Question about Refrigerators
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,

Check to see if the
condenser fan at the back underneath near the compressor is running. If no
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
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.
