Question about LG GC-051SS Compact Refrigerator

Open Question

My Chefmate BC-50A Semi-Conductor Mini Refrigerator is constantly having problems. About every week and a half or so, I have to fix the fan because it has iced over to the point of almost not working. Is there anything I can do to fix it on a more permanent basis?

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.

SOURCE: will not cool light does not

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.

Chefmate mini fridge no more


OK If this is a U-line refrigerator. Is the compressor running? The Fan? If both are running then you will have a sealed system issue. If nothing is running then it goes to the thermostat. Bypass the 2 wires from the thermostat to see if it runs.Yes, then replace the thermostat.

Chefmate RS-06DR mini Fridge (1.6 Cubic Feet)


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)
