Where can I connect my new freezer?
« on: March 31 2024, 20:55 »
I was thinking of connecting the new portable freezer to the positive and negative poles of the Danfoss compressor of the fixed fridge, please look at the picture.

Is it a good or a bad option, any suggestions?

Thx

Bad option - if both are running at the same time, you could have sufficient voltage drop in the supply wiring to cause one or both to switch off.  Better to wire the freezer to a dedicated socket with adequate wiring.

Thanks Tiger79, I thought that the + and - it was a socket where I could take the current from, but now I understand that it's were the compressor get the current from the battery.
