At the end of the day its all down to costs
first ask yourself how old is this compressor?
how much to fix it and re-gass it?
if you pay to fix it, how much life is left in the old girl?
how much for a new compressor?
now,,,how much life will be in that one???? years!
not a hard choice,,but all down to costs!

Traulsen freezer with intella true continuously frosting the evaporator coil and blocking the air flow?

Your defrost circuit ... should (about twice each day) gently warm up.. and remove the frost to an evaporation tray at the bottom of your FREEZER (refrigerator?)...

Regardless of the design...

THERE are only two reasons for excessive FROST.

- massive air intrusion (check seals & gaskets)
- defective defrost circuit (check defrost timer/controller)...

EZ trouble to fix...

Post comment reply: 7/3/2016...

In general... there are only three elements to the defrost circuit:
- 1st failure is usually the "timer" (in your case (other cases it is being replaced by the power control board (do remove power: line voltages present).
- 2nd failure (inside ... usually atop the evaporator) is the "DEFROST THERMOSTAT" (designed the keep the heating element from getting much hotter than 55 degrees Fahrenheit, ("failing" = open.. prevents the heater element from being energized at all).
- 3rd the heating element... itself goes open (usually below the evaporator (caution: line voltages on 2nd & 3rd)).

Anytime you don't feel you've got this surrounded just comment me back... I'll be around.

Is it worth fixing a 30 yr old Traulsen commercial reach in refrigerator/freezer? The compressor on the freezer needs replacing but the refrigerator is working fine.

Is there a compressor for the refrigerator separate from the freezer? Weigh the cost of repairs against the cost of a new unit, then decide.

I have a traulsen freezer/refrigerator. Is there anything I need to do to convert it from fridge to freezer, other than adjust thermostat.

You probably will not be able to get much lower than about 28 degrees without having freeze up problems. A freezer uses different and more controls. Also, the compressor and expansion device may need to be changed. You need to do more homework on this as it could be a very expensive conversion. Let me know if I can help further.

The refrigerator is working but the freezer don't. Is on and it sounds working but the air wont come inside the freezer. traulsen rdt 2-24 dut

check for either a bad evap fan motor or a bad fan delay. It could be an under charged freon level too, but I would check the other items first as they usually go bad more frequently.

Very loud compressor in traulsen freezer

It's probably a hermetic compressor. Nothing can be done. It's got an internal rattle, possibly defective valves, or freon was avercharged.

Leak to under ice cube tray causing drawer to freeze shut.

May be your freezer evaporator drain hole is frozen. If this is the case, you can try to install a low heat drain hole heater into the drain hole and connect the wires with the defrost heater.

Traulsen Commercial Freezer needs charging?

The refrigerant level is low. The only thing is that the unit may not have a low charge. There can be several things that cause the unit not to refrigerate properly. It could have weak valves in the compressor or even a bad TXV(thermostatic expansion valve). Have you had this box repaired yet.? I see that this is an old post.
