Question about Coldtech CFD1R Stainless Steel Refrigerator
We have a Coldtech refrigerator in our concession trailer. The temp is high. When we plug it in, it clicks off and on like the compressor is trying to come on, Any ideas or suggestions? It's not even a year old. Today is Wednesday and we need it to be operational by Thurs. night. No one can get here before Friday and that just won't work. Please help. Thanks!
If the sound you are hearing is a noise like the old clickers we used to hold in our hands, it is probably the overload. If so, doubt you might get it fixed by Friday. The sound is probably the Klixon overload and it "clicks" to open the circuit because too much current is being drawn. Reasons for this:
1) Compressor is locked and is pulling LRA locked rotor current.
2) Starting mechanism is not operating correctly. (better this than locked pump)
Starting relay is probably solid state and changing this may fix the problem. But, further testing is going to be necessary.
Sorry, but it is not going to be something you can easily do.
If the clicking is something different, like the defrost timer. Easy fix.
However, I am afraid you have something more serious. Warranty should handle any of this. Compressor should have a 5 yr. warranty. But that does not help getting it going right away.
