Question about Crosley CRS40 Manual Defrost Compact Refrigerators in White on White
Crosley Servidor; Model WRC17/E K3
This refrigerator's ledge at the back of the top shelf is icing up, even on the lowest setting, and so the drain plug is icing over. The appliance is 5 years old. The water collection tray under the bottom of the refrigerator is empty (because of the frozen drain plug), but some discolored water oozes out from under the bottom of fridge from time to time.
I called Maytag and Magic Chef, who makes Crosleys, and they said that they couldn't find the model number.
First thing I would suggest is to flush the drain line. defrost any ice in the drain and then flush warm water thru the line until it flows freelyif your having a hard time getting the line flushed out you may try using a large syringe or turrkey baster filled with warm water to forcfully flush water thru the line. this will most likely fix the problem.
you didnt mention if food was freezing in the refrig as well as the drain but there may be an off chance that the temperature control could be bad. since this is a manual defrost unit it depends on above freezing temps to help keep frost off of the cooling coil. if the temp control goes bad it will allow sub-freezing temps and possible drain freeze ups. so if the drain continues to freeze you will need to replace the temperature control.
if it comes to that, the control actually has a part number on it since maytag cant find your model number.
message me back if you have any further questions. thx peyton
