Once you have removed the interior liner, replaced the cabinet insulation, it's time to install the cabinet liner.  This tip came from several members and does aid greatly for installing the liner without too much interference of the insulation.

A picture is worth a thousand words...

It's the way to go for sure! As Pat Pixley & I can confirm after having to pull the liner out of his repainted Orange Crush Ideal-55 twice, once for the original re-installation, then again in order to remove & reinstall it again to fix a pesky pin-hole leak in his liners' evaporator coils. it was lots of fun!  censored but with the cardboard trick at least it was relativly easy to reinsert the liner/tank back into the chassis ( which can be tricky with an Ideal unit as it has lots of tubing & fasteners to snag the insulation on the way back into the chassis. but sucess was ours. ha-za!  happydrinkers

Hey thats a picture of my Vendorlator 56! It really does help. I did one previously without using the cardboard and it was almost impossible. Once I learned this trick it was simple.

I have the same machine...well, it's my wife's actually.  Are there cooling tubes in the walls of that machine???  Looking at it when I had to reassemble the cabinet when I got it, it did not appear as though there were.  Granted, the liner was not out, it was just all the other parts I had to reassemble, but it looked like only cooling stuff was in the bottom where condensor is located.  Interesting!  Thanks for the tip on using cardboard.  I may have to use it!!!

The evaporators cooling tubing is attached to the inside wall of the liner itself, (not to the machines shell)

Yes otherwise the metal liner catches on the insulation and pushes it into the machine and it is not evenly distributed. Then the places missing insulation will the sweat badly and your machine will not hold cold air well

I had several pieces of Formica (or counter top material) that I find to be a little better than cardboard.  It's stiffer and slicker and will last so you can use it over and over and it's not as thick.
