Off Grid Home Forums Technical Discussion Chest freezer to fridge conversion-it works! Re: Chest freezer to fridge conversion-it works!


We pulled a propane fridge out of an old travel trailer, unfortunately the ammonia leaked out so it’s not any good. We have a possibility of getting a practically new propane fridge for free, it also runs on electricity (12 volt and 110), I’m not holding my breath, but it is a possibility. At any rate, we have been running the chest freezer fridge conversion for almost a week now, with several partly cloudy days with no problems at all. It does get condensation inside, I put a towel in the bottom, and I still need to get some wire or plastic baskets to make it easier to get the food in and out. It runs about 1 minute per cycle, and so far, it hasn’t run out the power in our system. I’m very happy with it so far. :)
