Question about Seaga Manufacturing SM26 Commercial Refrigerator

1 Answer

I do repairs for a soft drink distributor in my area. They have a SM-26 seaga glass door cooler with a defective compressor. I called the mfg. in Freeport, Ill. and talked to the partsman. He told me he a a replacement compressor for this cooler for 199.40 shipped. I told him the defective comp. was an E6188BZ, 3/4hp 115v unit. Upon receiving the replacement compressor I immediately thought the unit was too small for this application. The compressor he sent was a Samsung SD143C-L1U2 rated 425btu cap. I called the parts dept. back and told him I didn't think he sent me a compatible unit. He assured me this was the only compressor they used as a replacement for the SM-26. I find it very hard to believe that if I install this compressor I will have very favorable results. What advice can you interject on this questionable situation. I have been a repairman doing commercial refrigeration for over 30 years and even at that I want to give this company every opportunity to prove this compressor is big enough to do the job!

Hi,
The compressor which they supplied(Samsung) is very low capacity one and it will not do the work equal to the previous compressor
As they say they use this for SM26 soft drink distributor try connecting it. And check the performance if you have the same performance as the previous compressor then it wont be the problem.If the performance is less then change it.And before connecting have a talk with the parts provider that you will return the product if you do not get satisfactory performance.If they accept for it then connect this compressor.
Thank You

Hi.

The price depends on the model and on the internal volume. Here a UK seller: Commercial Beverage Coolers & Commercial Bottle Coolers. Here a SA distributor of beverage coolers. The choice includes Kelvinator.

About the fault. If the problem happened after a power surge it is often possible to repair the cooler replacing the starter relay mounted on top of the compressor. The part is not expensive. Call the Kelvinator number listed on the owner manual to know more about the possible repair or to purchase the part.

Regards.

A small amount of cold air is in the refrigerator, but not enough to cool the contents of beer and soft drinks. The model number is 594.


Hi,

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.

If the cooler has power, the condesor fan (bottom) and evaporator fan (top) are spinning put your hand on the compressor. Do you feel a vibration? if so, you probably have a refrigerant leak. If not (if its clicking or nothing at all) its a compressor issue.

True Refrigeration GDM-26 Compressor problem?


More than likely you need a new compressor. It sounds like it's trying to start and then trips on it's "Klixon" overload. Call a commercial refer guy (not somebodys brother in law that works on A/C, it's NOT the same!)
