Question about Delfield DEL-SSR3S Spec Line 3 door refrigerator

1 Answer

The refrigerator has been running since we plugged

We recently purchased a used Delfield SSR3-S. The refrigerator has been running since we plugged it in. The temperature is down to between 35 and 40 degrees as measured by a refrigerator thermometer but the exterior thermometer is flashing random numbers instead of the actual interior temperature reading.

Is there any way to reset the thermostat, or will I need to replace it?

I think it needs replacing. In some cases, the thermometer is actually the front of the controller of the unit. This could be why it runs constantly. I would also look at the condenser coils and make sure they are really clean.
let's start there. let me know if I can help further.

What should be my pressure on a Delfield 404A refrigerator

As a general rule of thumb, pressure on low side should equal a temperature of about 17-18 degrees if the box is not hot and a high side of ambient plus 30. Again, this is a general rule of thumb that usually gets you close enough to get a unit working providing all other things are right.

You need to install a thermostat to cut off control power to condenser contactor at a set temperature that you will have to set, let's say; 5 degrees for example. You should be able to purchase a thermostat at any A/C & refrigeration store. If you are familiar with control, this should an easy job.

Good Luck!

You will need to replace the temperature assembly on the unit. If you can post the model number, I will be able to direct you to the parts you need. The model number will be something like "18648-BUC".

Does not hold temperature Delfield sandwich/salad 2 drawer unit. Is this a cold holding unit or a refrigeration unit capable of refrigerating 40-60 lbs of lunch meat loafs?

start with the basics. Make sure the door closes and seals on all sides. If so, check to see that the condenser coil is clean. On some units, you may have to 'Wash" them out and let dry prior to using. Start here and let me know if I can be of further help.

Delfield freezer 6151-S keeps tripping GFCI

Try it in a normal plug. Freezers and refridgerators just pull too much to be used on a GFCI. The more a GFCI is used the eaiser it trips.

Delfied Freezer6000XL freezing temps are not hold

Sounds like a refrigerant restriction in the system. Recover the refrigerant, replace the filter drier and pull a deep vacuum on the system before recgarging.
