ERROR CODE Error type can be read out on the control display Error Code Thermostat failure Err 7 (If the NTC thermistor is shortcircuit or has no connection). Err 6 Thermal cut-out of electronic unit (If the refrigeration system has been too heavily loaded, or if the ambient tempreature is high, the electronic unit will run too hot). Err 5 Minimum motor speed error (If the refrigeration system is too heavily loaded, the motor cannot maintain minimum speed at approximately 1,850 rpm).
CONNECTING TO A BATTERY Your DC fridge/freezer can run off a single 12V or 24V power supply. When connecting to a 12V battery, ensure that the supplied connection wires are used. Connect the positive wire (red) to the positive terminal on the battery and the negative wire (black) to the negative terminal on the battery. Please ensure that your deep cycle battery is fully charged and is properly connected to the Unique Portable Solar Panel system (UGP-100WSPB and/or UGP-120WSP) or a power generator.
USING PORTABLE GENERATORS It is important that the correct generator is used with your UGP120L1 W portable fridge/freezer. An incorrect generator may result in reduced performance or damage to your appliance which may void your appliance’s warranty. If connecting directly to an AC generator, ensure that only a digital or inverter type generator is used. These provide a more reliable and constant 110V AC output and are specifically designed to power electronic and other power sensitive appliances.
TIPS AND SUGGESTIONS • Fresh and frozen foods should not be stored together. Frozen surfaces can cause frost damage on fresh foods which can then lead to spoilage. It is best to put an insulating layer between these goods or to organize them into separate compartments. • When the appliance is being set at 0˚C / 32˚F or lower, do not store glass bottles or liquids such as beer, wine, juices or soft drinks in the unit as they may freeze and shatter.
