    Fridge was working great for 2-3 weeks ..... now its not... Ugggg
    The Green Light is on, with AC and/or DC power but still not cold or even a hint of getting cold. I found a trouble shooting manual and if I did it correctly it is telling me the "Transformer" is bad. Made a few phone calls and found out that the Fridge is Obsolete after 20 years in the boat(LOL) and they no longer make or have any parts for it.... The good news is they have a direct replacement for the Fridge for the Low Price of $1249.90

    The Boat sat for over a year so I guess I'll work thru the issues.

    Nova Kool R2600 is a replacement. Isotherm and Vitrifrigo have them too. Quieter, less power consumption. 2.4cu ft vs yours a 1.9.
