I'm thinking some thing got sucked up and is restricting the water flow.

The answer to the problem was, it needed to be recharged. There is likely a small leak somewhere that I will try to resolve, but for now the recharge gave the unit a whole new life. With in 5 minutes of charging the plate was already freezing on the outside and with-in 30 minutes it was fully frozen...ya hooooooo!

Actually the repair man, Woody Sherrod of Sherrod Marine out of Baltimore, 410-752-2870, said the descaling probably helped the system as well.

Thanks all for the input.

Cheers,
Shawn

Is there a ight tube in the system? With the compressor running you should first see a stream of bubbles that will slowly clear to only a stream of a few bubbles. If you see this there is adequate charge. I agree that your problem is most likely a lack of coolant flow but in most installations the coolant water on engine driven compressors comes from your engine coolant water circulation and not from a separate water pump. If your engine is pumping adequate water out the exhaust, your heat exchanger for the fridge coil should be also. Also check the pipe coming out of the compressor. It should be cold and get colder as the compressor runs. If it doesn't, and adequate water circulation around the heat exchanger coil is present , and the compressor is actually turning- then the compressor or charge is bad.
