Imperial Heavy Duty Commerical Freezer, Only Gets Coldish
« on: December 05, 2021, 07:18:22 AM »

Hello! I just cleaned up my father's old freezer that has been sitting for a few years. Started right up but after about 12 hrs running its only dropped to 59. I can hear the compressor running and the shelves get cold(the condenser) but nothing is freezing up. I can find much info on this freezer but any help would be appreciated!

Hi,


If the compressor is running then your problem is a either a week compressor, low on refrigerant or a combination of both.
In either case it wouldn't be practical to try and repair. Especially with it being over 30 years old.
