Fridgie needed.

Post by scottmac » Tue May 14, 2013 2:48 pm

Any of you FFFers out there a Fridgie or know of one in the Palmy area? My 500l chest freezer is no longer getting down to temperature. I have bypassed the thermostat, to no avail. It's cooling bet not freezing, so may need regassing, or else the compressors knackered I guess.

I need to get it fixed ASAP or else I'll get a new one. Sick of buying ice, and throwing fish frames away! :banghead:

Will pay cash or :cheers: please pm me or phone 0400026739. Cheers, Scotty.

Unless there is obvious oil near compressor, I would say internal gas leak. turn it into a beer esky and buy a new freezer. refrigerant is over $100/KG these days plus around $85/Hr labour. the fact that it has been running short of gas may also cause the compressor to fail in the near future. IMO new freezer.

Cheers mate. Oh well, might have to bite the bullet then and buy a new one. Unless anyone's got one for sale?

Just bought a new one. If anyone wants the old one for an esky or to try to fix it, come and get it for a slab of xxxx gold stubbies. Good condition, no rust, just not freezing!Pm or call number in original post.
