FWE MOBILE AIR SCREEN REFRIGERATOR
PERFORMANCE, INTENDED USE & CABINET FEATURES
PERFORMANCE OVERVIEW:
The Air Screen Refrigerator is specifically designed to hold 45°F (7.2°C) temperature or below for a
minimum of 45 minutes and a maximum of 90 minutes, dependent upon application and operating conditions.
Examples that may alter performance include room temp, humidity, surrounding air exchanges, voltage,
internal temperature of food product placed into the cabinet, profile of food product, and food product density.
When the door of the unit is closed, it operates as a force air refrigerator with a highly efficient refrigeration
system that provides faster “pull down” and “recovery” times than standard refrigerators. When the door is
opened, a series of blower fans create a “wall” of air and areas of pressure, localizing a unique pattern of air
from both the left and right side walls, as well as from the top. This movement across the cabinet opening helps
to keep the cold air in and the warm air out of the food zone and is specifically designed to help maintain and
prolong the interior cabinet temperature and, thus, help maintain internal food product temperatures for
extended periods of time with the door open, contributing to safer product storage during service hours.
This Air Screen seals itself around objects and is ideal for hospital and nursing home tray line / assembly line
kitchen operations, flight kitchens, cafeterias, fast food and QSR applications. For best results, the air curtain
was designed for “low profile” food products typical of these applications.
TYPICAL OPERATING PARAMETERS:
The “screen” of air is capable of maintaining 45°F (7.2°C) temperature or below for a minimum of 45 minutes
and a maximum of 90 minutes based at 75°F / 45% RH / 120V 20 amp dedicated circuit. A “typical”
operational environment can expect a result of a 60 minute range. HOWEVER, actual time your unit will run
in this temperature zone depends on many factors, such as:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Room ambient temperature
Humidity levels
Air disruption (such as a hood, vent, or air return)
Amount of time unit was allowed to precondition the food(s)
Food temperatures when placed into the unit
Type of food packaging and profile of foods
Regularly maintained and CLEANED condensing unit
It should also be noted that there is a lag time between the “ambient air” temperature in the cabinet and
that of the actual product temperature. The food temperature differential can be 10°F to 25°F (-12°C to -4°C)
cooler than the temperature indicated by the temperature display. FWE Air Screen are supplied with a
electronic controller, which is very accurate and intuitive.
FULL SWING DOOR WITH MAGNETIC HOLD OPEN CATCH:
Door opens to lay flat against cabinet and is secured by a magnetic door
edge “catch”. In addition, when the door is closed, it also is secured
magnetically, thus removing the need of a cumbersome door latch.
TRAY SLIDES: Ten (10) pairs of removable stainless steel tray slides
are provided standard at 4-1/2'' spacing. Each tray slide can
accommodate one (1) 18'' x 26'' pan / tray.
SIDE GRIPS & REAR HANDLE: For easy mobility and maneuvering
stainless steel recessed hand grips are provided on the left and right
sides, in addition to a 1'' welded tubular push/pull handle is attached
to the rear of the cabinet. A full wrap-around perimeter bumper protects
the unit.
CASTERS: 6'' diameter polyurethane casters are supplied standard for
Air Screen models. They are attached to 10-gauge stainless steel corner
plate reinforcements/stress pads. These are shipped already installed
on the unit for immediate use.

allow at glance recognition of temperature scale. Repeat this step to change temperature scale again.
“de9F” indicates your R-AS-10 unit will display temperature in Fahrenheit.
“de9C” indicates your R-AS-10 unit will display temperature in Celsius.
(B) POWER INDICATOR “ON” LIGHT: Your R-AS-10 unit is equipped with an on indicator light. When illuminated the on light indicates
Power is ON.
(C) CYCLING INDICATOR LIGHT: Your R-AS-10 unit is equipped with a cooling system cycle indicator light. When cycle light is “ON”, this indicates your R-AS-10 unit is cooling down to the desired temperature. When the R-AS-10 refrigeration compressor is running the cycle light will
come “ON” until your R-AS-10 has reached the desired temperature, and go “OFF” when your R-AS-10 has reached desired temperature.
(D) TEMPERATURE DISPLAY: Your R-AS-10 unit allows you to select the temperature display in two modes, Actual temperature or Set Point
temperature. Set Point temperature is the FWE factory default. In circumstances where displaying the Actual temperature is desired the FWE
R-AS-10 AIR SCREEN allows you to choose this function. Actual temperature will display internal cabinet temperature acting as an internal
thermometer. To switch between Set-Point and Actual temperature display press and hold the temperature recall button. Display will flash “S” or “A”
then display “SET” for Set-Point or “ACT” for Actual. When display is “SET” or “ACT” release the temperature recall button, to accept the new setting
press and release the temperature recall button.
(E) TEMPERATURE SETTING: Your R-AS-10 units operating temperature is PRE-SET at 34°F (1.1°C) with an operating temperature range of
33°F to 38°F ( 0.56°C to 3.33°C). To change temperature press the up or down arrow temperature setting buttons.
(F) TEMP RECALL: Your R-AS-10 unit is equipped with an easy access temp recall button. The temp recall button has two uses.
First is to momentarily display set-point or actual temperature. When your R-AS-10 unit is set to display Set-Point temperature press and release
the temp recall button to see actual temperature, display will show actual temperature for 3 seconds then revert back to Set-Point display. When
your R-AS-10 unit is set to display actual temperature press and release the temp recall button to see set-point temperature, display will show
set-point temperature for 3 seconds then revert back to actual temperature display. Second, The temp recall button is used to change temperature
display between Set-Point and Actual temperature. Item (D) above describes how to change the display.
(G) DEFROSTING THE EVAPORATOR COIL: Your FWE R-AS-10 AIR SCREEN unit offers you four defrost options.
First is a smart auto defrosting option. Smart defrost is the factory default option and requires you to do nothing, the defrost cycle is automatic.
Sensors on the evaporator coil read coil temperature and decide how long and how often your R-AS-10 unit requires defrosting.
Depending on usage and environment your R-AS-10 unit will defrost in intervals of 4, 6, 8 and 10 hours.
Second defrost option is a user selected defrost time interval. This will allow you to select defrost time intervals that work best for your operation.
You can select R-AS-10 unit defrost time intervals from every 4 hours to every 12 hours in one hour increments. To activate and set your custom
defrost option press and hold the manual defrost, up arrow and down arrow buttons for ten seconds. The controller will beep and display a flashing
4HR, use the up and down arrow button to set your desired defrost interval time. When desired defrost interval time is reached press the temp
recall button to accept your defrost time option. To unselect your timed defrost option repeat same steps and use the up or down arrow buttons until
display shows “OFF”, press the temp recall button to accept. This will revert back to the worry free auto smart defrost option. Important note: If you
do select to use the timed interval defrost option FWE recommends setting the defrost interval at every 8 hours.
Third defrost option is a manual forced defrost. This is simply pressing the manual defrost button at any time you need to defrost the R-AS-10
evaporator coil. Pressing the manual defrost button will start a defrost cycle at any time regardless of what defrost option is selected. The light
above the manual defrost will illuminate to let you know the unit is in defrost. The manual defrost button has a second function, when your
R-AS-10 unit is in a defrost cycle you can terminate the defrost by pressing the manual defrost button, allow two minutes for cooling cycle to start.
Fourth defrost option is a hard defrost. This option will start a prolonged defrost cycle and should only be used in case of extreme evaporator ice
build up. You should only use the hard defrost option when instructed to do so by a member of FWE’s customer service staff.
FWE customer service 815-459-7500.
During a defrost cycle the indicator light located above the manual defrost button will illuminate. The cooling system condenser/compressor and
fans are momentarily disabled. Defrost feature allows proper defrosting of accumulated ice build up on the evaporator coil. The defrost cycle can be
cancelled by pressing the manual defrost button. If a defrost cycle is cancelled in this manor there is a ONE minute wait period before the cooling
system starts. The controller will display a 60 second countdown indicating the one minute wait period.
During a defrost cycle the condensation from the evaporator coil will flow from the top of the unit down a drain line to the condensate vapor pan.
The condensate vapor pan will automatically evaporate all defrost condensation. There is no need to empty a defrost water pan. Vapor can
sometimes be visible and should be considered a normal operating condition. Proper attention should be given to defrost your R-AS-10.
Every “Event” or time the unit is used with door open, the coil may build up ice reducing the effectiveness and overall operation of your R-AS-10.

FWE MOBILE REFRIGERATED AIR SCREEN
GENERAL OPERATION
TRANSPORTING
WARNING: Do not attempt to move the Air Screen Refrigerator until the unit is turned off, the power cord is
unplugged and out-of-the-way, or secured around rear handle.
A. Door must be securely shut and all caster locks released.
B. Maneuver unit by grasping the side handles or rear handle. CAUTION: The unit is designed for internal use
and not designed for outdoor all-terrain transport. Though the compressor has been located at the bottom of
the unit, lowering the center-of-gravity, the distribution of weight of the unit and food product makes the unit
top heavy. Be cautious when approaching uneven flooring (such as door sills, drains, thresholds, etc).
OPEN DOOR OPERATION
1. Set Temp. Pre-chill empty cabinet to minimum of 34°F to 36°F (1°C to 2.2°C) with door closed
minimum of one (1) hour.
2. Load cabinet from bottom to top with PRE-CHILLED FOOD AT 40°F (4.4°C) or colder.
Push trays to rear of wall.
FULL SWING DOOR WITH MAGNETIC HOLD OPEN CATCH:
Door opens to lay flat against cabinet and is secured by a magnetic door edge.
Note: Prior to “operating with door open”, food product should be prechilled to an
internal food temperature of 36°F (2.2°C) or below.
3. After loading, close cabinet door and allow inside temperature to re-stabilize to designated
set temperature (or to desired internal temperature of food product).
4. Unload cabinet from top to bottom. Empty trays can be removed or left in the unit after unloading.
Trays will not appreciably effect the overall performance of the unit, however, keeping the 10 tray slides
racked in the cabinet after trays have been emptied of food product may result in slightly better performance.
5. This unit is equipped with an automatic condensate evaporator. To prevent water spills, leave unit plugged
in with door closed after use. A recommendation would be to defrost after use as well, to free coil from
ice build up formed during use.
6. Your R-AS-10 is equipped with a smart controller. During open door operation your R-AS-10 unit knows the
door is open. When operating your R-AS-10 with door open the display will show “OPEn” and an internal
count down timer will start. Your R-AS-10 unit will allow open door operation for a maximum of 90 minutes.
During the 90-minute open door operation your R-AS-10 will not go into an auto or timed interval defrost
cycle. During open door operation the cooling system will remain on. This ensures you will receive optimum
open door performance. If door is open longer than 90 minutes an open door alarm will be activated.
Display will flash “OPEn” and beep three times every ten seconds. To terminate the open door
alarm, the door must be closed and remain closed for five minutes. If door open alarm is activated,
unit will activate a hard defrost cycle five minutes after door is closed. Door must remain closed until
defrost cycle is complete, approximately 30 minutes.

GENERAL CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
WARNING: RISK OF ELECTRICAL SHOCK. DISCONNECT ELECTRICAL POWER SUPPLY
BEFORE CLEANING ANY PARTS OF THE UNIT OR PRIOR TO ANY SERVICE.
CLEANING THE CONDENSER:
The most important thing you can do to insure a long, reliable service life for your FWE Air Screen
Refrigerator is to regularly clean the condenser (compressor) coil. The condensing unit requires regularly
scheduled cleaning to keep the finned condenser clean of lint and dust accumulation. Keeping the condenser
clean allows the cabinet to operate efficiently, use less energy, and achieve top performance values.
To clean the condenser, first disconnect electrical power to the cabinet and remove the front and/or rear
louver assembly. To remove the front louver assembly simply pull the assembly down and out, the louver
assembly is held in place with magnets. To remove the rear louver assembly, remove all screws located
on the louver assembly. Once the screws are removed the louver assembly can be removed.
Removing front louver assembly allows full access to the front facing condenser.
Vacuum any dirt, lint, or dust from the finned condenser coil, the compressor and other cooling system parts.
If significant dirt is clogging the condenser fins*, use soft brush or compressed air to blow this clear.
*NOTE: Care should be taken not to bend any of the condenser fins,
as this will reduce performance and compressor life.
Replace louver assembly and screws, on rear louver assembly, which hold it in place.
GENERAL CLEANING GUIDE OF STAINLESS STEEL:
Stainless steel should be cleaned with warm water, mild soap and a soft cloth. Apply with a dampened cloth
and wipe in the direction of the metal grain. A stainless steel polish may be used to renew and protect finish.
• Do not use gritty or abrasive cleaners as they may tend to mar and scratch the surface.
• Do NOT use cleansers containing chlorine, this may promote corrosion of the stainless steel.
• Check the ingredients of cleaning solutions or disinfectants used as they may contain chlorinated solvents.
Always read the label of the cleaning solutions. Check for warnings about use on stainless steel products.
Repeated use of chlorinated solvents may cause a chemical reaction with the stainless steel, which will
damage the surface and cause rusting.
Care should also be taken to avoid splashing the unit with water containing chlorinated cleansers, when
mopping the floor around the unit.
For stubborn odor spills, use baking soda and water (mixed to a 1 TBSP baking soda to 1 pint water ratio),
or a paint thinner may be used. Unit must be then cleaned with warm water to remove any baking soda or
thinner cleaner residue.
CLEANING THE INTERIOR:
For stubborn stains, the use of baking soda is recommended. Use on breaker strips as well as door gaskets.
• For routine cleaning, it is NOT necessary to remove the interior air flow tunnels (left and right sides).
These panels are critical to the performance of the Air Curtain.
• Door gasket is removable for cleaning when necessary.
AIR FLOW TUNNELS: Should the situation arise where the air flow tunnels needed to be removed
(not required for routine cleaning) to clean a major spill that has flowed behind the air flow vents,

SERVICE INFORMATION
BEFORE CALLING FOR SERVICE, PLEASE CHECK THE FOLLOWING:
If the unit is NOT COOLING down to the proper temperature, check these two common causes:
1. The evaporator coil needs defrosting. Press the “ON DEMAND DEFROST” button on the control
panel. Unit will defrost in approximately 20 minutes. Light above defrost button will illuminate when in
defrost. The unit will automatically return to normal operation after a defrost cycle, having a transition
time of two (2) minutes. Certain conditions may require 3 repeated sequential defrosts.
A “HARD DEFROST”: Consult FWE Customer Service for HARD DEFROST procedures.
2. Dirt, lint, and/or dust are on the condenser (compressor) coil. To clean the condenser, first
disconnect electrical power to the cabinet and remove the screws on the front and/or rear louver
assembly. Removed louvered panel allowing full access to the front facing condenser. Vacuum any
dirt, lint, and/or dust from the finned condenser coil, the compressor and other cooling system parts.
If significant dirt is clogging the condenser fins, use brush or compressed air to blow this clear.
NOTE: Care should be taken not to bend any of the condenser fins, as this will reduce
performance and compressor life. Replace louver assembly and screws which hold it in place.
If the unit is NOT WORKING at all, please check the following:
Is the electrical cord plugged in?
Is the circuit breaker on and fuse OK?
Is the “ON” indicator light illuminated? Press POWER On/Off button to illuminate.
If after checking the above items and the unit is still not operating properly, please contact
FWE for an authorized service agent.
