Default Removing fridge

My fridge in my scr3300 doesnít work. Iím thinking of removing it using the space for extra storage and buying a counter top ice maker to keep coolers cold. Anyone out there using ice and coolers instead of a fridge

I was on a mooring for the 2017 season, so we never turned our fridge on. The only factor in my mind is....

1) Do you drink beer?

2) Do you drink a lot of beer?

I doubt that a table-top ice maker could keep our beer cooler (we call it "The Coffin") full and cold.

Will be in a slip at the marina so I can start the weekend with a couple bags of ice and then just supplement. And thankfully yes I do drink a lot of beer

We bought "The coffin" so we could line the bottom with blocks of ice. Load it with beer and food, then top off the beer with bags ice. The blocks go a long way to stabilizing the thermocycling. Then all we needed to do daily is toss a few more bags in.

We did the cooler and ice for many years with the smaller boats, nothing beats have a working fridge ( ac or dc) and now a working icemaker onboard......

I have read that the 3300 can use the Norcold DE-0041. I have also read that the process of getting the unit into the cabin is difficult.

I have two questions: 1) were you able to find a replacement and if so was it the model I mention above? 2) What magic did you have to perform to get it though the stairwell and into the cabin?

How much work did you have to remove the door? I think my original 2001 Norcold DE-441 is toast. But I'm struggling with how to get a replacement back into the cabin (3500 SCR).

I replaced the fridge on my 3700 SCR a few years ago. I had to:

Remove the passenger helm seat
Unscrew and remove the port side fiberglass helm bulkhead
Unscrew the door tracks and move it aside to the point it no longer protruded over the cabin entryway
Lift the fridge, tilting it to vertical on the way in, to clear the handrail.

Good luck!
