Since you are convinced that the circuit is sufficient, look for a voltage drop during start up. In the unique case, when both units try to start at the same time, a voltage drop can cause overamping and trip the breaker.
Look at that and let me know if we need to go any farther

Can a traulsen commercial fridge be changed to a freezer by changing out a thermostat or a set point somewhere?


probably not. you would need to change the expansion device. You could probably get as low as 15-20 degrees but I doubt you could do much more than that without some system changes.

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.

When furance kicks onafter a while the furnace stops working the range hood and the refigerater. after a while its starts working again.


It is difficult trying to understand what you are trying to convey to me. If you live in an older house, this may be the problem. Your furance, refigerator and range hood may all be on the same circuit. Your furance should have a dedicated circuit, nothing else on it. The refigerator should be on a dedicated circuit also, the range hood can be on a circuit with other devices. To find out what is on a curcuit, go to the panel and find the circuit that powers the fridge, have someone watch to see when the light goes off in the fridge, that will be the fridge circuit. Now check and see if anything else is off, eg. if the range hood doesn't work, then it is on the same circuit. If the furance fan will not operate then it is also on the same circuit. Do the same thing with the furance circuit, turn if off at the panel and see what else does not work.
Remember, the furance and the refigerator need to each have their own dedicated circuit.

Freezer is not freezing properly and the refigerator is not cold


You have a defrost problem. The fridge gets cold air from freezer, if ice blocking from no defrost, no fridge temperature.

The fridge keep tripping the GFCI. I reset it and one minute later it trips again. I even tried it on a different GFCI circuit, still trip. Thank you


Refigerators should NOT be on GFI-protected circuits. Problems have occasionally been reported when plugging a refrigerator, freezer or other motor-driven appliance into GFI-protected circuits. These appliances generally have a motor that pulls significant startup current. Due to the electrical characteristics of motors, the startup current can look like someone getting electrocuted, causing the protection system to trip. The best remedy is to connect these appliances to a non-GFI outlet. Usually outlets that are expected to serve such appliances will not have GFI's installed.

Freezer and fridge areas both 50 degrees


Assuming you have a frost-free refigerator:
Is your motor-compressor running?
If so, check if you have ice in the freezer section; if so, maybe your defrost thermostat or heating element is kaput.
If the motor-compressor is not running, check in the back of the refrgerator if the defrost time is stuck open, bu turning clockwire the small test screw, with a 1/2inch screwdriver.
