A little history... Refrig was getting warm ... Diagnosed to be the cold control. Replaced with new part and refrig now cool (40- 42 Degrees at position 8) .

Iceberg has formed along back wall of unit ...

I have read the posts on the evaporator, but it seems coincidental that the evaporator would go at the exact same time as the cold control with no prior issues... NOTE: upon inspection, The evaporator fan was missing 1 blade

Want to ask 3 questions
1. What is the range of temp that I should be seeing in the refrig
2, Could this be caused by lack of "wind" due to the evap fan blade missing
3. Did I install the cold control "bulb" improperly (installed 1/2" below the evaporator at a 35-45degree angle )

I appreciate any suggestions that you may offer

thank you, we will be ordering the fan blade and a couple other items also

How's the Door Gaskets ?

Try the George Wa$h1ngton test.

Close the Door on George and take him for a ride around the Door Gaskets and check to be sure he stays snug.

Apologies for the long delay... haven't been able to get the unit apart completely to take a pic of the evap.. My wife keeps putting food and beer in there and it likes to be cold...

I can describe the situation, The Left side about 1/4 down from the top of evap is freezing up. The unit seems to run most of the time ... and there is condensation in the back ...

Fan was replaced and door seal seems fine.

Could I need a bump in Freon? Anyone in the Pro Team interested in coming by to fix... I am at the end of my ability and need help ..

thanks eric

I can be reached at 917-546-9294.. I am in CT my Zip code is 06883
