Hi, sounds like a challenge. as you know the only differance between gas and electric operation is the method that the ammonia refrigerant is heated. So if it works well on electric, yet not on gas. We need to look at the gas side. Nice blue flame, check gas pressure with a monometer, should read 10.5 to 11.5 Water column inches. The other issue I have seen is that the oils contained in the propane, and restrict the burner orifice enough to lower cooling temps drastically, as the btu of the flame decrease. Digest this a bit, and get back to me we will discuss this further. First of all if it works on electric. its not the cooling unit, which is referred to by the prior service orginization
that you have a monometer your way ahead of the game, we test at the stove. Take the burner jet out and soak in acetone for a bit, dry and reassemble. Have not seen damage done to burners other than clogging due to messy cooks. If necessary after the cleaning, if no change, the orifice can be replaced if we get to that point I will locate it for you. So as you can see its a process. do the pressure test, adjust the regulator or if it wont adjust , replace it, soak the orifice, and if these items dont work, we will move forward. do the adjustments, run overnight, and look at the results of refer temps box and freezer. thanks Michael
Lets talk again when you've done the tests, I look forward to it,, Michael
