    Winter Wonderland

    Any ideas on what is causing this. Hussman display freezer. (2) 5 door sections on one circuit. hot gas defrost. Fans shut down as soon as defrost starts, delay after defrost. Other case on circuit clear as a bell. all heaters in pan operating in defrost. 20 miniute defrost. 15 min drip. Temp on side outlet of distributor rises quickly to 90 degrees the hovers ther for rest of defrost.

    I think that Tommy Knocker is on it. The system may very well have more than one problem but the first thing to eliminate is the moisture that is getting in to the case. Door gaskets or some other point of infiltration of atmosphere would be my recommendation for a start.

    You may have a defrost problem as well but your box would warm up due to no airflow, coil frozen. Find the water source and correct then give it a good once over to determine if there are other issues. Good luck.
