Question about True 49 cu. ft. / 1388 liter Commercial Freezer GDIM-49NT

1 Answer

We have a true T49F freezer and the evaporator fans are not running. The compressor is running on startup. The coils are cold. But are freezing up. Shouldn't the fan be on, or does the cabinet have to reach a certain temperature?

Freezers have a sensor that is referred to as a "Fan Delay/Defrost Terminator". It senses the temp during the defrost cycle. Usually, when the evap temp reaches about 50 degrees, there should not be any frost or ice on it. This device terminates the defrost cycle. It also keeps the fans off so warm air is not circulated. When the evap gets to about 20 degress or so, the sensor switches on the evap fans. If the fans are not coming on, either the sensor is bad or the evap is not reaching the proper temp to cause the sensor to turn on the fans.

Hope is helps to clear up some things and point you in a direction as to what might be going on.

Commercial fan on evaporator cuts off after starting


There is an overheat klixon on the evaporator that stops the fan running until the coil gets below -11c This can take some time after startup. if the freezer runs more than an hour before the fan starting, check the klixon isn't faulty, and you have power to the fan. Also check the condenser grille is nice and clean as it will slow down the freezing process.

Compressor runs but fans dont.


If the compressor is running and pumping with no heat produced, you have lost refrigerant.. Most modern freezers have a controlled fan so the coil can freeze before the fan starts.

Fan is not running in my True T49F Freezer


There is a switch above the door; check you have power from it when closed, then check the evaporator is cold enough as there is a thermistor that stops the fan until it is beginning to freeze. Lastly check the fan blade isn't stuck and the motor is ok.

Compressor runs bypassed thermostat with wire that turns on and off compressor,but freezer cabinet is not cold 65 degrees evaporator fan does not turn on,condensor fan on,sttill no cold


If you have just turned it on it takes awhile for the fans to come on. The evaporator coil has to get cold about (10 to 20 degrees) and make a klixion fan switch to turn the fans ON.... Is the evaporator coils getting a frost pattern on them??? If not then the system may be low of Freon.. If the coil is completely froze up and you are getting frost back to the compressor..... then you have a bad fan switch or a door switch.... If you have a wiring diagram you can trace out the wiring.... It is usually down by the compressor or control panel... hope this helps.

Fans inside freezer will not turn - no cooling - compressor fan underneath is turning


The fans are controlled with a clixon that has a cut in at 5 degrees, and cut out at 20 degrees. If the unit is running and the fans are not comng on then I would have to say you are out of freon. But your condensor fan could be running and the compressor NOT be running which could be a problem with your compressor. Find out if your compressor is running by taking an amp draw. If compressor IS running then you are low on freon. If the compressor is running and your evaporator coil is cold and your fans AREN'T coming on then your clixon is bad.

What do you do to convert a T49F freezer to run as a refrigerator and is this feasible?


First of all the unit uses a low temperature compressor which is designed to work on a freezer. Refrigerators use a medium temperature compressor. So most likely it would be over sized for what you are trying to accomplish,
Secondly the evaporator feed device is designed for "low temperature", not "medium temperature", so it would involve resizing the feed device.

TRUE under counter FREEZER TU2-27F


Are both evaporator fan and condensor fan running?You stated that you topped off the charge.Assuming the charge is ok, the next thing to check would be the expansion valve.May not be metering the freon properly.A faulty expansion valve can trick you into thinking the unit is undercharged.It may be partially open and starving the evaporator.(Not freezing the water totally)You should have a even coating of frost on the evaporator coil when running.Hope this helps,let me know if i can assist you any further.
