Re: Refrigeration Conversion Help
I guess that's doable, have you done anything like this before?
Also, you must be aware that the 5.7 amp rating is likely RLA, and that on startup the compressor WILL draw much more than that. A good rule of thum is near triple the run current. Granted, that spike typically lasts only a second or two at most, but the power supply MUST be able to handle it. Adding a hard start kit or booster capacitor can help a lot.
