Comments about 53qt. Coolmatic Compressor Cooler/Freezer:
We bought the 53 qt. Dometic at West Marine in Fajardo, PR...we live and cruise on our sailboat full time...changed our cold-plate refrigeration system to the Dometic portable units (we bought the 53 qt. unit and run it as a fridge and we bought the 33 qt. unit and run it as a freezer)...we power both units solely with solar and wind energy...they work fantastic...have had them running since November of last year...had a problem with the 53 qt. unit after 6 months (unit shut itself off for no reason), but got it exchanged for a new one and have had no problems since! This is renewable energy at its best...the Dometic portable compressor driven units are extremely energy efficient and unbelievably quiet...we use the space from the old cold plate system for storage of our canned goods...we will never change back to that system...the Dometic units are the way to go in the future...had we known what we know now we would have changed over to Dometic drop in units (they fit in the space of the old cold plate,system)...but we are very happy with our system of Dometic portable units...we are truly free now and not slaves to our old refrigeration system anymore...Dometic is it...we are happy sailors again because of them! Thank you Dometic and thank you West Marine Fajardo, PR!
Service and delivery comments:
We commend West Marine in Fajardo for their outstanding customer service! We had a problem with the 55 qt. unit after 6 months...it started to shut off itself and gave error codes...after troubleshooting and coming to the store twice it was determined that it was a faulty unit...we received a brand-new unit the second time, which has worked flawlessly!
