  • 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: Daikin mono bloc low temperature

    It could be reduced water flow or potentially an air bubble causing reduced flow. if the system works fine when set at 40degC, there may be insufficient

    Re: Whrilpool k20 overfilling

    Pretty sure there is a restrictor in the correct valve.

    Thanks for the replies.

    Ranger1 - My condenser TD is already at a designed 5kTd so with a 43 deg ambient I do not have many options to reduce

    Re: Whrilpool k20 overfilling

    That's my thinking,swap the valve with the one from the redundant machine.
