Hi guys,

I have a faulty Westinghouse RP241T 241 litre fridge only up for grabs. It does cool and the compressor works but with the fridge empty on a cool day the compressor is on 50% of the time just to get it to 4 degrees. It is not powerful enough to crash chill a 23 litre brew. It takes days to reduce the brew temp to 8 degrees with the compressor on full time. I have a BrewPi so I can see all this in graphs.

It fits a 30 litre fermenter comfortably and would make a great warming chamber or if you know a refrigeration tradie you might be able to fix it. I haven't tried to fix it I just got another from a mate.

It is unmodified and comes with all the shelves and compartments.

It has a couple of scratches on the outside and I scorched the top on the inside when I had my heater bulb too close but other than that is is in good condition.

Free for someone that can arrange pickup within 7 days. Or you can donate a bottle of your finest brew :)

PM me.

Cheers Tim.

The compressor runs full time and still doesn't get down to a reasonable temp. It used to be fine. I don't have room for it anyway so it has to go.
