Question about True T-49 Side by Side Refrigerator Commercial

1 Answer

Is the True T-49 prone to problems?

I am in need of a commercial refrigerator.  I am looking at the True T-49 unit.  However, I noticed a lot of problems on this discussion board.  
1) Is this abnormally high for this model?
2) Would you recommend I should buy this or stay away from it?
3) Do you have a recommendation for a different refrigerator?  I have somewhat of a tight budget.

I believe you will be fine if you purchase any True, Trawselson, Delfield, or Hobart reach it. These are all name brand and I have seen them last for years.

Seal Gaskets

Generally if you are using the factory seals you never have a problem unless you've damaged the retainer that holds the dart. After market gaskets wont work as well it has to do with the magnet strength, thickness, etc. call True in St Louis if you have to, to get the supplier. Good luck, hope this helped.

Hello, experts! My TRUE T-49 side-by-side refrigerator collects water inside. The clear tube at top rear inside appears full. I hope to get some info before I disassemble anything. Help? ...

A lot easier to remove the bottom grill - four screws - two on each side. The drain tube runs down there and is usually strapped to the bottom of the unit over a pan. Doesn't take much pressure to **** or blow into that tube and clear the obstruction. If you haven't looked undedr there clean the condenser coil while you're at it.

Hi there, We have 2 T-49 refrigaretors , but

Whoever sold you the refrigerators should have a parts department where they can order certain parts for any unit. If they don't have it or can't get it, I've found that has pretty much every part for True refrigeration that is still being manufactured.

True t-49 refrigerator

Yes it can. You would have to call a service company to recover the refrigerant, remove the oil in the compressor. They would then replace the oil as well as the refrigerant. The metering device would also need to be changed, along with the thermostat.
