Model Number: VCRB5301

 

 

There is frost accumulating on the back panel on the upper evaporator. I'm new to these DC based refrigerators. I'm planning on just checking to see if all the fans are running and to try a forced defrost.

 

How should I troubleshoot the problem? What should I expect?

 

What do you think could be causing the issue (bad heater, thermistor, etc.)?

I haven't had a chance to look at it yet. The ice keeps building further out. I noticed condensation on the small vent slits in the back panel coming from the evap. Do you guys think it could be a door seal issue? What should I look at?

 

Thanks
