Free fridge - Florida - GONE

I have a Vitrifrigo that does not run well anymore. It cools but barely. It worked well for years. The local repairman says it is the control board, cost about $ 450 plus labor. I replaced it with a small office fridge that runs on the inverter. We did pay $ 1,400 for the Vitrifrigo but I am happy with the cheap $ 120.00 substitute.
I hate to throw it away, someone may want to fix it or use it for parts. Message me and come to pick it up.
It is about 10 cu.in. total capacity, 53" high.

You can find a module for less than $300. If you go with a 12V only, about $70 less than that. Replacing the module can be DIY, it's just a matter of swapping out the part, connect wires to the same terminals they come off of. EZPZ. The most recent module for 12/24/120 is (101N0510).

Be sure the software version is at least text: 1.19 . Version 1.06 was "moody" and may not be reliable.



If you don't need the 120V (why would you, really??) save a couple bucks and just run it on 12V. (The 12V module is 101N0210)

Steve, about a year ago I had to replace the module on my vitrifrigo they sent and I installed the 101N0510
How can I find out what software version it is using, the 1.06 or the 1.19 do you know if it can be upgraded, user reprogramed or will I eventually need a new modulewith 1.19?
Thanks!

I don't know how to edit my previous posts but after spending some time testing etc., I go back to the first idea: I will give the fridge away, free.
The freezer cools really well but the fridge part stays warm. The compressor and fan run, Even if I fixed it, I would not know what to do with it.
