Delfield Freezers - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

The problem you describe is not very frequent but happent also before. The breaker trips either from oveload and this when the compressor motor find it hard to start up and the second reason from an electrical earth leak from a power point which is again compressor, fan motor and defrost heater. Manytimes everything look to work fine but leak oroverload happens periodicaly and from previus experiance the only way to identify problem is not can be done by just one or two hour visit of a technician but a longtime supervision in a workshop or from owner. This can happent by doing something else in the same room with fridge in order be able to identify if the breaker goes off during a defrost then is the defrost heater, during copressor starting thenis the compressor or compressor starting device or one of fan motors evaporator motor or condenser motor.
As you may understant this is one not easy problem since it only occur periodicaly but with full supervision can be identify especialy from an experience percon and there is not any other option.

This says you have a failed sensor S3. I have searched all available sources and can not find any S3 sensor on any wiring diagram. Suggest calling Delfield as I believe the control needs to be programmed to ignor this as there is probably not sensor on the the unit for S3. Sorry I can't be of further help.

moved you out of comptuers
how cute using slang for the makers name, wow.
DEFfield ,
Id say the defrost , devices in the appliance is dead.
it needs service. (many times there is timer bad inside)
did you read your users guide yet, see the pages marked
if it has no automatic defrost feature that mean you do that.
just like grandma did in 1950s.
1: unplug unit.
2: put pan of hot water in side
3: close door.
4: open door 1hr later and hope you can pry off ice, use a plastic scraper never metal.
I remember doing this in 1960, a boys chore.

If you recovered all the refrigerant how can you have a psi reading? Should be zero, yes? If unit is a refrigerator, proper freon levels are very critical for operation - no leeway as in auto AC's. Need to use accurate scale after using a vacuum pump to purge system and put in exact amount. Too much or too little is no good - have to be spot on.

with such limited information, I can only answer generic. Most of the time it is because the evaporator fan(s) are not running or the evaporator is frozen over. With further info such as model, serial, or more details on behaviors, I could probably helps some further.

Not sure why you would want a -19 degrees when ice cream usually is about -10.
I have had some issue with their freezers not holding temp. Would have a temperature rise and cause the compressor to come on in as little as 4 minutes. Never found the cause. I would cause the compressor to come on and over heat and go out on overload. Sorry but I can not give an exacting answer. This is not normal for most freezers.

300-350 on high side. Way too high. Most all commercial unit are built to live in an environment of not more than about 80. Some survive 85. Above that, it's will die due to over working and heating.

I would suggest charging about 2 oz below label then charge by pressures if it is a TXV. Cap tube is critical charge so i would as the manufacturer of Hot Shot. Not recommended to use hot shot on cap tube systems. My opinion only.

Delfield freezers have defrost in the control. It is a thermostat, defrost control, and other things all rolled into one device. Not adjustable in any way. check the manual for details.
