The 61 WC is a cycle defrost/plate sensing control. If your unit was manufactured before 2001 it will use an electric/mechancal thermostat that has a capillary tube that senses temperature. If it was made after, it will use a solid state control box that has a "thermsitor" sensing temperature and a potentiometer for user input (OFF through 7). If the unit runs constantly, and does not reach desired temperature...it is low on freon due to a leak. This will be evidenced by ice build-up where the freon first enters the evaporator plate and no where else. You will have to have a technician fix the leak and recharge the unit. Don't wait to long to ge this corrected. If the unit runs too long with a low charge it could draw air and contaminants into the system and the compressor will get damaged.
I hope this helps.

You can order a replacement evaporator assembly directly from the factory at 800-223-3900. I believe (working on memory here) the part# is 42244047 (for black) and 42244046 (for white) It comes with the suction line and capillary tube already brazed to the evaporator plate and comes with a new filter drier. They can also recommend a service technician in your area if you need one, They accept all major credit cards.

Testimonial: "I was told by Marvel, evaporator part is 42241493. (I provid serial) I hope they didn't miss this one... :-( :-( Thanks fr your support :-) "
If you can hear the compressor running and there is no cooling happening your unit has either lost it's refrigerant due to a leak or the compressor is completly worn out (or both). If you just hear the condenser fan running (air blowing), then maybe the compressor just has bad electricals (starting relay, overoad, run capactor) or it has developed a bad winding and will need to be replaced.
If you know you have lost refrigerant the repair will be quite costly and you should consider replacement. If you feel it is a failure of the small electrical parts for the compressor, repair would be more cost effective.
You can get further trouble-shooting assistance and order parts direct from the factory at 800-223-3900.
