Hi Soraya,

 

Looking @ your hull number (being very close to mine) I have been told that if you have the small top loading fridge/freezer there are no struts and you have to hold it open yourself

Does GARULFO have the wide or narrow top?

Hi Teun;

 

We have the small door for our top loading fridge in the galley and ours does have the struts. Ours also is getting weak and need replacing. So, input on this would also be appreciated if anyone has the part number.

 

Happy Sailing;

Hello
 
I guess we have the narrow one like Kokomo with a single strut on RHS (evaporator under worktop to the left of the opening). 
 
It stopped working recently not long after I read about its replacement on a related fridge thread. 
Rather heavy to hold if you trying to load at the same time...
 
Thanks

Hi Aty & Mohammad,

 

Strange – as I was told the small door 54 didn’t have a strut when I was looking to get a strut as the frigging door/cover fell on my finger and I can assure you that HURTS and gives you a black nail for several weeks. Mine doesn’t have any markings or signs of ever a strut(s) being installed.

 

You have 2 struts: 1 on each side?

 

OK – then I also like to have this info on the struts and will install.

Hi Teun;

 

Sorry about your finger. I can see how it would be dangerous to try to open the door in a rolling seaway, hold it open while you grab stuff. We just have one strut. Attached please find a picture.

Mohammad,

I wish it was something professional like a rolling sea but, in all honesty, we were on a mooring in NOUMEA and Bill ROUSE said something to me which really stunned/upset me that I dropped the lid on my finger :(.

Thanks for pic.

Hi Paul,
Thanks for sharing those details.
I wonder if the lid of the top loading fridge/freezer being heavier, would not require a stronger strut. Any thoughts?
Thanks
