Note: low suction pressure can result in the chiller tubes freezing and causing catastrophic damage to the machine... If you are not heavily experienced with water chillers, now would be a very good time to call in a chiller expert, and shut the machine down in the meantime.
If you need help with that, tell me which direction you are from the center of the nearest city I will see who I can find.
The no load alarm could very well be caused by an already frozen chiller tube bundle, blocking water flow... that is a very critical situation, shut the chiller off until that is rectified. You could break the chiller tubes otherwise.
There is a lot more we can do, but we need to start there.
