Question about Coleman Electric Cooler 40 Beverage Cooler
Which direction should the fan blow the air - should it be exhausting off the heat sink or blowing downward. I have ice building up inside the cooler. The cooler is new but I had fan fan blades break so I replace the fan with a 12 v brushless fan and now have this ice problem. The frig stays 20 degrees cooler than outside temp, but is building ice.
The fan should blow air into the heat sink. The warm air exits the
heat sink at both ends. (It might work the other way, haven't tried
When you have ice in your cooler, you know the thermo-electric element is working well--it's below freezing!
Ice builds up because there is water in the cooler. For example, in humid weather, you open the cooler, some humid air gets in, and the cooler temperature condenses the water. You have to empty this water, either by tipping the cooler, or using a sponge.
You can easily defrost the cooler by unplugging it for an hour or so. You know it's time to defrost when you hear the fan blades making a racket because they're hitting something--a thick buildup of ice.

I had a problem with ice build up also then discovered that the cooler fan needs room to breathe I moved objects out of its way then it worked great no more ice even with standing water in the bottom keep the inside motor clear. I also had a problem with the outside fan slowing down and not cooling, solution remove cover then remove fan from the backside pop out the blades with your thumb put a drop of oil in the hole where the fan shaft goes in works like new.
