Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Frigoboat Fridge Model # and Gasket

Derick,

I think the under seat fridge freezer may have the exact components except the evaporator as the upright fridge.

Eric,

Yes,

I did the same thing with shimming the gasket.

All,

(I actually think my problem is having the door miss-adjusted for a while and drawing the door tight with the latch. I think this deformed the gasket. When the door is properly aligned the magnet should pull the door against the frame and the latch should only be necessary when the boat is actually moving. That latch has some adjustment also. Because time and bad adjustments have deformed the gasket, I need to start with a new magnetic gasket.

Bill,

I was able to shim parts of the gasket in the lip of the gasket.

Yes, Eric.

When I was adjusting the door using a dollar bill, I could only get about 80% to seal...I could not get it all.

In fairness, I think the best way to adjust the door is with the refrigerator laying on its back and all 6 hinge screws loose...center the door, then tighten the 6 screws. I have not tried that, but I believe that may solve the issue. If not, when I have it out I'll make note of the model number and see if a magnetic gasket is available.

I will let you and everyone else know here.

Hi Bill,

Please let me know what you find as I also need to replace the seal.

My HVAC guy showed me a trick. When you close something that has a seal. Put a dollar bill, between the seal and the mating surface. If you can pull the bill out easily you have a seal leak.

Derick,

Thanks for that. I know that number designates everything that is a mechanical ir electrical part in the refrigerator. It is the number for the kit consisting of compressor, evaporator, and condenser with cooling fan. It may also be the number for the cabinet...I'll check it out.

Bill,

 

My Frigoboat model number on top of the fan housing says: AV 35 F

 

Are you looking for a different number (e.g. on the compressor)?
