There's a water catcher below the radiator when you thaw to catch the melted ice. Correct me if I am wrong.
Furthermore does yours have the propane option too?
Hi Mine is the dual - Elec/Propane.
The freezer part dose ice up - but I think that is common as it is not a frost free fridge.
I am more concerned with the fins inside the fridge that are icing up all the time. That is where I read somewhere that there is sometime of thermostat that is attached to the fins to control this. But mine never had one and I'm not sure where I can get one either.
For now I just empty the fridge once and a while throw the blow dryer in there and melt off the fins.
It never used to do this - but this past winter I forgot to turn the fridge off electric and had the door open for several weeks - I was heading out and noticed a big huge ice block all over the fins - ug - since then it is doing this icing on the fins deal - either elec or propane mode.
