Question about True GDM-12 Refrigerator Commercial

Cooler not getting cold

My true GDM -12 cooler is no longer getting cold. I only hear the fans running, when I use to hear everything. It is also blowing warm air, how do I determine if I need Freon and if the compressor is working

By not hearing anything but the fans I would have to say the compressor is not running. Pull the cover off so you can access the condenser area where the coil and compressor are located. Check the coil and ad make sure it is clean. Then feel the compressor and find out if the compressor is hot. If it is hot and the coil is dirty/dusty I would say it was going off on high head pressure/temperature. Clean the coil and let the unit sit off for a while and then try running it. If it is cool then it may have an issue with the refrigerant or other things like maybe start componenets.

More than likely you need a new compressor. It sounds like it's trying to start and then trips on it's overload or capacitor may be out.

You have not said if the cooler is cooling to the correct temperature or achieving the setpoint. Make sure that the correct thermostat has been supplied. Also that the sensor has been installed in the correct location. If all of the above is correct, then I would have the refrigerant level checked.

Either the compressor is going bad or the start relay on the compressor is going bad. The relay is under the plastic cap on the compressor it will be a nickle size round disc with one wire hooked to one of the 3 prongs coming out of the compressor. This is what you hear click. But to be honest normally this points to a bad compressor and then its time for a new fridge. Hate to give bad news good luck

Noisy compressor?


My Gdm 12 was doing the very same thing. Remove the from grill plate by taking out the 4 screws below the door. This will expose the compressor mounting plate . While the compressor is running, and is at its loudest, loosen or tighten the two front hold down bolts until the noise goes away. Most likely, when you cooler was moved or transported off the shipping pallet, it was bent slightly allowing contact between the bottom of the compressor, and the mounting plate. Hope this helps.

I have a True Cooler GDM-35SL-RF. the fans are not working but the compressor is. What can I do to fix this and where on the cooler would I find the problem?


They have a support line here:

Our Technical Service department is available via Internet or phone

Via phone please call 1-800-325-6152 and ask for the Service Department

You can also use the page to ask any questions. I suspect you have a fan relay that has failed as the fans should be running anytime the compressor is running. Since all of the fans are not running that leads me to think it is a relay problem.

One thing to need to make sure is to verify that all fans.. condenser (bottom of the unit) and evaporator (inside the unit) fans are not running. If the condenser fan bottom of the unit is running and the evaportar fans are not running it could be something as simple as a door switch that has failed. Call them during business hours and I am sure they will tell you what the remedy is.... and of course.. do their very best to ensure they get to send a repair tech your way.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

If the cooler has power, the condesor fan (bottom) and evaporator fan (top) are spinning put your hand on the compressor. Do you feel a vibration? if so, you probably have a refrigerant leak. If not (if its clicking or nothing at all) its a compressor issue.
