True Refrigeration GDM-26 Compressor problem?

Okay I have a True Refrigeration GDM-26 Cooler. I plug the cooler in and about 20 seconds later it makes a loud noise and the light inside the cooler flickers and the the compressor sounds like it kick off for a second and then starts back up. It does the same thing in about another 20 seconds. I turned the cooler temperature down to 0 and the light stayed on and had no problems. The only thing is at 0 the cooler doesnt get cool, but it did solve the problem. To make the noise more clear, at first I thought the fan was catching on something underneath but looked closely and found nothing in the fans path. I need this solved as soon as possible. Thanks for your time. my e-mail address is nsc_party@yahoo.com if you need any more details. Thanks -Nick

    Cooler not getting cold, it used to be loud, now the only thing I hear is the fans and it is blowing out warm air. How do I determine if the compressor is working or what the issue is with my cooler.

More than likely you need a new compressor. It sounds like it's trying to start and then trips on it's overload or capacitor may be out.

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!)

True GDM-10 Drink Cooler from 1997...


A good test method is buy a rco-410 hard start relay. Once you have it, cut an old plug off something and leaving the plug intact, splice the two wires at the cut end with the two wires on thet really that don't have metal ends. Once that is done securly, unplug the fridgem take the really off the compressor and hook up the home made compressor tester. Once plugged in if the compressor is good it will come on, it it doesn't it's bad. This works becuase you remove any variables that are present with the machine hooked up normal.

HOW AND WHERE DO YOU ADD FREON TO THE GDM-12 TRUE COOLER?


This whole idea is something you should have a qualified refrigeration technician doing. There's a point in the piping from the compressor to the radiator fins, which can be located behind, underneath or inside behind a plastic panel, where the freon is both installed and removed. It requires special equipment to do both and if you get moisture in the system you can pretty much kiss it good bye. Let a pro do this.

Interior Lighting on True Refrigerator Unit


A starter may be located in the top area inside the cooler. Not all true coolers have starters. Check the connections where the light pins slide into. Also may need new ballast.

turn thermostat all the way to the left to turn it off. restore power and see if it stays on and inside fan is running. Then turn thermostat to rite to turn on compressor. If the power trips when turning thermostat back on, the compressor may be bad. :(
