  • Australias first fridge.

    This cooler was one of Australias first cabinet coolers.

    Can be used with coal out of a fire , line the inner wall
    with coals , wet them down , and sit your cooler in the
    breeze.

      Camping coolers use the same method today, with a water absorbent material on the outside covered with perforated aluminum and plastic inside,

      Good for keeping your beer cool Bruce.

    Re: refco condensate pumps.

    Ever thought of using "Aspen" pumps. I've found they have a good range of pumps for different applications.

    Samsung rf4287hars - lost refrigerant

    I am trying to fix a Samsung rf4287hars french door fridge. It lost the refrigerant, the low side pressure was negative, I added some refrigerant (R 134a)

    You could try Javac as they are exclusive distributors of Refco Products. I have no connection with them, just found their advert.

    Re: refco condensate pumps.

    Thanks for that, will try pumping it into a bucket above reservoir.
    also there seems to be a lot of pulsing in the plastic hose unless well clipped.
