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. :(

Look inside near the evaporator coil they are usually on the end or in front of the sheet metal cover, they can be hard to find, so the average shopper can't play with it.

Hello Margarito539,

I understand that you purchased a True GDM-41 merchandise refrigerator and you are having a problem with the temperature. The thermostat you are currently using is an in-line thermostat and is not the proper thermostat for the unit I would suggest that you follow the below link and purchase the proper thermostat for the unit. http://restaurant-equipment-parts.com/part/true/800393 the cost is $36.98 and is an OEM part.

You also may need a service tech to check out the freon in the unit. The unit uses 134A freon and must be within a few ounces of charge other wise it will not work properly. As the unit is keeping it 60 degrees, before you do anything make sure that you can hear the compressor running as this is not a cheap fix, however may be worth the cost for the unit you have. The compressor should be humming if it is not and the unit has been plugged in for a while, unplug for about thirty minutes and let the compressor cool. Once thirty minutes has passed plug in and see if the compressor is humming.

After checking the compressor you have two choices if it is humming call a service tech and have them check the freon charge and thermostat or change the thermostat and see if the compressor starts cooling the unit. If the compressor is working then the box is well worth fixing, if the compressor is not working you need to decide if it is worth fixing. A used unit with a one year parts and labor warranty costs $2100 so the repair should not cost over $1000 to be economical.

Thank you for choosing FixYa.com

GDM-41 would be the unit model number???
If you want to get a compressor model number that would be on the compressor tag on the compressor itself. I would not bother with a True part number just get the Copeland or Tecumseh number off of the compressor and get a replacement from a local wholesaler. On this old box do not rule out brittle or shorted wires. I haven't had success with converting a box like this to R-134a unless I change the entire condensing unit and would tend to go with an interim replacement like Hot Shot or R-409A or something like that. The box probably won't last long enough to make R-134a conversion viable.
