True t-49 temperature control problems

I installed a new 831932 temp control and still have the same problem I had before replacing it The dial is set at 1 or 2 and the temperature will get too cold 25-27 degrees. If i adjust the dial the tiniest bit,( like barely moving the knob), then the temp will go too high . So the temp control is controlling the compressor, but the temp ranges from 26-37 do these temp controls need calibrated?

SOURCE: Replacing a temp control valve on a true GDM 26 commercial refridgerator

Unplug the unit & remove the plate holding the thermostat. The capillary for the thermostat will go into a very small tube that runs into the evaporator coil. You will probably not be able to see the tube but will have to feel for it and get a good orientation for where it is located before you pull the capillary out. Try to measure the amount of capillary in the tube as you pull it out so you know how far you have to push the new one in and put some kind of tape or mark on the new capillary before you try to push it in. you might have to soap up the capillary to get it to slide easier.

SOURCE: Freezer quits working

Solution Found! The problem is when the temperature surrounding the refrigerator in the garage falls to < 45 degrees, the thermostat regulating the refrigerator will not call for the compressor to kick in to provide cooling (it's temperature requirements are being met). Since there is no demand, the compressor will not cycle, which is how the freezer is kept cold, and the freezer eventually warms up to match the refrigerator temperature. Frigidaire makes a "Cold Kit" that I ordered and installed from RepairClinic.com for $22 (Item #: 1037646; Description: Garage kit). It's basically a strip heater that runs off the control power to warm the thermostat and causes the compressor to cycle once to twice a day to keep the freezer frozen. After installation, the refrigerator stays at 40-45 and the freezer stays around 0 degrees.

T-49 warm in the morniing, but then works fine all day


Sounds like you are letting the refrigerator sit in an unheated space at night. Those refrigerators have minimum temperature ratings as well as maximum temps. True Mfg. Can be more specific but I say not under 60deg F. Good luck hope this helps.

True T-49 refrigerator/freezer temperature calibration


Contact the manufacture, it is most likely going to be covered under warranty. If the knob is not removable, (check for a set screw on the side of the knob it will take a small allen wrench) Then the thermostat (temp controller) will need to be replaced, if it isn't a style that you can calibrate.

True t49g side by side not defrosting


True's T-49G is not equipped with a defrost timer as it is a medium temp unit, so I would suspect the temperature control may be defective. Part #800393 is commonly used for the True T-49G, though it's best to check verify with model number and serial number. It could also be as simple as adjusting the temperature dial a little bit. The target temperature range is around 36 degrees Fahrenheit.

True cooler frezzing kegs of beer


If I am not mistaken, the True line-up of coolers have a temp control on them that is labeled 0-9.

This particular type of temp control is a coil temp control. I measures the temperature of the coil rather than air temperature.

Always set the control to the warmest setting and move it colder by one number at a time until your product reaches and holds designed temp. Do not go by cooler air temperature as there will be a great swing in temp especially if the doors are used frequently. Always temp the product. In the case of beer, your ideal holding temp is between 35-38°.


If you set the temp control to the warmest setting and the cooler is still freezing product, you will need to have the cooler serviced be a refrigeration tech. It will most likely be a bad control but there may be underlying problems.

True TS-49 Refrigerator freezing food


NEWER T-49 s DO NOT HAVE ANY DEFROST HEATER OR TIMER OR CUTOFF'S All solutions involving repairs on these items are bogus. The defrost occurs when the compressor shuts down normally. During this time,since the fan never stops, it should circulate above freezing air around the coils and a slow defrost may occur. It is a poor system at best, and does not work well if the compressor runs a lot. MY erratic cooling was fixed by removing the copper sleeve and cold control probe from the evaporator(cold coil on top) Polish up the copper tube and the probe, reinsert and bend the copper sleeve very slightly so that it fits snuggly into the evaporator. Mine was very loose and not making good contact with the metal evaporator, giving erratic control of temperature.. Good Luck!!
