Default refrigerator

3000 scr Norcold de451 refrigerator not getting cold, so looking to replace it. What have others gone to for a replacement. Struggling to find reasonably priced Norcold but having no luck.

You wont find any marine frig reasonably priced, I replaced mine with a Dometic marine frig on my 3100se. Slightly smaller outside dimensions so made a frame with black starboard. Inside dimensions are actually slightly larger.

Go to your nearest camping/RV store and tell them what you have and they will set you up. If they a norcold in stock,great, if you have to order one make sure it's shipped by truck because UPS will beat the crap out of them. I went through 3 of them with Amazon. UPS beat them to a pulp.
Got my money back and went to my buddy's RV store. Price 800 to 900 bucks.

Good luck

Have you looked into having it serviced? Our Norcold was not cooling and since the seals were tight we had the AC/DC power mod and fan replaced for $451.00

The NR751 from Norcold should be the direct replacement. They run about $1,000 in black and about $1300 in SS, not counting for tax and any shipping.

You could simply try an HVAC and refrigeration person. We had the same problem and it simply needed to be recharged. Fortunately for us, the charge held for the next few years , then we sold that boat. You may get lucky and just need a recharge. If it works, then gets progressively worse over time again, then its time to replace.
