Ok, the Beer side is warm:poison:, the freezer's back panel is all frosty; no air is circulating to the beer side.
The bottom vent is clear, the top had ice all on the freezer side of the bulkhead. I blew mucho hot air at this and it appears to have cleared the ice. I haven't removed the inside back freezer panel, but I think that given the total amount of frost covering it and the ice I could feel thru the lower vent, the coils are likely full of ice (as pictured in this borrowed picture http://applianceguru...ent.php?id=134.)
Questions about fans and other such:
o how many fans are inside the freezer and beer side?
o I hear a loud fan inside the freezer when compressor is running -- is that the evaporator fan? Should there be another, er, circulating fan located at the upper pasage to the beer side? I feel no airflow at the top of the beer side, esp. no cold air.
o How do I determine which (defrost system?) part(s) to replace on this model?
o What else needs to be considered to get this frigin' thing right?
o Is warm elk piss better than warm moose piss?? I need to know as I'll probably be drinking one or'tother during the super bowl tomorrow with this thing o'fritzing itself.
Happ me, please.
