Question about True T-35

1 Answer

Used t-35 f

I just purchased a True reach in freezer.  When I plugged it in the first time it tripped the GFI receptacle I plugged it into!  On further investigation i found the cord had been replaced and had reversed polarity!  Then I plugged it in again and it ran but did not move any air across the condeser in the top of the unit!?!  I noticed that there doesn't appear to be any thermostat to adjust the temperature... only a timer in the botttom by the compressor!  Any one know what I have going on here?

    I did mean cooling coil and how long should it take to become cold enough?  I ran it for a little under an hour! The fan on the heat exchanger on the bottom kicks on but the one inside the unit at the top does not!  I also am still unable to find a thermostat  is it supposed to be on the visable lower side or above that metal sheild?  P.S. thatnks for the help!

Thermostat for temperature control should be located on the right side of the cooling coil inside. Timer is to start the defrost at preset times according to pegs on the outer dial. Condenser fan motor should come on at the same time as the compressor. Check fan blade for ease of rotation. If it turns hard it can be freed by lubrication. It takes time for the oil to work its way into the unit bearing motor. If there is no oil hole in the top of the fan motor a hole can be drilled in the back cover of the motor at the top. This will give access to the wicking of the bearing for lubrication.

    When you stated condenser at the top of the unit were you intending to say cooling coil? If so the fans do not come on until the coil is cold enough.

I have a 2013 solera have an adapter to plug it into 120 volt gfi recep. to keep batteries charged. When all the breakers are turned on it trips the GFI.

Either the GFI is defective, (try that first) or something plugged into it is shorted. I have seen many GFI trip issues that were related to the device and not what is plugged in to it.

After moving to a new home, the freezer keeps tripping the breaker every few days

My first instinct is to ask you, are you plugging this freezer into a GFI outlet, one which has a breaker switch as part of the outlet? If so, that is the culprit and not the freezer, as refrigerators and freezers will often trip this ground fault indicator because water can on occasion reach ground, which causes the breaker to trip on the outlet.

Test this by plugging the freezer into a non GFI outlet for longer than a few days. Nothing is broken and you dont need refrigerator repair service.

My DW384 circular saw keeps tripping the GFI receptacle

Most houses have all the outdoor GFI outlets on one breaker...perhaps you can try another power tool with a similar draw to check if it is your saw or the GFI causing your problem. I can't see bad brushes causing a breaker to trip... the saw would just stop working.

Pump plugged in to grounded receptacle trips the

If by "trips the breaker" you mean the GFI then you are leaking current to ground, GFI's trip when there is an imbalance between the current going to the motor on the HOT side and returning from the motor on the NEUTRAL side, if it is tripping the GFI it is likely the sign of a failing motor.

My refrid keeps tripping the gfi breaker . I have replaced the gfi but problem continues. Is this most probably a refrigerator problem or a house wiring problem ?

It depends on the GFI size. The refrigerator draws 9.9 amps. If you have a GFI that is too close to this, it will pop. Don't over rate the receptacle unless you have the wiring to match. You could always put in a regular receptacle.

Trips GFI circuit brakers

First of all, lets clarify what is going on. You say it trips the GFI breaker, so I'm assuming that it is not a GFCI receptacle that you are plugging into. So you are going to the electrical panel and resetting the GFCI breaker.  If it were a GFCI receptacle, have you tried other loads in this receptacle for 30-40 seconds, ie: Toaster, hairdryer, coffee pot? If everything works fine then there is something wrong with the ESP8XL. It would seem that there is a leakage path to ground from one of the conductors. If it is new, bring it back.

Trips GFCI receptacle for laundry circuit.

I ran into this problem with a washer this summer. the gfi breaker needs to be replaced. it is weak and trips easily. if you can run an extension cord to an outlet without the gfi andrun your washer, you probably will not have any issues. that is what I found with the washer this summer. when it was plugged into the gfi, itwould trip. but when I had it plugged into a regular outlet, it was fine.

Keeps tripping GFI outlets

The key here is to identify the problem as being either the coffee maker or the GFI receptacle... a simple test can be done as follows...
Try plugging the Coffee Maker into another GFI receptacle .. you may have one in the bathroom? If it trips that too, then you have an internal wiring problem with your coffee maker.. if it doesn;t ..then your GFI receptacle may be bad or on the verge of going bad .. either way..this should narrow the problem down to one or the other.. hope this helps..
