Customer: hopefully if not will have to call somebody
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: The manual indicates a "control" setting for too warm or too frozen but I don't see anything like that

Hello, this is not a problem that can be solved by adjustments of any sort, the compressor is not working properly or is low on refrigerant. On the Taylor machines that work always requires a Taylor tech, or a fully experienced commercial refrigeration man.

If you can tell me which direction you are from the center of the nearest town or city I can get you a short list of well rated outfits (hopefully)
