Question about EuroCave Performance 283 Wine Cellar
I have ice building up on the back wall, I get rid of it and 2 days later it's back. What is causing this build up? How can I prevent this from happening?
remove back panel inside freezer. you will see drain tray at bottom with a drain hole in the middle - this is blocked usually with ice. melt off with a hairdryer and follow up with hot water till water flows away freely

SOURCE: ice build up
Check that the door is closing properly otherwise the freezer will be working overtime to cool and ice will form. If the door seal is good, it is possible that the thermostat needs to be checked.

Generally, icing is the result of too much water vapor inside the unit, blockage of the circulation channels and too much packing in of the box. The water vapor is generally caused by: uncapped items in the fridge, opening the door too often, humid conditions, bad door seals. There is of course, there is a possibility that the defrost cycle on the unit is not working. About once a day, depending on the brand, you should notice that the fans and compressor don't run and you should hear a bit of creaking, sloshing or other strange noises as the ice melts. If this is not happening, your defrost timer or the coil it heats could be bad.

your condenser fan may have gotten stopped up with ice. You can try to open the freezer door and push the door buttons while the compressor is running and you should be able to hear the fan running in the freezer compartment. If not you can try to completely defrost the machine by unplugging it and letting it sit for a day, you can speed that up by putting a hair dryer on low and point it at the cold air outlets. If it does it the next day you can pull the condenser fan. usually the whole back plate in the freezer has to come out and then the fan is right there. try spinning the blades by hand , should turn easy, you can try oiling it but it should be replaced, you can order it at the appliance store, take it with you. be careful while you have that inner cover off as the coils are sharp and fragile.
