Arrived at location on 10/19/21 -Checked and found unit to be in de-lime mode. Flipped switch back to normal and then made sure unit was cycling. Checked good at this time. Also explained de-lime mode to customer and how to do it since unit does have a little scale buildup inside.
Arrived at location on 7/27/21 - Found condensate drain line clogged, Customer did not want to empty food from unit so I blew out drain line from the back, unit is draining properly at this time.
Arrived at location on 7/14/21 - Found condensing unit very dirty setting unit off on high temp safety. Cooled unit off with ice and reset limit, cleaned coil with coil cleaner and water. Unit is running with proper amp draw and is dropping in temp properly. Unit is operating properly at this time. Returned on 7/15/21 -Today I arrived and unit running warm, added service piercing valves and found unit low on charge 8 & 102 psi, added 134 a refrigerant and then used electronic leak detector and found evaporator coil leaking on middle right side. Evaporator will need replaced. Please quote new evap,filter line drier and cap tube. Unit is charged up and running at this time.
Arrived at location on 7/4/21 - Found the compressor running, drawing low amperage, and there was no difference between the suction and discharge pressure. Our local supplier did not have a compressor in stock, so I told the customer that they were going to need to move the food elsewhere until we can get a compressor for it. I also noticed one wire of the three phase power was partially melted and that feeds power to over half of the refrigeration equipment. I told the head Chef (Ryan) that they may want to get an electrician there as soon as possible to pull a new wire. Returned to location on 7/6/21 - Picked up new compressor and drove to site. Removed existing compressor, filter drier and site glass and installed new compressor, site glass and filter drier. Ran vacuum on new compressor and removed existing compressor from roof. Charged with 24lb of 404a refrigerant and turned unit on. Unit began to cool. Freezer got down to set point and cycled off. Walk in freezer is working p
Found Reach-In Cooler unit low on refrigerant so I began leak checking the system. I had to drill out some of the old screws for the interior covers to access the evaporator. Once I got the covers off I found that the evaporator is leaking on the bottom left hand side where the tubing passes through the end wall of the coil. It is not repairable and the evaporator would have to be replaced. I remastered covers and replaced screws.. Because the unit had been running while low on refrigerant the compressor had been extremely hot when I arrived. My concern would be that we'd replace the evaporator and then shortly after the compressor would go out. I gave the customer a price on a new Atosa prep table of $2,126.73 Repair $1250. I added refrigerant so the customer can use it for now but I can't guarantee how long it will last.
Arrived on site and found Reach-In freezer at 78 degrees and compressor running. the condensing fan motor was not running and compressor eventually kicked out on overload. Disconnected power and removed condensing fan motor. had an exact replacement on truck stock and installed. turned unit on. freezer kicks into an automatic defrost upon start up. watched box get down to temp. freezer is back up at this time.

Reported the Convection Oven pilot would take a while to light then it would take a while to kick in to heat and when heated, customer noticed a 75 degree difference from center to rack below on left hand side. adjusted spark ignitor and flame switch and unit now ignites on first spark and kicks in to heat within 15 seconds. put two temp probes in one at each location mentioned above. found only 4 degree variance. unit heated and cycled ok. note for customer: pan placement can sometimes change the air circulation causing uneven cooking. also checked temps on bottom oven. temps good on both.
