    The fridge has replaced an old one in our caravan located out 50K from town. We have had the fridge for just over 3 weeks and the temperature here is averaging 40 degrees and the fridge is keeping cool at the 4 degree setting. It is a little noisy when working hard, but bearable.

    Shopping Experience

    I was impressed with the assistance at initial question time and was certainly more than happy with the experience. They are certainly on our list of people to deal with.

    bought this fridge to go in a campervan we bought as the other one wasn't big enough. Couldn't be happier loads of room in fridge and plenty of room in freezer, we can happily camp without power with enough fresh food for two weeks or more.

    Shopping Experience

    couldn't be happier, ordered the fridge only took three days to arrive very quick, Thanks.

Product Description

Currently FREE with the Evakool Platinum 146L Upright Fridge is an Evakool Installation Frame (RRP $109)

Evakool Fridge Frame

Aluminum mounting kit to suit Evakool upright fridge / freezers, 25mm. This kit is designed to neatly secure your fridge in the cabinetry of your RV / Caravan.

Product Description:

Evakool Platinum 146 Litre 12/24 Volt Fridge designed for Recreational Vehicles, with 2yr warranty. Evakool’s Platinum Upright RV Fridge series delivers exceptional performance. The Platinum range of stylish, upright fridge freezers have been designed by drawing on Evakool's years of experience and extensive knowledge of 12 volt refrigeration.

Evakool has developed a range of upright fridge freezers specially designed to provide maximum cooling capacity in our harsh Australian environment. In fact, the Evakool upright Platinum Fridge range can operate in temperatures up to and above 45 degrees celsius! The insulation thickness of their walls and doors, along with the externally mounted condensor design makes this range a popular choice for recreational vehicles heading in to hotter climates. 

Whilst the Platinum 12/24 Volt Upright Fridge series is perfect for your Recreational Vehicle, it is also worth noting that the range is free standing, meaning that it does not have to be built-in to cabinetry like other RV fridges - this also makes the Evakool Platinum range an appealing option for 'Off-grid' living requiring 12/24 volt appliances. 

WHY CHOOSE PLATINUM UPRIGHT CARAVAN FRIDGE FREEZERS?

Product Faqs

Ask a Question

  • Q:Can you please tell me the recess required for the EvaKool platinum upright 146 litre fridge freezer and the 175 litre fridge freezer? Regards Val
    A:

    Hi Val, 

    The external dimensions of the EvaKool platinum upright 146 litre fridge freezer are:
    Dimensions (LxWxH mm) 1095mm x 590mm x 585mm (HxWxD)

    The external Dimensions of the Evakool Platinum 175 Litre 12/24 Volt Fridge are:
    Dimensions (LxWxH mm) 1275mm x 590mm x 585mm (HxWxD)

    The Product Manual states that you should leave 100 - 150mm at the back of the fridge for proper ventilation.

    regards

    The Team @ My Generator 

  • Q:What plug is used for 12v operation? (or is it hard wired?) Also, how does it run on 240v power?
    A:

    Hi John, the unit comes with a 2 position terminal for hardwiring the fridge to DC power. 

    To run the fridge from 240 Volt mains power, you will need use a Power Adaptor (see Accessory List on product page) - these are popular for when AC mains power is available and you want to run 12 / 24 Volt DC applainces.

    Many thanks. 

  • Q:How much solar & battery power is needed to run this unit? Does the fridge draw up to 12amps every time it starts up?
    A:

    If this is for a caravan, Evakool recommend that you use 300 watts or more of solar panels and 200AH or more of battery power. If you are using the fridge for an off grid solar application, you should use 400 watts of solar and a 300AH battery bank.

    Yes, the fridge does draw more power when it first starts and will be close to that 12Amp mark. As the refrigerant cools, the power draw will be closer to 10Amps.

  • Q:Hi, I’m looking at an Evakool upright fridge for our van. What are the differences between the Evakool Platinum models and the Evakool Elite models?
    A:

    Hi Stewart, great question. Evakool released their new Elite Fridge range in April 2018, whereas their Platinum Fridge models have been around for a few years and have been very popular. 

    The success of the Platinum range has been largely due to Evakool's focus on ensuring these RV fridges will still perform at maximum cooling capacity even in the hottest of temperatures. The insulation thickness of their walls and doors, along with the externally mounted condenser design makes this range a popular choice for recreational vehicles heading in to hotter climates. 

     With the newer Elite range, Evakool have 'up-specced' the fridge offering for the RV market;

    - Elite models come with install mounting frame included 

    - Elite models have a drawer freezer at the bottom, and freezer tub is removable

    - In the 2 larger Elite models (EL145 and EL208) they come with 2 compressors allowing you to turn off either of the compressors if not required ,thereby reducing power draw. Reduced demand on each compressor when operating in higher ambient temperatures, as opposed to having  one compressor to cool both the fridge and freezer. This provides confidence that if travelling and one compressor was to fail that you can still use the other compartment. Because the cabinet is so well insulated the compartment for which the compressor has failed can still be used as an icebox / cooler.

    - Like the Platinum range, the Elite range has exceptional performance in high ambient temps as both the fridge and freezer have a dedicated compressor. 

    ...The above points are some of the main Specification differences between the two ranges. There are other features for each model (e.g. size, colour, freezer capacity, power draw etc.) which you can view on the product pages for each individual model.  Both ranges use the universally renowned Secop (Danfoss) compressor, come with a 2 year warranty and are supported by national service agent networks.

    Overall, we have no hesitation in recommending Evakool Upright RV 12/24V DC Fridges (both the Platinum and Elite ranges): they are a great option designed for: Motor Homes, Caravans, Camper Trailers, Boats and other recreational vehicles...they can also be used within 'off grid' homes relying on 12 volt and solar power. 

     

     

  • Q:What type of compressor is used in the Evakool Upright Fridge models? And, what are the benefits of these? I want a Caravan Fridge that will perform well in the heat up north. Thanks.
    A:

    Hi There, all of the Evakool Upright models (both the Platinum and Elite range) use the Secop PBC 2.5 (formally Danfoss BD50).

    Note that the two larger Elite models actually use 2 x compressors. See separate Q&A regarding the reasoning behind having 2 compressors and why this might be beneficial for RV owners.

    Re the actual compressor mode - Not too many people know, that the Secop compressor is a 4 speed compressor. At its slowest speed, 2000RPM, it’s rated at 42 Watts of cooling and at high speed, 3500RPM, it’s rated at 71.6Watts.

    Most of the power consumed by any fridge is on start up, as the motor is trying to turn over; the amps can rise to as high as 10 amps then settle as it comes up to speed. Evakool have programmed the compressor to soft start, drawing the least amount of amps as possible. Most manufacturers set their fridges at 1 speed (normally high speed) resulting in very high amp draw on each start up, adding greatly to the overall power consumption.

    Once the fridge has soft started then the electronics will automatically select the right speeds to handle the load given. E.g. In winter where there is very little heat load it may only use the slower less power consuming speeds to achieve temperature , saving even more power than if it was pre-set at one high speed.

  • Q:What type of condensers are used in the Evakool Elite Fridge models?
    A:

    There are two types of condensers commonly used today:

    Passive:
    These are the black pipes you see commonly on the back of the refrigerator. The purpose of the condenser is to expel the heat that has been collected from inside the cabinet via the refrigerant. Passive condensers rely on natural air convection (warm air rises) to move air over the wire covered coil and this removes the heat. The pros and cons of this condenser include:

         Pros: no moving parts. Doesn’t need cleaning.
         Cons: not as efficient in expelling its heat in high ambient temperatures.

    Fan Cooled:
    This type of condenser is far more efficient than passive as there is a fan drawing air through the condenser, removing more heat and of course quicker. The pros and cons of this condenser include:

         Pros: super efficient. Very small, normally the same size as the fan.
         Cons: needs cleaning. If blocked with dust or the fan fails, the fridge will stop working all together.

    What Evakool has done on the ELITE is to combine the two! They have used the fan that cools the compressor electronics, to pre-cool a section of the condenser before it goes into the passive section. The result is that the fridge can operate more efficiently in hotter temperatures, it doesn’t need cleaning and if the fan ever fails, the fridge will continue to operate.

  • Q:Why is the fault light on my Evakool Fridge flashing?
    A:

    The fault light on the display board is a self diagnostic feature built into the Secop compressor; depending on the amount of flashes it will tell you what is wrong with the fridge

    Error type:

    1 Flash - Battery protection cut-out (The voltage is outside the cut-out setting).

    2 Flahes - Fan over-current cut-out (The fan loads the electronic unit with more than 1Apeak).

    3 Flashes - Motor start error (The rotor is blocked or the differential pres-sure in the refrigeration system is too high (>5 bar)).

    4 Flashes- Minimum motor speed errors (If the refrigeration system is too heavily loaded, the motor cannot maintain minimum speed at approximately 1,850 rpm).

    5 Flashes - Thermal cut-out of electronic unit (If the refrigeration system has been too heavily loaded, or if the ambient temperature is high, the electronic unit will run too hot).







  • Q:Does my Evakool Fridge come with circuit breakers? Thanks.
    A:

    Hi there,

    Yes, each system has been fitted with a 15Amp circuit breaker to protect the circuit and electronics.
