We've got a Technautics compressor
plate that was connected to a spillover fridge.
The whole cabinet has water
intrusion so I am demoing the insulation
from the inside and plan on re-insulating the freezer
, possibly making it slightly larger, and install a stand-alone refer in the old refer cavity.
I have two questions:
1) I have the instructions for recharging the technautics system from their website, but it doesn't really mention how to take it apart. Do I have to worry about venting gas first, or about bleeding air later? I'd like to remove the cold plate from the freezer so I can rebuild
the box with better insulation
and make it water
2) Our holding plate is installed on the hull
side of the box (and takes up the whole wall). We are considering moving it to the fridge side, as that would recess it somewhat from the opening giving us more access to the space. Assuming we have insulation on the hull
side, would it be bad to relocate the plate? If we relocate the plate do we need knew tubing?
