You have not said if the cooler is cooling to the correct temperature or achieving the setpoint. Make sure that the correct thermostat has been supplied. Also that the sensor has been installed in the correct location. If all of the above is correct, then I would have the refrigerant level checked.

SOURCE: my true back bar cooler dosent cool it is not iceing over

If you can gain access to the compressor, you will see 2 copper lines going to the compressor. One is smaller than the other. VERY CAREFULLY lightly touch the smaller line while the unit is running. If the compressor is running, that line will be extremely hot.
Start there.
Let me know if I can be of further help.

TRUE TBB-2G Cooler is leaking water from the fan


I would guess the water is dripping from an ice ball or buildup in the coil either from an inlet side of the coil blocked by an accumulation of dirt and dust or paper or such. Second, if you leave the door open for lengths of time ice will build up, also an over heated over loaded condenser will cause ice buildup. In any case if you shut it down, let the ice melt, clean the coil, keep the door closed as much as possible and if its hot where its sitting let it have some air it should improve. Last thought, if there is a refrigerant leak in the system ice will accumulate at the end of the coil, the compressor will stay on longer than normal and this water drip is letting you know a service call is coming soon. Hope this helps and good luck.

Water dripping from inside top to bottom of cooler what is causing this and how can i fix it?


Coolers like yours create a lot of condensate. Every time the door is opened warm moist air enters and changes back to a liquid state on the evaporator coils behind the fan and area you see moisture dripping down from top and back wall should be going down a drain pipe to the bottom of cooler and into a pan where a fan blows warm air over the condensate/water returning it back into the store or business that the cooler is located. Looking inside there shoud be a tray or pan that is at the base of the evaporator. True uses different parts but you need to see why the water is leaking from. If cracked tray or line blockage causing overflow into the cooler. Click Here=> Leaking Refrigerators and then again here=> Leaking Refrigerators!

Check your evaporator drain pan and the outlet for the condensate water, and make sure the drain tubing is clear. That water is supposed to drain outside the box.

Water leaking into floor on both sides. Where is a.c. drain hose located?


Could be the drain tube is partially clogged. It is usually located on the fire-wall or down towards the floor pan under the car. It is usually close to where the A/C lines go thru the fire-wall. About 1/2 inch diameter sticking straight out but may have a 90 degree elbow pointing down.
Also, it's been extra hot and humid all over and moisture could be freezing inside the unit when on MAX A/C, then suddenly melting when switched to normal. This opens the outside air door and allows warm/hot air into the unit instead of recirculating the cold air inside the car. The drain may not be able to handle a large, sudden quantity of water.
Perform a "driveway" test. Open the hood, start engine and run the A/C on normal with the windows or doors open. Locate the drain tube by looking for water dripping. Once located twist 2 or 3 pipe cleaners together and verify the tube is clean. Then close the doors/windows and switch to MAX A/C. Check for water dripping. If it stops dripping, water is freezing inside and now you know why!

2009 Mazda 3 found water puddled under floor mat on drivers side, where is it coming from?


Could be condensation from the air conditioner. This normally drains out a tube near the glove box, onto the ground. If this drain tube comes off or is clogged, the water will drain into the interior of the car instead.
Could also be a leak around the windshield, door, or sunroof.
When do you notice it most? Warm humid days, or after a rain or car wash?

Galaxy fridge-water leaking under unit.no shutoff in house.water turned off at street.where/how do i proceed to locate problem?


Hi,

Thanks for contacting Fixya.com


Check the hose under your fridge that drains condensation and such into a catch tray. Make sure the hose is draining properly.

Blow air through the tube to make sure it is not clogged. A coat hanger wire can be inserted to break up clogs. An alternative method is to use a bicycle pump to force air through the drain hole to remove any obstruction. Vacuum dust bunnies from under the fridge to allow free flow of the air. Most refrigerators periodically blow warm air across the condensation tray. The warm air dries the condensation in the tray.

Clogs are usually caused when dust, moisture and micro-organisms get together in the drain tube. Keep the dust vacuumed from the back and bottom of the fridge. Make sure the drain tube is firmly connected at all points. The drain tube can be flushed with chlorine bleach, rubbing alcohol or other anti-bacterial product. Product selection should be consistent with the tubing material.

I have searched some important instruction through net from a valuable soursse…it might be of your help…
Analyzing the likely source
Instructions
STEP 1: Move the refrigerator out from the wall and look for the location of the leak. STEP 2: Check the side panels and the seals around the door for beads of "sweat." This could indicate a condensation problem. STEP 3: Check the floor. A puddle there could indicate a missing or cracked drip pan, or a leak in the water line that feeds your ice maker. STEP 4: Check for water seeping from the front of the freezer or the refrigerator. This could indicate your defrost drain is plugged or your ice maker is leaking. Fixing a condensation problem
Instructions
STEP 1: Check that the doors shut correctly. Hold each door about halfway open, then let go. If the doors don't shut completely, adjust the screw legs on the front of the refrigerator so the unit tilts back a bit. With adjustable pliers, turn each leg one revolution clockwise. Recheck the doors and, if necessary, repeat the process until they shut securely. STEP 2: Inspect the door gaskets. Look for debris that may keep the doors from shutting. Also check for cracks or gaps in the gaskets that could allow the cold air to seep out. If you find debris, clean the gaskets with warm, soapy water. If you find cracks or gaps, you'll need to replace the gaskets (see How to Fix a Refrigerator That Cools Poorly). STEP 3: If your refrigerator is equipped with a door-frame heater that evaporates condensation, make sure the heater is turned on. The switch should be located with your other refrigerator controls. Fixing a drip-pan problem
Instructions
STEP 1: Pull off the grill that runs along the bottom of your refrigerator. STEP 2: Locate the drip pan, using a flashlight if necessary. The pan should be sitting on top of a set of black condenser coils and directly below a drain tube that carries water from your freezer when it is in defrost mode. STEP 3: Place the drip pan in your sink and fill it with water to test for leaks. If it leaks, order a replacement from your appliance dealer. STEP 4: If the drip pan doesn't leak, clean it with warm, soapy water, then reinstall the pan and the refrigerator grill. Fixing a clogged defrost drain
Instructions
STEP 1: Locate the defrost drain. It should be a round hole or a channel running under the vegetable and fruit bins in the refrigerator or along the floor of the freezer compartment. STEP 2: Inspect the drain for clogs and remove any debris. If necessary, use a small screwdriver to break up debris that's trapped in the drain hole. STEP 3: Fill a meat baster with hot water and force it through the drain to make sure the clog is gone. If the drain is operating properly, the hot water will fill the drip pan. Fixing a leaky ice maker
Instructions
STEP 1: Pull the refrigerator away from the wall and locate the copper water-supply line. It runs from the house water line to the refrigerator water-supply valve. (To get to the supply valve, you may have to use a screwdriver or a nut driver and socket to remove your refrigerator's back access panel.) STEP 2: Inspect the copper supply line, the supply valve, and the plastic supply tube that runs from the other side of the supply valve to the back of the ice maker. STEP 3: If a connection is leaking, tighten it with an adjustable wrench. If either the copper supply line or the plastic supply tube is leaking, you need to replace it. STEP 4: Turn off the water supply. The valve may be under the kitchen sink or connected to a cold-water pipe in your basement. STEP 5: Remove the faulty line and take it to a hardware store to get an exact replacement. STEP 6: Install the new line, tighten the connections with the adjustable wrench and turn the water back on.

Water accumulating under the vegetable boxes in the refrigerators


Self-defrosting refrigerators dispose of the water generated during the defrost cycle, usually via a tube or channel that directs the water to a pan at the bottom of the refrigerator. From the pan, the water normally evaporates.

If the tube or channel is clogged or obstructed, the water backs up and leaks into the inside of the refrigerator compartment. Then the water builds up at the bottom, inside of the refrigerator. When the water has built up for a time it may spill out of the front of the door opening. To fix this problem, clear the drain tube or channel and allow the defrost water to flow down to the drain pan.

Leak water on floor once a month


This likely a defrost cycle issue. Your drain tube is likely clogged. Get under there and clean it, clean your condenser while you're at it. Cut down door openings, open liquid in the fridge.
