Will my 2017 Dometic 3 way fridge fit through the door opening with the door frame removed?


Recommended Posts

Or do I have to disassemble the FRIDGE partially? Just checking, I am pretty sure it will clear, but I would hate to remove the door assembly and then find out I was wrong.

Are there any tricks to getting the door frame off? It looks straight forward. But I expect it requires two people to be safe. Comments? Pictures?

Thanks,

How about the egress window in the back. Is it wide enough?

When Oliver replaced our original Norcold with the Dometic,  they told me they had to remove the door frame to do the swap. Also, (because we have an Elite 1) they had to remove the shower wall. The tightest pinchpoint for us is the space between the shower wall and the microwave cabinet. 

When we replaced the Dometic ourselves, Paul took it out in three pieces, and we didn't have to remove the door frame. But, our fridge was dead, and yours still works, so you likely want to keep it in one piece and sell it.... I  would verify with service, as we probably have the same door rough opening,  but I can't be certain of that.

The good news is, the indel 130s fit through the door with the door frame installed, and just barely fit between the microwave cabinet and shower wall, as well. 🙂
