Question about True 31 cu. ft. / 878 liter Commercial Freezer TR-31F

2 Answers

Convert freezer to refrigerator

I just bought a T-23F Model true freezer. I would like to make it work as a refrigerator not a freezer. Is there a way to do this? What parts do I need? I was thinking I would have to just replace the thermostat. Thanks for your help!

    Ya, it sounds wierd but my dad bought it from a auction company that didn't really say what it did. So he wanted a fridge not a freezer so we are kind of stuck with it for now:)

Converting a freezer to run like a fridg can be done ,however it is sometimes tricky. you have to replace the thermostat, you will also want to shorten the defrost time setting. and may have to disable the fan delay to let the evaporator fans run all of the time, to prevent short cycling of the compressor.

You may be able to turn it down to its lowest setting to get what you want it to do. i have never heard anyone that wanted to make a fridge out of a freezer before now.

That 8141-00B is a Paragon timer model number. If you get the identical one you can just mark the numbers down and be sure to wire in the new one the same way.

this should take you to their site for a manual on your freezer. I has info on the time clock and how to set it.
First, be sure it has the correct power to the unit. I would then check the temperature control. Be sure it is sending power to the compressor unit. If a contactor is used, is the coil on the contactor getting the correct power? Start there and let me know if we need to go further. Good Luck

Is it factory new, never been used? Or are you saying you bought a used one and they replaced it with a "new" used one? I am familiar with True Manufacturing and if it is a new unit you have a one year parts and labor warranty. The dealer you bought it from is the responsible party to fix your problem.

T-23f not freezing


Depends on how technical you want to get. Generally, measure the ambient temp of air entering the condenser coil. Add 30 degrees to that temp and convert to psi using a P/T chart. This will get you to a starting point.Remember, charging a "Hot" box takes time. Don't over charge.
