When your portable car refrigerator is not used for a long time and you leave it unused, you may be concerned about its health. For this reason, when your car refrigerator is not in use, it should be well maintained so that it can be activated directly in the next use and not cause any malfunctions when it is idle. So, how should the 12V/24V portable car refrigerator be maintained and stored when it is not used?

    • After completely removing the food in the car refrigerator, unplug the power supply of the refrigerator, open the refrigerator door and defrost it after the ice has melted. Do not use sharp tools to defrost, otherwise the aluminum insulation material in the refrigerator may leak.
    • Set the temperature control regulator of the refrigerator to 0 or to stop in order to ensure that the temperature controller of your portable car refrigerator works properly and to extend its service life when you will use your refrigerator.
    • The freezing point inside the refrigerator itself is very low, so you don't have to worry about freezing and put the refrigerator in a higher temperature place.
    • Cover the refrigerator door seal with paper to prevent the door seal from sticking to the cabinet. If it will not be used for a long time, you can also choose to apply a layer of lime powder.
    • To prevent the compressor from dragging the roller, it is recommended to move it in parallel when moving the refrigerator. It is recommended to be placed in a ventilated and dry place and avoid direct sunlight.
    • It is recommended that you do not cover your car refrigerator with a plastic sheet when not in use, as the water vapor in the refrigerator is not easy to disperse and may cause corrosion of electrical components or corrosion of metal components.
