Who else has one of these?
If so, does your's sweat a lot at the dispensing area? Mine seems to have a lot of condensations in that area.

Yes, ours has a decent amount of condensation there. It is also in the garage which makes it worse due to no A/C.

Thanks.
I have mine in my basement where it is cool, but there is still a bunch of condensation. I can only imagine what it would be like in the garage! I guess it's 'normal' for these machines.
I try to keep mine dry as possible, I don't want any mold or anything growing there.

Mine's in the basement and I have it set at about halfway on the dial in terms of coldness. It sweats quite a bit too. I've had it for a few years now and no mold issues yet

Okay, cool. I'm glad I'm not the only one with this issue. It must just be the nature of the beast. Thanks for the info.

Mine didn't. But then again, my controller board went bad and one "no parts available from Maytag" later. . .it went back to Abt for a full refund (love you Abt extended warranty!).

Thinking about it a bit more, I did have a service call a year or so ago where the controller board had iced over. I wonder if they're related somehow in their cause.

Actually my buddy and I were just trying to figure out what is wrong with his, its no longer getting cold but to answer your question no, for the past 3 years it has never sweat a drop..

For those with problems, have you had the fans turned around? On many of them, they put the fan in backwards which caused freeze-ups and lack of cooling.

I was lucky enough that one time the service guy had ordered a dispensing unit to try to fix something and found that it was something misaligned and he did not need it. He asked if I wanted the dispensing unit (essentially the entire guts of the thing including the controller in one piece and of course, I was like heck yeah) Since then I have not had one single problem though.

Now my machine constalnly jams up. I'm using 12oz cans, loaded them as instructed, but it still jams up constantly. Even if one ejects properly, the next time I press the same slot, it will jam. Very frustrating.
I've resorted to just opening up the thing and taking a can out the old fasion way. Defeats the whole purpose of getting one of theses things, though.
