Hi All,

After spending this last winter taking apart and rebuilding both my Ideal 55 Slider and my 1946 Kelvinator Shop refrigerator...

I cannot find anyone in or around San Francisco that will come out and re-charge them. With anything. The guy that came out and evacuated the Ideal 55 is no longer around. The Kelvinator works but ice blocks where the line comes into the ice box. I tried the process of heating the ice box to get the water-oil "mayonnaise" to get back down to the did not work. It is too bas as the thing cools great but after two days the thing blocks and the compressor runs and will over heat.

The Slider of course had to be evacuated to get it apart. Not too bad inside other than the bottom metal plate was not looking to good and the insulation had had it.

Anyone have any ideas? I have two nice looking units that are now door stops.

If nobody local can be found or is willing to work on the units, you may have to package/ship the unit to someone...

My six cents,

     Not sure about the Kelvinator but we can fix the 55 if you can get it down south to Ventura.
