Fridge Question

I have a 26' Bayliner Ciera and it looks to have a stock fridge in the very small galley. Can anyone tell me how it works. Have been trying to decide to do away with it or keep. I will keep it if I can figure out how it works.

I know someone on this board will be able to help..

Thanks,
Cindy

Cindy,

You might get more responses if you list a few more details about the fridge. When you say "stock" that says to me that it's likely to be an under-counter, 120 VAC, front-opening model (like many college students have in their rooms), but I could be wrong.

Many years ago I spent a few weeks rigging Bayliners for sale.
I think I may still have a Service Manual for the Ciera 26 - I'll look for it.

It definately has a front-loading, fridge - probably 12VDC -&- 120VAC. Unfortunately, I don't understand what you mean by "how it works".

You are exactly right

Gordmay-
Thanks for your response. You are right it is a front load. We built this boat from the beginning. Brand new motor,etc and the fridge is the last thing I have to do before we head out! Just wondering how it gets power. It has a waterline in the back but that is all that I see. Does it run off of the engine? Sorry if I sound dumb. I am with this one.

Thanks again,
Cindy

I believe trhat the Ciera's had AC/DC refrigerators & electric AC cooktops.
Definitely not engine-driven refer’.
I don't recall an Ice-Maker (cold water dispenser) so expect that the water line may be a condensate drain.
Still looking for the manual; but may have discarded it when I cleared out my office.

The stove that was in it was alcohol. But have replaced. The fridge is just as you described. So how do I keep it cold?

There has to be something besides the water (condensation) tube. Almost certainly there are wires carrying electricity to the unit. Keep looking. Have you tried pulling it out so you can see everywhere?

I think you should put a block of ice in it. Or try to take it out and see whats behind it. Can you find electric wires? can you post some photos or describe size shape layout ?

It could be one of those wonky iceboxes that LOOK like a fridge. If there is no condenser or wiring from the back then I bet it is just a foam box with a front opening door... we had one of these on an old Chris Craft...

What year is the boat?
