Beverage-Air KF48-1AS not coooling, fans not running

We recently had a Beverage-Air KF48-1AS donated to our soup kitchen/food pantry. Looks in pretty good shape, but we can't get it below 40 degrees. Ice and frost build up The fans at the top of the unit never seem to kick in. Any ideas?

Unit lights come on, evap and condenser fans working, compressor comes on and kicks off in less than 10 secs. this was giving to a church pantry. list of what to try. instead of buying parts.thanks

From the sounds of it, it is possible that the start capacitor is bad or the compressor is locked up. One thing to try is replace the capacitor. The other is to get a hard start relay kit.

MT27 has a noisy fan operation. Doesn't always make the clacking sound, tried leveling the machine, cleaned condenser coils. We bought this unit 2nd had for our church's food pantry to keep the meat cold...

There are a couple of possibilities that could be causing this. I believe it is the fan blade. One could be that bracket that holds the fan motor in places could have loose screws, which would cause vibration. Another is that the mounting for the fan motor to the bracket could be loose. Another could be that the fan blade itself is slightly bent. Check the motor brackets screws, fan mounting screws and the blades. If all those are good, making sure the unit is unplugged you can turn the fan blade by hand slowly to see if it is dragging anywhere on the shroud around the coil or the coil itself. You could slightly bend the "clacking" blade to clear is that is the issue.

I am assuming that you are talking about he compressor having an issue starting. The switch is probably a anti-sweat heater. Turning it off, helps prevent a voltage drop which will cause a compressor starting issue. I believe your circuit is just too close to maximum. Your issue is usually caused by an undersized wired circuit to handle the starting amps needed to get it running. If you could put it on a dedicated, 20 amp circuit, your issue may just go away. Check it out.

Fan runs all the time

The inside fan has to run all the time. It turns off it will not keep things cold. Not the fan outside in the air it shoulc cycle with the compressor.

Fan in cooling compartment

The fan inside the unit should run all the time, this insures a more constant temp throughout the compartment by keeping the air moving.

Wont cool

1. try cleaning the condenser it's gotta to have some dirt.

(if it looks clogged, turn the unit off and spray the condenser with a water hose!) it should throw out some dirt

if you did step 1 and still no cooling suspect a small refrigerant leak.

most of the times if its r-134a, i go down to autozone and buy a stop leak for r-134a and charge it into system.

also if theres a refrigerant leak,i'd get a tech to check and correct leak (if he finds it) but that's worse case scenario :) I'd go with dirty condenser.... email me at if you need more info.
