Thread: Home made Larder

    Home made Larder

    On the grounds that there is no such thing as a stupid question, just one I don't know the answer to, but someone on this forum will.......

    I have a small larder in the corner of the garage that is fine for deer from November to March.
    I also have an old small chest freezer due to get scrapped (lid doesn't seal any more). So...can I use the unit from the freezer in the larder (adding insulation) to make a chiller? I guess what I'm really asking (as I can just try and see) is there any safety aspect in doing this?

    Yes, but you will need a refrigeration engineer to re-gas after the move over. You may struggle to separate all the pipework without damage.

    Ask a local dairy farmer for a refrigeration engineers contact details.

    Section 161 of the Highways Act 1980 (England & Wales) makes it an offence to discharge a firearm within 50 ft of the centre of a highway with vehicular rights without lawful authority or excuse, if as a result a user of the highway is injured, interrupted or endangered.

    Fridge engineer here.
    You will need a new controler,without looking at it you will have to be very carefull disconnecting the coils and pipework out of the freezer box try not to lose the gas by breaking the pipes some freezers use butane as a freezer gas so dont play with flames.
    PM me and I will give you my number and you can ring me if you get stuck.
