I have the MCWBC77DZC dual zone beverage center and within the last two weeks the top zone has slowly been creeping up in temperature. Bottom zone stays cold at 36 degrees, but top will not get below 50. Both fans appear to be working. Anything else I should look for?

I would like to assume it's not the compressor because one zone still cools.

Hi,

Sounds like the UPPER fan motor went out. This is a Magic Chef Ewave product.

Another member had this same problem:

Yes, you'll need to check for 12 volts DC to the evaporator fan motor. If you get 12 Volts DC and its not turning, then its bad.

Here's the evaporator fan motor for your model you can order if needed:
Evaporator Fan Motor 312121800003

Fan is running. But looking through the vents in the back...I think I see ice. Is that supposed to happen?

Good!

That I don't know, but probably not. I couldn't locate the service manual for this model, hopefully another tech can shed some light on this problem.

Following up...I unplugged the unit and let it sit for a day. The drip tray over the compressor was full of water. I drained it out, plugged the unit back in, and it's working again.

I'm attributing the issue to a gap I found in the door seal and the warm air condensated and froze to block up the venting in the back of the unit.

Thank you for all your help, Jake.
