You might try WAECO, as they are the makers of Adler Barbour. WAECO USA

ZapataII Replacing the unit with a 110V compressor sounds interesting. Will see how the prior suggestion works first and use this as "fallback". Thanks,

ZapataII Thanks much, I'll check this when I get back to Newport.

camaraderie On older Adler Barbour units there is a white plastic Terminal Block where all the external wiring enters the unit. These are screw down terminals and somtimes a wire comes loose. There is also at least one fuse assembly to check there as well to see if a fuse blew. If you see any eveidence of blackening/melting at the terminals...wait for a pro...but you may save a few bucks if you check these simple things first. Good luck!

EO32 My 20 year old "Cold Machine" did not work when I bought the boat last year.

I took a 110v compressor off of a mini fridge and brazed it in place. It works great. Keeps the fridge cold when on shore power and draws 100 watts off my inverter.

It also is R134a, the Cold Machine was R12, so I can recharge it with off the shelf coolant.

Cheaper than an $800 replacement unit.
