Magic Chef RB19HA-1A refrigerator cooling coils freezing up, both compartments warm, requiring defrost every 10 days. It was turned off for 10 hours, and this has appeared. Ran fine for 5 years, till forced power loss. Has been defrosted 5 times in 9 weeks, with associated food loss. How do I force a QUICK MANUAL defrost with internal heater, which I think inoperative. Timer may have failed. Any short term or long term fixes much appreciated. Where is timer located? This is an apartment, with an unresponsive landlord. Moving not an option.
It sits on top of a very poor floor the landlord installed, himself. Sliding over floor may rip out lenolium. Have found manual at : Replacement parts for MAGIC CHEF RB19HA-1A REF - TOP MOUNT | AppliancePartsPros.com
This manual is dated 9/88 indicating a probable age of 22 years, on refrigerator.
How do I remove plastic liner to the freezer compartment. There is small white plastic insert where the single screw, must be located on top of fan plenum on vertical rear wall. Looks easily shattered, if forced.
