Dixell Controller Factory Reset Instructions

From refrigerators to freezers, a wide variety of commercial cooling equipment is equipped with Dixell controllers. Many authorized technicians are called to install and troubleshoot the component, and sometimes, a reset is required. To help with these procedures, we've outlined Dixell controller factory reset instructions for temperature settings and alarms on popular models.

Temperature Reset

Before you conduct a temperature reset, verify the minimum and maximum temperatures recorded on the controller. The following instructions are for, but not limited to, XR35CX, XR60CX and XW220L models.

Checking MIN Temperature

  1. Press and release the DOWN arrow.
  2. The “Lo” message will display on the screen followed by the recorded minimum temperature.
  3. Return to the normal display by pressing the DOWN arrow key again or waiting five seconds.

Checking MAX Temperature

  1. Press and release the UP arrow.
  2. The “Hi” message will display on the screen followed by the recorded maximum temperature.
  3. Return to the normal display by pressing the UP arrow key again or by waiting five seconds.

Resetting the Temperatures

  1. With either the maximum or minimum temperature displayed, press and hold the SET button for more than three seconds. The “rSt” message will display on the screen.
  2. The controller confirms the reset by having the “rSt” blink. After this, the normal temperature will display on the screen.

The iCHILL IC100CX and IC200CX let you reset the alarm and alarm logs. Below are the procedures for both.

  5. Exit the function menu by pushing and releasing the M button or wait for it to timeout. The menu icon will disappear.

Resetting the Alarm Log

  1. Go to the function menu.
