I have just gained an old finch fridge which has been passed down through family. It works perfectly but am needing a new gas line for it. I am lost on where to buy a new gas line for it. Can anyone help. I live in QLD.

Can you remove it?

Maybe call a crowd like this one and see if they can make up a replacement.

From memory the old finch Fridge was a 1/8bsp connection for the gas the easies way is to put a brass adaptor on the fridge from 1/8bsp female to 3/8sae male and buy a new regulator and hose and a 3/8sae is very easy hose to source, Gas components Australia have a place in QLD the fitting is a number 16 3/8 x 1/8 hope this helps.

You will find what you need at Supagas or BBQs Galore, take the fridge with you to avoid confusion.

Mine is 34 years old and still going as a drinks fridge and also on gas for a friend as he builds a house in the bush and uses the fridge. I bought a new gas lead from BCF as they had a whole array of sizes to fit the thread.

Hi Linda T1,
I can not answer your question re the gas line.
I inherited a Finch from my Father and found that if you run it on gas it works fantastic.
On 12v it consumes a lot of power.
