My husband and I are thinking of ripping out our current refrigeration system and updating it with a new one. Our current system is a spillover with roughly 6.5 cf on each side. The freezer is not freezing, won't go below 36 degrees although the fridge stays at a nice temp, around 38-40. It is a cold plate with a remote, 24 volt compressor and we are in hot Florida Keys waters (for now) so I know the system is challenged to begin with.
I'm writing the board to 'troll' for recommendations; what is the best system out there nowadays if we do refit? Any suggestions on reviving the system we have? We've cleaned and defrosted religiously. Also, we have a steel hull so I would rather not cut another hole in her to accommodate some of the new keel cooled systems... Love to hear your feedback. Thanks,
Carol and Rich
