Thought I would update as to what we have done so far on the fridge repair.
First found that the PO had in fact used the nano pore with foil vac sealed insulation panels
. So that was good. Unfortunately several of the panels had lost
the vacuum seal. They were held in place on the inside of the fiberglass
end original cooler box ( that according to the manufacturer has polyurethane
insulation all around it.) with stick on Velcro.
We used a food
saver and food saver bags to re vacuum seal the panels. This worked really well. So far we have put these back in the box. There were several large spaces between the panels.....contemplated spray foam but settled on the bubble wrap stuffed in and alum tape to seal it all together. Before there was nothing in those spaces but we had really good freezer and refrigerator
temps. Kept ice cream in the freezer.
Next we have put that foiled bubble wrap lining the whole thing. Also taped in place.
The plan is to cut fiberglass
boards and epoxy
those in to make a fully sealed unit.
Soon as I get time I will post a link to some pictures.
