omnitemp condensing unit m#wa1-ac-h-2-0-3 s# 5023-j05 it has 2 compressors one for walk in cooler one for walk in freezer. seperate circuits but share the same condenser coil. the condenser fan motor failed mechanically bad bearings. it has a motor controller in series m# hc 706 so i called local motor supply. after the run around they didnt have it. its a dayton so i called grainger motor is discontinued so they cross referenced it to a new model i installed it and hosed down the condenser coil. started it up. new motor wouldn't operate with this speed controller. for low ambient conditions. it also has 2 head masters for low ambient. so i eliminated it once i started it up the fan runs full speed. but my liquid line for both cooler and freezer was 115 degrees. the aluminum fins are seperating form the copper tubing alot of corrosion buld up inside the coil. but my cooler evap has a 7 degree split and my freezer has a 5 degree split they are both pulling down. my first time at this school maintenance guy and kitchen staff said it hasnt drok in atleast a year. motor is running full speed and i made sure the tip of the blade is above the fan shroud so the air doesnt get recirculated into the condenser. a few questions
i usually see a 4 degree split for evaps on freezers is good. Whats the temp difference yall look for?
Also would this speed controller be considered a potentiometer i googled it but couldnt really find info. from my understanding the only way to slaow down a motor is to slow the frequency down (vfd) or potentiometer im guessing is a variable resistor that increases the resistance in turn slows the fan down not allowing voltage to flow through freely.???
