    Default 2002 Engel get's new lease on life

    My +- 2002 stainless steel Engel 40 liter fridge started to loose capacity so I took it to a home based repairer in Monta Vista who replaced the compressor and power supply for very reasonable price and she lives again.

    Set to cycle much more infrequently as the Engel compressor always did. Runs about 1,2 amps higher than the Engel (same as my 65 liter N.Lunar) but very happy with the job.
    The guy only works evenings so it took about 6 months to get it back but it's only a spare so didn't push the guy.

    On another note, when he dropped off the Engel he noticed my N.Lunar was stored and not running and suggested I should rather leave it on. He say's he gets many in with holes in the evaporator pipes due to apparently the insulation material eating into the pipe material. Then he says it's scrap and only option other than new is to send it to N.L where they fit a new box and transfer all your old parts.
