It is the defrost terminator terminal. It is connected to a thermodisc, like a Klixon device. When the evap temp. reaches a preset temp. it forces the termination of the defrost cycle.

1999 kolpak walkin freezer not staying cold


Is the compressor cycling on and off? Is there any oil around fittings at components? Gas is the last thing you put in a refrigeration system. You need to find the leak before you put any more gas in the system. Hope this helps good luck.

How to check the door heater on an walkin freezer


The connections are usually on a plate just outside the freezer on the door frame. check for low voltage at the terminals, and a warm feeling aruond the door frame. If no voltage, check the transformer. If voltage but no warmth, heater trim faulty.

Not freezing


Either the defrost circuit has failed or the refrigerant is low - my money is on the defrost circuit.

Most defrost circuits have three main parts:

1) defrost electric heating coil
2) defrost terminator
3) defrost timer.

The heating coil and terminator are in the freezer compartment - behind a protective panel. The heater is usually piggy-backed on the freezer coil and the terminator is in contact with the freezer coil to detect its temperature. The defrost timer is a simple assembly of a clock motor with switch contacts that can be located anywhere the manufacturer desires. The timer turns on or enables the defrost circuit every 8 or so hours for up to 30 minutes give or take.

When the timer has enabled the defrost cycle, the cooling mode ceases; the compressor shuts off and power is sent through the terminator to the heater. The heater warms and melts any ice build up on the freezer coil. The water drips to a pan and flows down the tube to a pan under the fridge - where it is evaporated off. The heater warms the freezer coil until either a) the timer returns to cooling mode or b) the terminator senses a preset rising temperature on the freezer coil. Once either condition is present, power is interupted and heating stops. The compressor is energized through the adjustable thermostat in your fridge. Since it is warm, the compressor turns on and cooling begins.

If any of the components listed above (1,2 or 3) have failed, the defrost cycle never warms the freezer coil and the ice never melts to clear the freezer coil as intended. Air can not be circulated through the freezer coil since it is choked with ice, so even though the compressor runs, the fridge and freezer spaces never get colder. The adjustable thermostat never sees the temperature you've set so the compressor never shuts off.

Water dripping in the fridge is melting ice from the freezer space - as the freezer is not getting colder - only the protected space around the freezer coil is.

To fix this, you'll have to get the service manual or schematics for the fridge to determine where the parts are located and do some troubleshooting with a multimeter after disassembling the freezer compartment and wherever else to access the timer if needed. This is not a good first appliance repair job for a DIYer due to the danger of refrigerant and testing live electrical parts in closed in spaces.

I hope this helps.

Can get water from the main water line but can't get water up to the ice maker help


HI. The inlet valve is suspect in this case. I recommend to inspect this device for damage. replace if necessary.

The water inlet valve is located behind your refrigerator. Find the water supply line coming into the valve and turn it off at the source (typically under the sink). Disconnect the supply line. Remove the screws that secure the inlet valve in place.

The water inlet valve is connected by two wires. Label the wire placement on the water inlet valve before disconnecting the wires. The wires are connected to the terminals with slip on connectors

Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (do not pull on the wire). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If the connectors are corroded they should be replaced.

Inspect the filter screen where the supply line connects. Remove any debris or deposits that may have built up using a toothbrush or warm running water. If you cannot clear the clog, it will be necessary to replace the valve (the filter is not removable on most inlet valves).


Test the water inlet valve for continuity using a multimeter. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X100 (if available, otherwise use the nearest ohm setting). Place a probe on each terminal. The multimeter should display a reading of 200 to 500 ohms. Close inspection of the inlet valve and especially the coil may reveal the exact ohm resistance rating to test for. If the water inlet valve does not pass this test, it should be replaced.


NOTE:- Make sure the inside line is not frozen over before preforming the inspection of the inlet valve.

Suction line on walkin freezer is sweating from condensor to evaporator above ceiling


The insulation wrap around it needs to be replaced. Thats the black foam stuff around the pipe.

When it gets old it loses its insulation quality and the the humidity condenses on the pipe.

Wrap it well in new insulation ensuring that all seams and openings are taped, and every square inch of pipe is wraped, but not to tightly. (Compressed insulation lowers efficiency)

Freezer due to brown out then power restored now low temp alarm


The light should reset itself when the freezer gets to less then 18 degrees. If it is still above 18 degrees it will stay on. Now if it is cooler then 18 degrees then unplug the unit for 1 minute and plug it back in once you are sure that it is below 18 degrees. But do not rule out the thermostat. It could have blown out when the brownout happened. To test it jump the wires together and see if the freezer comes on and goes off

How do turn the temp up on a norlake walkin?


They are usually mounted on the front panel of the evaporator or mounted on the wall behind the evaporator.There is a possibility that the temp. control is at the condenser,and the sensing bulb was slipped thru the wall.Look for the bulb at the back of the evaporator and follow the cap tube.
