Low temp alarm / magnet valve?

I have a Franklin Chef beverage cooler with an Low temp alarm on one side --- this indicates either the unit is lower than it should be, or the magnet valve needs to be replaced. The unit is in a 70 degree ambient environment. The unit is at room temperature. I cannot tell if there are separate compressors for each side and one has leaked, or, the magnet valve actually needs replacing. How can I change the magnet valve? This would seem straightforward. Model numbers is: FBC36ID

SOURCE: Rinnai 1004 - Temp on thermostat reads 10 deg cooler than actual, keeps running

Behind the unit near the floor level, is a yellow wire with a black bulb at the end. This is the actual sensor for returning air. If there is cool air infiltrating the area where it is located, it will keep the unit running until the return air reaches temperature. You could also have a bad sensor but highly unlikely. Make sure there is no air infiltration influencing the sensor. Also, you can unclip the sensor and pull out a few more inches of wire to locate it higher up away from the floor. Tie it up with a wire tie.

Rinnai it testing a remote thermostat but as of yet, there is no plans to offer one.

SOURCE: Indoor unit temperature between 60F & 70F after R22 charge..

If anything, it appears undercharged. Purging is not recommended. @90 degrees the high side corresponding pressure is 168.4 and Low side coresponding numbers re70psi/68degrees. With all due respect to the tech I think . If your room temp is 80, the corresponding high aide pressure is 143.6 , Low side 85 psi Yup, undercharged. Now do me a favor and don't start any "but he said" wars going. If anything, Just call him back and tell him something is still not right. Ask him to bring you a pocket rergerence for temp/pressure relationships. The numbers I gave you are for R-22 which is commonly used in residential applications. Well, good luck and keep your cool. IDon't purge. R-22 is very expensive asis everything else. You may want to dispute anny additional service call charges. Good Luck

SOURCE: Incorrect ambient temperature on Honeywell Model RTH221B

Check in your manual for the thermostat. By pushing a combination of buttons you can get into the advanced installer menu. From there you can make an adjustment to correct the temperature.

My beverage cooler MCBC58DST wont stay cool after it reaches target temp.


Throw it out and get another model from another company. Their units are junk!
They last a year, at best. Them and Magic Chef are one and the same...so you may have to bite the bullet and get a real unit.

Good luck. I speak from experience...I've had four now. Complete junk!!

The alarm in our Franklin Chef model FWC100 wine cooler keeps going off even though everything stays cool so we want to know how to turn off the alarm or cut the wire to the alarm. Thanks.


Love this machine. Works great. Have had it for 6 years. Now it has a problem. The lights and fan work, and the temperature settings work. It behaves like either the freon is low (I don't hear the compressor starting), or whatever causes the compressor to start is crippled... Fuse looks good, nothing visibly burned on the motherboard, haven't opened the bottom.

I'm looking for keys for a Franklin Industres FBC 360D. Can you point me where I can buy them? Thanks, Nick


Hi Nick

Try this link the guys should be able to supply the spares, but you may have to buy locks and keys unless you have the key numbers, the numbers are sometimes on the face of the lock in tiny figures, but I can't promise they will be there

Yes some cooling units don't have service ports,but you can put a piercing valve on the low side and check it but when you done take it out and repair the little hole made by the valve.Or if you have to open the system you can add a service port at the low side(suction) and if you open the system always replace the liquid line filter and when you do you can use the ones that cames with a service port to check the high pressure side.
