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.

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.

Fan runs but the compressor does not run no


While moving the unit you may have jammed or budged the start capacitor which is keeping your unit from turning on. It is located in the back of the unit near the compressor it is oval shaped and silver in color with two wires running out of it. Get the number off of it, go online and search for beverage-air commercial freezer parts. You will need to have the model number to make sure that you get the right parts. Please rate

Freezer temperature does not get below 10 degrees


this is something you can do now. Check this 1st:
make sure that the air vents are not blocked and that you didnt overload the freezer with food

there can be other things that will not bring the temp. below 10 (that temp. is not too bad as long as it doesnt spoil the food)
here are the possiblities:
t'stat is set too low
t'stat is not responding to zero degrees (all that means is it is shuting off the compressor too soon to reach zero)
dirty condenser
r-134a freon is a tad low (only takes like 9 oz. if lose 1 or 2 that is enough to affect performance)
the freon is the last thing to check cuase you have to call someone to do that for you...

Well hope this was helpful... check the temp often watch to see if it gets above 20 degrees cause that will spoil you food..

Hi,Ihave had my electrolux fridge freezer for two years now and it is sited in my garage.When it gets really cold the freezer turns off defrosting everything,just found out if it drops below 10 degrees it...


Good day,
Not really. Domestic refrigerators are designed to operate in an environment where people live.
Most all manufacturers recommend that they not be placed in an area that goes below 55 degrees.
At any temperature below that it starts to degrade.
Cold enough and it will not work at all.
The reason is once the fresh food compartment reaches it's normal temperature of 33-37 degrees, it shuts the whole machine off.
That is by design, on any refrigerator like yours that has only one compressor and cooling fan motor.

As well, there are other issues. In that situation, the machine could well stay off 12 to even 24 hours.
The compressor has an oil sump in it, and the oil becomes very thick. When it finally tries to start, it creates a very stressful situation for the compressor, and could substantialy reduce it's life.

My wife and I bought a Kenmore chest freezer (14.8 cubic foot) about 6 weeks ago. It is made by Frigidaire for Sears, and the model number is #253.165.42105, serial # WB94341279. It has been working OK. ...


This is well with in factory specifications. Hot air rises and cold air drops. Because a chest freezer does not have a fan to circulate the air it is normal for the basket to be warmer than the bottom of the freezer. The bottom of the freezer is used for food you want to keep for a longer period of time.What you store in the basket is food you will freeze for a short period of time. Ice cream should not be kept in the basket. As you fill your freezer with food you will find that the temperature will equal out because the frozen food will take up the place of the frozen air which will give you a more stable freezer temperature.
Try your test when you have it full of food.

Top mounted freezer on refrigerator not working


Move the refrigerator to a room that is at least 50 degrees F.

Temps on most refrigerators are regulated by the fresh foods temp. If your garage is let's say 35 degrees, the fresh foods temp will most likely never raise enough to turn the refrigerator on. With the refrigerator never running, the freezer compartment will warm to 35 degrees, resulting in everything melting. Even if garage is a bit warmer, say 45, the refrig will not run long enough for the freezer to maintain a low enough temperture. If the garage temp falls to below freezing, say 20 degrees, the food in the fresh foods compartment will freeze. (outdoor beverage dispensers have internal heaters to prevent product from freezing !) Please don't rate this if not a Fix-Ya for you, as anything else lowers my score.
