I have two Precision model 815 incubators which have been in operation for
8 years.  I use propionic acid in my fly food.   About five years ago one
of them developed  a corrosion induced perforation in the cooling coils, at
a week point in a soldered joint.  The refridgeration maintenance person
soldered the perforation and recharged the coolant.  He then pulled out an
aerosol can of enamel paint and spray painted the coils.  I haven't had any
trouble since.  The other incubator has not given any problems (but I can't
remember if the maintenance person painted the coils on that one too).
