This was a service call on an Iced up walk in freezer evaporator coil. Once I got the coil defrosted we found that the cause was the food delivery driver leaving the door open too long. Please leave me some feedback and consider subscribing to my channel.

    I’m gonna try some of your suggestions, my freezer is inside of my cooler so the only air that gets to the freezer is 38 to 40°, so the door gasket should not be that big of an issue I would not think,This unit was completely new three years ago, also how important is it that the freezer door that is inside the cooler the shut at all times,And does the ice on the ceilings and walls contribute to the problem, thank you

    Wouldn't some plastic air curtains help block most of the humid air from entering unimpeded inside and aid in trying to help maintain the box temp from rising to rapidly while the door is open and when they are doing their restocking? Just my take on this service call you came onto. Thanks for posting and keep up the the videos.

    I installed a ceiling mount low air flow model in a walk-in cooler. I was having problems with ice building up on one side of it, and the instructions were not correct that came with it for superheat adjustment. I contacted Russell service and the superheat for the low air flow model was to be three to four degrees for a walk-in cooler. I remember when I started it up when I had it around seven eight degrees the TXV with hunt all the time. Got it down to three to four degrees and the hunting stopped. I had a short line set so I installed a heat exchanger in it to try to get a little more superheat at the compressor. How to replace the liquid line solenoid for the lower liquid line Temps. If you work on something like this and you're getting frosting on one side a quick email to Russell tech support you might get instructions that are different than the ones that come with the equipment. Once I got the three to four degrees superheat on that walk-in cooler the icing problems went away.
