    Taylor 794 Soft Serve Machine Help - Trips circuit breaker when switched off

    My Taylor typically trips the circuit breaker when I plug it in (left side only). The right side works normally but because the left hand side controls the mix refrigeration, the machine is worthless. The times when the breaker doesn’t trip, the set point, mix low, mix and wash lights come on bright. The auto and pump lights come on dimly. This happens even though the machine is off. I swapped the control boards with no success. I don’t understand. Cleaned the machine up today and when sterilize it. I flipped the breaker and the machine was beeping which was normal and then the breaker tripped and I’ve have no success since. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You don't have a refrigeration problem , you need someone whos has a very strong experience with electrical problems .....

    If It were me , id tell them up front , youre not paying them a dime unless they can repair it , otherwise someone whos not so good at diagnosing will rack up a huge bill for nothing ...

    Since you said that this is "your" machine, I have to assume you are the equipment owner. Our site rules prohibit us from walking you through any dangerous repairs.

    From personal experience, I can tell you that the only way you get to learn anything about a Taylor machine is to take their class. Tech support will not help unless they know you have taken that class.

    If it's on a GFCI breaker or receptacle try it on one that isnt.

    And take note.....you do need someone who has taken their class..... because these machines are not built using the same approach as your typical reach-in cooler or freezer.

    The issue has been solved. Effectively, water condensate got into the power switch whic is why the lights on the machine would come on even though it was off. Once everything was dried out, normal operation resumed. I did call the Kappus company and spoke with a technician. They are solid people. Thanks to all who responded. The safe way is the only way.
