I have a commercial freezer (Randall) with a Ranco thermostat. It won't get any colder than 25-30F. There are two adjustment knobs, but I don't know what to do. Please help!! Thank you.

Freezer not freezing acting like refrigerator

Either the thermostat went bad or the refrigeration system has a leak and you are low on freon....that will also cause poor cooling..

Freezer stopped working for a period of time while we were gone for 4 days...set house thermostat to 86 degrees

Is this a commercial freezer? If so, it might be because you don't have proper ventilation for it. Commercial units put off a lot more heat than residential units. Turning the thermostat up to 86 degrees will make it even more difficult for this unit to not overheat.

Do freezers have a thermostat

If the unit is a bit overcharged it will only go so low and then not cool any could try to remove a bit more charge and then see what happens... also check to see and make sure that the low press. switch is not cutting the compressor the temp. drops so does the press. and if the switch setting is too high it will cutout to soon...
So... if the compressot runs continuously then drop charge...if it is cycling then sheck the switch...

The temp only goes down to 30 farenheit. the thermostat control knob is set to the coldest position. is the thermostat faulty or can it be adjusted?

Check list:
Fans running
Compressor cool to the touch
Not short cycling (low freon)
coils cleaned
no air restrictions
If all of that is good bypass the control
see if it gets down to 0
If it does replace the control

Won' stop making ice

most likely the bin thermostat is not calibrated correctly or is not making contact with the ice. The unit should shut down within 5 to 10 seconds after ice makes contact and has not entered the freeze cycle.
Start there and if this does not resolve, let me know and we can get into more indepth things.

Freezeing up, not cooling

Without knowing if it a freezer or a cooler I will have to guess. Could be caused by a few things. I'll list them in order of the one I think is the most common reason.

  1. Door gaskets or someone left door open for a time.
  2. Thermostat set to low.
  3. Low freon
  4. expantion valve out of adjustment or needs replaced
  1. Defrost not working (Will have heaters with a timer)
  2. Low on freon or expantion valve

Beverage-Air Freezer Model KF-24

verify that condensers ain't clogged with dirt, condenser fan is running all the time and set the thermostat to the coldest setting. if temperature keeps rising suspect dirty condenser of deficient condenser fan. if compressor runs and no cooling after condenser cleaning. suspect a refrigerant charge problem. hope to be of assisit
