Refrigerator

Postby Charlie King » Mon Oct 19, 2015 1:03 pm

I have a 1994 Regal Commodore 400. The refrigerator in the salon looks like two small refrigerators side by side and run off one controller. It quit working. The repairman that looked at it says that it lost all its freon and would be best to replace it. Any ideas or assistance would be appreciated. Thanks. Charlie

21 years on a fridge isn't bad at all. You need to find out the make/model and maybe find a replacement, otherwise it will be remove the other and measure the hole and see what unit will fit in its place. They will publish the rough in measurements, so some cabinet work may be in order. I would hope others with the same model boat have come up with options as I am sure others have failed as well.
Thanks, Chris

Ditto on Chris' comments. I also hope mine lasts 21 years. My ice maker conked out at eight years.

You should measure the unit to be certain it will pass thru the cabin door. If not, have it repaired in the boat.

We had to pull parts of our dash and remove door stops and handle to get the old unit out of our 4460 when we replaced it with a drawer model. Regal was helpful with what to take apart to get the full doorway open.

Yes forgot about the door issue. They install them without the top deck, and getting them out can be a bit of a challenge. ;)
Thanks, Chris
