I'm thinking you either top vent or side vent. Can't see both, but then again, these particular fridges are lower in the performance scale.

Hi, we received your email.
Sorry, we currently do not provide any shipping or product support for international sales. We only operate within Australia.
Sorry again we could not be more help in this case.
Best regards,
Mike.

It appears that flue kit would be installed from the top and the angle layout before cutting a hole could be tricky.

Wonder if I went to Sydney and bought a few hundred whether or not I could write that off as a business trip?

or better yet, donate them to ETI and claim a charitable deduction......I here there is now less than 1% chance of being audited, due to budget constraints, when I was there it was closer to 8%.

My plan was if I could not find someone to ship it internationally was to prepay it and see if I could find a international courier and have it picked up. Plan looks good on paper...

Cheers

I've got a friend who has set up a spare fridge in his shop, I've asked him to take the temp of the boiler discharge flue gas - might be simpler to use flexible exhaust tubing and route it out the top. Test is to see how hot and check against the specs for melting the top plastic; could always replace the plastic mesh with metal screen fabric.

Right now I'm at 7 degrees in freezer/38 in refer, it is empty, operating off 120v, setting is 3, outside temperature is 74 degrees. Tomorrow it is expected to go to 90 and Sunday 95. I found the temperature limit shunt for the 2 fans, it is attached to the lower tube by the flue assembly. It is a movable clip and there is a "nub" on the tube where I moved it to place the sensor right on the "nub". The tube gets hotter, the closer it gets to the flue assembly. This shunt is supposed to turn on the 2 fans at some specified high temperature so I will be observing it over the next 2 days. I will also slide the shunt over to the hottest part to see if it turns on automatically as this is the preferred method.In the event they do not turn on, I installed a micro witch on the rear, bypassing the temperature shunt. Pictures tomorrow as well as further recordings.
