SOURCE: Marvel 6bar-bd gets too cold - explodes soda can

I also have the same problem. Our Marvel 6BAR runs continuously until the beverages freeze. A technician came out and replaced the thermistor under warranty. It was a simple repair that anyone could do. This solved the problem for about another 18 months, but it has returned. I will now search for this part and do the repair myself. It only takes a few minutes to do.

SOURCE: Marvel 6BAR stopped cooling

I had the same issue after the unit was two weeks old. Marvel sent service people to service the unit, but they ultimately told me that the unit was not suppose to get any cooler because "of federal regulations" (I kid you not). I had to have an unaffiliated repair person remove the digital thermometer and put in a manual one. Now the unit cools well and I am pursuing Marvel for the $200 the service person charged me.

SOURCE: My 61ar marvel is freezing even with thermostat on

There are two main causes for this symtom...

Bad temperature control or low freon condition.

A low freon condition is caused by a leak and evidenced by heavy ice build-up on the left side of the evaporator plate and no to very little ice on the right side. This has to be repaired by fixing the leak and replacing the lost freon.

There are two different control systems used on the 61AR...before 2000 it was an electric-mechanical thermostat that had a sensing bulb exiting the back and routed to the top center of the evpaorator plate to sense plate temperaure. The part number for replacement is 42240590

The second control consists of three parts, a control board (SSAC Control), thermsitor and potentiometer. The most common failure is the thermsitor which senses temperature at the evaporator plate and reports it to the control board by varing it's resistance. You can buy a replacement kit that has all three parts or just the thermsitor from the factory by calling 800-223-3900. Write me a reply note if you need futher troubleshooting help. The thermsitor part number is 42244531 and comes with replacement instructions.

SOURCE: refrigerator operates properly for a few days then stops working

When you said it stopped working, do you mean it is not working at all? or is it not cold enough? If not working at all, that will be thermostat, when you change the thermostat, did you adjust the small switches to match you unit and make sure wires are connected properly, If not, it would work properly. If not cold enough, check and make sure the condenser fan motor and compressor are running, if both are running but not cooling then you have sealed system problem.

Marvel 6BAR Not Staying Cold


i don't know much about these units,don't work on them but work on sub zeros and have helped out some customers that have me look at them,usually what i find is when they are cool but not cold is the coil is blocked with dust and the heat can't escape from the machine,i use a shop vac,i vac out as much of the dust that i can see and then set it up to blow and blow out the coil,after doing this it usually works

Marvel 6BAR light does not illuminate. The bulb


More than likely your socket has a bad connection (probably the ground). There are two switches that can send the socket power...the door activaed switch and the manual override (ON/OFF button in the toe-kick). If you turn on the manual switch and the light is steady, then the door switch is bad. Otherwise I would trace out the connections on all the switches and on the back of the socket.

If light work but not running at all, then change the temp control (thermostat). If compressor and condenser fan motor are running but not cooling, then you have sealed system problem

The dip switches define the temp range. You have it set to the warmest. Try moving the next dip switch to move the range cooler.
