Would an aircon compressor from a car work as a freezer compressor?

What you have to check now is that salt water has ot entered the system if it has its you are looking at replacement did a 10.50 fridge a few years ago but the fault was picked up quickly and we managed to flush the system. If it has been sitting for a while I would say the system is contaminated.I think you might be spending good money on bad.New 12volt system and a good solar panel will be a lot cheaper or a 10litre bock of frozen water in the freezer would give you 3 to 5 days. I must be the only Refrigeration engineer who doesn’t have a fridge on his boat pulled ours out as could see to many problems with it as it was old.Fixing what you have would be lucky under $4000.00 even at mates rates

Condensor was isolated from the rest of the system luckily and i have a spare condensor to pressure test so hopefully not all bad
