I just bought a tank, it came with a chiller, which appears not to work. I am wondering if it is possible and if it is, where would one take a chiller to see if it is repairable? Anyone have any ideas?

Most appliance repair shops that work on fridges can fix them. You might find that you don't even need the chiller in your setup. You may want to try running the tank without it and see how it goes.

Has the chiller been tipped? Most appliances that have refrigerant needs to be set upright for 24 hrs before use. It’s a thought.

Ya, I dont have fans right now, and I did look forward to the ease of a chiller as it came with the tank, figured maybe if it was cheap enough it may be worth the fix. Also, Im sure it was tipped at some point, but it has been sitting upright for a few weeks before I actually got it set up.
