The best thing to do would be to recover the 404a into a clean recovery jug,weighing how much you take out. Check the nameplate on back it will tell total ref charge. in either oz or lbs. then weigh the charge back into the unit. this is the best wayto verify if you have a proper charge.If the unit is low on charge then you will want to find and repair the leak as soon as possible.

Hello I have a 8754 Taylor and having trouble with the (chocolate)left side of the machine.The product goes soft after I've served about fifty cones. this is what I've tried *installed all new o rings...


sounds like a freon like to me if the compressor is running for long periods and not freezing properly or you have a water pressure issue. if it is water cooled which alot are it is hard to realize you have a freon leak.

I have a Taylor 794 soft serve machine. The left side is too soft.


Viscosity adjustments should not have to be made frequently on these machines. If you change products a lot, such as flavors of yogurt, minor adjustments may be required. If your machine uses 3 phase electricity and it machine has been moved or any electrical work performed you may want to check the beater rotation, the beater should rotate clockwise inside the barrel viewing from the front, if you look at the gear box from the back, the pulley should be turning clockwise as well. Otherwise, there is a fine tuning potentiometer on the control, you must remove the front cover to see it. Clockwise is colder/thicker. I recommend small adjustments. It is best to read the amp draw on the motor to see what type of amps it is drawing. If your mix is soft and your motor is drawing 4 amps, you may have another type of problem such as a bad motor. The board and control can also fail giving these problems. There are many things to check in addition to these. Hope this will help you get started.

I hooked up my gauge run the unit and sees the high side pressure goes up, the compressor overheating and shuts off. I checked the water pressure regulator valve it good. so I unwelded the condensor coil...


It sounds like you may have unwelded the suction line to the compressor and blew the compressor out. That is not good. How a Taylor works is this: Compressor comes on and produces a lot of heat. There are 3 ways to dissipate the heat. If there is a big radiator like set of copper and aluminum finned coils near the compressor it is air cooled. If there is a water line going in and a drain line coming out, it is water cooled, the water runs the whole time the compressors are running, the third way is to have an outside remote condenser coil. I believe you have a water cooled machine. On the back of the machine is a copper fitting to hook up the incoming water lline. There is also a drain line and water will flow constantly from it if everything is running alright. It is ok for the compressor to get hot when running, it is supposed to get hot. If you broke into the freon lines by mistake, the freon is gone and it won't show pressure anymore. I don't see any way that oil would have gotten into the water cooling line. To verify which is the cooling water, the copper lines will go into the back of the machine and will be wrapped around the outside of the compressor and then back to the drain at the back of the machine. If you blew the oil out of the compressor it will very soon lock up and be destroyed. Look at the line that you cut into.
