Construction in Thailand Is building in Thailand as bad as it seems? Can properties really be built and fitted out to European standards? Would you like to Build your own house in Phuket, or a swimming pool in Bangkok? Solar water heating in Pattaya? Or maybe you want to build a resort or guesthouse on Koh Samui? If you want to build a luxury house in Thailand then this is the forum for you.

Propane/LPG refrigerator

Does anyone know where I can buy one of these in Thailand (preferably South)? I've tried but to no avail. I also looked into importing one myself but I can't find a decent priced shipping company to receive and handle the customs... (unless you can recommend one of those who speak English)



Thanks

I think the sale of domestic ammonia absorption fridges ended 20 years ago so the chances of finding a secondhand one is slim.
You might be able to still get a commercial model but I expect that will be too big for you.

I think your best bet would be to try a boat builder, they might have a 3 way fridge.

They are probably still around but would suggest that they are somewhat dangerous (continuously lit pilot flame).
Assume you want to use one domestically because of power cuts?
If marine or trailer application definite no no....
Up to you but maybe better to use a 240v unit and try to keep the door shut... or get yourself a generator or inverter?

Thanks for the replies... my house is on an island with no permanent electrical power so everything is solar or propane. I did find a company in China via Alibaba (Coner Gas) that I can import from but it's been actually quite difficult to find a company to deal with the brokerage for a reasonable price. Price of fridge (~240L in size incl freezer) delivered to Bangkok is $500 USD but then the brokerage firms want $400 to receive it (just in fees! There's no Thai duty on this item), and then one even wanted another $1500 to deliver it to Ranong!

The fridge company did say they have shipped to Thailand before and have CE certification for it and they said they are currently in negotiations with a company here to actually distribute it but I am looking for something sooner than later.

I have a small solar system for lights, water pump etc, but to run a normal refrigerator I would have to upgrade it for quite considerable $ to run continuously... And a I have a good Honda generator but I can't run that all day/night. I'll check out the solar models on the linked page....

If you live on an island without reliable electricity, why do you not already have a generator?

OK, you have a generator......Missed the last sentence of the above post.

haha... thanks withnallstoke I was just about to respond the same. It wouldn't make sense to run a gas genny at night or even half the day... I live pretty basic when I am there (December to April) and do so because of the quiet.

Currently I have one of the ubiquitous large Thai ice cooler chests that I fill with 4 huge solid blocks of ice every 10 days... but lugging the ice up from the beach and keeping the water drained is getting old quick (just like me sometimes

The problem with imports is one has to go to customs then get the unit transported from the port then to the destination in Bkk etc. Could be the brokerage cost is the same for one as it is for 10!

BKK to Ranong should not be that bad if it is the same company that goes daily to, say, Phuket.

If you were handy you could try making an icy ball.

Home Built IcyBall

Perfect for off grid living.
Can be used for aircon also.

I am in a similar situation as BigBrosMo. There were some helpful links in the thread but most are dead now

I'm looking for a 3-way gas fridge - anyone know where in Bangkok I might be able to find one?

@BigBrosMo - which company was it that was planning on distributing here in Thailand?

Any help massively appreciated as I'm getting nowhere on my own....
