I installed a Dutch Aire absorption cooling unit in my fridge last year. It works great.

I installed an ARP fridge defend at the same time which will run a day or two and then cut the unit off. I did change the ARP setting for the Dutch Aire unit, and per the ARP device, it isn't overheating so there seems to be something I'm missing in the set up. I exchanged a few emails with ARP last year but they say read the manual. I found the manual, for me, to be unclear as to what and why a setting needs to be changed. So many say it works great on their Norcold or Dometic cooling unit. I'm feeling like I wasted a bunch of money on this.

I was wondering if anyone has one working with a Dutch Aire cooling unit and might share their settings. ( this is on a N641 fridge )

Thanks,


Joe & Evelyn

The instructions for my ARP device were NOT well written. Also, I couldn't get the device to change settings. I learned the hard way that a "TAP" of a button was not enough. I had to "HOLD" the button to make changes.

I agree. Poorly written instructions, and lots of "refer to something or someplace online." That's not handy when boondocking.

I am glad I have the unit, and offhand I would recommend checking to see if maybe your heat sensor is too close to the heat source or not firmly against the metal.
