What size inverter are you using? 1000Watts? 600Watts?????
Battery(s) fully charged?
What is the Amp Hour (Ah) rating on your BATTER(s)? How many batteries do you have? Have you killed or drained your battery(s) before (below 10.5VDC)? How many times? How far is the fridge from the inverter? What size wire do you have between the inverter and the battery(s).
All important information...
You may want to purchase a Kill-A-Watt meter and run the fridge through it to see how much power it uses on 110VAC and convert those numbers to 12VDC power required to run the fridge.
