Hello, there are no repair manuals on any of those older units, they all use astandard components and the refrigeration service tradesman know quite will how to work on them.

I am 75 now and have worked on dozens if not hundreds of them.. I can help you with it you like. I probably uses R-12 refrigerant, there are drop in replacement refrigerants you can use. If you need to replace the compressor it has to made with *mineral oil in it, and compatible with R12a the R-12 replacement.


Let me know, we can go from there.
