American Manufactured Marine Fridges

I have a small American Vitrifigo C39 fridge onboard which was purchased by the previous owners in 2002.

It generally appears to have 'had it's day' and needs replacing.

I have just been quoted by their UK agents 399.00 + VAT (20% in UK) plus they want another 40 + VAT so I can switch between 12v and 230v totalling 526.00 + delivery.

Just how reliable are these Vitrifigo Marine fridges? Is it unreasonable after 9 years to have to replace it, as it is not used 24/7 ? they are not so common in the UK like the Weaco fridges (which are also not cheap).

However before deciding and shopping around on line it will be interesting to hear from others who have experiance of the reliability of these fridges.

Thanks for your help
