Is the compressor fan motor running?
If so, replace the capacitor on the compressor.

If no.
Replace the thermostat.

Why does everything freeze in my T-49 True refrigerator


The cooling coil is probably frozen up. Shut it off and leave the door open over night. Start it up in the morning and see if its more accurate. Down the road you may find you have issues like leaving the door open in high temperatures, maybe the coil is plugged with paper, ice, dust etc. and needs to be cleaned, or maybe it was improperly charged by the last service man that worked on it. The charge should have been weighed in with a scale by the ounce. Good luck and hope this helps.

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.

I have a 2 door reach in true freezer which is now just keeping a steady 5 degrees about temp, should be 0 -10, fans, compressor, fans evap are all runing okay, the coils were clean, so what could the...


If its getting warmer or more humid where you are this is probably a sign of needing to clean your outer coils. Remove the panel covering the compressor and check the condition of the coils. Clean with a nylon brush or wire brush. Or blow out with compressed air.

If the outer coils look OK see if they feel warm up and down the sides. If they don't you may have a defrost problem. If they are warm recheck them in 30 minutes if still warm or warmer and no one has opened the door check the lite inside, and the fan inside (it will only run with door closed). Hit the switch and see if lite goes out and make sure the switch is being activated with the door closed. And check the door seals any vinyl cracked on them they need replacing but can be warped sometimes letting in warm air (usually a sign of frost inside the door or water leaking out but not always).
It could be low on refrigerant or an inefficient compressor but not likely as much as these other items are.

The last thing is the thermometer could be reading wrong or out of calibration. Is it Electronic? Yes - Then its most likely one of the other problem before. If its mechanical (bi-metal) get another thermometer you trust or a new one and check it before you trust it. 2 of them telling you its 5'f then Id believe it other wise one or both of them are wrong.

True t-49 refrigerator


Yes it can. You would have to call a service company to recover the refrigerant, remove the oil in the compressor. They would then replace the oil as well as the refrigerant. The metering device would also need to be changed, along with the thermostat.

T-49 delivery - set-up


Make sure that the service valves are open. After you have checked that, hook up your refrigeration gauges and verify that you have not lost all of your refrigerant. Please do this and let me know if you need any further guidance.

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!!
