So am in the process of taking the guts out of a small dorm fridge and at the onset looked like this was going to be a breeze. The "freezer" was in from of a plastic rectangle on the back wall that just to happened to be on the other side of a plate that is screwed into the outside back wall of the fridge behind the hot side evaporator. But..
I take the bkac plate off and get the insulation out the way and put the port hole out of the inside to find a hard pipe running fro mthe condenser to the freezer plate (good) and a soft tube that looks like it connects also to the condesor but instead of completeing the loop at the freezer plate it is running above the plastic liner into the insulation. The thermostat is in the middle of the fridge at on the top wall.Looks like this
Any idea of where that soft tube might be going and what is the best way to cut the plastic inner shell?
