Some months ago i saw a post on here about a small electronic doofer that would turn a freezer into a chiller. I bought one on ebay an Elitech ST1000 and it sat on the shelf in my workshop generally being ignored for the last 6 months. I am just away to start some building work, to make a new office so the freezer ended up in a corner of the workshop, this said electronic doofer on top of it.
Yesterday i shot a buck, so decided to see if the thingy would work, and, after much head scratching and a google search to see how the wiring was meant to go - the instructions with it are rubbish, i managed to get it working. It really is excellent and it is fast, dropping the temperature from 15 degrees to 5 in a very short time, perhaps 5 minutes i guess.
I am not planning to hang deer for long, more to keep them cool and fly safe for a day or two until i have time to butcher them. This unit basically turns the freezer on and off - with a safety delay of 3-10 minutes, keeping the temperature at a pre determined setting - i have chosen 5 degrees.
I am sure there is something i am missing, it is too easy, but as far as i can see and for short duration this appears to be ideal. We are not currently planning to put in a fan, though may if this would be a big help.
Total cost, under £15, time to wire up, and hour of head scratching and then 2 minutes.
