Service Manual for Chefmate BC-50A Mini-Refrigerator?

Can anyone help me locate a service manual for a Chefmate BC-50A mini-refrigerator? Mine is dead (no cooling, no fan, when plugged in) and I was hoping to repair it myself. Thanks!

SOURCE: I punctured the freon channel

you have to bring it for repair.
the repair that they would do if they know how to is to weld the puncture hole by aluminum brazing , they may want to check the oil in the compressor in order to be sure that no water have been sucked by the compressor from the hole in the evaporator.

evacuate the system and charge it with the right amount of the correct refrigerant.

tnx 4 using fixya,

SOURCE: Need a service/repair manual for a Kenmore refrigerator.

Check to see if the condenser fan at the back underneath near the compressor is running. If no check fan.
Is the evaporator fan in the freezer running. It blows cold air into the fridge side through a damper in the wall between the freezer and fridge. Make sure the damper is open.

Below the evaporator fan is the evaporator coils. Remove the back cover in the freezer to observe the frost pattern. Light frost everywhere(NORMAL) or a partial pattern of ice(LOW ON FREON) or nothing(LOW FREON OR COMPRESSOR PROBLEM).

How to check everything
http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/refrigerator.php

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat

You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

Will not cool light does not come on when door is open Chefmate Model: BC-50A


unplug, take the back cover off.
Look at the circuit board.
at the top right of the board there is a fuse.
if it is blown, the frige is dead.
you will probily find that there is a brown burn mark
on the upper left side of the circuit board under an aluminum
heat sink. that electronic part probily overheated and blew up.
unless your electronics skils are up to it throw the frige away.
but if you are up to it unsolder it, bring it to frys electronics, and
get a new one. Good luck.

Settings for a chefmate refrigerator.


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)
