How long for continental double door cooler to cool, once plugged in?
I purchased a used continental 2 door reach in cooler, I can find no temp control anywhere, it does have thermo on front. The fan kickes on and off on top, but the fans inside have yet to run. What could be wrong

Re: How long for continental double door cooler to cool,...
Fans inside should run steady for proper operation of the cooling system. Since you used the term fans I would think you have an open circuit to the fan motors. It may be something as simple as the cord for the fan power is unplugged. This plug would be located under the evaporator cover.

Throw it out and get another model from another company. Their units are junk!
They last a year, at best. Them and Magic Chef are one and the same...so you may have to bite the bullet and get a real unit.
Good luck. I speak from experience...I've had four now. Complete junk!!
The temp lights might indicates the actual temp settings havent reach the programmed settings. If its on and off coz it try to recover the temp lose after it drop below prog. Temp. Monitor it first if its cooling must be normal only.
Possible Causes Response
a. Power cord unplugged
b. No power at all
c. If display lighting, temp setting high
d. If temp setting ok, sensors or control board bad
e. Compressor unit malfunctioning
a. Check for power cord plug
b. Check receptacle voltage & fuses
c. Lower temperature setting
d. Call service for replacing sensors or control board
e. Call service for component check
Check the compressor efficiency. See if it will pump down. In most cases, a good compressor will pull down to about 15" vacuum. Also, be sure that the refrigerant amount was weighed in and not done by pressures only.
First what temperature is it tripping at ? Have you removed the oil fill plug and visually inspected the oil level. It should be filled to the oil fill plug threads. 228 degrees F is the temp the air end temp sensor should trip the unit at, approx. You need to know the ambient temp. where the unit is located. add 100 degrees F to the ambient and that is what the unit should be operating at. ( ex. 100 + 95 amb compressor should operate at approx. 195 degrees F.) If the unit is tripping at 180 or even 215 you probably have a bad temp sensor. It would be unusual for 2 units to have temp sensors go bad at the same time but it could happen. OK if the unit is tripping at or around 228 check the following: Oil/air cooler - (Radiator). It should be clean on both sides. It can be blown out with air or washed out with a 1200 psi pressure washer. When complete you should be able to see thru the cooler, and have good air flow thru it at any location especially corners. Next the thermostat could be the problem. when starting the unit up cold check the return line from the cooler with your hand. If the panel reads 190 to 200 their should be oil flowing thru the cooler. if it stays cool replace the thermostat. The thermostat should open at 170 degrees F. If you have a temp gun use it to check temps on the 3 lines from the thermostat. you are looking for a 25 to 30 degree drop across the cooler. Last but not least if all looks good and the unit is just prematurely tripping you may have a controller going bad. Sometimes these controllers will trip on some alarm. At first it may be once per month then once per week then once per day then several times a day until it gets to where it will not run without tripping on some alarm. Good Luck.
If I am not mistaken, the True line-up of coolers have a temp control on them that is labeled 0-9.
This particular type of temp control is a coil temp control. I measures the temperature of the coil rather than air temperature.
Always set the control to the warmest setting and move it colder by one number at a time until your product reaches and holds designed temp. Do not go by cooler air temperature as there will be a great swing in temp especially if the doors are used frequently. Always temp the product. In the case of beer, your ideal holding temp is between 35-38°.
If you set the temp control to the warmest setting and the cooler is still freezing product, you will need to have the cooler serviced be a refrigeration tech. It will most likely be a bad control but there may be underlying problems.
Sears Kenmore Electric Wall OVen, Mod.#9114012192 purchased in 1993. Set oven for 425 degrees, reaches set temperature, stays on about 10 minutes and temp. display goes out and oven starts cooling down. Will not stay on desired temp.to cook. Can you tell me what my problem is? Thanks. Doug.
