That is an almost exact match of mine! Still running but I think the compressor needs to be replaced....Have been very lucky!
Mine is still ticking... like a Timex watch.
It has been almost 25 Years.
The Uniform Commercial Code, as it relates to secured financial transactions, defines a fixture as movable personal property that have become so related to real property that an interest in them arises under real property law. Think of your heating or cooling system for the non-lawyers here.
My Vinoteque is a fixture. When it arrived, despite my best measurements, it would not turn in the limited space in the stairwell to my basement. The movers un-crated the cooler and left it in my garage with a plan to pick it up and return it if I could not figure out what to do.
I ended up removing the landing to the stairs leading to my basement and lowered the unit down, and had the landing and some steps rebuilt.
It is now a fixture. Too expensive to remove. The buyer of my house has the option of keeping the unit. If they do not want it, a sawzall, hammer and some wrenches will remove it. I'll use the racking and give away the compressor.
Marshall - If that happens, I would be happy to give you the compressor. Except, I don't think the value of a 25 year old unit is worth the shipping costs East Coast to West Coast.
