Norlake model 03080290 refreg. is too warm at 50 degree
I have Norlake model 03080290 refreg. and all of sudden this unit's temperature is running around 50 - 55 degree. I tried to dust off the coil and let it turned off for over night but didn't help. This unit is about 3 years old and I need to know whether I should call service person or get a new one. Please help.

Your fan is not designed to run constantly. Your fan will turn on when the set temperature falls 10-20 degrees below set temperature, and will run until the unit is 10-20 degrees above set temperature.
1.) Clean your condenser coil. This coil removes the unit heat.
2.) Check your condenser fan to make sure it is running.
3.) Check the door gaskets. They may be crushed or worn, allowing warm air to enter your unit.
maybe as simple as a temperature switch or sender. if its bad the computer thinks the engine is warm already so it doesnt send a richer fuel signal to start it easier. get it checked out and drive in cold weather again.
This is normal with the dream maker spa. The dream maker spas are poorly insulated, and only run 120 volts with a very small heater.
When the unit is first filled, the hot tub will not heat full time either. Most new hot tubs will have freeze protection below 50 degrees F. They will recirculate automatically using the friction and the pumps heat to warm the water above 50 degrees, and then the heating unit will kick on. These hot tubs do not heat while the jets are on high either, so once you are in it using the jets on high, the temperature will start to fall.
Now that you are up to 80 degrees, it should heat up fairly quick however.
You have to defrost the coil by turnning of the unit and to make it faster leave the inside fan/s running.But if it's building up ice and the fan/s inside works ,is most probably that the unit is low in refrigerant(freon) , or the defrost system is not working.
No probably just frozen up due to door being left open turn unit off and check internal unit have a look on the evaporator (internal unit) see if it has a covering of ice if so leave of utill completly frost free and then restart I bet it will work
They are usually mounted on the front panel of the evaporator or mounted on the wall behind the evaporator.There is a possibility that the temp. control is at the condenser,and the sensing bulb was slipped thru the wall.Look for the bulb at the back of the evaporator and follow the cap tube.
