    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.

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.

Frezzing up


Be sure you have the defrost timer set for 4 defrost cycles and no less than 30 minutes each time.
Make sure doors close and seal tight.
Verify that the defrost heaters work.
Sit and time a defrost cycle. It could be terminating early, prior to the coil being completely cleared.
If it is frost on the coil, could be an air leak or high humidity.
If it is icing, it is a defrost problem.
Start here and let me know.

Good Luck!

Thermostat differential on a Bev air ef48-1as


Having to manually defrost an automatic defrost system tells me there is a problem with your defrost timer. Most Beverage-air freezers have a Paragon timer. There are two dials on these timers. An inner and outer dial. On the inner dial is an arrow to indicate the direction of rotation as counter clock wise. On the inner dial is a copper pointer indicating duration of the defrost cycle.

Observe the copper pointer, no movement indicates that the timer is bad.
