Customer Reviews

55" Solid Door Reach-In Refrigerator is rated 4.28 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Our T-49 brings everything you would expect of a $2K-$3K refrigerator. I especially like the fact that True is a great old American manufacturer still making great products with durability. Our unit was expertly crated, and arrived via common carrier. It was easy to unpack and easy to roll once we got the casters on. The casters are not made by True, and one immediately broke. We are replacing the casters with legs, as it wiggles around too easily on wheels anyway, brake or no brake. A wire had rattled lose in shipping, but once fixed by a local True tech, it fired right up and works great!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I am the owner of a Pre-School with several locations I researched many commercial kitchen products and found the True line to include the most necessary features as standard. For the money the T-49 is the best product. The appearance displays the status of quality and superiority that my business brings forward. Dollar for Dollar it’s the best refrigerator out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's a good unit and True's services is tops. The unit was great for about 4 days until it got up to 65 degrees and stayed there. But when I was in a panic the next morning and called True's service number I actually spoke with a human who did great and was able to calm me down and give me tips on how to best preserve the product in the unit. The repair guy came out an hour later and had it working great in 10 minutes. It was a simple relay that had malfunctioned. It's a good unit and True's services is tops.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The product will serve as a archival storage facility for our laboratory. It has the space will need for the intended use. Having the six shelves will come in very handy for us. It will hold the temperature range that we need to meet. It will serve as a great resource for the laboratory. We like it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We are a clinical laboratory and temperatures have to be very stable. With the T-49 we get that! It looks fantastastic. The stainless steel doors are easy to clean. The refrigerator maintains temperature extremely well and the construction is tough. Easy to reach in and pull reagents and supplies needed

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems to be a pretty good product. We ordered two units and one had some minor damage upon arrival. However the damage was a minor dent in the back of one of the units and seems to be working fine. They have been in use for a few weeks now and all is well, so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value. Ease in operation and maintenance. Perfect fit for our needs. We shopped around and decided that this was the best for the money. The fridge is durable and easy to clean. The shelves are strong and adjustable. The built in temp. Gauge is useful.

How do you adjust the temperature dial on a true beverage refrigerator ?

The cold control for the TRUE 55" Solid Door Reach-In Refrigerator is mounted on the evaporator cover up at the top of the case inside. Usually a black knob with setting numbers. The higher the number the colder the temp.
