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.
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.
Chill processing stops all cooking activity. This
enables the operator to accelerate additional
preparation sequences. Chilling also enhances the
freshly prepared characteristics of foods.

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.
Allow sufficient front clearance for serviceability
and for easy maneuvering of food trolleys in and
out of the cabinet.
Satisfactory refrigerating capacity is possible with
condenser entering air temperatures below 115°F.
1.6.2. INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS: Install the
Quickchiller on smooth and level floor surface.
Use the adjustable cabinet legs to level the unit.
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.
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.
After leveling the cabinet, check the height
relationship of the roll-in cart to the cabinet.
Adjust Quickchiller height as needed.

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

degrees of the hold set-point.
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 5:
Once the system has run through prolonged or
consecutive quick chill cycles, it may be
advisable to place it through a manual defrost.
Stage 2:
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.
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.

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.
RECOMMENDED:
Star Micronics PN# DP-8340 FM
Alto-Shaam Serial Printer & Cable Package PN#14218
PARALLEL PRINTER:
Any EPSON, IBM PRO-PRINTER or compatible is acceptable.
The internal buffer should be at least 1K byte. Most of the newer
printers have at least this amount or more. A standard printer
cable is required. It is not necessary to use a printer with 24 pins
or special graphic capabilities. Alto-Shaam Parallel Printer Cable
(part number 14709) is recommended to connect parallel printer
to Quickchiller control .
DIP SWITCH:
The dip-switch is located on the CPU board. It is read by the
software each time the main menu is entered. Changing the
settings while at the main menu will not effect a change until the
main menu is exited and reentered.
When taking advantage of the
special feature program options, we
strongly recommend individuals

HOSE INSPECTION AND CLEANING
3.6 MONTHLY COMPRESSOR AND
CONDENSER MAINTENANCE
1. Every 4-6 months, the evaporator coil and
condensate drain hose should be inspected for
blockage due to spilled food and sauces which
can accumulate about the base of the coil and
clog the entrance to the drain hose.
Keep the condenser coils free of dust and
debris to insure proper air circulation and
cooling of the refrigeration system.
1. Turn power supply to the cabinet OFF by
switching the circuit breaker switch on the
main breaker panel to the OFF position.
Remove the front grille.
2. With the Slide-In-Pan-Rack and Rack Track
removed, remove the two screws at the bottom
sides of the storage compartment. Remove the
cover to expose the evaporator coil. Inspect the
base of the coil for food spillage, condensate
pooling and evaporator coil ice. If this area is
free of contaminants, cleaning is not required.
If cleaning is required, proceed with step 3.
2. Using a vacuum or small hand broom, brush
the condenser coils in a vertical motion to
remove any accumulated dust or debris.
3. Replace air grill and return main circuit breaker
switch to the ON position.
3. To clean the base of the coil and drain hose,
first remove larger food particles by hand.

5.0 — Diagnostic and Repair Procedure
5.1
INTRODUCTION
5.2.1 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.
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.
5.2.2 FAN CHECK:
5.2 CONTROL DIAGNOSIS
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.
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.
PASSWORD ENTRY SCREEN
5.2.3 DEFROST HEATER CHECK:
Q-CHILLER CONFIGURE
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.
P A S S W O R D : ________________
When the Password Entry screen is in view, enter
the password code on the alphanumeric
keyboard.
5.2.4 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.
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.
5.2.5 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.
A correctly entered password will result in a
diagnostic screen.

5.0 — Diagnostic and Repair Procedure
5.3 CONDENSING UNITS
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.
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.
5.3.1 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 the fuses do not require replacement or if
the compressors still do not function, call the
factory for assistance.
5.4 FANS, HEATERS, SOLENOIDS
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.
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.
5.3.2 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.

6.0 — CONTROL — Troubleshooting
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.
Press the yellow reset button
1. Check connector J12 to the right of light along with
other three connecting wires for secure connections.
Loose connection
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.
Check connections on both ends of the control cable.
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.
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.
Verify set-up menu for automatic defrost is set at
YES. See Booklet No. 265, Cook/Chill Operation
and Procedures.
Manual defrost operational — automatic
defrost does not function.
Check heater fuses.
Manual and automatic defrost does not function.
Check the large, transparent, coil-type relays on
the relay board and make certain each relay is
secure in the socket.
Check the control cable for good connections.
Condensing units are not getting power or
do not function.
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.
Adjust the door switch.
Display indicates Please Close Door with the
door fully closed.
Make certain the food probes are being inserted into
the food BEFORE starting the auto-chill cycle.
Unit will hold at refrigeration temperature but will
not Auto-Chill.
