    Question about reach in fridge by True Manufacturing

    Hi I have a question I'm trying to charge a reach in but was wondering what the temperature inside the box should be compared to the evap coil temperature. The evap coil temperature is 35 F so what should the ambient inside the box be for a proper charge?

    First, clean the condenser.
    Then, check that the doors are closing correctly and that the gaskets are ok.
    Then, if it still doesn't work, either call a qualified tech or send the unit to the junk pile and buy a new one.

    The true cabinets that I've seen are critically charged.

    I pull the charge, evacuate and weigh it back per nameplate.

    35 deg sst seems kind of high! Evap temp of 25 with 10deg td seems more appropriate

    i agree with jpsmith1cm, don't forget about the juice weight in you hoses. battled one for a day or two, did exactly what he suggested, runs like a timex now. another clown topped it off, off the ampmeter, 4 oz overcharged.. and all it probably needed was a good cleaning
