Superba 48 stopped completely

Hello Shawn;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

You did not provide a model number. The model number is on a label, on the liner inside wall of your fresh food section near the top.

I picked a Superba 48 model number at random to see what you have. The model I picked - the control boards are not available. But these are not your problem.

Every 8-10 hours your unit completely shuts down except for the lights, and goes into a defrost mode. This is where your defrost heater turns on for 20-30 minutes, defrost your cooling (Evaporator) coil, and then turns your unit back on. You may have a bad defrost timer.

1.) Defrost Timer - Behind your unit is a defrost timer.



The timer is mounted on the back a steel bracket with a hole through it. Take a flat head screw driver, turn the round shaft one click at a time clockwise until the unit turns on and is running.
If the unit turns on, then you have a bad defrost timer.
Note: When replacing note what contact number the black wire is connect.

2.) Power On/Off Switch - In the lower back, you also have a Power On/Off switch. Unplug the unit disconnect the 2 wire leads on the switch. Using a multi-meter, set ant the lowest Ohms (Omega Symbol), Ohm out the switch. If you get a reading other that '0', then the switch is bad.

I have a paragon 8145-20 defrost timer. do you wire the compressor to the timer? I cant seem to find a wiring diagram on how to wire this correctly

Link below has wiring diagrams and wiring manuals for 240V 8145-20

I am not expert installing defrost timers.
According to information from Paragon, 8145 is for hot gas defrosting. 8140 series are time initiated, and pressure-or-temperature terminated.
Wiring diagram does not show compressor wired to timer.

The cycle works like this:
Timer is running but defrost is not switched ON.
Fan is ON.
Timer switches ON and activates defrost cycle.
Fan turns OFF. Hot gas valve turns ON for defrosting.
Cycle limit switch is temperature or pressure sensitive.
Cycle limit switch reaches trip point, timer switches OFF.
Hot gas valve turns OFF. Fan turns ON.
So fan is off during defrost cycle.
Hot gas valve turns ON when timer switches ON.
Timer is switched OFF by pressure-or-temperature limit switch.

On a Paragon 8145-20 Defrost Timer, I know you land the refrigeration circuit on terminal 4, the heater on terminal 3, but what goes on terminal "X" and terminal "N"

Link below has 8145-20 wiring diagram:

Terminal N is 2nd wire needed to complete circuit.
In 240V 8145-20, there are two hot wires.
One Hot connects to terminal 1, with jumper to terminal 2.
Second Hot connects to terminal N, and this will power the clock motor and timer.
Terminal X is for temperature or pressure termination switch.

Defrost cycle works like this:
Timer is running but switched OFF.
Refrigeration fan is ON.
Timer switches ON, defrost cycle begins.
Refrigeration fan turns OFF.
Hot gas defrost turns ON.
When temperature-or-pressure limit switch reaches trip point, it switches timer OFF.
Refrigeration fan turns ON again.
Hot gas defrost turns OFF.

Rear defrost won't turn off.

Disconnect the cable that goes to the defroster at the rear windshield, this will allow you to put the fuse back for now. Check or replace the rear defroster switch. If its not the switch you have a short-circuit. You can try replacing the wires from the switch to the back windshield, you can use the same switch or an after market one will do.
