After 65+ years my refrigerator gave out in our 1954
Silver Streak (see newbie intro in a recent post). The refrigerator is the Marvel UL-40 (ice box/electric). So far, I have not been able to find anyone in the Portland, OR area that is willing to look at it. The refrigerator had been working fine and the "next day" I turned it on and the unit was not cooling. In addition, when I would turn the switch to the off position, the unit would continue to run. I have a strong desire to keep the original refrigerator. Has anyone had any luck with replacing the cooling unit?
I saw an ad for the Norcolder AC/DC SCQT Conversion Kit. Would you be able to connect this unit to the evaporator in the Marvel unit so that you could retain the original appearance of the refrigerator? If there is an existing thread that I can review -- please send me in that direction.
