So Ive been working on the 72 Sears Coldspot 13 cf fridge I got last September. I took the doors off to paint it. I removed the gaskets and liners from the doors to paint them. The doors have fiberglass insulation in them as expected of this vintage. The freezer door liner has one piece of insulation along the bottom and part way up the sides as shown in the picture. The liner for the fresh food door has no insulation in it. So I wondered if maybe the lack of insulation in the lower door and not having more than the one piece in the freezer door was to meet a certain price point for Sears?
I had the thought to add insulation in the crevices of both liners to better insulate them being sure not to cover the ventilation holes. But now Im wondering if the lack of insulation was to allow for better breathing behind the liners? And adding insulation might not be a good idea?
BTW...Im not happy with my painting results. I used Rustoleum appliance epoxy and applied with a foam roller. I thinned with Acetone hoping it would help in getting a smooth surface. It came out quite rough. I called Rustoleum and was told the appliance epoxy can be sanded and buffed but I don't think Im going to get that involved with it.
