Question about 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?
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 email@example.com and in th subject line enter delfield?.
