Delfield 'New 6000XL 6051 Side by Side Refrigerator

I am the second mechanic on this Unit. 1st mechanic changed out compressor and TX valve. I then changed another compressor 2 years later and removed tx valve installed cap tube (unit has no receiver), now unit will not go below 47 degrees. What is the problem?

    Need to know what your pressures and temps are when it gets as cold as you say it will go 47? Temp or feel temp on the condenser (should still be very warm to hot on the condenser. Pressure should be 2-15 on the low side and About 20-30'f Over ambient on condenser. I'm betting your going to find both pressures low, and the temps hi inside (at 47 I reckon so) and the condensor coil will be mild to luke warm with the pressure under what I called for (this is assuming all the coils are clean and all the fans are running and turning in the correct direction, and the doors are sealed, and the lights are going off with the doors closed. Im also betting your suction pressure is going into a vacuum or at best 1psig

    With all these things eliminated your down to just 2 things now post that you have all these things checked and post the pressures and temps and tell me what you think th problem is.

I had a similar situation, unit cooling at about 45 deg, pressures were 10 low, 250 high.
Replaced capillary tubing, now unit cools at or below 38 deg, pressures 30 low, 225 high

How was this unit originally equipped? TXV? Use only a TXV OF CORRECT size. In refrigeration if you have a 6000btu rating you do not use a 1/2 ton valve you use a 1/4 ton (3000btuh) at most and would need consulting with an engineer to arrive at the correct valve.

SO was the TXV the other fellow replaced an OEM valve? If not this may be the problem as most TXV's off the shelf are designed for walk-in refrigeration Not Reach ins. An OEM valve may be the trouble here.

Now not to stress the TXV but also the compressor (what was the original model?) Make sure it is designed for the particular heat range and size for this application. As you probably know 1 size compressor designs for AC will not be OK on Refrigeration at same BTU rating.

Call Del field and verify what they are using or recommending for this unit. model and Seal no required and the existing model and SN.

Also to my knowledge a receiver is not required and in fact will only add to your trouble. Receivers are for changes (wide differences) in condensing temperature and pressure. Never saw an application for one with a condenser designed from factory for indoor use with either type of expansion device.

If you need Del fileds number email me at farfield@hughes.net and in th subject line enter delfield?.

How do I replace the door gaskets on a Delfield Model 6051 refrigerator? I can't see how to get the plastic inner panel off to release the gaskets and there is no help in the operating manual.


from what their web site shows, all of their gaskets are some sort of push in (Dart type) or clip in on a strip. Removing the inner panel is not necessary.

go to page 36 and it shows the construction of the their gaskets.

Clean the condensor


You can clean the condenser while it is running or you can unplug unit . most of the time you can use a nylon brush to brush off the condenser. If it has not been cleaned in a while you may need some sort of compressed air to blow through it. If units are in restaurant and by fryers or have greasy buildup on them you will need to unplug unit and spray some degreaser on it then rinse with water. It is important to clean the condenser, the part with fins and is located by compressor, because a dirty condenser will shorten the life of the compressor.
