Dometic M52 (67 Safari) gas flue baffle

Hello all, Anyone out there have a baffle for sale, maybe from a leftovr old dead refrigerator?
Dummie me, did not realize how fragle the thing was, and a welding attempt did not work.
Many thanks...Joe, with no baffle.

Joe,

I would suggest contacting Dometic directly thru www.dometicusa.com and see if they have any NOS parts. The spiral baffle is a very important part of the heating section of your fridge and it will not work properly without the correct part placed at the required position in the flue tube.

I've still got the fridge I took out of my 1970 Caravel. It was working at the time, but lots of cracked plastic and tired gaskets.

I'm traveling, so can't get the details, but it was about 38" high. If that sounds like the right model, I'd be willing to see if I can remove the baffle and send it. It'll be two weeks from now before I'm home. Let me know.

Cherokee RV in Denver has a ton of old fridges on the lot. They might be willing to find the part, also.

Sounds like the right height. The needed baffle for the '67 Dometic model MA52(a or b) fits down a 3/4" flue bore, is 6" long(originally), with two or three twists in the 6" length. I have the hanger wire for proper vertical placement. I'll check with Cherokee. Best regards, and thanks much! Joe.

Thanks, but no luck there, they did refer me to one used parts bone-yard.
