I believe that breaker is actually for door frame heaters. Most true freezers have a resettable breaker for the door perimeter heaters only.

Regarding replacing the temperature control on the True t-23f freezer, I can't find it.


As soon as you open the freezer door the temp control is at the upper right of the freezer.

The fan on my true t 23f does not run. i check it is not getting power is there a fuzz or capacitor for this thanks


Are you talking about the fan inside the freezer? If yes, check the following items. The door has a switch that turns the lights off when the door closes, it also turns the fan off when you open the door. If it isn't working right the fan won't come on. There is also a round temperature senser on the coil inside the freezer called a "clickson" that keeps the fan from coming on until the coils are below 20 degrees, it may be bad. If you are low on freon, your coils may not be getting cold enough to trip the clickson. Feel of the small copper line going from the compressor to the coils on the outside of the freezer. It should be almost hot enough to burn your skin if you have enough freon. One other thing to check is the defrost timer. It is a box about 4 inches wide and 8 inches tall with a door on the front of it. Check the connections inside to be sure you are getting power through to the fan. Let me know how it turns out.

Freezer begun tripping our 20 amp breaker for some reason


ok hi there i viewed the specs for this freezer
http://www.truemfg.com/catalog/servlet/com.apsiva.servlet.HomeServlet
this unit must be plugged into a 120v outlet with a 15amp circuit breaker dedicated (nothing else should on this circuit) so all by itself. you have to check the voltage outlet where you plug in. you must have at least 115v or better (125v the most) if you have less then 115v it will cause damage. ok you went and checked all this out and everything is 15amp with 115v or better and it still trips breaker.
ok the running amps is 6.8 amps so to blow the circuit you need 15 amp which is too high.
i suggest you call a refrigeration guy because he will be able to determine if the problem is the compressor (which has a 4 year warranty with truemfg.com only in the USA) or something else. Usually but not 100% what would make a freezer like yours to blow the fuse is the compressor. if it overheats it will do this, if there is a sudden high pressure within the system it will do it, if you have a condenser fan that is not running at proper speed it will do this...
the problem cannot be pin pointed understand please... you have to babysit it, watch for changes in the refrigeration system and the running compressor amps, voltage drops ( this will cause high amps) etc...
Refrigeration is not easy and alot of tech stay away... so those who stick it out make money cause you have 2 choices: buy another one and pay big bucks to get it fixed. at least see if you can find someone to come over (for like $40 - $60) and tell you exactly whats wrong with it... whew... hope this was helpful and not confusing...sorry

http://www.truemfg.com/pdf/InstallManuals/GDM/gdm_english.pdf
This should take you to the site for the owners manual. You may be looking for a technical manual inwhich True doesn't do that. I will be more than happy to answer any questions should this manual not have what you're looking for.
Good Luck.
