Hi There, I have a 1950's McAlpine Refridgerater to Dismantle

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.

Check for ice build-up in and around the freezer fan where the blades are, if you can see ice in there (some times it may look like white foam but dont be fooled, it will be ice), the fan will be hitting it, defrost the freezer and check defrost element, (you will have to dismantle freezer section to get to it but reletively simple job) disconect from mains first. Good luck
