Norcold Conversion Kit

Does anyone have any experience with the Norcold refrigeration conversion kit? Perhaps some temperature measurements for how cold it will keep food? Will it keep things frozen close to the plate?

Norcold Tek II conversion kit

Got one with an old boat. Worked fine during the survey and for a few month after the purchase, but too soon it stop cooling. Been using ice since. I'm trying to find someone who has some experience re-charging these units. You out there? Here is the info on mine:

Norcold TEK II Dual Voltage Ice Box Conversion System, 120V AC and 12/24 V DC, Model: SCQT-4407 (40W), HFC-134a SL, 2.6oz, 45G, Serial: QIN-0017, Compressor: SK-511M, 50Hz, Lot#04-01-26 SAWAFUJI

Captn Tom.. any idea how many cubic ft the box is? Generally the units will freeze if you set the thermostat low. If you have or get one that has a rectangular evaporator you can fit small things inside it for freezing. Best temp for refrigeration of most foods is 38.

Leftwind... The 12 volt unit may have electrical problems, does it run at all?

Norcold kit

I have one of these units in my 34 catalina.The first one would not cool below 40 degrees.Nocold sent a new unite and it was installed by a marina mechanic.That was about 5 years ago.It works good in the winter,but will stop cooling for no reason,very unrelyable Don't waste your money,buy ice

Gulf tx, why did you let so much time go by instead of having made right in the beginning? By what you said it doesn't work in the heat of summer? Maybe the condenser needs a higher cfm fan. Or a keel cooler.

Yepper, the icebox is 10 cubic feet. I'll insert a foam block in the lower end to make it a bit smaller so the Norcold kit can cool it.

If the lines are the right size, you may be able to buy a small fitting to tap into the low side and recharge it there.
