    Hi,
    1) there is a noise when the chiller need to "kickin"
    2) general health check to make sure the cooling works

    Did you manage to get it sorted Zubair ?

    I bought a chiller. Hooked it up two months ago when it was cold.

    But now that it's warmer this week it hasn't kicked in and the temp is rising above 26 now and set on 25c.

    Also a Haelia.

    Thanks, I did all that when I got it.
    Looks like new... Just does nothing currently :(
    Initially brought tanks temps down due to water leaving tank and going through the radiator etc in cold winter temps .... But has never actually kicked in :(

    Hi. The chiller was unfortunately not repairable. I had been running it for over a year, and I did not maintain it. I was not aware I need to do regular maintenance on a chiller .
    I've learnt the hard way that I must regularly clean radiator and airvents sometimes - Expensive mistake.
    I'm now running a TECO TK 1000 Chiller - and very satisfied with it. Running it 2 month now.

    Thanks Zubair.

    I have logged a call for someone to come one site this afternoon to check it out.

    While I was waiting I though maybe a quick test.
    I set the chiller to 3 degrees C t osee what happens.

    Sure enough it kicked in and I could hear sounds happening.

    After 5min the following happened. Tank went from 24.4 to 24.3 ... almost no change.
    But chiller went from 24.7 to 25.1

    is that normal ?

    Also I now see a blue dot at the top of the screen as well.
    eg 24. & a higher blue dot 4

    Do chiller normally get hotter initially ?
