Freezers - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

most all appliances are designed to be in an ambient not to exceed 80 degrees. Units will function but not up to design specs and would really strain to work. Only commercial unit can survive in temps up to 95 degrees in the Southeast U.S. and this temp varies depending on your general location.

In general, when the conditioned space is close to the desired temp, usually about +10 degrees, is where I would start checking as most freezers are about 0 to -10 degrees. I would look for a super heat 6-8 degrees and nothing less than 4 just before unit shuts off. This is usually the most common numbers used for most all freezers. Good luck!

First question would be, is the compressor running? If yes, then there is a refrigeration issue. If no, then there is either a control issue or compressor component issue. We really need to do the question and answer "game" in order to troubleshoot. Let me know if I can be of any possible help. Good luck!

I can only suggest, at this time, to try and trouble shoot your issue(s) via traditional procedures. In most all cases, a wiring diagram can get you thru most troubles. So sorry I can not be of any further help. I also tried to location info on the internet and struck out at every turn. Let me know if I can be of any possible help. Good Luck!

I have been doing refrigeration work for over 30 years and have never heard of a "rebuild manual" for any unit ever build by any manufacturer. Try to phrase your question with specifically what you want to do and include the serial number as this may also help you cause. Good luck and hope this is of some help.

Need more info.
Generally, Hoshi freezers have 2 sensors and a limit in the evap compartment. One sensor is for conditioned space temp, one is for evap temp, and limit if for the heater.
Basically, while in defrost, the controller monitors the evap temp, and when it reaches approx. 70 degrees, the defrost should terminate. The limit kills power to the heater should it get too hot prior to defrost termination. I would first check to see if heater is getting power, if not, check the limit as they go bad frequently. If it is getting power but the defrost termination is happening too early, I would replace the probes first as it is the cheaper route and even if the controller is bad, I would not replace it without doing the probes too. The safety in the controller is usually set for if the unit does not terminate defrost on temp, it will terminate on time, usually 1 hour set at factory specs. Let me know if you need any further help.
