The best is to check the wires at the compressor start device to make sure it has 120v and if it does the compressor is bad and if it doesn't the replace the themostat.

Not freezing enough


You might have ice building up on your evaporator coil. That ice serves as an insulator and prevents the internal freezer temps from going down to design parameters. The ice buildup is caused by the defrost mechanism not working - check the timer or the defrost heating element.

Display not working


Hello Lan Sutton - Since the unit is now not cooling, when was the last time you cleaned the condensers? You may do so by removing the toe grille and use extended vacuum attachment and condenser cleaning brush to remove dust buildup from condenser coils usually located on the left side underneath. If you hear the compressor running and if it is providing warm air then that means it is operating correctly and the sealed system is removing heat from the cabinet. Fan motor/evaporator or control board may be the primary issue. However, if you do not hear the compressor and the unit is blowing room temperature then the unit may possibly have a sealed system leak, faulty compressor or overload relay. Contact a professional to move forward accurately from this point.

Hoshizaki water dont stop runing


float switch is stuck in the "down" position. The unit goes thru a fill cycle and after 1 minute, the board "Looks" at the float swith to "see" if the sump is full. If float is stuck down, it tells the board that the unit does not have enough water and stays in the fill cycle. The compressor will not come on as long as the machine "thinks" there is not enough water. let me know if I can help further

Solenoidvalve not open


The cooling plate is icing up, sounds like the defrost element has failed, (Fan is hitting ice, hence the noise when shutting door) if there is ice building-up in the rear of the unit, either the defrost timer or defrost element has failed, Defrost the unit for 2 days with door open and NO FOOD inside. turn the unit back on, will work fine for a few days/weeks then return to problem. Solution points to Element, timer or thermo fuse, not costly to repair any of these,. Estimate $90-$120.Any further problems. Let me know PLEASE. Russ

Freezer compressor gets hot


Check behind and underneath for dust buildup, sounds like your compressor needs cleaned on the outside, the dust is causing it to overheat and retain condensation, hence the ice buildup. Easy thing to check, good luck.

My beverage air refrigator ri18 compressor turns on sounds like it works but doesnt get cold


1) Check the compressor working or not.. Air cooling type condenser fan may be not working properly.
2) Compressor working but not properly. Last side of condenser (Filter) Light Heat or not.
3) Inside Cooling area do not get cooling. may be gas leakage problem.
4) My opinion check Gas pressure Low and high side.
