TO OPERATE
1.

The cooling performance is similar to that of a household fridge (NOT a freezer).

2.

If the unit is operated continuously, it will lower the temperature inside to about 16C below that of
the surrounding air.

3.

The best performance will be obtained if the unit is loaded with food and drinks that are already
cold.

4.

For best cold retention after disconnection, keep the lid tightly closed.

ADVICE
1.

DO NOT block the air flow.


The unit must have a clear flow of air to remove excess heat in order to work effectively.
For best results:
Dont operate in a confined space such as a car boot.
Dont leave the unit in a sealed car or boot whilst in use.

2.

Shade the unit from direct sunlight and leave windows slightly open to allow for air circulation.

3.

The unit is designed for operation in vehicles with a negative earth. If your vehicle has a positive
earth terminal, a competent electrician must rewire the cigarette lighter end of the adaptor.

4.

Ice-cream should not be refrozen after storage in the unit.

5.

Performance will be impaired by the addition of any substantial amount of items at room
temperature.

6.

When not in use the unit must be stored open to prevent mould growth.

Fault

Possible cause

Suggested remedy

Your cooler does not function


(DC plug is inserted, LED on
the plug does not glow).

There is no voltage flowing


from the 12V socket
(cigarette lighter) in your vehicle.

The ignition must be switched on


in most vehicles for voltage to
flow at the cigarette lighter.

Your cooler does not function


(AC plug is inserted).

No voltage present in the AC


voltage socket.

Try using another plug socket.

Your cooler does not cool


(plug is inserted, LED on the
DC plug glows).

The inner fan or the cooling


element is defective.

This can only be repaired by an


authorized customer services
unit.

The cigarette lighter socket is


dirty. This results in a poor
electrical contact.

If the plug of your cooler


becomes very warm in the 12V
cigarette lighter socket, either
the socket is not clean or the
plug has not been inserted
correctly into the socket.
Remove dirt from the plug and/
or socket using a non metallic
tool.

The ignition is on and the


cooler is not working or keeps
switching off
(DC Plug is inserted, LED on
the plug is not glowing or not
glowing continuously)

The plug has not been inserted


properly into the socket, poor
electrical contact.

Extract plug gently from the


socket and reinsert firmly.
Repeat the operation until the
proper position is found, the plug
is aligned firmly into the socket.

The fuse of the 12V plug has


blown.

Replace the fuse (8A) in the 12V


plug.(unscrew the tip)

The vehicle fuse has blown.

Replace the vehicle's 12V


socket fuse (usually 15A).
Please refer to the operating
manual of your vehicle.

There is water inside the cooler

Moisture in the air, trapped


inside the cooler, is condensed
by the low temperature.

This is not a product fault, the


inner of the cooler is not
ventilated. Dry the condense
water periodically.

There is ice formation near the


inner ventilator

Moisture in the air, trapped


inside the cooler, is condensed
to water and freezes in contact

This is not a product fault.


Switch the unit off and let the
ice melt, remove gently, check

with the ventilator. Ice formation


can block the ventilator and
damage the unit.
