Rotary Compressor Replacement
« on: August 08, 2012, 02:31:07 PM »

I walked into a kitchen that was built around a 35 year old refrigerator ksss36dw that I need to replace the compressor on (and most likely the evap and heat exchange due to the comp being nla 4387531) the only problem is the compressor is an old rotary type and I remember there used to be a high side kit that FSP made but I'm at a loss I'm trying to save every job I can get and this is a nice $ job if I can get it all together. 

Anybody come across this at all or have any tips or advice I'm more than open.  Thanks guys hope everyone is doing well with the hot weather.

Sears is showing that high side in stock. I hope they really like their fridge. Sign up for a commercial account and you get wholesale pricing and free shipping on orders over $100

Nice find, I was just trying to locate one for him too.  O0

Not going to be a cheap repair. Let us know if they decide to fix it or not.

I remember telling six customers in one day they had a bad compressor on that very unit. Junk.
