Refrigerator Update... Yikes Again.

I'm a day late on this post, but here it is.

A couple hours after turning off the fridge, we started cleaning it. I was working on the top freezer portion, when I came across this mysterious panel attached to the bottom. It was attached by two screws on either side. I could tell it was dirty under there, and when pushing down on it I could feel ice give way. I had to see more...

I grabbed my trusty screwdriver and went to work. My heart rate grew as the screws twisted out. I have a bit of a fear of mold; it grosses me out. I cautiously lifted the panel off, and BAM! Mold and other general frozen grossness!

Well, I survived the cleaning with some help from the roomies. Under the panel, I found a vent of sorts that leads into the fridge section. The vent was blocked by solid ice. I think it's safe to say this was the root of the problem. A day later, the whole thing works fine again. The freezer isn't too cold, and the fridge isn't too warm. Problem solved.

Edit: 4-10-08.
If you think this is gross, check back this weekend when I take on my next project...

Rest assured my frozen Hungry Man microwave dinner will never go brown again.
