Compressor shuts down 59516.531G

The compressor shuts down and won't start again for approximately 30 minutes. I have checked the freeze sensor which seems to be fine and working. If I plug the thermostat into the second port on the control box all seems to run OK but will not cycle. 
any suggestions?

Is the compressor too hot to touch when it shuts down? This would indicate a low charge

Refrigerator not cooling.


No the evaporator fan not running has nothing to do with the compressor. I would suspect that you are freezing up over the evaporator because the fan is not running and when it ices up the air can not flow through properly therefore causing the refrigerator side to get warmer. Replace the fan and you should be fine. Take the back panel inside the freezer off and see if you are all iced up. If you bare then I would replace the fan . You also said the defrost heater did not come on. That will also cause a freeze up. Possible replacement of the defrost heater may be needed. Good Luck!

Low ice output


Low ice production has multiple causes. First check condensing coil to see if they are dirty and not passing air. This is the most probable cause for low ice production. Next, measure freeze cycle time and harvest time. Freeze time is typically 20 to 30 minutes and harvest time is normally 1.5 to 3 minutes. If freeze time is long (> 35 minutes), first check water valve shuts after reservoir is full. If it does not shut off the water solenoid operated valve needs replaced. Second, find the harvest solenoid operated valve which branches off the compressor discharge and port high temperature gas into evaporator during harvest and see that evaporator side of harvest valve cools down to surrounding temperature in a few minutes 8 - 10 after freeze cycle starts and harvest time stops. If it does not cool off the valve is leaking by its seat and will require a technician to replace. Lastly, if long freeze cycle could be due to low refrigerant and will require and tech to charge properly. Ice machine are critically charged and a tech will know how to charge the right amount. Again, it is possible the metering device is not passing enough refrigerant and a technician can determine this by checking the superheat and subcool. Low subcooling <3 and a high superheat >20 typically indicate an txv (metering devise) needs replaced and will require a tech to replace.

Blows cold but shuts down no freeze up


Check the capacitor. It should be a dual capacitor , runs both compressor and fan. This sounds like your problem only because both the compressor and the fan go out together. Good Luck Hope I helped

Have a g-23b cratcho granita machine, both sides start up after


if it freezes, the thickness of the mix triggers the torque switch to turn the compressor off. if it doesn't freeze all the way, the overload on the compressor triggers it to shut off to save the compressor from damage. it overloads if it gets too hot or the pressure is too high (also due to heat). make sure the condenser coils on the left side are clean and free of dust and obstructions, and make sure the fan is working to cool it down.

Compressor starts and doesn't stop


Relay for the compressor may be stuck ( Contacts welded) both the fan and the compressor should operate at the same time. Have the relay(s) checked and possibly replaced.

P-tac unit shutting off


Start the unit and check unit data ( suction pressure, discharge pressure, current reading voltage reading, check if no icing at compressor suction pipe and evaporator coil) if everything is normal. check the fallowing.
- check for out of range pressure switches. By pass pressure switches and start the unit if the unit continue to run check which of the pressure switch is open while the unit is running.
- check for defective timer and magnetic contactor or control rely.
- if the unit installed with freeze up sensor then check it also.
- Or the control by itself.
