Sometimes when switching on, the compressor gives a short squeek then runs for a few seconds and stops. After a minute or so it will try again and do same thing. I will try your power supply test procedure when next at the boat but in the meantime your advise would be appreciated.

When turned on my fridge works fine. It brings the temp. down and the ice box freezes. After approx 6 to 12 hours the motor cycles on for a few moments and turns off then on and off. it stays like this causing the fridge to defrost.

My compressor will start and run for about 20 minutes and will then show 3 flashes on the diagnostic LED. The fan will start and run for about one minute then stop and start again.
I find if I leave the compressor turned off for say a day and turn it on, it will start and run for about 20 minutes again.
When the compressor is running it quickly chills the refrigerator.

Although the battery setting on the control panel is set to 'LOW' the red light flashes after a while and the fridge ceases to cool. I have 35amp cable between the leisure battery (12v) and the power socket where the cable run is only 1m in length. My CF-35 and CCF-18 run ok on this set up and the fridge runs ok on mains supply.

I have a 12v Coolzone fridge freezer that no longer cools. The compresser gets warm and it makes the usual low hum. I have connected up the diagnostic light, but that did not flash any error codes. This all started after it was disconnected when I was having some internal renovation work done to the boat. Leaving the fridge on overnight everything inside just gets warm!

The Problem: While cooling to below freezing temperatures for temporary storage of frozen food the fridge abruptly stopped cooling as the temperature passed through +1C and has not worked since.

Initially the ice box would over ice, then contents in fridge will start to ice up or freeze. After defrosting and cleaning for umteenth time motor motor is reluctant to restart and when it does it will only work for a relatively erratic short time period.
