Hi Josh.When the fridge is running, it gets warm on tye outside surface, so that tells me, that the refrigerant is
circulating just behind the surface. There is no condensor "grill" on the back to remove the heat. The condensor is built into the insulation. My 12 volt compressor has its own cooling fan on a condensor "grill", so if I could block the condensor system on the fridge, it would be the best. Thats why I ask for a scematic wiev of the refrigerant tubing.
My freezer is oversized, so I want to use a spil over fan to cool down the Frigidaire fridge and then only use the 12 volt system sometimes when needed. The hole can only be drilled on the right side, seen from the front. It doesnt matter where excactly.
The damper system will work OK between the freezer and the fridge and I have to make a hole for the return air. But I want the freezer compartment in the Frigidaire to be cold too, for cold drinks. That is where the 12 volt compressor comes in. I dont think the damper/spill over system can maintain both, or can it? I guess the best place to "take" the cold air, is from the bottom of the freezer.
If possible, I will drill a hole from the fre3ezer into the fridge freezer compartment. Then another hole between the freezer compartment to the fridge compartme4nt and back into the boat freezer. Does that sound OK?Is a 120 volt and a 12 volt thermostat the same?
you could use either one. 12v or 120v. are you ok with the temp of both compartments being the same? if so then you could just put a small 12 fan between top and bottom and keep a good flow. then add a small hole to return back into the refrigerator.
you could always use the damper as a plan b if the compressor set up fails.
Thew Damper system you mentioned, is that the same as a thermostat regulated spil-over fan?
You still here? If your having trouble log off and back on again.
I am still here.
So - drilling two holes on the right side will cut the condenser tubes? How and where can I block them, so I only use the evaporator plates connected to the 12 volt compressor??
OK, that is clear. But I still want to connect my 12 volt compressor and the Frigidaire confuse me, because the suction side, the biggest tube, runs up in the insulation together with the capillar tube which is splitting up to a small filter and then back up in the insulation. The small tube comes back again into the compressor. To explain this, it would be nice with a schematic drawing of the tube system. It seems, that if I connect the 12 volt to the Frigidaire, the system runs backward.
