Question about Electrolux Refrigerators
I have some of those machines. What happens to them is that the evaporators, which are made out of steel, rust out in approx. 7 years. This allows the R134A to leak out. If you can peek back through to the back wall, you will see where the rust has run down. The solution is to order a new evaporator from Frigidaire at around $100.00 and get someone to change this out and recharge the unit. Before turning it over to the mechanic, you may want to remove the vending module which includes the inner doors and plastic shelves. This can be done in 15 minutes and makes the job easier for the mechanic which can save you money. You should end up with less than $300.00 for the total cost of the repair, but since these machines are rather popular, they can be had on ebay fairly cheap. Sometimes you can pick up new machines for five or six hundred dollars. These are the same as the Antares machines which are made by Edina. I hope this helps.

You need a new evaporator in your machines. The part you need is Part #AP4036412. Just type this in your search box and it will pop up. They run like a $154.00 This is the excate same thing that is in the machine. It will last approx last 7 yrs. I would suggest what I did and get one made in copper. This way it doesnt rust b/c of all the condensation. Good Luck!!

I have the same problem with my Antares vending machine. Do you know what the model number is on that Frigidaire freezer? I want to buy a new evaporator but can't seem to find it.
