Question about Traulsen G20010 Commercial Refrigerator
If we're talking about a 35 degree box,
It's normal for the coil to run down to 17 to 18 degrees, followed by shutting down until the coil temp. reaches approx. 38 degrees, which is above freezing and allows for enough time for the coil to defrost.
Your box controls this hi/low range either with a cycle defrost thermostat not unlike a thermostat in a domestic refrigerator.
Or, it is performed by a low pressure switch which accomplishes the same thing by being adjusted to cut in and out at the pressures of the refrigerant that correspond to the correct temperatures.
Either one can be set wrong, or not performing properly. Adjust
or replace as necessary. However,
It is not unusual for a commercial box to do this even if the controls are O.K.
In that case, it is accepted practice, to add an interruption timer.
Normally, this timer is set to shut the compressor off for a period of time, whether it wants to or not. Thus guaranteeing defrosting.
A good timing event to start with is 3 times a day, ( every 8 hours)
for a period of 30 minutes. Adjust as needed.
All commercial refrigeration supply houses carry them in 120 and 240 volt versions.

You have an air leak somewhere. Either inthe area where the pipes enter the unit, or you have a bad doorseal. Either will allow air to continually get into the unit, keeping the moisture level high. Seal the leak and you will end the problem.
