Hello, update, I called and left my number for Stuart with no reply as yet. In the meantime on the net (66), I got the name onboard marine
Svcs and quickly Oscar was out and very friendly. He found a few things so far. The solenoid that turns on the fridge circuit is 12v and the power to it is 21v so it gets very hot and turns off during of the fridge and explaining why the fridge plate won't get cold. Then a test showed that I have pressure in the system so if any refrigerant is needed it would be just a bit so there are no bubbles in the sight window. The water
pump is 24v but the transformer powering it says 230v to 12v. So for some reason the transformer is outputting 21v which is on for the sea water pump but burning up the 12v solenoid (blue Danfoss one described above). I suggest a DC to DC 24v to 12v to put inline on the solenoid as the simplest option. I will see if Budget Marine
has one. Tomorrow he will be back to top off the refrigerant and we will look at the options again on the control circuit that's obviously too high.
My best guess what happened was during the "phase out" work at the moorings base in Tortola the electrical
guy or someone rewired it back incorrectly. Who knows maybe it came to them that way from Sunsail. I won't throw them under the bus as I do not know how it got this way.
Next I will do a diagram of the system.
Any experts still willing to chime in now that more details are in?
