Here's a trouble shooting guide. It will tell where your problem is.

I am now looking at the Vitrifrigo C115 fridge with no freezer. Anyone have experience with these types?

I've had a Vitrifrigo freezer/fridge combo for four years. It works well. The system automatically switches from 12v DC to 115v AC. I did add ventilation fans (intake and exhaust) in the back of the cabinet to make the system more efficient. The freezer keeps ice cream frozen and the fridge section stays at around 38 degrees with the controller set just above the mid point.

I am leaning toward the Vitrifrigo mostly because they have a model that will fit in the hole.
Bayview is correct, almost all using the Danfoss compressor. I like it because it is variable speed.

That's what i got for both fridge and freezer. Three big pluses for me:

1. I could get an external compressor for each unit.
2. Price was very competitive, I got both for $2300.
3. Some Isotherms are made in China, all Vitrifrigos are still made in Italy, (less than 20 km for Isotherm). The mental picture of Italians trying to supervise Chinese workers, was almost mind blowing.


Just make sure you spend the extra $100 and get the any voltage (chip).

I see you're in the Oak Harbor area, so you might also want to look at Nova Kool fridges, they're made up in Coquitlam, BC, it's near Vancouver and according to Customs, you can bring them across without paying duty. I really thought their design and run time functionality was excellent. But I have a built in unit and their sizes were just not close enough to make it work. It would have resulted in a major cabinet overhaul.
