INSTALLATION & MAINTENANCE MANUAL Ko l d te c h Ref r i ge rato r & F re eze r


The following procedure should be followed for trouble free installation


Check for transit damage : Upon receipt of goods, both dealer/customer must carefully check the merchandise for any defective. If there is evidence of damage on the package or on the unit itself, dealer/customer should immediately inform Welbilt Manufacturing (Thailand) Ltd, hereunder regarded as “WELBILT�, and file a complaint with the freight delivery representative. What to do if damage is found: Photos shall be taken if any damage or defective part is found, including the nature of package as received, and provided to Welbilt or dealer for investigation and further action. If no such photos of damage or defective part(s) are taken, WELBILT will not be responsible for any damage that is found afterwards. Record keeping : Once goods have been accepted, proper documentation should be performed and properly kept to avoid future dispute and for future reference in case there is a warranty claim. 3

Relevant record for the unit should be kept for future reference :  Operation manual  Unit serial number, production job number  Copy of invoice and proof of purchase  Factory test report  Contact number for the dealer whom you purchase equipment from


The location should be  Level, Firm and Dry surface  Well-ventilated  Away from heat sources or excess humidity  Temperature should not exceed 32oC  Relative humidity should not exceed 80% In the event of high relative humidity, condensation may form on the cabinet. This will not impact on the ability of the cabinet to maintain internal temperature. Should ambient temperature exceed 36oC we cannot guarantee the maintenance of internal temperature to required specifications.







 Minimum clearance above the cabinet should be 300 mm.  Minimum clearance behind the cabinet should be 100 mm.  Minimum clearance on the side of the cabinet should be 50 mm.


 Minimum clearance on the side of the cabinet should be 50 mm.  Minimum clearance behind the cabinet should be 150 mm.  Minimum clearance above the cabinet should be 50 mm.


ď ś If two units are to be placed opposite to each other, DO NOT place them so that the condensing units face each other (see diagram).

ď ś If they were to be placed perpendicular to each other, DO NOT place them so the condensing units are adjacent to each other (see diagram).


 Relative Humidity should not exceed 75% or condensation may form on the glass.  Ideal ambient temperature should not exceed 28°C. Ambient temperature higher than 28°C may increase the unit cooling time. TEMPERATURE



 Do not place unit near heat generating equipment.  Do not place unit where there is an exposure to direct sunlight.


ď ś Ventilation grills must not be obstructed. ď ś Blocking air ventilation may cause damage to the unit and void warranty.




Most of KOLDTECH models employ self evaporate drainage system, using recycled heat from the refrigeration system. Some special models may require external drain line. Connect the external drain line if required before you proceeding.

Precaution has been taken to ship the unit in an upright position. If the unit is tilted during transit lubricating oil may shift from the reservoir. Operating the unit may cause excessive wear or damage to the compressor’s moving parts. It is recommended that the unit be left standing upright for 24 hours before operation. 11

 Earth Ground : For safety reasons, the equipment must be properly earth grounded to prevent the possibility of electrical shock. Check and make sure that the outlet is properly grounded. If a grounded plug is not available, a separate earth ground must be installed to prevent any electrical hazard.  Proper rated or circuit breaker or fuse must be installed in the outlet circuit.  Check for proper supply voltage before plugging in the unit. Please refer to voltage requirements on the nameplate of the unit.  Proper rated circuit breaker or fuse…….


 Observe unusual noises and vibration during the first hour of operation.  After initial startup allow the unit to reach operating temperature, approximately 1 – 1 ½ hour before loading product. Do not overload product and block the air flow.  Placing many warm or un-refrigerated products in the cabinet at one time will increase the time it takes for the products to cool down to the appropriate temperature.  The temperature display on the controller is merely the temperature at the return air in front of the Evaporator coil. It is not the product temperature.


To prevent compressor damage, the unit is equipped with a Time Delay Circuit, which shall activate compressor in approximately 2 minutes after turning on the power or after restarting.

ď ś The controller is pre-set from the factory for optimum operation. ď ś Any service performed by unauthorized service agent or unauthorized tampering with the unit may cause damage and will void the warranty. ď ś Contact your dealer or an authorised service agent if there is any service required.

 Contact your dealer or an authorised service agent for any service or adjustment required.  Any service performed by unauthorized service agent or unauthorized tampering with the unit may cause damage and will void the warranty. 21

 During the defrost cycle the the controller.

LED is activated and deF or dF is displayed on

Temperature displayed on the controller will rise slightly for a short period. This is not a fault and no action is necessary during this period. The defrost cycle will be terminated automatically when the probe on the evaporator coil reports a rise of temperature to a value set on the controller Manual Defrosting : If for any reason, a manual defrosting is necessary, it can be activated by Push and hold the defrost button

for 2 seconds.


Probe alarms:  In case one of the probes malfunctions, the controller shall report Probe alarms (P1, P2….)  The controller has been pre-programmed from the factory to operate on time sequence.  Customer should contact dealer and have the probe changed as soon as possible.

Controller malfunction:  If there is malfunction in the controller, the unit will not be able to operate.  One of the main causes of controller failure is the frequent fluctuation of the supply power.  Take care to switch off and unplug the units while there is high fluctuation of the supply power to prevent damage to the unit.  Unit can resume operation when voltage stabilizes. 23

The maintenance instructions below are for basic maintenance that should be done on a regular basis by the owner/operator.


To ensure proper maintenance and long service life of your unit, there is a simple four step process that should be followed when cleaning Stainless Steel surfaces, P.V.C. surfaces and display glass. These processes are as follows: Step One

Ensure that the unit is switched off at the power point and unplugged.

Step Two

Clean interior and exterior surfaces using damp cloth and warm mild soapy water. Food particles and spillage should be promptly removed to avoid build-up of bacteria and odor.

Step Tree

Thoroughly rinse or wipe all surfaces with dampened soft, clean cloth or sponge.

Step Four

Finally, polish with dry soft cloth. 28

Do not use aggressive cleaning agent or solvents for cleaning. Avoid using cleaning agent with mixture of chlorine or detergent. Do not use sharp instrument, wire brush, steel wool or grainy scouring pad. In some areas, particularly in seaside locations, stainless steel can be subject to surface discoloration or “tea staining�. This can be removed with an appropriate cleaning agent that contains 10% Sodium citrate. Ask your supplier of cleaning chemicals for a suitable brand. Be sure to clean and rinse off all surface well offer stain removal. 29

Please ensure that the schedule below is followed to maintain the appropriate storage conditions for your food and to prolong the life of your cabinet. Maintenance List

 The condenser coil should be inspected and cleaned at least once every month. The frequency of cleaning depends on the amount of dust in the surrounding area of the installation.  Non-metallic brush, vacuum cleaner or air blower can be used to dislodge dust from the condenser fins.  Failure to undertake routine maintenance may cause damage to the unit and will void the warranty. DO NOT  Do not hose down the unit.  Do not expose any electrical components to moisture or water. If the unit gets wet, turn it off and unplug it from the wall outlet immediately.  Do not turn it on again until the unit is completely dry or after inspection by a qualified service technician. Should the unit be left unused for an extended period, all food items should be removed. The interior surface and shelves should be cleaned thoroughly. Unplug the unit from the power source and leave the doors slightly opened. 31
