Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Freezer Insulation

Danny and Yvonne SIMMS

Thanks Bill,

I shall search on. Hardly use the aircon, haven't used the clothes washer in a while, done a fairly good first look at the under sink piping but there is a slight leak in the water system somewhere as the pump isn't holding pressure like it used to. That could be anywhere but the accumulation suggests a central point.

Thanks again and wishing you and Judy all the best for the year ahead.

Most common sources in order are:
  1. Cracked condensation plastic collection box on Salon AC
  2. Partially clogged AC condensation drain
  3. Cracked galley sink spray handle near the hose connection
  4. Partially clogged Clothes Washer drain
  5. Leaking fresh water connection to the clothes washer
  6. Leaking drain under the sink
  7. Leaking freshwater pipes/hoses under the sink

Hi Duane,

from the comments by my frig tech your experience is far more common than mine, he indicated I was all but unique so I am the lucky one. I gathered from him that often, mostly it was bilge water sloshing around that causes the problem and I have never had water sloshing around under my freezer.........until today. Just goes to show, never say never. Fresh water at that. I have yet to discover the source but I suspect a very slow accumulation. My water tank has not been full (the breather exits to this area) and I cant see any leaks in the fresh water system under the sink.This area connects. Haven't been using the aircon much, just a bit of running to keep them functioning. Freezer water cooling feed line?

I shall find it!!

Thanks for the reply.  I can't imagine another reason.  The insulation is soaked around and above that insulation bottom to wall joint, and the insulation was pourous and cracked.  It wasn't wet above the joint very far.  If it were the seal leaking cold air then the wet would start at the top.

I guess I'm just lucky.
