The EC-23 machine. If it is making the clicking sound . Unplug it empty it. unscrew the 6 screws holding the back on. You will see a couple of circuit boards. You want to repair the upper right board. It has a 1000uf 13.4 volts Capacitior that has failed. You can unsolder it remembering where the negative side is and positive side. Replace it with a 1000uf and any voltage above what the cap says. Never go under the voltage specified. I put a 45v 1000uf. I found these at Radio shack. Put the new one in. Put it back together and your good to go. Most important is to put the new Cap exactly the same way keeping in mind negative and positive. I don't hope it will work. I know it will work!. lol Follow my direction and the machine will be like new.

compressor is not starting . you might try a 3 in 1 booster pack.

Only the fan at the compressor turns on and off with the compressor cycle. The evaporator fan runs steady to maintain air circulation and temperature balance and to affect evaporator defrost in the off cycle. Sometimes the condenser fan will run continuously to assist in the evaporation of condensed moisture from the evaporator drainage.

From what I remember, no parts are avable for repairs. They don't want you to fix, they want you to replace.

If the fan is running then the problem is most likely the Peltier junction cooler.It will have to be replaced.

The noises are a sign that the power source is overstressed by a short and it goes in and out of protected mode. Before replacing it you must find out if the short is on one of the other components or the psu itself: disconnect it from your device and start it alone - if it still makes the noise or the voltages on its outputs aren't ok then it's definitely dead.
Yes, it can be replaces with one, but you will have to modify the connectors and the wiring.

hello. these are neat little fridges arent they. your situation is normal and you can let it leak as it is or you can follow the maintenance routine outlined herein:

Periodically you will need to remove, clean and dry the tray where the cans fall onto when dispensed. This will require more frequent attention in humid conditions. High humidity will also cause condensation inside the unit that should be wiped up with a dry cloth. When cleaning, turn off the power switch and disconnect the power cord. Vacuum out the ventilation grills on the back of the unit. Use only a damp warm cloth and a mild detergent for cleaning. Avoid the use of harsh cleaning agents and solvents. If storing the Vending Machine please switch off the power, disconnect the power cord, then clean and dry it thoroughly.
