Removing old never-cold

So started the new fridge project today got the old 1210 out of the whole it's in and on the floor. Now my question is how do I get it out of the coach? I bought the new fridge because it will come in through my door this beast is to big for that I'm hoping the cooling coil will come off the back but haven't started that yet does anyone who has done this have any input on what can be done to strip this old beast down to get it out?

It is often necessary to remove a window or windshield to obtain opening big enough. If the new unit fits through the door, then perhaps a sawzall will convince the old unit out the door. Be careful around coils full of pressurized refrigerant.

I'm thinking the sawzall might come into play here but I thought I read that the cooling system comes off and it can go out seperately that's the instructions I was hoping to find from someone.

Please describe your rig! I would not go at it with a sawsall just yet. The ammonia is poisionous as well as flammable ( Poisonous at best). what are your door measurements?

The cooling unit will come off the back. you will find how to replace the cooling unit. This should help you remove the coils.

I did our 1200 a few months back. Removed all doors and hinges, removed the cooling unit (easy enough) and then it barely made it through my 30" entry door. The door was big enough, but the angle to get around the console, chair pedestal, etc. made is a tight squeeze. And yes, I did remove the passenger chair - necessary to get new one in and old one out.

I just finish my change out and I had to remove the doors on figde with hinges and remove my passenger seat and the safety bar . The entry door had to be taken off and the frame on the inside to gain enough room for nocool. I did put duct tape on cooling fins on top to help that no damage to rubber moldings on entry door did not get hurt.

Senior moment for me should have searched you tube first I've learned a lot from them. So now with the video watched and the cooling section removed without any problems the box that is left is only 20 inches deep and should go through the 24 inch door with no problems. Now if only my help would show up this project could move along.

I am considering replacing my no cold also, will my Trace Legend Series 1 1512 work for a residential?
