    Default Engel 40lt Compressor & Condenser Packed up

    Hi Guys,

    On one of our recent trips to Mabua, my 40lt Engel packed up. I dropped it off at 4x4 Megaworld in Bryanston to have a look at. They came back and told me that the compressor & Condenser have packed up and it is irreparable.

    It is a very old fridge that I bought second hand a few years ago, but It has served me well.

    Is there anything that can be done to repair it, or find second hand replacement compressors etc? I just find it hard to believe that I need to chuck it in the bin, seeing as a new one is R8k.

    What would you guys do?

    Any advice welcome please.

    Thanks,

    Don
