Why does my wine cooler run too cold?


If after adjusting your thermostat to desired temp and is still cooling. The thermostat is bad or your relay is bad
If you disconnect the thermostat and the compressor stops it most likely a bad thermostat
If you disconnect the relay from
The thermostat and it stay running it is the relay. It is sticking
If possible store you wine somewhere else and shut the unit down and unplug for 10 to 20 minutes this may cause some melt of condensation some water may be on the floor if is to cold
This may also reset the system.

My refrigerator kicks on and off but will not cool below 48 degrees


It may be kicking off on low gas, or the cap tubes or the evaporator valve is malfunctioning. A professional technician will have to check it out.

Cooler Compressor runs but cooler won't get cold?


If the compressor kicks in then check the lines to see if they are cold. It is possible the compressor burnt out from leaving the door open. Purchase a sensor alarm to alert you if the door is left open.

We have 2 IR air compressor Model No. SSR-EP75 that are tripping on high air end temperature frequently. We have monitored the temperature using a data logging system and have not found any regular pattern...


First what temperature is it tripping at ? Have you removed the oil fill plug and visually inspected the oil level. It should be filled to the oil fill plug threads. 228 degrees F is the temp the air end temp sensor should trip the unit at, approx. You need to know the ambient temp. where the unit is located. add 100 degrees F to the ambient and that is what the unit should be operating at. ( ex. 100 + 95 amb compressor should operate at approx. 195 degrees F.) If the unit is tripping at 180 or even 215 you probably have a bad temp sensor. It would be unusual for 2 units to have temp sensors go bad at the same time but it could happen. OK if the unit is tripping at or around 228 check the following: Oil/air cooler - (Radiator). It should be clean on both sides. It can be blown out with air or washed out with a 1200 psi pressure washer. When complete you should be able to see thru the cooler, and have good air flow thru it at any location especially corners. Next the thermostat could be the problem. when starting the unit up cold check the return line from the cooler with your hand. If the panel reads 190 to 200 their should be oil flowing thru the cooler. if it stays cool replace the thermostat. The thermostat should open at 170 degrees F. If you have a temp gun use it to check temps on the 3 lines from the thermostat. you are looking for a 25 to 30 degree drop across the cooler. Last but not least if all looks good and the unit is just prematurely tripping you may have a controller going bad. Sometimes these controllers will trip on some alarm. At first it may be once per month then once per week then once per day then several times a day until it gets to where it will not run without tripping on some alarm. Good Luck.

Hi - We've got a Turbo Air TGF-23F mrechandising freezer that freezes - down to -15 and then suddently begins to warm up about 1 degree per minute. In about 15 minutes its just over 0 degrees and...


Did they test the thermostat? I would think that the compressor would kick on before you got that much of a fluctuation, unless the thermostat is not sensing the change fast enough.

The run and start capactiors and relay, did they give you a reason for that? When the compressor kicks on does it surge the power? Light dim or something? It is hard to guess without being able to put an o'scope on your machine to be able to see what it is doing, but just based on what your write-up was, I can't see the parts you said they want to replace will fix the problem.

Hi, could be faulty thermostat, can you check compressor, is compressor running (working), listen to compressor for clicking sound, unplug it(switched off) for about 20 minutes, replug and let it run (work) for another 20 mins. see if temp. drops, what about temp. inside bottle (wine) cooler, is it 98 or colder, more info. could be valuable. check thermostat, check to see if compressor operates, if cooler temp. 98. remove you products, to another cooler, call mechanic.

The unit has a temperature swing adjustment screw located behind the thermostat plate.If you remove the knob and the face plate you will see it,It can be adjusted there.It may also be the thermostat bulb is going bad or touching something and giving a false signal to the compressor.
