Engel MRF40 Eclipse 38 litre fridge

Just returned from a three week trip away on which our new fridge was used in our four wheel drive as a back for the caravan fridge. As expected it performed faultlessly. I have no doubt that this fridge will give good service just as our smaller Engel has done, and is still doing, after 35 years. Would not consider any other brand . The service from Snowys was top rate.

great product and a great price to match

MR40F eclipse 38L fridge and freezer with cover is a great product,good size.We are travelling around Oz in a caravan,fridge is a good size for additional storage.
The guys at Snowys were very helpful and price was cheapest anywhere.

Robust, Reliable and value for money.

Mine is 10 years old. Freezes from room temp no problems.
Had many hours bouncing along corrugated tracks in the back of my ute and just doesn't give up.
Simple analogue dial type thermostat so doesn't trip out every time you get a power fluctuation.

Best value fridge freezer for traveller

Had my MR40F since 2008, cover 40,000 kms around Aus, and never missed a beat, used in a camper van, camper trailer, back of the 4WD and now in the Winnebago. Chills quickly and ticks over at around 2amps an hour even in 40 plus temps.

Magic engel

Rented 1 in the Kimbleys & it was so impressive I bought my own. Snowys had the best deal - cheapest price with free delivery & it works as well as everyone said it would. Ran for 3 days off 50AH AGM battery - could have gone longer & cold as.

Battery protection1 answer

Hello! Does the Engel MR40F have any form of car battery protection or is there a gadget you can buy to monitor low voltage? Is the low voltage protection ( as in Waeco ) actually for benefit of car or fridge? Thank you. Helene

- Klemzig(1 month ago)

G'day Helene, 

The Engel MR40F Eclipse 38L Fridge Freezer doesn't come with any sort of car battery protection, I'm sorry to say. As for whether or not battery protection is beneficial for your car or fridge. It's mostly beneficial for your car as it stops your battery from running dry. Engel may stock some sort of alert mechanism for low voltage but there's nothing that we stock, unfortunately.

Interior light1 answer

Does the unit have an interior light at all?

- Pakenham(2 months ago)

G'day Bec,

Unfortunately, the Engel Eclipse range doesn't have an interior light feature.

Solar panel1 answer

Hi, Can you hook the Engel up to solar panels, etc.?

- Maylands(3 months ago)

G'day Julie,

Great question. You can use certain solar panels to power your Engel Fridge, but they must be part of a bigger set up with a battery. It's not possible to plug a solar panel directly into a fridge. To understand the specifics of what type of solar panel and battery you'll need, feel free to give our Customer Support team a call on 1300 914 007 and they can talk you through your options.

G'day Jason,

We're expecting more Engel MR40F Eclipse 38L Fridge Freezer stock this week.

Alternatively, if you're in a hurry, you're most welcome to give us a call on 1300 914 007 and our team can look into this for you over the phone.

Trabsit bag1 answer

Is the cover an engel transit bag?

- Brisbane(9 months ago)

G'day Barry,

Yes it sure is - just to note that in case you weren't aware, the fridges are only available as an in store pick up only item, as freighting presents too many damage issues.   

- Snowys(9 months ago)

Do you mean by in store only that you dont mail this fridge out even though the ad says free delivery.2 answers

- NEWCASTLE, NSW(1 year ago)

G’day Gary, at the moment we’re working really hard to find a way to safely deliver fridges and other in-store-only items for the near future. For now, our range of fridges is on our website just to let people know that they are available to purchase in store.

- Snowys(1 year ago)

Hi Gary, it's been a long time coming, and it's most likely you have already sorted out a fridge for yourself, but just in case I wanted to come back and let you know that we have started shipping our fridges Australia wide, all at our everyday low prices. I apologise for the inconvenience previously caused here.

- Snowys(7 months ago)

Do you have the fridge slide hold down kit for this fridge? 1 answer

I think the part number is ECLKIT If yes what is the price?

- PORT SORELL, TAS(1 year ago)
Hi Peter, we don't carry the kit you refer to but can order one in. I can only go by recommended retail price at the moment which is around $45.00, but we would need to consider freight costs for this to be posted to you. Do you have a local Engel supplier who may be able to help you out, it could make things a little quicker. Let us know if you want Snowys to follow this up by giving us a call on 1300 914 007.

Can you freeze in this Fridge eg frozen ice packs for first aid?1 answer

- LOWER MITCHAM, SA(1 year ago)
Hi Rex, Good question! You can think of these fridge/freezers a bit like your normal household fridges, but just more portable. The Engel range can be used as either a fridge or a freezer and can freeze items from room temperature. Though you can imagine it will be working a little harder to freeze items from room temperature, rather than keeping things frozen which are transfered directly from your household fridge/freezer. So these fridge/freezers will definitely do the job of keeping your ice-packs frozen for when you need them most!
