Is there a drain?

Is there a bottom drain to drain the water out if you throw ice in this thing?

Where do I get a new thermostat? Stopped cooling with setting on 7 and everything is still running including the fan.

Asked by: Shelty
Ours did the same. We got two years out of it. I called American Retro. There are no replacement parts. I called an appliance repairman and was told the condenser is packed in foam and therefore not repairable. I called American Retro again kindly asking for a discount on a replacement. No deal. Too bad they do not have better service - it is a really cute machine. We thought of purchasing an antique one in poor condition and changing the panels. This would take the value away from the antique but old machines can always be repaired. They do not have the foam. They are like the 1940's refridgerator I have, still running. Amazing appliances back then. To answer this truthfully, you are out of luck. With that said, I am purchasing another one but this time with a 3 year Home Depot warranty. If you live in an area with a Hammacher Schlemmer. They have a life time warranty and offer the same machine. Returns would be easy for you. It is a pricey vintage item, over priced because it is so poorly made, repairs are almost if not impossible but with that said, I have to try it one more time. Buy the warranty! That makes this short lived machine around $800 :(

80-Can Coca-Cola Refrigerated Machine is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 62.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from I have had this cooler for 3 years. Then it stopped cooling. Trying to find someone to service ... I have had this cooler for 3 years. Then it stopped cooling. Trying to find someone to service this machine was 99% impossible. EVERYONE said "we dont service that". 1) The FREON is the old style freon - i.e. VERY EXPENSIVE. 2) the coils are integrated into the side of the interior lining. Which means, if you have a leak, you can not remove the coils to repair them. You can not remove the coils to replace them. (this was my problem). The company - American Retro sells limited parts (compressor, relay swtich, thermostat) THATS IT. They do not sell the filter dryer. I called over 14 service companies in south florida and then all said the same thing. Finally a friend of a friend who does refrigeration repair came over as a favor and said "i'll take a look at it". Diagnosis - coils corroded. Which means - I am OUT OF LUCK. STAY AWAY unless you want to convert it to holding ice instead but note: there are no drain plugs.

Broke after 18 months. 10 refrigerator repair men said it can not be fixed. Coils are built into the styrofoam walls and have a leak. Was told to convert it to an ice chest. Was told its mass produced in China and shipped to USA. STAY AWAY!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks great! Time will tell on the refrigeration system. Love the look and quality of the cabinet and paint. Not too crazy about the cheap condenser and compressor. I'm planning to add the 3 year extended warranty for $130 which must be done within 30 days because I don't think the refrigeration system will make it that long. Temperature dial range is 1-7 with 7 being the coldest. I have had it on maximum 7 for two weeks and it keeps the drinks at a steady 40 degrees. I would prefer 34-38 degrees. My guess is that it was shipped low on refrigerant. I'm normally not a fan of extended warranties, but on this machine you can't go wrong with the additional $130 for 3 years peace of mind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly Satisfied The main reason I purchased this from Home Depot was if I have problems with it the ease of returning it to local store. That said. I received the coca cola machine in a very timely manner. Unpacked it and read the instructions and followed them to the letter in setting it up. After 24 hours put in precooled cans (24). Added more the next day (24) without precooling and it cooled them in about two hours. The only drawbacks are it is a little loud when cycling but got use to it and wish there was a way to lock the wheels after putting in place instead of removing them. Other than that it works fine. I also found a $75 coupon online.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not perfect... The first cooler we received had a dent and scratches...sent back and the second one had 2 dents but no scratches. Don't expect a perfect product- motor is loud - If it wasn't for the cool retro look I would have sent it back...a lot of money for something new with imperfections.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great product after fixing it Have had the cooler for two years. Like other reviews, the unit ran constantly and wouldn't cycle off and on. The drinks did seem to get cold. I adjusted the thermostat, but even at the warmest setting, the unit stayed on. I bought an access valve to test the Freon pressures last week. The low pressure is supposed to be around 5. It measured -30. I added r-134, available at any automotive store, to the proper pressure. The high pressure tube is now hot and the low pressure tube is cold like they are supposed to be. It now cycles off and will stay off for a long time indicating good insulation. It appears that mine and maybe others may have been shipped with low Freon. It looks great and now runs great. An easy fix for most.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks good This product looks wonderful, however it is not energy efficient, perhaps not well insulated (hate to see my electric bill) constantly runs even when filled and everything is cold.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice reproduction No assembly required. The only negative thing is the color is slightly darker then original Coca Cola Jr coolers. It looks great in our man cave / TV room with others Coke items. HD had the best price on this cooler. It's great that it has wheels because we can move it to the kitchen area for parties. I normally don't buy reproduction Coke stuff but this is an exception and worth it. It's so nice my wife allowed it in the house ha ha.
