Like all bits of machinery the Defender heater has an optimum temperatutre at which it will operate. With the Defender heater it is when the weather is around a comfortable 18 to 25 degrees. This is good Land Rover engineering design and if the Defender was fitted with a LR fridge it would operate when the weather is between 3 and -5 degrees.

Funny you should say that as I had to pay well over the odds for an aftermarket fridge to mimic that operating window Cool

Did it leave an oil patch where you left it?

No - well I don't think so - but it does let in a howling gale of freezing cold air around it's sides...
