Just to make sure--is the freezer plugged into a GFI outlet and is the little red button pushed in? Is it on it's on circuit and has it thrown the breaker?Have you tried a different outlet? Do you have any lights at all- showing power? did you have a power outage? If you had apower outage and it ruined your freezer, your homeowners insurance may cover it. I would have it looked at for an estimate.Ask ahead what a service call costs, and make a decision from there.

Hi.. I have a defy upright freezer.. it is currently displaying an error "c2 !". Defy say this is because of the change in outside temp. Is this true, how long is it supposed to last? Many thanks.


If unit is not in a controlled environment yes temp will be confused and will take 24 hour to correct but if outside temp is changed it will do again and again all units designed for controlled temp room not outside in garage or out buildings with no heat or cooling controled room

Hello my freezer is not cooling properly and the defrost timer is . making a loud buzzing noise. Please help


Your freezer compartment will freeze up and not cool properly if the defrost timer does not allow the unit to go into its self defrosting mode to get rid of the ice that serves as an insulator.

Replace the timer.

Regarding replacing the temperature control on the True t-23f freezer, I can't find it.


As soon as you open the freezer door the temp control is at the upper right of the freezer.

The first thing to check is the condenser coil at the bottom of the freezer. Take the slatted front cover off at the bottom where the compressor is located. You will see the conderser coils. This looks like a radiator with aluminum fins, about 16 by 16 inches square. Be sure the coils are clean. Since the compressor is close to the floor it pulls a lot of dust into the coils. You may need to take a long stiff bristle brush to get as much dust as possible off the coils. If this is stopped up, the unit will definately overheat very quickly. While you are down there make sure the fan behind the coils is running. There are several reasons the fan might stop running. The motor can burn out, something can impede the fan blades such as paper, or sometimes rodents. If the fan isn't running the compressor will overheat and shut off. Once you check these basic things, you may then have to address the problem of dissapating the heat. The answer to your question is yes, it will shut down if it gets too hot. You need plenty of air space behind and over the unit in your situation. The air needs to flow into the front bottom section of this unit and flow freely out the back. All commercial refrigeration is designed to operate in 75 degree areas. As your room temperature increases the efficiency of the freezer will decrease. It is not uncommon to find these units in kitchens where the temperature is 85 even 90 degrees. They will continue to work, but will probably run all the time. I would think if you could get 3 to 4 inches of space at the back of the unit and the two feet above the unit with clean coils and properly running fans, you should get better results. You MUST have free flowing air to keep the unit running. The ideal situation is to have the air flow directly through from front to the back of the compressor compartment. In your case, you may have to move the freezer away from the back wall and allow the air to flow up the back of the freezer and out over the top into the room. 2 inch holes are not enough.

My freezer will freeze for about 2weeks then it starts to get warm when I turn it off for about 6hrs it will refreeze


It sounds to me like the defrost isn't working somewhere.It freezes for 2 weeks until the evaporator coil freezes over and you lose your airflow, hence, your cooling. Then when you shut the unit off for 6 hours it thaws out enough to get you cooling again for 2 weeks.Check your defrost timer and see if it is going into defrost and if your defrost elements are good. Both will be located on top of the unit. Good luck!

I have a True Freezer Model T-49. It works fine but every 3 or 4


This sounds like a stuck relay to me. I have seen this problem before. The defrost clock kills power to the compressor relay coil during defrost. If the contacts in the relay are welded together the compressor runs while unit is trying to defrost. On newer units this relay is mounted in base of unit on the side or back of the electrical box near center bottom of unit. The compressor relay is a small rectangular box with 4 wires attached. It can be replaced with a single pole 20 amp contactor with a 120 volt coil/ or 240 volt. Check the units name plate voltage rating and ratings on old relay! ;)

True commercial freezer


The ice could be preventing the freezer from freezing properly, try defrosting the unit. if this does not help then this could indicate a more serious problem like a bad temp sensor or refrigerant leak.
