Question about True 598-TSSU7218 SandwichSalad Food Prep Table 72 38 Long 3 Doors 18 Pans

1 Answer

TRUE Salad Unit freezing food/compressor will not cycle properly

Replaced thermostat on unit(True TSSU 72-18) because old one would not cycle the compressor, thus freezing food . Now compressor cuts in at too low a temperature at the lowest (highest temp.) setting . By manually shutting off the thermostat and setting it back to the highest temp setting again, the compressor will remian off until about 38F then it restarts and begins the freezing process again . This unit does not have a tube in the evaporator to slide the temp probe into . The last few inches of the temp sensor probe are coiled about a half inch in diameter and inserted between the cooling fins of the evaporator . Is this correct ? Any assistance in this matter would be greatly appreciated ! Thank you ,
Mike Sena

Double check to see that you do have in fact, the correct thermostat. I have found a chart that shows that the differential is all over the board. There is a way to adjust these thermostats but is very time consuming and if you are not a refrigeration tech, you may struggle with the procedure.

SOURCE: True TS-49 Refrigerator freezing food

NEWER T-49 s DO NOT HAVE ANY DEFROST HEATER OR TIMER OR CUTOFF'S All solutions involving repairs on these items are bogus. The defrost occurs when the compressor shuts down normally. During this time,since the fan never stops, it should circulate above freezing air around the coils and a slow defrost may occur. It is a poor system at best, and does not work well if the compressor runs a lot. MY erratic cooling was fixed by removing the copper sleeve and cold control probe from the evaporator(cold coil on top) Polish up the copper tube and the probe, reinsert and bend the copper sleeve very slightly so that it fits snuggly into the evaporator. Mine was very loose and not making good contact with the metal evaporator, giving erratic control of temperature.. Good Luck!!

SOURCE: true tssu 72-18 is freezing

did you make sure that you installed the end of the coil wire into the evaporator, it should go in about 8 inches at least, if you did that and have the correct thermostat, the make sure your fans are working. Miles

The drain tube that drains out the water is plugged. It runs from inside the cabinet to under the refrigeration unit outside the cabinet. Try to clean it out with a can of compressed air used to clean keyboards and see of that works.

I got a true tssu-27 that won't cool what would be the problem with this unit?

Many times the air circulation across the condenser is the problem. Take a look at the condenser and make sure that the condenser fan is running and there isn't dirt or grease blocking air movement. There is also the obvious like a compressor that's not running or an iced up cooling coil. Is the compressor hot? Maybe an additional description would help. Are the fans inside the cabinet running? Good luck hope this helps.

Why is the unit freezing? It is a TRUE TSSU-60-16.

Turn down the temp and move produce item closer to the front. The air exits the evaporator at around 28 degrees. Possible you need a thermostat.

TSSU4812 refregirator making clicking sound and not cooling

Without a compressor analizer you will need to check the winding
resistance. or you can just cross your fingers and hope the relay
and start capacitor are the problem. Sounds like the condenser coil was plugged so you could possibly have a locked up compresor.I doubt it is low on refrigerant charge.

The fridge to begin with was extremely cold sometimes freezing the food a little even though it was on the lowest setting. 2 months later it has changed and now i have it on the coldest setting and though...

The symptoms are consistent with a bad thermostat. Start with being sure fans Inside and at the Compressor are running and if so replace the thermostat, if the unit still malfunctions, you'd need a refrigeration tech. That altitude won't make any difference. The Salad top units are just fine up to 7000 feet ASL no problem.

Compressor runs continuously freesing foods. Thermostat?

Yes for sure it is the thermostat but whether the unit has failed or if the controller is faulty or a wirelink had cut off is to be found out with a detailed check.
Look from the controller and see the sensor, if intact and at lower settign of temperature the compressor does not cut off, the thermostat is faulty.

Capillary tube replacement

The True TSSU-60-16 uses an oversized (134A) refrigeration system with air flow directed at the pans.... if the capillary tube is plugged it will NOT cool at all.. most of the time a restriction (plug) is at the drier where the capillary tube goes into it.. as it is smallest passage in the system...hope it helps
