    Thanks for trying. I am aware I can call the number in the service manual.

    Is there someone else who has more Commercial Freezer experience rather than consumer electronics?

Unplug the fridge overnight and defrost it completely. Ensure the thermostat is properly set.

If it does not restart normal function after you plug back, then there may be a fault concerning the digital control, in that case call the number listed on the owner manual.

    As suggested try first unplugging the frdge for a while, if it does not work, there are several possible faults, concerning the digital control board and other parts that can cause this.

    I do not have schematics for commercial units of this kind, call Beverage Air at 1-800-684-1199 from the USA or 1-864-582-8111 for areas outside of the United States

    Well, I have some, I only told you I do not have schematics. I guess
    there are differences in part locations between this model, and the Jenn Air, Arctic and similar that I
    have seen.

    Check my curriculum.



    By the way, since you do not appreciate my help I wont comment anymore.



    Goodbye and thanks.

    I will post a last comment,

    this is a three years old fridge, the compressor should still have life, but if it is failing the unit won't get on freeze mode.

    I think that also a failing thermostat can prevent the unit getting to low temperatures.

    An inefficient evap. system can also prevent the unit from entering "freeze mode".

    This seller has all the parts for Beverage Airs.

    They can also provide you with more specific advise by Email, or Phone.

    As usually, all repairs must be done by qualified personell.

    If you supply model number I can see if schematics are available.

    I hope this comment had been of some help.

    Regards.

Because the freeze control board might be not working.
check them by using a voltage meter.
Thanks for using FixYa.

How lpw of a temp. Can this freezer reach..and and if only 0 degree could the thermostat temp control be changed out so it could reach les than 0 temperatures like negative 20 or so?


There are different models made for holding different products. Yours has a 1/3 hp compressor for above 20 degs. It may have 0 on the thermostat and may well pull down that far, but -20 would be out of it's reach. Where as it's sister model is made to freeze to below zero has a 3/4 hp compressor. Larger compressor for the lower temps.

In my opinion, since your going for the fast freeze mode, your freezer sets to its lowest operating temperature to fast tract the freezing process.

and about the noisy clicking sound it is probably a thermostat or relays depending on your system which starts and stop the compressor.

i think your freezer is just doing fine.

Freezer does not go into defrost cycle


first, check defrost timer function, then check heater functions. Is power making it to the heaters? Does the heater have continuity? How long, if at all, does it stay in defrost? Some unit have a defrost terminator, and, when it fails, it will go in and out of defrost instantly.,. Start there my friend.

Hi, It really doesn't mean that there is something wrong with it, but then again even though it is only a couple of years old something may have went wrong. The control thermostat could have a problem with it as this is what senses the temperature and turn the unit off and on. I would say that if it pulls down to temp. and shuts off and back on again in that short of time, something does not sound right. Make sure that the door gaskets are in good shape and the doors seal tight. You may need to clean the condenser fan coil which is in behind unit, you will have to roll the unit out and gain excess to it. It could be located in the bottom front or even on top as this is more like the commercial units.We call this short cycling when they go on and off this often. A freon leak could also cause this. I know its only a 2006 model, but these things can happen. When they go on and off like this, they are trying to maintain the thermostat set point. Check to see if its not loosing air somewhere and the condenser coil is clean first. If it continues, get back to me and we can go from there.
Sincerely,
Shastalaker7
PS Make sure the fan is coning on in the freezer. When you open the door, it may have a door switch that shuts it off so you will have to tape it or hold it down to check the fan or fans when door is opened.
