Maintenance and care of a 1950's Kelvinator methanol based unit

Texte:

Hi all.
 
The husband and I have acquired a vintage fridge to restore (it was free..who can say no?) it is at least 60years old and still working. We have tried looking for information on the inner workings but not a lot seems to be on the net for these things. The refrigerant cylinder is labelled methanol.
 
As the unit is working is there anything we need do to ensure it continues or are there any precautions we need to take? It's hiding in the garage all switched off and drying out at the moment while we think about how to make it glorious.
 
The frame has the letters AS747 however. Don't know if that's a standard no. Or the model number.[image|1587157][image|1587159][image|1587158]number.

'''UPDATE 4th November 2018'''

so this is one of those “seemed like a good idea at the time” things. It’s slowly rusting, the power plug was majorly corroded when we checked on it way back when, so it’s off indefinitely. We would love to restore this for the man cave/garage.
