Question about Paragon 8145-20 Defrost Timer
I have a Larken walk-in freezer. I replaced a paragon 8145-20 defrost time with an identical new one. The condenser is not freezing up and the walk-in shoots up to 50 degrees for hours at a time.

the problem is not necessarily with the timer. it seems you have more than ample time and time allocations to perform a complete defrost. most walk ins should have roughly 25-40 minutes of defrost every 4 to 8 hours. if you defrost with a heating element, you may have a problem with the strength of the element,or the element may be pulled away from the coil. you could also have a problem with the defrost thermostat(allowing the defrost to terminate prematurely)
