I am trying to determine how the original refrigerator was secured in the boat.   Anyone know?

Thanks,

Mark

Its been a couple of years since replacing ours but if my memory serves me right the original fridge was just a tight fit no fasteners holding it,  now getting it out of the boat was fun had to cut it in two in the salon as it wouldn't fit thru the cabin door. Lowes had a perfect fit new fridge in stock works great

When you say perfect fit what do you mean? I found a fridge that fits through the salon door and will take up the entire space same size as old fridge, was not easy to find, but considering all my options which is why I am asking.

Thanks,

Not sure but the 35 and I think the 38 at least some had a splice in the door that allowed an additional 1 1/2" opening for moving in the fridge.  We found  an under-counter fridge, pricey at the time.  I fastened ours to the floor using the previous bracket?  I will try to remember to check tomorrow when on the boat.

Attached is the story of our fridge replacement:

CC Commander Refrigerator Story

Here is the latest version of what we used https://products.geappliances.com/appliance/gea-specs/GCE06GGHBB

It fit thru the door and filled the old fridge space very well although I did have to remove the new fridge door to fit it thru the cabin door

I found a nice stainless fridge/freezer combo that based on the measurements should fit through the cabin door and fill the entire space left by the old one. The trick on my boat is that the fridge cannot be more than 21 inches deep. That is the limitation on the cabin door opening. This particular unit measures 20.5 inches deep with the door off. Unclear how I will secure it because there is little space left around the perimeter once put in place. Suggestions welcomed.

Thanks,

Mark

Remove the fridge door and the cabin door along with a trim piece on one side of the cabin doorjamb then measure for a new fridge measuring just the box without the door on the fridge that will give you a lot bigger fridge

Chris, I don't think it is necessary to remove the wood trim from the door.    I am getting the largest fridge the space will accommodate.   My fridge hole is 24 inches wide and the fridge is 23.63 wide.   Fridge dimensions are 33.25 high, 20.5 deep without door, and 23.63 wide.   The  salon door opening is 24 inches x 21 inches.   Unless I measured wrong it should fit through the door.   Will report back once I am back on the boat.    

Thanks,

Mark

Do you know the make and model of the fridge you bought? I have been going crazy trying to find one to fit. Thanks

The 410 has  a larger galley fridge  than the  under counter  ones  here.  I think  you  will  need  to  cut  it  up to remove  it  and buy a narrower one to replace  it.  From  memory  you will  have  about  5 or 6 inches  of  space along the  side .

Rachel, your note is timely.    For my 38 I bought the following unit:  Summit CT663BBISSHV.   It is the right size to fit in the full space on my 38.   If I did the measurements right it should fit through the salon opening with the front door of the fridge taken off.    I am actually headed to the boat this weekend and am planning to install it either this weekend or next.   I can report back if successful.   I cannot guarantee it will fit until I do my install, but fairly confident I measured correctly.   My doubt is the width of the unit with the door off.   I called the factory and they gave me the measurement which fits fi correct.    Keeping my fingers crossed it works.   It is a very nice stainless unit.

Thanks,

Mark
