It's high end residential stuff made in Norway. R134A appears to be their juice of choice.

thanks i found these pages also but, the one they asked me about is a marine one different voltages ac/dc and they were told that it does not use normal freon, i said i would look into it and asked some guys that work on all kinds of stuff and see what they have to say about it, its on a 50ft. boat and they were told a replacement was $4,000 so they are looking for alternatives to replacement like a repair and I'm not quite sure i want into this thing without any divine guidance

I think you mean Norcold. It is an AC/DC/propane fired absorption fridge. Like they use in RVs. Another common brand is Dometic.
Repair is done by taking out the cooling unit and getting another one from the handful of shops in the country that actually service these things.

if they have a 50 foot boat they can afford the new unit.
