Quick Overview

Thetford T1090, 12V Compressor Fridge 80L, 3 year warranty

Product Description

Thetford T1090, 12V Compressor Fridge 80L, 3 year warranty. Thetford’s T1090 Compressor fridge offers very powerful, but efficient cooling on 12V and still gives you the great service and a quality that you have come to expect from Thetford.


  • Compact 80L fridge
  • 12V only
  • Strong but quiet Secop compressor
  • No external vents required – no dust!
  • Very energy efficient: 4amp on day mode and 2amp on night mode
  • Environmentally conscious refrigerant R600A

Powerful cooling and no vents required
The compact (80L) fridge has a strong 12V compressor, which results in a powerful cooling performance. The standard mode is highly rated with the Subtropical Climate class, which guarantees an average cabinet temperature below 4˚C.

The optimal installation is the T1090 at the top, at eye level, offering ergonomic use while taking food in or out the refrigerator. The interior features a design containing two vegetable bins, food retainers to keep your food in place while driving, and bottle retainers in the door bins. A unique back venting system increases the cooling performance thanks to the separation of hot and cold air. The ventilation is integrated which means that external vents are not required.

Green power
Thetford cares about the Australian environment and that is why we used natural refrigerant R600A as cooling liquid in the T1090. Within the market, Thetford are one of the first to make this change to a more environmental conscious refrigerant.

Efficient power
The power consumption is economical and gives you a lot freedom and less need to visit a pitch or campsite. The T1090 offers a standard day mode and a special night mode. The standard day mode has an energy consumption of 0,45 KwH per 24 hours, with 0,35 KwH per 24 hours for the night mode. Efficiency at its finest!

Silent power
Thetford’s T1090 is a very quiet compressor refrigerator. The standard noise level reaches 32 dB(A) (average bedroom noise level is 30-40 db(A)). If you want to reduce the noise level, you can activate the night mode. The noise level drops with 3 decibel to 29 dB(A).


  • There is no exterior door skin. The door is silver coloured coated foam, with black plastic trim. A laminate panel or ply can be fitted to the door to match your decor. (The product images show an example of a black panel fitted, which is not supplied).
  • The refrigerator door can be easily converted from left to right. 
  • Average energy consumption at an ambient temperature of 25 degrees.
  • This fridge runs on 12 volt DC power. To run the fridge from 240 Volt mains power, you will need use a Power Adaptor - these are popular for when AC mains power (240 Volt) is available and you want to run 12 Volt DC appliances. Adaptor options avaliable in accessories list above.
NOTE: This product has changed size from T1090 90L to T1090 80L.

Installation Refer to the Product Manual / Installation Guide for installation instructions from the manufacturer.

As a general rule: The more ventilation you have, the better.

Product Faqs

Ask a Question

  • Q:Is it okay to defrost my fridge/freezer using a hair dryer, heat gun or boiling water?

    No, the sudden change in temperature will cause the inner surface of the fridge/freezer to distort. This will not be covered under warranty.

  • Q:The blue fault light flashes on the display.

    The blue LED is a fault diagnosis tool. It should be accompanied by a ‘spanner’ symbol and a number. Please refer to owner’s manual for a list of diagnostic codes.

  • Q:How do I clean my fridge?

    Cleaning tips
    • A good time to clean your refrigerator is straight after you have defrosted it.
    • Clean the refrigerator with a soft cloth and mild detergent.
    • Dust the refrigerator with a soft, moistened cloth.
    • Use a brush or soft cloth once a year to remove any dust from the condenser at the inside of the refrigerator.

    Important - Do not use soap or aggressive detergents that are abrasive or soda-based. The removable interior components of the refrigerator are not dishwasher safe.

  • Q:How do I defrost my refrigerator?

    Frost will gradually build up on the condenser of the refrigerator. You should defrost the refrigerator as soon as the frost layer is about 3 mm thick. Frost reduces the refrigerating capacity and life of your refrigerator.

    • Remove the ice cube tray and all food.
    • Switch off the refrigerator.
    • Leave the refrigerator door open.
    • Place dry towels in the refrigerator to absorb the water.
    • Place trays containing hot water in the freezer compartment.
    • After defrosting (when the freezer compartment and condenser are frost-free), remove the towels and the water trays and use a cloth to dry off the refrigerator.
    • Switch the refrigerator on again.

    • Do not use force or sharp objects to remove frost.
    • Do not try to accelerate defrosting by using a hairdryer for example.

  • Q:How do I check if my refrigerator door closes properly?

    If the door is not closed properly, frost will form in the refrigerator. Close the door with a piece of paper between the door and the refrigerator, to determine whether the door closes properly. Pull at the piece of paper. If you feel resistance, the refrigerator door closes properly. If you feel no resistance, the door does not close properly.

    Perform this test regularly on all four sides of the refrigerator door. If you find that the door does not close properly, check whether the door locking mechanism keeps the door properly shut.
