    Engel Fridge power connector

    Hiya,
    I've picked up an old Engle 39L fridge model MRFT-540A that looks like it may work but I don't have a power cord.
    I'm looking for the pinout information and was wondering if anyone has that info or if anyone has one of these with a power cord (either 240v or 12V), a pic of the pin end of the cord would help out heaps! I can post pics of the fridge and power socket if needed.
    Cheers.
    John

    Hey Bluey, thanks for that.
    I managed to find the actual pinout of the connector if anyone is interested, on the exploroz forum:

    I've connected a "bodged" 240v cord and she runs! I'm waiting to see if the thermostat works then I'll try the 12V side.
    Thanks for looking.

    Yeah, it's pretty hard to kill one of those Engels. A mate has had one for over 30 years, never re gassed or anything, and it still goes.
    Now that you have it running on 240V, try running it up and down the temperature scale and see if it works right down to the coldest setting.
