This is puzzling. My fridge/kegerator in the garage has developed a cooling problem. Back in August, she wouldn't cool at all (but the freezer worked fine), so I did a complete defrost- emptied, unplugged, opened doors, and left it that way for 24 hours or so. There was a decent amount of water in the catch pan, so I figured there was an ice dam between the freezer and fridge sections, not allowing the cool air to 'fall' into the fridge.
Plugged her in, and in about a few hours, she had no problem keeping a 38-40º range. Sweet, I thought, I just fixed the fridge!
Well, now she won't get below 45º, and my beer is foam city. My question- is it possible there is still an ice dam (because the freezer is still working fine), and that I need to do another complete thaw?
I've sealed up the places in the side where my shanks and Co2 line goes in, and there doesn't seem to be any leakage there. Nothing blocking the fan in the freezer, everything is clean, etc.
