Well I was correct. I removed the rear cover panel from my Bodega 75TWW and examined it for loose connection. I found several loose connections on the spade terminals on the circuit board. And power supply coming into the unit. The spade terminals that were used during manufacturing are very poor quality. I replaced the bad spade terminals and wiring with better new connectors. And soldered the connection at the 110 to 12 volt power supply coming into the unit. Cooler seems to be functioning okay now. I will try it for a while and see how it goes.

I have a Bodega 75TWW 80qt. Cooler. It worked fine the first year I had it. However now it keeps shutting down after running a few minutes. And the 110volt AC to 12volt DC transformer gets very hot and burns up. I have replaced it three times with the same results. And the 12 volt lighter plug doesn’t work at all. Keeps throwing code that the power is too low. Even with the vehicle running. I have even tried connecting it directly to the battery. Almost acts like a lose or poor connection internally. I don’t know. I have tried everything.

I have the model Tww95.
My question. If I accidentally turn off my power; will I lose my settings and have to reset my settings/ temperature. Is there a time limit?
Appreciate any feedback.
Thx

1 yr old 45 qt fridge is always very wet inside (side walls and bottom). Always been this way since day 1. Temp set at 38F (both sides). I think the door seal isn’t properly sealing. Guess I’ll have to reinforce the seal with some type of foam rubber. It’s not healthy to store food in this thing. Please advise (anyone).

Hi,
I plugged in my unit 6 hours ago. The control panel keeps beeping and resetting every 10 seconds. I cannot raise or lower the temperature setting – the screen goes blank every time it beeps. Can you please help? Thanks.

My bodega cooler is acting up. My fridge side is set to 37 and it’s at that but my freezer side is set to -4 and it’s at 37?

Hello, I bought this cooler to store my breast milk (both frozen stash and freshly pumped milk as I exclusively pump to feed my baby) on our 15 day drive across the country to our new home. I’ve been quite happy with it until today when the fridge side seems to be doing something odd. Instead of displaying the temperature like it was before it’s displaying random numbers and I can’t control the temperature up and down like I could before. It also seems to have the Bluetooth thing lit up, I’m not sure if that is contributing and if so how to go about turning that off. Thank you so much for your help.
