Sounds like a fridge upgrade in the process John :?: :-T

Edit. I have just read your post on another fridge problem thread. Welcome to the "Samsung Inverter Fridge Club" Although, to be a fully paid up member, you really need the LiFePO4 battery upgrade to complement it ;) :)

Well we're there - sort of Chris. Picked up the new fridge in Nelson today (a sharp price at Harvey Normans, $300< Leemings retail and $200< than their NZMCA discount price) and back to Takaka thanks to sil's ute. Now the mission is to remove the old fridge (won't be easy and at some point will need a gas fitter to close off the line before we can use any gas appliances - how many of those do you think there are in Takaka?). Then modifying the cabinetry to allow the taller Samsung to fit into the alcove. My biggest concern is suitable access to the back of the old fridge to disconnect its flue and then to fasten down the new fridge.

Cheers

Well no great dramas. Managed to get the old fridge out OK after removing doors (and a protruding bench top) to make it a little lighter and slimmer. Cut out some cabinetry for the taller unit and got the new Samsung installed just as the rain started. As we're on mains at present it was max chilling for both fridge and freezer and now it's cold beers and ice for the GnT. Haven't had a chance to check it running from the 600W inverter yet.

Cheers
John
