SOURCE: I have the same problem

You need to contact Frigidaire Parts Division. You need an evaporator for their EDINA Model FMR7. The part number is 216701200. It should cost approx. $100.00. This should be all you need. Good luck.

SOURCE: Antares Vending Machine Leaking water

You probably have a clogged water drain or the water pan under the machine is full of dust or dirt, look for the drain (small tube or hose usually in the back) inside or outside of the appliance, than unclog it by forcing a cleaning solution in it (water and vinegar), if the clog is too hard, you can push a small flexible wire in the tube all the way to the bottom starting from the top, or the tube is broken/cracked...

Good luck!

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.

Skybox will nat cool below 40 degrees

The likely cause is a heavy frost and ice buildup on the internal evaporator plate behind the dispensing unit. Unplug the unit and open the door for 24 hours. Plug the unit back in, reset the thermostat to the 11:00 position.

Vending machine issues

Only the fan at the compressor turns on and off with the compressor cycle. The evaporator fan runs steady to maintain air circulation and temperature balance and to affect evaporator defrost in the off cycle. Sometimes the condenser fan will run continuously to assist in the evaporation of condensed moisture from the evaporator drainage.
