Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Freezer temperature


Colin - ex SV Island Pearl
 

Hi Alexandre
We have 2 x 260w solar panels mounted on one of Riza's new Amel Davits which run in series through a Tracer 4215BN MPPT controller with MT50 display. This gives us between 5amps to max 20amps (normally over 10amps) charge at approx 27.7volts for much of daylight hours. What a difference it has made and now our last job is to find suitable LED globes for all internal lights and deck level Nav lights. Masthead is already LED.
Cheers
Colin

Good morning Colin,

Glad you are happy with the your new solar system!!!

Could you please describe it to me?
What panel, controller, etc. are you using?

Thanks in advance, sincerely, Alexandre

Interesting how many times
someone posts an item here just when we have a similar
issue. After running our fridge and two underbunk freezers
for 2 months on shore power, and being so happy with our new
solar system, we decided to trial leaving all three units on
for a few weeks with the boat charger unplugged as it
appeared we had far more energy coming in from the sun than
was required. This was all fine and batteries remained 100%
for a week or so, but  then after a spell of four really
rainy days with absolutely no sun I returned and found the
one of the under bunk freezers no longer at freezer temp.

My
immediate thought was that the compressor had gone but now
after Kent's post re shutting down with lower voltage I
will check that possibility first.

How cold does your freezer get
?Our freezer with the thermostat set on
7 only gets to -14.5 deg C. Our ambient temperature is about
30 deg C.My frig mechanic claims that
the frigomatic unit is borderline for the 80 litre freezer
we have and suggests we replace it with a larger compressor
and plate.....$1500....Interested to
hear others views on
