3 Answers

Walk in cooler cycleing

Went to start a walk-in cooler after years of down time. The compressor will run for about 10 seconds then shut off for about 30 seconds then run for another 10 & shut off for another 30. Any ideas?

Hi,
It has lost some freon and is not charged correctly...the unit is pumping down and shutting off on low pressure and then after being off a bit the pressure comes up and it restarts...
Need to check the charge and top it off and you will be good to go..

This walk in cooler was short cycling. runs 10 sec, then shuts off for 15 sec. Was low on freon. Problem was in evaporator coil. All U-bends started to leak, copper corrosion. I end up replacing fan coil. I hope that's was helpful.

most likely that walk-in cooler is low on refrigerant (freon). I made video with the same issue. This refrigerator has small leak, i tried to find leak with soap bubbles, but no luck, so end up charging it with freon and add leak dye, so next time I can find that leak for sure.

@50/300 I assume it's a med. temp R-22 pump down walk in. Head pressure sounds a little high, probably been overcharged to compensate for a restriction in the metering device (or malfunctioning TXV). Check the solenoid (if pump down), metering device, and filter driers first. If that fails, lineset restriction or non-condensables/water in the charge would be next on my list.

Hello,
That condenser fan motor needs to be replaced. You and doing the right thing as far as using a seperate fan to keep compressor cool,buy replacing the fan the compressor will run cooler and click off by being too hot as you have heard/seen.

Find your model number and call your local appliance parts store and see if they have a CONDERSER FAN MOTOR in stock

Freezer motor cuts in and out. Runs for about thirty seconds at a time. Now have red low temp light on and everything is defrosting. Sides of freezer used to be very warm and are now cold.


Good day,
Some kind of compressor problem. If it will run a true 30 seconds then it is either the start relay mounted on the side of the compressor hanging up and not releasing after the compressor starts or the main windings in the compressor are starting to short, causing the compressor to draw too much current followed by the protective overload shutting the compressor down.
The relay is pressed onto the compressor pins and can be removed.

A parts house should be able to test it for you. If bad, replace. If it tests good then the problem is internal to the compressor and would need the attention of a qualified tech.

P.S. If the unit is under 5 years of age, leave it alone and call for factory service. It may or may not be covered but if so it would be necessary to preserve the balance of the 5 year warranty.

It sounds like the internal circuit breaker in the motor is heating up and then the breaker trips to shut down the motor. This is the protection so you don't have a fire if the motor burns up. The smell you have is the coils in the motor. Sorry to say that you will need a new motor for this unit. I hope this helps out.

when its running how hot are the sides the starting amps are too high and 1.5 running amps ain't bad now the the cut in cut out are too high if you look on the dial that the mid point settings that's where you should have it not on 1 1 is hot set it on the straight line that's where you should do all your testing colder settings go up not down you could be overheating the compressor by making it come on too quick the freezer should be about -10 or so do you see any gaps in the gasket
