Installation Tips and Advice:

  • While installing a replacement cooling unit into a vintage drink machine is not difficult for many, if you are not sure or confidence in your mechanical ability please hire a local refrigeration guy to assist you. We are not responsible for any damage during the install of the unit and this is not covered by warranty.
  • Unpacking
    • When you get the unit, have 2 people to remove it from the box so you do not stress a joint nor over bend the tubing.
  • Removing your old unit
    • Be sure it is not plugged in!
    • We start with the molding, removing it, so that the upper unit can be removed.
    • Next, unscrew the upper unit, and thermostat from the tub.
    • Remove any wire or tubing holders that can be holding back the upper unit from being removed freely.
    • Next, unbolt/unscreen the compressor unit base that is attached to the frame of the machine. Most of the time the compressor and fan sit on a metal base. Sometimes to get the base separated from the frame, you may need to turn the machine onto the side to get to the bottom side of the bolt. Sometimes these bolts are rusted on and will require some work to break them free.
    • Once everything is free, the old unit will slide out in 1 piece.
    • You may choose to reuse the base that the old compressor sat on, or replace it with another metal or wood base.
