Getting the Bottom part of the Frig working

repairing your refrigerator the simple way

this tip is for the frig that works in the freezer but not in the lower section. Usually a problem in the older campers . remember the theory about cold air goes down . as long as your freezer works than all you do is take a 1 inch hole saw and cut a hole in the center of the freezer into the lower section. then liquid nail the hole all the way around and insert a pre cut 1 inch pvc pipe flush with the bottom of freezer and top of lower section. if lower section gets to cold than close off part of hole.. I used a 2 inch hole and it made the lower section 21 degrees. so I had to close off part of it. new frigs cost from $ 800 and up. don't forget to place a small rack in the bottom of freezer. I hope this helps someone..
PS - camper repair places have old frigs they have taken out of campers where the freezer worked but not the bottom and will sell for scrap if your freezer doesn't work..
THE repair when finished doesn"t look jacklegged

When you inspect the workings of an adsorption refrigerator it becomes clear why that happens. Cooling unit, how it works.
If you go to the main page you find a wealth of information about your RV refrigerator.
