    My 2 cents.
    Look at the options, it should say GLYCOL OPERATION, if not the unit is running as normal water chiller, if you read the manual you will see that water and glycol operation having a different LP cutting points and also different antifreeze points.

    It is chilling water not glycol. We have had problems with this machine losing its refrigerant charge. Would low charge cause this?

    Low charge can cause this.
    Chilled water flow can cause this as well.
    Bad Xducer...
    There's a lot of things that can cause this. Really need to go through and troubleshoot the entire circuit.
