I am in need of some feedback concerning my Adler-Barbour Cold Machine (air-cooled), it has stopped working altogether.
In December 2015, I moved from Texas
. I had to leave my boat (Watkins 32) in Texas
until March 2016. The Cold Machine was powered down and the reefer lid was left open. After moving the boat to FLA the cold machine would not work. The symptoms are:
1. No cooling
, no running fan, no running compressor
, no LED.
2. Voltage readings at the Junction Box are 1.3 volts indicating a possible loading problem.
Trying to isolate whether the problem is the load or the line:
3. I pulled the 15A fuse and the voltage returned to normal, 13.5 volts.
4. I reinstalled the fuse and disconnected the power leads that go from the Junction Box to the the Compressor Control box
. The problem returned, 1.3 volts.
I am trying to avoid spending $800 to buy an entire Condensing Unit (Compressor, cooling
fan, junction box, control box). My question is:
Is there another isolation point, electrically closer to the compressor, where I can, break the electrical
line, and take a voltage reading to isolate the Compressor Control box
from the Compressor itself?
Any help would be appreciated.
