    Replaced 3 way 60L fridge in our Adria caravan. Although it took a bit of work to modify the space it fitted in perfectly and was able to add the trim from old fridge to the door. It is just so much better in operation and keeps food at correct temperature. And so much more usable space.
    Should have done this years ago.

    Had an old Electrolux 3 way caravan fridge that was over greedy on 12 Volt and as such poor performance on a trip.. Replaced it with a Dometic CRX80 and am greatly impressed by the quick cool down and miserly draw on 12 volts . It fitted in the old spot with a minor modification to the height above cabinet. I am now seriously Off Grid and a happy camper.

Product Faqs

Ask a Question

  • Q:Does the fridge auto select between 12v/24v?
    A:

    Hi - Yes it does!

    Thank you :)

  • Q:The manual refers to a red/black cable to connect to the battery. But all I can find is a white/black cable?
    A:
    Yes it is a white/black cable. Simply follow the cable back to the compressor model to see which is labelled as negative and which is positive.
     
    For any Waeco technical support simply call 1800 212 121.
     
    Thanks! 
  • Q:Hi, what compressor is used in the Waeco CoolMatic CR fridges?
    A:

    Hi Jake;  the Waeco CoolMatic CR range of fridges use a Secop compressor. 

    In Summer 2016, Dometic Waeco will release a newer version of these models known as the Waeco CoolMatic CRX range, and these fridges use a Waeco compressor. These newer models are available in the same size, and offer a couple of additional benefits such as removable freezer compartment, slightly reduced noise, and slightly better energy efficiency.  


  • Q:Will this fridge tolerate operating in a semi-closed space? E.g. Mounted to the side wall of the cockipit on a boat.
    A:

    Hi, it is advised that there is sufficient ventilation around the refrigerator, especially behind it near the cooling unit. 

    The fridge does not come with mounting brackets. However, there are four screw holes inside the base of the fridge that allows you to fix the fridge to the floor.

    Hope that helps - cheers, Steve

  • Q:With regards to the Dometic Waeco Upright fridge models. Can I choose which side of the door the hinge goes on?
    A:

    Yes.

    Some models require the customer to choose a hinge position prior to delivery. You will notice a Left Or Right Hand hinge option on the product page.

    With all the other models you will be supplied with a hinge conversion kit. The door will come with the hinge on the right hand side as standard. You can easily change it over using the kit. Feel free to view the Installation instructions on the product page for each model.

  • Q:Are the Waeco CRX Fridges Tropical Rated?
    A:

    Hi there, yes is the answer. The Waeco CoolMatic CRX range is classified as having a Climatic Class of 'T'. 

    Fridges graded 'T' (which stands for Tropical) are designed and rated to work up to 43 degrees C. Thanks.

  • Q:I was told the Waeco CRX has removable freezer compartments- is that correct for all models?
    A:

    Hi Sam, in the CRX range, only the CRX50, CRX65, and the CRX80 models have a removable freezer compartment. 

    The two larger models in the ranf (CRX110 and CRX1140) do not have a removable freezer. Thanks

  • Q:Can this CRX model be run as fridge only with the freezer compartment removed?
    A:

    Hi Ty, yes freezer compartment of the CRX50, CRX65 and CRX80 can be removed. This means you can choose between having: a fridge, freezer or both at the same time! Thank you.

  • Q:Do you need to disconnect the battery if connecting to 240v mains supply?
    A:

    Hi there - No you don't, 240v takes priority.

    Thanks, Steve

  • Q:Can you please advise the depth or cut out requirement without the door? I only want the door protruding so require this information before making a final decision. Regards Timothy
    A:

    Hi Timothy, the depth without the door for this model is 475mm. Thank you

  • Q:The opening in my camper is 530wide x 440deep x 735hi. What do you suggest to attach the crx80 in this space between existing cabinets?
    A:

    Hi, on the product page under the main product images there is an Accessories List which includes a Standard Frame and Installation Frame to suit the fitting of the CRX80. Thanks.  

  • Q:Is the frame (Standard or Flush frame) required as part of installing the CRX fridge?
    A:

    Hi there, the answer is No. The frame is not required as part of the install. The frame is an option to help with presentation within your cabinetry; it tidies up the fridge perimeter in either a flush style or standard style (fridge door sits out proud). So the frame is just an option. 

    The fridge is fixed to your vehicle typically by the screw holes in the floor and there are side screw holes as well. Thanks.   

     

  • Q:Can you confirm which Dometic Waeco CRX models have the LAC (Low Ambient Control) (winter kit) fitted as standard? The CRX product manual states only CRX 110 & 140 models have this fitted.
    A:

    Hi there, the Winter Kit/LAC function is built into the Dometic Waeco CRX110 & CRX140 models only. These two CRX models have a permanent freezer (the 3 smaller CRX models have a removeable freezer). The LAC winter mode ensures optimum operation at ambient temperature of below 16°C.

    There is no LAC function inbuilt to the CRX80/65/50 models...nor can a 'winter kit' be fitted to these 3 smaller models.

    The Dometic CRX units are tropical rated fridges, which the specified operating temperature is 18-43°C. They will still maintain a normal fridge compartment temperature when the ambient is lower than 18°C, but will cycle off for longer periods, and depending on stock level the freezer temp may rise...Hint: if the freezer is stocked fully with dense products, then the temp will hold over for longer in the off cycle. 

    Many thanks

  • Q:Is the price the same for Left Hand hinge? How do I order?
    A:

    Hi, the Dometic Waeco CRX range of upright RV fridges come with variable door mounts & hinges, so they can either be left hand hinge, or right hand hinge. They come delivered right hinged as standard, but you can easily change them over to a left hand hinge. So there is no price difference when it comes to hinge side, it is the same unit and you can choose what side hinge you want to use. 

    In terms of placing an order, you can either add it to the shopping cart on the website, and then fill in your delivery and payment details online...or, you can call us on 1300 400 122 and place an order over the phone with our team. Many thanks :)

  • Q:We currently have an old Waeco CR model refrigerator in our camper. How is the performance and offering of the newer CRX models in comparison?
    A:

    Hi there, the latest versions of the Dometic Waeco Compressor fridge-freezers are known as the 'CRX' range, which replace the old CR models.  The new CRX range has the same physical dimensions as the previous CR models, but slightly improved performance including;  greater temperature control, reduced noise, and better energy efficiency. More specifically:

    • Custom built Dometic Waeco compressor (Variable speed compressor) replaces Secop (Danfoss) compressor from previous models
    • Improvement in energy consumption (-10% to -30%)
    • Tropical rated:  designed and rated to work up to 43 degrees C
    • Interior Temperature Range:  Freezer -15 °C to -5 °C, Fresh: 3 °C to 12 °C, rapid cooling (without freezer): min. -6 °C ± 2 °C
    Our staff use them in their personal RV's and our customers have provided excellent feedback. We would not hesitate in recommending them. Many thanks. 
  • Q:At what voltage will the fridge shut down?
    A:

    Hi, The refrigerator can be operated with a 12 V or a 24 V DC voltage supply.  To protect the battery, the refrigerator switches off automatically if the voltage is insufficient:

    12V cut-off voltage:  10.4 Volts

    24V cut-off voltage:  22.8 Volts

  • Q:The manual for the latest CRX models mentions that you need a MPS 35 Rectifier (listed as an accessory) if you plan on connecting to 12v and 240v, is this correct and where are they available from and the cost?
    A:

    Hi James, great question. The latest version of the Dometic CRX Manuals do make reference to an MPS Rectifier as an accessory... which is a little confusing because you definitely do NOT need this rectifier to run any of the Dometic CRX models on AC (240 Volt) mains power. All of the Dometic CRX models can be operated directly on a 12/24V DC or 240V AC power source. 

    The reason it is mentioned in the manual is that it is a universal manual, intended for a world wide audience...and there are some versions of the CRX models sold in other parts of the world (outside Australia) which are slightly different than the models in Australia. 

    In summary;  the latest versions of the Dometic Waeco CRX Compressor RV Fridges that we sell here in Australia do NOT need any sort of adaptor or rectifier to be able to run on either DC or AC power. Many thanks. 

     

  • Q:** Dometic Troubleshooting Tip ** - Is the Fuse In the Cable Blown?
    A:

    There is a fuse in the plug of most Dometic fridge cables.  The fuse can be accessed by removing the single screw.  Replace the fuse (with the same rating as original fuse) and reassemble.  This is not a common problem, but it can happen and should be the firwt thing to check.

  • Q:Hi, I have just tried to connect my fridge through the A.C. power and power button inside doesn’t seem to work / isn’t showing power / no lights / not working. We have testing the power in the cables and it shows 12v running from the battery. Can you ple
    A:

    Hi Hilary,

    The only powerbutton is on the inside left of the fridge, which should simply require pressing to turn on.

    If this does not work, we would recommend testing the fridge on mains power to determine if it is just a 12V issue.

    If it is, we would recommend contacting Dometic on 1800 21 21 21 for service.

  • Q:Hi, what is the height of the door itself? My canopy door opening is 623mm high so wondering if this model will fit
    A:

    Hi There,

    The total height of the fridge is 640mm.

    We unfortunately do not have the exact door measurment sorry.

  • Q:Is there a FULL 3 year warranty Cheers
    A:

    Hi Al,

    The Dometic CRX range come with a 3 year manufacturers warranty. 

    All Dometic warranty information can be found by clicking here.

  • Q:Hi there,Can the fridge be mounted through the base? Ie fixings on the bottom on a 4wd canopy rather than through the side walls?
    A:

    Hi Chris,

    There are no mounting holes in the base of the fridge,

    The fridges require mounting through the side walls.

  • Q:** Dometic Troubleshooting Tip ** - Try the fridge on 240 V AC mains power
    A:

    If it works normally on 240 v mains power, then the problem is almost certainly with your vehicle wiring, not the fridge.

  • Q:** Dometic Troubleshooting Tip ** - Have you cut or extended the cable supplied?
    A:

    Unless you do this correctly you will prevent your fridge from getting enough voltage to operate correctly.  The cable provided is the minimum thickness required for that length.

  • Q:What size wiring do I need to use to run from my new fridge to the fuse box or battery?
    A:
    The gauge of wiring will depend on the required overall length of the cable and the voltage of your system. Refer to table below to calculate the gauge (cross section) of your DC cabling.
