  • 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: Help with a domestic fridge freezer

    Check also that the drain pipe is clear. if it is blocked with dirt, water stay in the freezer, freeze and block the air vent to the fridge side.

    Thanks for replies guys. That's a great help especially the fact that the manual shows what the resistance readings should be between N and N3 and P3

    So copper grease on ammonia, is it like anti-seize or something like that?
    Whatever the case use it sparingly.
