On the MCBR170 refrigerator the plastic clip the holds the the temperature probe to the bottom of the freezer compartment will break off and allow the probe to hang freely in the back of the fridge. This could be the problem with the refrigerator. I had this problem and used zip ties to hold the probe in the proper position.

This unit was produced by a company called E-Wave Number I found for them is 888-775-0202 (730 am-7 pm Central Time), I hope this helps. The back plate? I assume it has a hole? I would buy a new unit personally. Good Luck

Simply unplug the ice box.
The evaporator plate is thin and will spring a leak if you are scraping around. Just let it thaw out naturally.
