Refrigerator start surge
I know I've read what I'm looking for somewhere in this forum before but I can't find it. I have a small chest freezer I converted to a chest fridge. I've been using it at home and have it down to about a 175wh a day. I tested the inrush current with my fluke and it showed 6.7amp. I want to take it out to my off grid place but I just have a suresine inverter. I think it was Wayne that modified a few of them to work with his suresine but I can remember exactly what was involved. I obviously will need a start capacitor. My plan was to get a Supco RC0410 and see if that softens the start surge enough. If I recall there was a bit more to it then simply adding a start cap though. I figured i would see if someone had a working recipe that would save me some time and experimenting.
