Question about McCall Refrigeration Commercial Freezer 11045UF01 Stainless Steel

1 Answer

McCall freezer installed 8 yrs ago in remote area 90 miles from nearest tech. Compressor was remoted to basement. Freezer has never cooled to less than 10F--in red arc. Now won't cool less than 30F. Both freeze and evap. Coils are clean. Compressor runs almost all the time. Is there a troubleshoot manual so I can check compressor before I call a tech to check for leaks and possible recharge?

If the condenser coil is clean and the unit is in an area where the ambient temp. is 80 degrees or less, it is most likely a refrigerant problem. Probably low and has a leak. Another issue could be that the line sizes for the distance the refrigerant has to travel, may be wrong. Since I don't know the distance, you may need to have that checked into also. You should not have more than a 1-2 psi drop due to line size and distance traveled.

Kenmore chest freezer does not stay below 30 degrees compressor runs but I don't see a fan to cool the compressor


If your chest freezer is less than 50 years old, it does not have a fan. Cooling coils contact inner walls of freezer compartment, warm coils dissipate heat through outside walls of freezer. If compressor runs, temp is 30+ degrees, gasket is OK, lid not left open, then you have one of two contions: 1. Low capacity compressor 2. Refrigerant leak. Solution to either is to replace freezer. (My opinion: Don't get a Kenmore brand, which generally ties you into poor warranty and slow and poor service.) No matter what brand name is on the freezer, it is most likely manufactured by Electrolux (in St. Cloud, MN) or Haier (from China). Look at the model / serial number plate before purchase to see where it was manufactured. Yes, the USA manufactured ones are better. (and I'm not just saying that because the plant is less than 15 miles from where I am sitting right now)

I have a frigidaire freezer upright model#ffu20f9gw3


Without any additional info, there are a lot of possibilities:
1. Condenser coil (underneath unit) is dirty and clogged.
2. Compressor is failing. (need A/C tech)
3. Metering device is clogged. (need A/C tech)
4. Refrigerant charge is low. (need A/C tech)
5. Door seal is broken (frost will form around door).
6. Defrost heaters are stuck on (replace defrost timer located underneath unit at front).
7. Condenser fan has failed (underneath freezer on back).
8. Evaporator fan (inside fan) has failed (ice will form on cooling coil).

This should get you started...

If this helps you, please select YES to the first two ratings questions. Thank you, and Good Luck.

Compressor very hot on Kenmore 7.5 c.f. upright freezer. It is too hot to touch and smells like burning paint, but stayed cold inside. Wondering if this is a bad compressor and about how much it costs to...


Compressors will normally run hot to the touch, but should not have a burning smell. If the compressor does need to be replaced you would be better off getting a new freezer. Compressor replacement with the labor can run into more than a new freezer.

How far can the condensor be located away from ice machine


Their web site has all your answers. Their tech support line is worth the wait. 1-800-233-1940.

I usually don't exceed 25 feet. If it is a straight up install, that is, the remote is on a roof, you may have to install traps to ensure proper oil return to the compressor, Otherwise, it will lockup on ya.
