I'm in a remote location using an off grid propane refrigerator that is propane only. Brand is Unique (looks the same as a Crystal Cold but Canadian version) and only two years old. The burner orifice is clean, nice blue flame, ventilation is good, unit is level. Freezer works down, it''s down to about -10 C but the fridge won't cool to below about 10 degrees C unless it sits with the door closed for 3 or 4 days, then it goes down to near 0 degree C.

Hello, this is Dave. There are many sizes and model available. They are used by Amish and off grid locations. What size are you looking for?

The model i have is a Unique brand 15 cu. ft. UGP-15, cosmetically, it looks identical to a Crystal Cold CC15
