    Good day guys please can you help
    I bought a second hand chiller and it seem like it has a problem.
    When I turn it on its silent for a few minutes then the fan kicks in making a louder noise then I expected. Then a minute or so later all the light trip.
    So it's shorting out.
    Make hailea hc 1000 bc

    Is there anywhere I can take it to have a look or repair it
    Any help is appreciated

    Regards Michael

    you can try an LFS to contact the supplier, or any refrigeration company

    Been there done that. The problem is the floating bearing in your fan module of your chiller has seized. This causes excessive load on the fuse and it subsequently fuses

    This happens after years of corrosion. If you can open the unit and take the motor to an engineering shop, I am most certain yo can have it repaired. I did.
