 3 years lots of use in camper trailer and home made van. It flashes the red light when disvonnecting if the battery supply isnt strong. Side control and plug unit is annoying if cramped, would be better at the front. Cig plug ...better to use anderson plugs. Cover is worth the money. Optional fold up stand takes up little room and saves your back
Works great

Date PurchasedJan 2014

Two units failed within a month

published

Ordered a Dometic CF-18 unit from online marketer, for use a cockpit freezer on sailboat, under helm seat and large cockpit canopy. First unit failed upon arrival. Requested a replacement and one was sent [happily]. New unit worked for 1.5 weeks, then failed. Failure description: Unit seems to start normally [soft compressor noises], then within 10 seconds, error light flashing and unit stops cooling. Measured voltage of supply battery and is above 12.6v. Failure description is the same for first and second units. Will report problem again, but no longer trust Dometic CF-18 unit.

Only recently purchased, cannot find any negative issues .its effecient &cools rapidly .i have been using it thru cigarette lighter socket in front of my hilux but will soon run a dedicated line from battery and change to anderson plug to keep voltage losse to a minimum. I will also fit a solar panel &regulator to see me thru the work day.

Great little fridge

published

I have owned the little 18 litre Waeco for about 5 years and use it mainly as a beer fridge on the back deck or when camping, it has never missed a beat, it has a high/low cut off switch and operates fine when the voltage drops below 12.

The only criticism I can make is that the power cord sticks out from the unit and is easily knocked/damaged, unlike other Waecos where the power cord is flush, I purchased flush style cord to solve the problem.

This is a good little fridge provided it is powered correctly

Do not waste money on Waeco CF-18

published

Purchased unit from on line supplier, their service was very good. Unit would not stay cold, service centre found no problem with the unit, twice. Still would not stay cold, hot beer is never good! Eventually refunded money after much communication with service centre/Waeco head office/ supplier. Waeco blamed the car dual battery, have a 45 litre engel firdge that runs on the same battery and never had a problem.

Did not stay cold. Very bad customer service from Waeco and their service agent.

CF-18 (18 L)

I can get power to the unit but nothing happens, no lights or anything; so unit not working.
Up to this point it worked fantastically.
Can’t seem to find anything obviously wrong with it.
What can I check on it please?
