    Kold-Draft has a new undercounter self contained that uses the same technology but has the evaporator slanted with a water plate that travels down 2", staying parallel with the evap. No swing so less space needed. Still has the same Big Square Cube.

    They keep making little tweaks with parts but basicaly the same.
    Lately the been through so many water pump styles I can't keep in straight and the latest water level sensors are floats. Looks like two marshmallows floating in a test tube lol

    Yes on the pumps...theyve changed them so many times. Now theyre this tiny tiny DC motor that has an inverter board that you mount and wire up with it

    i was sent on a call that they had numerous problems with, a couple different companies changing boards, floats, many parts, even a compressor, but it all ended up being install related, so i had the guys cell # so i could send pics and such, that could be why i never had a problem getting through. But i don't use that number for general question calls, and still have not had much problem getting through, i used to have that problem with manitowoc, by the time they would get back to me i would be three service calls down the road,they seem to be getting better too...

    I had one trick for KD to answer the phone not sure if it still works.
    Call them on the sales number and they would pick up every time with a coke and a smile!!
    Sales guy would patch you through with a guy for tech support and they didn't just patch you through to some VM system
