We have finally splashed our boat
after almost two years on the hard! We are located in Trinidad. The boat
has two Frigoboat keel
cooled refrigerators. The one used as a freezer
started normally and is running fine. The other box set at Refrigeration
temp began cooling
the showed dreaded 3 flash compressor
unable to start code. I put a bag of ice in the unit to try and help with the hot start.
It will now only begin running after sitting for several hours (assuming head
pressure is slow to equalize) . When is does start it runs and cools for maybe half an hour then get the code again.
Have checked voltages and ran a temporary power
wire to a known staple power
supply. Also removed the thermostat and speed control from equation by a jumper between the C and T terminals on the controller. Get the same results.
This unit has been some what problematic in the past. Before heading to the Caribbean
the system was evacuated and recharged because of other issues.
Do you think I have a bad control module or could a problem with the refrigerate be causing this?
Thanks for any help you might be able to offer.
