Maintenance/Repair Details: Replacement of fridge - following some concerns with the old Domestic RM4200 3 way fridge it was decided to finally replace the whole unit rather than pay from a reconditioning service, removal proved the right decision had been made! A few preparation had to be sorted first, selection of replacement, type of fridge, size & cost. We selected an Isotherm Elegance 65L 12/240v model so first job was to remove and blank off the old gas pipe. 240v power point was already in situ so the next job was to run 12v power from battery bay to fridge location.

Come change over day and removal of the old fridge we found the old unit was well past sell by date with extensive corrosion around the gas burner flame unit. It was obvious the right decision had been made.

The new fridge slid into place beautifully with a little bit of cosmetic work around the front edges, powered up on 240v and ran a treat. 12v wiring installed and tested, switched between power sources easily. Job complete.
