Stirling JS05 secrets

Anybody with a Stirling JS05 that can tell me what the secret to happiness is?

Bought one when I thought my conventional unit had given up. Turned out there was still plenty of life still in my Aldler Barbour. But I thought that since I had already dropped the bundle on the Stirling unit, that I would be so clever and have both units cool my insulated box. So I chopped a hold in my counter top and cut a duct thru the insulation and into the box. Major job.

I set the Stirling unit in place and waited for the magic. Got the noise. Got condensation collected in the plastic tray. Felt a little cold air below the unit. But it did nothing to lower the box temp, all the while drawing amps that were surprisingly... not low. Not high, but on more than off. I let the AB draw down the box temp and then asked the Stirling unit to maintain the temp in the cool evening hours. I figured I was being so clever. But so far I am just out the bucks and a bunch of work. But I do have a nice big hole in my counter top to be ashamed of.
