Question about True 49 cu. ft. / 1388 liter Commercial Freezer GDM-49F-RC

1 Answer

GDM-49 We've searched the fridge and there doesn't appear to be a starter cap at the bottom or top receptical for the light. It is an older GDM-49 and the light is located between the two doors. Is there any way that the starter cap could be located anywhere else? We also didn't see a ballast in the base. Any guidance on finding and/or replacing the ballast, if that is what is causing the flickering problem. Thanks!!!!!!

True commercial cooler model GDM-49-LD. Been fine for several years. Water now accumulating in cooler floor. Origin seems to be back wall dead center. Any suggestions ?

drain tube runs from dead center of the coil into the back wall and down under the unit where it drains into a pan and is evaporated. Sounds like just a blocked drain tube. The easiest way to clear this is to take the bottom front grill off and look for the drain tube which is typically just strapped to the top of the opening suspended over the pan. Use a wet vac to pull out the sludge or some kind of pressure to blow it back up into the cabinet. Problem with blowing back is that dirt and water are going to blow into the cabinet and/or coil. taking the hose off of the interior coil is difficult and you can break the plastic connector so I don't recommend that to anyone.

Product in my true gdm-49f freezer is frosting up and there is an ice build up around the inside of the case. what could be the causes of this.

Try defrosting the unit by shutting it down until all ice is gone. If this corrects the problem and the ice returns you may either have a defrosting problem or a low freon charge.

How much open space should I provide around my True freezer?

This unit pulls air in through the lower louvers in the front and pushes the air out through the back . It produces a lot of heat when running. 3 or 4 inches at the back should be sufficient if the air can escape over the top of the freezer.

Timeclock Not going in defrost
Go to this web site and check out the owners manual. On pages 13 or 14, it discusses the time clock. If the time clock is not moving to begin a defrost cycle, I would say, replace it. It does have a mechanical motor and it can fail or lock up.
Hope this helps.

TRUE freezer model number GDM-49F.

Your unit should have a defrost timer.The timer may be stuck in a defrost.It should be located at the bottom of the unit next to the compressor.Open the door to the timer and observe the position of the timer.If you turn the knob and the unit starts up,it's the timer. If this is the case, you can purchase a new one at any local a/c supply.Let me know,Mike
