Identifying EC 280 Refrigerator Parts?

djstewydjstewy Olympia Yacht Club - Olympia, WAMember Posts: 37 ✭✭
My wife and I have a 2007' Rinker Express Cruiser 280 and our cockpit freezer has had its release handle break.  The small plastic parts that hold it onto the door have broken all along the left side making the release mechanism stick up a bit.  It's still usable, but clunky and I'm afraid the whole release handle will eventually break off. 

Anybody know what model of Waeco fridge these boats have?  I couldn't find any identifying marks on the front of it besides the brand name.  When I looked at it through the back by removing the trash recepticle I couldn't make anything out.  It looks like Waeco may have rebranded to Domestic now as well, but their support site isn't helpful.  I'd love to find a replacement door instead of the entire fridge if possible.  Any help would be appreciated!

    Same thing happened to mine. I am replacing the door, but it is in limbo between China, New Zealand and the USofA.

    When you open the door, the S/N and model number are on the upper side inside the door by the freezer door.

    You can contact Cruisair they can get the door for you. I ordered one over the winter and just recently installed it.

    You guys all rock, thanks for the info!  I'll be reaching out to the vendor on Monday.

    Aqua_Aura - No kidding!  There are a few of us up here in the NW, another member lives up in Anacortes with our same boat. :smile:

    I wish I was in Anacortes I grew up in Mount Vernon and my wife is from Port Angeles but we randomly ended up in Longview after living in Phoenix.

    Just so everyone knows, I just ordered a handle for my fridge, here is the link

    I'll have to let you know if/when it actually arrives.  I'm the one who broke mine, and I was getting pretty mad at myself after all the hours I spent looking for a handle, door or anything.  It was getting close to putting out $1200 for a new fridge.

    That's a great find!  I'm gonna have to see if it will fit my salon fridge.

    Where was that link when I needed it. I ordered the entire door.

    Hey everyone, so you know, that handle is for a CR-1110 not the CR-1065 that I have.  So, if anyone wants a handle, I have a brand new one in hand.  Total of $75 (Canadian) invested, so if I get that back I'm happy.  And if anyone finds a CR-1065 handle...let me know :)

    So, I finally remembered to look at my fridge and it is the waeco CR-110. The handle in the link says it's for dometic.  Will it work on mine?  @GMDoc is this what you bought?
