Hi, Sorry I did write this up with photos, and it would seem that it never posted? I dont know why. I had lost the originals but just found a couple of photos in delete bin.
I needed to fix the thermostat near an existing hole made to wire up a little digital thermomenter [Lidle internal external digital thermometer].
So I fixed the thermostat just as shown above Fridge. The temperature sensor was fitted against the back of the cooler plate using the original clamp that held the old original sensor.
I have also added a small computer fan which circulates air past the cooler plate, Its a 12 volt fan with a series resistor to reduce voltage to approx 7 volts as the fan doesnt need to run hard. Fan and resistor Takes about 80milliamps. Currently thermostat set to switch at +2 degc and 3 deg C hysterisis with a 3 minute start delay time. Firdge runs at average cycle time 10 minutes internal temperature of 6-7 deg C with 25 degree ambient in boat.
Regards
Perry
