Are you sure that the RM7401 isn't fixable? Or have you definitely decided on a new one? Please get back to me and I can assist you further here. And are those measurements in centimeters?
Expert:  Randall replied 8 months ago.
The specs on the RM8501 are 821x525x569 so it is slightly deeper, but should fit.

Did you want it to have an ambient temp switch? Not sure what you meant by "climate rating" here.
