Chefmate RS-06DR mini Fridge (1.6 Cubic Feet)

My Chefmate RS-06DR mini Fridge (1.6 Cubic Feet) stopped working.   I unplugged then plugged it back in, but it didn't help. The manuel troubleshoot section said the fuse might be blown.  How do i check and if it is, how do i change it?
THanks, Trang

    Bought this refrigerator less than a year ago and the refrigerator seems to not be working. It doesnt keep your food cold at all. This product is a peace of garbage! I will never purchase any chefmate products ever again because of its lack of quality.

  • Anonymous May 18, 2009

    The fan is giving some good indication that it is on its way out :( Cute fridge, but I agree that it is not well made. I've only had it 6 months, and it's already broken. UGH !

My chefmate is **** because the internal fan is garbage, its cheap, it doesn't work or give enough flow, try a higher flow unit. You can get the 12v at tigerdirect.com with some high flow (AND LIGHTS :) ) for a few bucks to save your 100 dollar investment. The removal of the orig fan is easy. The evap is a good setup, but the cooling setup for it seems to be sh*t. Cheap fans = cheap setup and this is why everyone hates these units cause it can't pump the goods.

For the record my fan died, so my evap and fan froze over completely and spoiled my food and burned out the fan completely and probably helped to short it. I can get it going if I flicker the fan with my finger but she is dead and can't catch naturally. You could replace the chefmate fan with most computer fans too... fyi if you got a junk tower laying around.

While your at it clean the fans on the back and take off the back panel which kicks out the hot air from the hot flow. It helps if your unit is older (a year plus+ in a dorm is like 4 in a clean house lol)

How do I calculate cubic feet of refrigerator


Normally refrigerators have stickers inside that state the cubic feet. If that's missing you must measure the width X depth X height to get cubic feet. WxDxH= cubic feet.

Don't know if this old fridge is worth saving.


Can't tell the age without the serial number, but it is a 21 cubic foot refrigerator. Plug it in, if it cools could be a good garage fridge.

I have a Roper refidgerator; can't find the serial or model number or name. Where is it?Can't find the fan that suposed to be located by the compressor, under the fridge, where is it? Works fine but has...


The model and serial number are usually located on one of the inside walls of your box. The condenser fan you are looking for is underneath the box. You might have to take some screws out from the back side of your fridge to access the fan, and coil. The coil must be clean for proper heat rejection. If you want to calculate the cubic feet multiply the hieght, width, and depth together. For instance a fridge that is 7ft tall x 3ft wide x 3 ft deep would be 63 cubic feet.

Spring came off freezer door on chefmate RS-06DR. Don't know to attache spring to freezer and door


I had that same issue - a little tricky to describe the fix, but here goes (very non-technical terms used here):

1) take the freezer door off if it hasn't already fallen off
2) unscrew the single screw that holds the plate (that the freezer door attaches to), onto the interior side wall of the fridge.
3) gentle ease the plate away from the fridge wall. It has some plugs that expand to keep in snug to the wall. Now that the plate is off you can work more easily with the spring and door.
4) The spring has 3 parts, the hockey stick end, the spring tube in the middle, and the u-shaped end. The door has a longer top guide (male) and a lower, shorter guide (male), and a tiny hole about 1/2 inch from the top guide. The plate has a bottom bracket (female), a top hole (female), and the top ledge that contains the top hole.
5) insert the hockey stick end of the spring into the tiny hole of the door while fitting the spring tube over the doors top male guide.
6) (this is the tricky part) - force the u-shaped end of the spring so it straddles the top ledge of the plate so that one part of the wire is above the plate and one part of the wire in below the plate.
7) while doing #6, the top male guide of the door should be inserted into the top female hole of the plate
8) snap the lower male guide of the door onto the female guide of the plate
9) you now have the door assembly intact. gently push the plugs of the plate back into the side of the fridge and screw the screw in.

It took me awhile to figure out, and the above instructions are from memory so if I got it a little wrong, you'll hopefully be able to figure it out. The keys were understanding where the spring fit and taking the plate off the fridge. Good luck.
