I have searched and noted conversations on many other models but nothing on the 3988. I am looking to replace the standard side by side unit. It is loud and continiously runs. No need for ac/dc straight 110. Any suggestions would be appreciated, thanks.

We have I believe the same setup on our 43, two side by sides. PO had replaced with two Sanyo units. I saw the same unit in another boat I looked at. I believe those are direct fit in replacements as far as size goes.

I can't tell you the model from here at the house, but if you need it, just post a note and I'll check next time I'm at the boat.

Given the choice, I'd get 12v-110, but I'm not going to go to the expense if the ones I have are working o.k. I've got a generator and a whole bucket full of batteries, so no problems so far.

I have the original Nova Kool units in mine and I cannot even hear them run.
It is perhaps something you may wish to have a service person lokk at before opting for new units.

Thanks for the replys. I have had the service folks come in and the units are still loud and as each year goes by harder to keep cold. I am not complaining they have served us well. Just trying to get a feel of what others have done.
If you can get the sanyo numbers at some point that would be appreciated.

Mine was running almost continuously last year and I found that the cooling fan for the compressor had quit working. I replaced it with a similar computer fan, (

Sure Marine in Seattle are experts in refrigeration. They can tell you which units will fit right in.

I had ours rebuilt a couple of years ago for 2 boat units. Just 12 volts did not put the 120 volts inverter in it. Runs great with the new Dan Foss compressor drawing about 2 1/2 amps
