sounds like the compressor is not running. The condenser fans are located at the compressor. The fans in the conditioned space are the evap fans. A refrig usually does not have any device controlling the evap fans, they are to run 24/7. Freezers have other controls. Start there and let me know if I can help further.

Thermostat does not go below 55 degree could it


You should clean them condenser coils and check the fan motor. That is something that is fairly easy to do. Get some coil cleaner from ace hardware and go by directions. Check that fan motor. If it ain't going while the compressor is going that is your problem.

TRUE GDM 26 merchandiser has sealed lines to the freeon and cant access. The fan blows warm air and all the lights work. It just doesnt cool.The compressor was cleaned only 2Xs in 3 years.


What do you mean the compressor was cleaned. It sounds to me you need to clean out the condenser coil. free it from all dust and debris. + Does the compressor work and what gas is in the system, does the condenser fan work. I'm assuming that when you say the fan works, it is the evaporator fan inside the cabinet working. You will have access the condenser fan either from the front or rear of the unit. The condenser unit is normally extracted from the rear. it should slide out but take care not to kink any of the pipework.

Have a true ttp67 that freezes when turned on after 2-3 hours instead of cooling!


If it was off over night the fan comes on you should feel air coming from the inside vent the condensor fan may be bad or the blade is loose
If you feel air then it freezes it's a Classic example of low freon gas.

We have a GDM-26 commerical coke machine. Only


If any of your drinks are freezing you need to adjust your temp setting. The suggested setting is 5. changing the temp setting basically tells the refrigerator to stop cooling when the temp hits a low degree, and to start cooling when it hits a high degree. This keeps your drinks not to hot, not too cold, but just right. If this doesn't work I would change the cold control altogether, it might've went bad. If you have a few minutes, locate the condensor fan (bottom) and make sure it is periodically turning on and off like it should.
