This invention relates to improvements in re

apparatus of the portable type particularly adapt

ber adjacent the front edge of the shelf and a
carriage ‘slidably mounted on the guide member,
being understood that in the practice of this in
vention we employ any evaporator of the shelf
said carriage being provided with ice tray release
mechanism.
Another feature of the invention is the provi
type, that is, any evaporator including a sub 10
stantially flat imperforate shelf. One of the fea
tures of this invention is to make the shelf sub
sion of an apron in front of the evaporator shelf,
said apron carrying the guide member above men
tioned. This apron is preferably made removable
stantially the same size and shape as a horizontal
We shall use the nu
to support ice trays with a transverse guide mem- - meral I2 to indicate the evaporator in general, it
to facilitate cleaning and repair. , The apron may
also support a thermometer.
Another feature of the invention is a vertical
removable plate mounted above and in front of
the evaporator shelf, in front of the ice trays to
20 conceal the same from view when the door is
open, and provide better cooling of the ice trays.
Means are provided for swinging this plate up
wardly and backwardly to a horizontal position
to permit removal of the ice trays from the evap
25 orator shelf and under the plate.
Other features and advantages will appear
more fully as we proceed with our speci?cation.
In that form of device embodying the features
of our invention shown in the accompanying
30 drawings—Fig. 1 is a view in front elevation of
the food compartment of a refrigerator; Fig. 2 is
a similar view on an enlarged scale of the upper
cross-section of the food chamber In and locate
said shelf near the top of the chamber so that
there will be a small compartment Illa. above the
shelf for theaccommodation of ice trays ll.
In front of the evaporator, across the front
of the foodcompartment, there is provided a re
movable apron 2|, the ends of which are bent 20
at right angles as indicated by 22 and provided
with holes 23, 23 to receive the pins 24, 24 in the
walls of the food compartment. Springs 25, 25
serves to center the apron on the pins and permit
removal of the same from the refrigerator by 25
pressing the same to one side against the com
pression of one of the springs until the pins on
the other side are released.
