Question about Traulsen Refrigeration 48'' Wide x 24'' Deep Reach-In ''Ultra'' Wine Refrigerator With 2 Clear Blac...
We purchased our Traulsen Ultra Side By Side Freezer/Refrigerator (incl ice maker) in 1993. We were away for 3 days over New Years and returned to find that all the food in the freezer section had thawed. The ice cubes in the ice maker drawer had fused together in a lump. Refrigerator section was normal temperature. We tried reset and fiddling with the two temp dials, as well as turning the two switches on and off. After a couple of minutes or maybe more, we noticed the temp in freezer beginning to drop AND the fan was working. We were relieved, until 4 hours later, the temp began to rise again and the fan was off. It appears the freezer is doing a very dramatic temp up and down cycle. Any suggestions or ideas? We are in a rural area and have asked the local appliance man to come out Monday but he didn't sound like he really had ever dealt with such a high end fridge/freezer (it was rated as a commercial unit when we bought it and we gather from info we found on the site that they don't support such units any more. It is 15 years old BUT it cost $10,000 back in '93 so we hope we don't have to replace the whole unit. Thanks in advance for any help!
I'm not intently familiar with this particular brand, but here's some ideas to check. If the thermostat sticks on, the freezer coils can freeze, blocking air flow and jamming circulation fan. This will cause the temp in freezer compartment to rise. When the ice on the coils thaw, the compartment starts to cool again, but the cycle will continue. Another thought is if this unit has a defrost timer that could be defective. Without seeing the unit, it's hard to determine the exact cause.
Hope this helps.
