frame removal 73 boler

Hello, I'm wondering if I have to remove the stove/fridge cabinet and the closet to get to all the bolts attaching the egg to the frame or just the front and rear cabinets?
Cheers

Our Boler only had front and back bolts, but I suggest you remove everything as to not damage the shell from weight of cabinets when you remove the support of the frame.

No you don't have to remove any cabinets but you do need to remove the fridge and the furnace as there are bolts or screws under them.

You will need to take the door off to access the screws around the front lip. I also believe there are 2 screws in the back that are accessed through the outside vent.

It looks like it has a metal shroud around the whole unit...slides out of that?

Should be similar to this (see page 7) 2 screws up into the upper frame, 2 through the lower frame and 2 into the floor through the outside vent http://www2.dometic.com/d2b969f8-552...dabd885e.fodoc

screws in the front should either go up through the frame or straight in through the frame. Sometimes the screws are hidden behind colored plastic plugs that just pry off.

No Frame bolts under my fridge. One in the sink cabinet by the heater but didn't need heater out to get at that one either. The difficult one for me was in the center of the floor under the lino.
I also was able to remove the sink cabinet without having to take out the fridge (which I have read isn't supposed to be possilbe ). I had to remove the door from the fridge (hinges stick out a bit more than the fridge) but the cabinet just slid out from there.

Good to hear, there is usually either a bolt or screws under the fridge, but as you noticed every Boler is a little bit different LOL.
Now the task of pulling the body, good luck.

Thanks. Lots of conflicting reports. Think i'll try it like you...Hate to get the egg up in the air and have it hang by one bolt.
Cheers
