rjhay: The easiest is to replace the older Adler Baubour with a new one - that's not rocket surgery!!

Look at Stu's site and then decide.

We just replaced our AB fridge with a new one.  We bought it through defender.  The install was easy since the systems were so similar that all but two of the mounting holes for the compressor lined up.  They changed what side the refrigant line couplers are on and thus the mounting holes on that end were flipped in respect to the old one.  the holes for the evaporator and the thermostat lined up perfectly.  Whole remove and replace took 5 hours.  Works like a dream now.  The evaporator even came with two new vertical ice trays!  It has been in about a month with now issues what so ever.  In our setup the compressor is under the forward sette seat.

Good to hear! A bit tougher install (on the body) in the aft lazerette but good to hear for my future anyway.

On DarBay, around 7 years ago, we replaced  the AB unit a technautics Cold Blue cold Plate. We are very happy with it.

Back when we got the Cold Blue (cold Plate ). It consumed about 1/2 the power of the AB. Not sure if they are more compatible now days.
