Question about Carrier 44.9 cu. ft. Upright Freezer Beverage Air K Series KF48-1AS

1 Answer

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. The fans inside the unit never seem to kick in. We do get ice and frost around the top of the unit.

Any ideas?

    It could be low on freon.

    Since it is a freezer, it has a fan delay switch located in the evap area. It senses the temp of the evap, and when it gets to a temp (Usually about 20 degrees), it allows the fan to come on. The thought is that you do not want to circulate warm air in a freezer. If it is low on freon, the temp will not get low enough for the switch to tell the fan to come on.

    Another could be that the fan delay has gone bad and the switch is not allowing the fans to come on.



    This is listed in the parts guide as a refrigerator but Fixya has it has it as a freezer. Which one is it.

    If a refrigerator, there is no fan delay.

I purchased a BeverageAir commercial refrigerator and the fan won't run. What could the problem be?


CHECK THE THERMOSTAT WHETHER IS IT TO THE LOWEST CAUSING VERY LITTLE FREEZING. TAKE THE KNOB TO THE MAXIMUM AND THEN SEE WHETHER IT STARTED. IN CASE NO THEN CHECK THE WIRING OF THE FAN MIGHT BE SOME CONNECTION NOT IN PLACE

Freezer wont go below -9 degrees


This information does not mean anything to us if you didn't specify the model. In what temperature range a freezer works we knew thanks to the stars.
One star (-6 degrees centigrade) is perfect for making ice cubes and is sufficiently cold to keep food for three or four days.
** Two stars (-12 degrees centigrade) stores food for fifteen to twenty days.
*** Three stars (-18 degrees centigrade) will keep food safe for up to three months.
**** Four stars (below 18 degrees centigrade) means that the compartment provides the ideal conditions for freezing down fresh and pre-cooked foods.

Sub Zero 700 suddenly stops after 12 years. Compresser is burning hot.


The compressor will normally be 100 to 110 degrees. I would suspect the thermostat or mouse damage in the freezer area. Also, if you keep it overstocked, to the point of poor air circulation, you could just have ice blockage. Put the frozen food in a styrofoam cooler or a good heavy corrugated box and give the unit a good full defrosting.

I have a double door Commercial Freezer Beverage Air, E-Series Model#EF48-1AS and is not keeping the items inside frozen. We have cleaned out the fan filters and has not seemed to help. What else can I do...


Check the fans are running ok, and the condensing area isn't too hot. Check the door closes properly and the inside isn't blocked up with ice. If all appears ok you may have to call out a technician

Beverage Air. Model: CFG24-1. The evaporator fan motor does not turn while unit is operating. The entire condensing unit is working, except the evaporator fan motor. When I removed the evaporator fan motor...


http://beverage-air.com/pdf/manualsbycategory/K%20Series%20-%20Bottom%20Mount%20Reach-Ins/CFG_CRG_KF_Series809-046A.pdf

The fan has a limit control wired in series that shuts the fan down until the coil temperature reaches 25*F. this prevents the fan from blowing warm around after defrost.
There is also a switch which is placed for the door to close. Either one may be defective.
Worst case is the freezer is not pulling down temperature wise.

Unit gets no colder than 40 deg.


start with the basics. Make sure the condenser coil is clean. If the unit is running, make sure the evap fan motor is running. You may have to hold the door switch with your finger to check that out. Let me know and we can go further.
