should i remove the cover plate at the back of the freezer first, or just use the blower on the area at the trough at the back of the freezer without removing the cover plate?
I removed the ice tray and used the hair dryer on the tube externally (just blew air on the tube from outside the rear cover) for about 10 - 12 minutes so far with no result. Maybe it wasn't enough hot air for enough time. Hard to tell. I do not have a voltmeter here at home. i'll have to borrow one from where i work. that will take til much later today or maybe even Monday, so I'll have to continue tonight or Monday after i get a voltmeter, unless there is something else i can do in the meantime, we'll have to stop here. Thanks for the advice so far. I don't know exactly when, but I will continue diagnosis after I get the meter. I have not used your (this on-line) service before, so I don't know how your fees work. You may charge me for the advice so far or bill me after I get the voltmeter. Let me know what you think about trying the hairdryer longer, and what you policy is for billing. Thanks again.
