1.0 — General Information and Installation
1.1 INTRODUCTION
1.4 EQUIPMENT SUPPLIED
The Alto-Shaam® Quickchiller is a processing
refrigeration system designed to rapidly and uniformly
cool hot foods through the "chilling danger zone" of
140° to 40°F (60° to 4°C) in two hours or less. Fast
cooling minimizes microbial activity, thereby
controlling quality and sanitation in prepared foods.
As a result, a five-day storage life is achieved.
Chill processing stops all cooking activity. This enables
the operator to accelerate additional preparation
sequences. Chilling also enhances the freshly prepared
characteristics of foods.
Quick chill processing of prepared foods provides a
means to build refrigerated inventories of meals in
individual portions and bulk quantities. Chilled
inventories can be withdrawn and reheated as
required. For complete, comprehensive operating
instructions, refer to booklet No. 265, Quickchiller
Operating Procedure Guidelines.
The Quickchiller is shipped from the factory fully
assembled. The complete assembly is palletized
and crated to minimize the possibility of damage
in shipping and storage. The roll-in cart is
shipped separately. See Figure 1.1.

1.5 RECEIPT AND UNPACKING
Upon receipt of the Alto-Shaam ® Quickchiller, note
any crate markings for special instructions and
check for crate damage. IMMEDIATELY notify the
carrier if there appears to be damage to the
equipment. The chiller is shipped from the
factory, securely fastened to a single shipping
pallet and protected by an external wrapping.
Carefully remove all external wrappings and other
protective coverings. If all is in order, discard
crating materials.
After leveling the cabinet, check the height
relationship of the roll-in cart to the cabinet.
Adjust Quickchiller height as needed.
1.6.3 DOOR SEAL: Check the door gasket to make
certain it is sealing properly and that the
gasket provides an even and positive seal
around the entire door frame.
1.6.4 DRAIN HOSE: A single drain hose and floor
drain are required.
FIG. 1.6.4 PLUMBING: MODEL QC-50
1.6 INSTALLATION
Note: In certain instances, it may be necessary to
remove doors and door hardware to
negotiate tight spaces.
1.6.1 SITE SELECTION: Position the Quickchiller to
allow sufficient air ventilation through the
condensing unit(s). Rear of unit should be no
closer than 6" to any wall or structure.
Avoid installing the chiller immediately
adjacent to fryers, charbroilers, or any other
equipment producing grease laden air; heat
producing equipment such as ovens and
ranges; and steam discharging equipment such
as steamer ovens and kettles.
Allow sufficient front clearance for serviceability
and for easy maneuvering of food trolleys in and
out of the cabinet.
1.6.2. INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS: Install the
Quickchiller on smooth and level floor surface.
Use the adjustable cabinet legs to level the unit.
Adjust from front-to-back and from side-to-side
to evenly distribute the cabinet weight and
avoid pulling the cabinet alignment out of
square.
8-3/4 "
(222mm)
3/4 " (19mm)
DRAIN
9"
(229mm)
Prior to moving the Quickchiller to the installation
site, check the dimensions of doors, passageways,
and ceiling heights in the areas through which the
cabinet must be moved. Also check the turning
radius if the cabinet must be moved around an
existing structure.
1.6.5 REMOTE CONDENSING UNIT GUIDELINES
Installation must be performed by certified
and authorized refrigeration service personnel
or warranty is void.
Interconnecting liquid and suction line sizes for
Quickchillers are as follows:
Quickchiller

QC-100R
Condensing
Unit
Both
Large
Small

3/8"
3/8"
Suction Line
Size
3/8"
7/8"
5/8"
7/8"
Separation distance between the Quickchiller and
condensing units must not exceed fifty (50) feet
with zero (0) lift. Liquid line lift (Quickchiller
elevation above that of condensing unit) reduces
allowable separation distance significantly.
Satisfactory refrigerating capacity is possible with
condenser entering air temperatures below 115°F.
Insulate both suction and liquid lines.
Suction lines should be pitched down 1/2" in 10' of
run in the direction of flow. A "P" trap (closely)
connected) is required for vertical risers greater
than 3 feet in elevation.

2.3 START-UP TEST
2.3.1 With the chiller door closed, test the door
buzzer and door switch by entering the hold
cycle. Press "B" on the keyboard when the
Main Menu screen appears on the display. The
compressor will become audible. After a
period of 60 seconds, open the unit door. A
buzzer should sound and the display will
prompt the operator to close the door.
2.3.2 Close the door and allow the unit to operate
for approximately 10 minutes. Verify the
operating time with the timer which appears in
the upper right-hand corner of the Hold Mode
display screen. If the timer does not indicate
the correct amount of time, begin the SET-UP
procedure once again.
2.3.3 With the food probe(s) remaining in the
appropriate holder (no product) verify a
decrease of the temperatures appearing in the
display. The temperatures displayed should
start at the approximate room temperature and
decrease from that point. If any of the
temperatures displayed are above 120°F (49°C),
considerably above normal room temperature,
contact the Alto-Shaam Service Department.
2.3.4 Following the 10 minute test operation period,
press "D" on the keyboard to exit the hold
mode. Open the unit door and make certain
the interior walls of the unit are cold.
2.4 SEQUENCE OF CONTROL OPERATION
2.4.1 Refer to Tables 2.4.1 and 2.4.2 for an overview
of control operations. For more information,

CONTROL MODE OVERVIEW
Mode
Operation Description
Auto Chill Refrigeration is controlled only by the food probe(s). Refrigeration
continues until all food probes achieve chill setpoint temperature,
whereupon the control automatically enters HOLD Mode.
Timed Chill Refrigeration is controlled by chill time entered and the cabinet air
sensor. While chilling, the cabinet air temperature may become excessively cold prior to chill time expiration. The cabinet air sensor will then
cycle the refrigeration system OFF and ON, at cabinet air temperatures of
15°F (-9°C) and 20°F (-7°C) respectfully, until chill time expiration. The
control automatically enters Hold Mode upon chill time expiration.
Hold Refrigeration is controlled by the cabinet air sensor only.
Auto Defrost Only the evaporator coil defrost heaters are operational with a 20
minute time limit. A coil mounted defrost heater terminator switch
(thermal) limits the coil temperature to 60 °F (15 °C) maximum until 20
minutes expire. Auto Defrost occurs automatically after six (6) hours
of continuous evaporator fan operation. The six hour "count-up" is
overridden in either Chill Mode.
Manual Defrost Can only be selected in the HOLD Mode. See Auto Defrost for
operation. Upon completion of a manual defrost, the Quickchiller will
not automatically default to the Hold Mode. Control mode selection is
required.
NOTE: For optimum performance, utilize Manual Defrost at the start and end of each service day.

EVAPORATOR FAN, DOOR HEATER & CONDENSING UNIT OPERATION
OPERATION SPECIFICS
Evaporator ✓ Controlled by door switch and evaporator coil mounted for terminator switch (thermal).
Fan(s) ✓ OFF when door is opened.
✓ OFF with coil temperature above 60°F (15°C).
✓ ON with coil temperature below 30°F (-1°C).
Door Heater ✓ ON and OFF with evaporator fan(s).
Condensing
Unit(s) ✓ Controlled by a low pressure switch (cut-out @ 2 PSIG, cut-in @ 18 PSIG).
✓ Upon control mode satisfaction, the liquid line solenoid valve closes to begin a
low side pump-down with condensing unit shutoff at 2 PSIG.
✓ Upon call for refrigeration, the liquid line solenoid valve opens which increases
low side pressure to condensing unit start at 18 PSIG. Refer to Section 2.7, ShutDown Procedure for additional details.
NOTE: The RTD sensor(s) mounted to the evaporator coil serves no controlling
purpose and is for displaying coil temperature for reference only.

2.5 MAIN MENU
HOLD MODE SCREEN
The main menu is the starting point for all
functions of the Quickchiller. This includes
starting the hold, defrost, and chill cycles; report
printing; and changing the system configuration.
There are four main options shown on the main
menu screen. These options are selected with
control keyboard buttons "A" through "D." The
remaining options are initiated by holding down
a number button for 5 seconds. These options
are used to test the chiller, and to view or
change the configuration of the chiller.

in any cycle; hold, chill, or defrost. The precise
time the door is opened is recorded in memory
and can be obtained on a print-out.
2 . 6 OPERATION WITH FOOD PRODUCT
Stage 1:
Stage 4:
Prior to introducing product to the cabinet, the
unit should be operated in the timed chill mode
for thirty minutes. This procedure will reduce
the temperature of the interior components and
the cabinet air sufficiently to be able to accept
hot food products.
Upon satisfaction of the Chill Mode selected, the
system will revert to the hold mode.
Stage 2:
Roll the roll-in cart into the Quickchiller, select
mode and start operation.
Stage 3:
At a factory adjusted set-point the smaller
condensing unit will cycle OFF allowing the
larger system to continue the temperature
pull down process.
Stage 5:
Once the system has run through prolonged or
consecutive quick chill cycles, it may be
advisable to place it through a manual defrost.
The system will automatically defrost in the hold
mode — BUT ONLY IN THE HOLD MODE. A
manual defrost can be initiated and, depending
on unit usage, may be necessary to maintain
proper operation.
Adequate spacing must be allowed between
pans for proper air circulation for both the
chilling function and subsequent storage.

SERIAL PRINTER:
The printer MUST have an internal buffer of at least 1K
bytes. Since the printer must be able to maintain the same
pace as the control, and there is no printer handshaking,
printers with smaller buffers simply cannot keep up. The
printer must also conform to RS-232 standards and must be
able to print using only the TX and GND lines (i.e., without
hardware handshaking or software handshaking
(XON/XOFF). Nearly all serial printers can print without
handshaking. The printer should be connected to the
control with a NULL serial cable.
The unit will display a Stop Prompt screen as a
safeguard against accidental shut-down.

4.0 — Diagnostic and Repair Procedure — CONTROL
4.1 INTRODUCTION
4.2.1 SOLENOID CHECK:
The relays, which control the compressors, fans,
solenoids, and heaters, can be individually controlled
by the microprocessor control set in a manual mode.
The following test will verify that these components
are being controlled and will verify the operational
integrity of the relays and fuse sets.
4.2 CONTROL DIAGNOSIS
The main menu is the starting point for this test. With
the Main Menu screen displayed, press and hold "0" on
the numeric keyboard for approximately 5 seconds to
access the password screen.

P A S S W O R D : ________________
When the Password Entry screen is in view, enter the
password code on the alphanumeric keyboard.
PASSWORD
91095340D
If the wrong password number is entered in error, a
buzzer will sound and the display will revert to the
Main Menu screen. Access the Password Entry screen
again and enter the correct password number.
A correctly entered password will result in a
diagnostic screen.

Pressing the numerical keyboard numbers 1 through 8
will toggle the power to an individual relay. Buttons 1
and 2 represent the two solenoid relays, while buttons
3 and 4 control the relays for each of the two fan banks.
Buttons 5, 6, and 7 control the three relays which control each pair of heater wraps. Button 8 controls two
relays, each of which controls a single condensing unit.
Press button 1 and button 2 on the numeric keyboard
several times. Each time these buttons are pressed the
sound of the solenoids should be audible as they click
open and closed. There should also be a distinct
difference in the sound of an opening solenoid and a
closing solenoid.
4.2.2 FAN CHECK:
Under normal operating conditions the fan(s) stop
rotating whenever the chiller door is opened. Fan
operation can only be verified with an open door in
the manual mode. The evaporator coil temperature
must also be below 30°F. Press button 3 followed by
button 4 and open the Quickchiller door. The fans
should be operating.
4.2.3 DEFROST HEATER CHECK:
Press button 5, 6, and button 7 once to detect the sound
of the defrost heater relays as they click ON. Press each
of these buttons once again to deactivate the defrost
heaters. This procedure will only detect the coil side of
each of the defrost heater relays but does not test the
operational condition of the defrost heaters nor test the
defrost heater fuses.
4.2.4 CONDENSING UNIT CHECK:
Press button 8 once to power both condensing units.
The "compressor" relays are solid-state and will not
produce an audible click, however; the compressors
should be audible. After a short period of time, the
compressors will automatically cycle OFF. Open the
solenoids (see 4.2.1) and the compressors will again
cycle ON. Close the solenoids.
4.2.5 COOLING TEST:
Open both solenoids (see 4.2.1) to activate the
compressors. When the compressors are activated,
press button 9. The display screen will indicate the
temperature of the air probe, the three food probes,
and the evaporator sensor. Allow the chiller to operate
in this mode for approximately 10 minutes. The air
temperature inside the food storage compartment
should begin to fall. This cooling condition will be
indicated on the display screen. If the food probe(s) do
not appear to be functioning properly, hold the tip of
the probe in your hand. The temperature display for
the hand-held probe should slowly increase. Any of
the probes which display an excessively high reading
(~300 to 400F —149 to 204C) will indicate a broken
connection or defective probe.
Do not allow the unit to operate
unattended in this Mode. This is an
uncontrolled Cool-down Mode and
will eventually cause excessive
build-up on the Evaporators.

4.0 — Diagnostic and Repair Procedure — CONTROL
4 . 3 CONDENSING UNITS
4 . 4 FA N S , H E AT E R S , S O L E N O I D S
The condensing units operate only when the system is
in a cooling mode and the food storage compartment
requires a decrease in temperature. If it appears the
condensing units are not functioning properly and the
General Diagnostic Procedure (4.2.4) on the preceding
page was unable to pinpoint the specific cause, the
following steps should be taken for further diagnosis.
If it appears the fans, heaters, or solenoids are not
functioning properly and the General Diagnostic
Procedure on the preceding page was unable to
pinpoint the specific cause leading to repair, follow
general directions prescribed for CONTROL CABLE
CONNECTIONS and CONDENSING UNIT FUSES
under the Condensing Unit heading on this page.
4.3.1 CONTROL CABLE CONNECTIONS:
Open the key lock on the alphanumeric keyboard
display enclosure. Inspect each circuit board
connection wire to be certain they are firmly
attached to the board. Pay particular attention to
the gray ribbon cable which originates through a
hole behind the circuit board. This cable should be
firmly attached to the black connector marked I/O
CONNECTOR. The additional gray ribbon cable
originating from the display should be firmly
attached to the black connector marked LCD DISPLAY.
The black connector marked PRINTER should only be
connected if the original factory order specified a
parallel printer port instead of the normal serial
printer port.
If it is determined the control cable connections are
secure, the problem may be related to a fuse, relay,
or device failure. At this point in the diagnosis
check the fuses.
4.3.2 CONDENSING UNIT FUSES:
Quickchiller condensing units, fans, heaters, and
solenoids are fused with 20mm fuses. Fuses are
located on the relay board which is mounted within
the electrical enclosure.

O F F B E F O R E S E RV I C I N G .
Disconnect main incoming A.C. power to the unit.
When all power to the system is OFF, gain access to
the electrical enclosure and remove the enclosure
cover. Before removing the fuses, measure the
voltage to make certain the power has been
completely disconnected. Each of the two
compressors have one fuse on L 1 and L 2 for a total
of four fuses. Test each fuse with an ohm-meter and
replace if necessary only with an identical fuse.
If the fuses do not require replacement or if the
compressors still do not function, call the factory
for assistance.

4.5 TROUBLE-SHOOTING GUIDELINES - CONTROL
PROBLEM
POSSIBLE CAUSE
Alphanumeric display is blank.
If power is connected to the unit and the
main circuit breaker is on, the display on
the control should be illuminated with a
green tinged background.
Control needs to be reset.
Unresponsive control.
If the control does not respond to operator key
presses or the screen on the display appears
frozen or sluggish.
Control needs to be reset.
Power failure threshold is set too low.
Control board is faulty.
Control not receiving correct power.
If the green light located on the middle bottom
edge of the circuit board is not illuminated.
Power Failure Threshold is set too low.
POSSIBLE SOLUTION
Press the yellow reset button located within the
locked keyboard door.
Control not receiving correct power.
Power failure threshold is set too low.
Control board is faulty.
Loose connection
Press the yellow reset button
1. Check connector J12 to the right of light along with
other three connecting wires for secure connections.
Control transformer incorrectly wired.
2. Check the AC voltage across the two end wires on
the connector with a voltmeter for a reading of 22 to
26 VAC. If there is no voltage or the voltage appears
low, check power connector on the relay board inside
electrical enclosure. Also check electronic filter,
transformer, and the two fuses at the bottom of relay
board. See installation instructions.
The control continuously measures a fraction of the
input power supplied to the unit. When this
fraction drops below 1.25 - 1.30 Vdc (converted to
DC) the control determines power is on the verge of
failing, saves all important data to battery memory
back-up, and prepares for a power failure.
Turn the trim-pot screw to adjust the amount of input
power used by the control to determine power failure.
1. Open the locked keyboard and locate the blue trimpot marked P12 just above the battery at the bottom
of the circuit board.
2. Place voltmeter red lead on the pin-connector
marked J22 (PFI) approximately 5" (127mm) under
the blue trim-pot.
3. Place voltmeter black lead on the metal nut in the
center of the board.
5. Adjust the trim-pot with a screwdriver until the
voltage of the DC-Voltmeter reads 1.70 to 1.85 volts.
Electronic control operates but fans, heaters,
and solenoids are not getting power.
No power to the relay board.
If all or a portion of the four green lights on
the relay board are not illuminated.
Check connections on both ends of the control cable.
Make certain there is power to the relay board.
Relay board may not be receiving full power.
One of the power supplies on the relay board may
not be functioning.
The power cable between the electronic control and
the relay board may not be properly connected
Check connections.
Check electronic filter.
Check the transformer. See installation
instructions.
The control cable between the relay board and the
electronic control may not be properly connected
Control transformer may be incorrectly wired.
Check the coil mounted fan terminator switch.
Excessive chill time.
— Fans not operating.
Check the fan fuses.
Check the connections between the fans and the
relay board.
Manual defrost operational — automatic
defrost does not function.
Verify set-up menu for automatic defrost is set at
YES. See Booklet No. 265, Cook/Chill Operation
and Procedures.
Manual and automatic defrost does
not function.
Check heater fuses.
Condensing units are not getting power or
do not function.
Check the control cable for good connections.
Check the large, transparent, coil-type relays on
the relay board and make certain each relay is
secure in the socket.
Check the over-pressure switch on the pressure
control. This switch opens when an overpressure occurs and must be manually reset.
Check the compressor SC15 and SC20 fuses
located in the fuse blocks on the left side-wall on
the inside of the electrical enclosure.
Check for a faulty solid-state compressor relay by
measuring the voltage across the output side of the
relay. If the voltage reads near zero, the relay is
closed. If the voltage reads very close to line voltage,
the relay is open. Open and close these relays using
the diagnostic program (4.2) with a voltmeter to
determine if the relay is opening and closing.
Display indicates Please Close Door with the
door fully closed.
Adjust the door switch.

5 . 3 EXTERIOR CLEANING
5 . 1 INTRODUCTION
To insure trouble free operation and the
highest level of sanitation control,
periodic cleaning and maintenance is
required. The maintenance system
should be aimed at maximizing the
efficient utilization of maintenance
personnel, minimizing down time, and
providing the orderly acquisition of spare
parts for support. If already established at the
location site, perform scheduled maintenance in
accordance with the standards in the Maintenance
Index Plan.
The Alto-Shaam® Quickchiller should be cleaned and
sanitized a minimum of once a week. Good equipment that is kept clean works better and lasts longer.
Protect your investment.
Always follow appropriate state or local health
(hygiene) regulations regarding all applicable
cleaning and sanitation requirements for equipment.
5.2 INTERIOR CLEANING

damp cloth and any good alkaline or
alkaline chlorinated based commercial
detergent or grease solvent at the
recommended strength. Use a plastic
scouring pad for difficult areas. Avoid the
use of abrasive cleaning compounds,
chloride based cleaners, or cleaners
containing quaternary salts.
Be sure to clean the ceiling, foor, walls and fan
panel. Clean the vinyl gaskets and the interior
door panel. Make certain to clean under the
gaskets to remove any mildew accumulation or
food residue.
3. Rinse everything with clean water and cloth to
remove all residue. Allow cabinet interior to air dry
with the door open.
CAUTION
