Question about Freezers
Hi There, I'm from Auckland NZ. I have a 1950's McAlpine fridge, which I want to dismantle for scrap & separate all the copper piping. We would like to take the motor & condenser unit out. Would it be dangerous to do so? I've disconnected the electrical wiring. We have had it for 20yrs, & has not worked since we've had it. It looks as if it may have been a commercial type fridge with a small ice box. Two doors. Extremely heavy. Took 4 big island men to lift it. Was meant to be a restoration project that never got off the ground. The Condenser Unit bottle is extremely rusted. Please can you help. Cheers & Thanks.
To dismantle this refrigerator you must first recover any gas left in it to do this i recommend you call a refrigerator mechanic it is illegal to expel refrigerant gas into the air once he has done this you can safely dismantle if your refrigerant is lpg the mechanic will know how to do safely let me know how you go
