20 Most Recent Nor-Lake Walk In Cooler 6ft x 6ft x 7ft Norlake NO REFRIGERATION Questions & Answers


Unfortunately, this model has had quite a few problems, because it is such a complicated refrigerator. Many times a shorted component that is connected to the Iceland main control board will affect completely unrelated items making it easy to chase your tail for hours. I would suspect the freezer thermostor - only because we have had to replace it many times in the past.
Suggest you go to the www.searspartsdirect.com and copy the electrical diagram and then verify electrical reading on the main PCB, to try to isolate the problem.

There are a few companys that make temp chart recorders that are battery controled and you could get one of these and just put it inside the refrigerator, problem solved. Check at United Refrigeration, and Johnstone Supply they both have manufacturers that will allow you to keep charts. The 2 things to keep in mind 1 How often are you going to change charts, 2 what temperature range are you looking for.

Oh yes and Im sure there is a company that makes a remote sensed temp recorder that can tie into a computer and print out charts as needed. This is a little more specialized but I know the technology is asvailable. Probably Johnson or Penn Controls would know about this.

If this helps you in any way please rate me as high as you can. If you need to contact me and I can do the searching for you post back.

The Igloo 100 series portable icemakers that are sold all over for about $100 have several minor issues. For ADD WATER light, there are 2 main ones. The water SENSOR is located at the top right of the unit. Remove the BACK cover with 6 screws on the bottom. Remove the TOP assy with 4 screws from inside the case. When the TOP is off, facing the unit from front, you see the small silver wire at the back right. Clean it AND the screw visible thru the hole in the plastic at the end of the sensor wire. The screw is the GROUND side of the sensor. This fixes many of the issues. But the SENSOR senses water FLOW, not water LEVEL. If the PUMP is not moving water, the sensor assumes you are OUT of water and turns on the ADD WATER light. The pump apparently burns out easily. Remove the PUMP wire connector from the CONTROL BOARD and check for continuity in the motor. Be sure your multimeter leads actually touch the connectors. The connection end is too small for most meters, so probe from the backside of the connector. If motor is good, check for 12vdc at the board side of the pump connector. Plug in, turn on. Should be 12vdc within 45 seconds. See, the water pump comes on first. When water is moving over the sensor, then the board will turn on the compressor and start freezing.

The other issue with not making ice is the crazy condenser coil is a PULL THROUGH. Air enters the machine through the bottom and exits the side. Should be the other way around, because the condenser coil easily stops up with lint and other debris in the air. This creates a high pressure condition for the compressor that will either shut the unit down or cook the compressor. Clean the entering air side of the coil with a brush and blow compressed air through from the fan side. to clean the inner portions of the coil.

can't tell exactly, too many variables, your low side pressure should be about 50 - 60 lbs, ( this is merely a guide ) temperature affects this reading. a simple way to tell is add freon and watch you indoor coil if possible. when the entire coil is sweating you are full. if only partial sweat is visible add more, a little at a time, it takes several minutes for this to circulate.

Thermostat fault ... no gas ... faulty wiring. Call a refrigeration engineer to test gas pressure and sensor switch.

Zero degrees Fahrenheit is the correct temperature for a freezer which is -18'C.

Also, that may be the 'Set Temperature' as opposed to the temperature inside the cabinet.

If it remains that way (warm), you need an engineer.
