Engel Ice Box Conversion Kits
Owners of boats and RVs and cabins in remote locations have
often expressed the desire to convert an available space in the
galley to a refrigerator or freezer. Now, with ENGEL'S high-quality,
ready-to-install Fridge/Freezer Conversion Kit, anyone can
have a refrigerator/freezer or replace the cooling system of a
broken or inefficient unit.
The Engel Fridge/Freezer Conversion Kit includes the latest
generation Engel Swing Motor compressor with a tri-voltage power
supply, and an evaporation unit, along with the needed copper tubing
and wiring needed to install the system. The evaporator is available
in either a flat-shaped (SCQT 4408F-U1-I) or ‘L’-shaped (SCQT
4408F-U-L) configuration. The entire cooling
system is precharged with 100% CFC-free Coolant, with
quick-connect fittings. The system operates on 12/24V DC and

AC. The system will
automatically switch from DC to AC power when available. The proven
efficiency of the swing motor compressor means minimal power
consumption, drawing between 0.7 and 2.5 amps per hour. This makes
the Engel Conversion Kit an ideal replacement for an outmoded
refrigerator with an inefficient traditional compressor.
The cooling unit will freeze up to a 50-quart capacity, assuming 2
inches of insulation surrounding the bottom, sides, and lid. It will
provide refrigeration to 40ºF for up to a 100-qt. capacity.
When designing a new unit, the user must first fabricate an
insulated cold box with a tight fitting door or lid, or use an
existing good quality cooler like an Engel ENG65 DeepBlue Cooler.
The compressor and evaporation unit can be installed next to or away
from the enclosure. Approximately 4 feet of copper tubing and wiring
is included and can be played out as needed to connect the
compressor unit with the cold-box. Suitable ventilation is needed
around the compressor, in order for air to enter low and escape
The price of each unit is $799.
