Question about Scotsman RFE33 Compact Refrigerator
We do not use the freezer section of the RFE33 and tire of defrosting it. Can it be removed and still have the refrigerator work? If so, are there any precautions about removing it?
The cold is created in the freezer, that is where the evaporator is located, and the fan that blows the air to the refrigerator, is this unit a self defrosting model? If it is more than likely you can have the problem fixed for a reasonable fee

The defrost is not
working.This happens due to the evaporator coil in the inner section of freezer is got
blocked by ice .--------
Try manual defrost reset
First unplug the unit
from main power outlet. Then empty whole unit completely. Then keep both the
doors open. Wait for 24 hours. All the ice collected on the coils and in the
freezer section will get melted. Clean the water from the sections.
Then Connect the power cord of the unit to main power outlet after 24
hours/.Then set the temperature to normal in both fridge and freezer section.
It will take near to 4 hours to get run in its proper cooling cycle. Then check,
if the problem returns again. If the same problem occurs then it's defrost problem.
The defrost board and the defrost thermostat/heater is not functioning properly
and it has to be checked and replaced.
The procedure of this unit
is as follows: --- The compressor starts then it cools the freezer section.
When the freezer reaches its cooling level the defrost cycle starts functioning.
In this cycle the fan in the freezer section starts running and the cool air in
the freezer section is passed to the refrigerator section and the
refrigerator section gets cold. The air from freezer to refrigerator passes
from the section, in that section the damper is located. Now this problem which
you mentioned. In this problem the freezer thaws, this happens if the
thermostat is not functioning or the heater is not heating. Then the ice starts
getting collected on the evaporator coil. The evaporator coil
is at the internal section of freezer. If too much ice gets collected
then this ice blocks the fan in the freezer section from functioning and this
blocks the damper section with ice getting collected there. This all procedure
is controlled by the defrost board of the unit.
So first try reset procedure.If that is not helping then defrost assembly parts are to be checked and replaced.The defrost thermostat is located in the freezer section beside the evaporator coil.The defrost heater is located in the freezer section beside the evaporator coil.And the defrost control board is located in the fridge section.-------------
