Could be many things... A bad thermostat, bad compressor, bad compressor start relay, refrigerant leak, moisture in the system, or even a blocked capillary tube. You would need a lot more information... mostly only the kind a technician can get by getting his hands on it. Sorry.
This is probably the thermostat stuck closed and bad. Turn the tstat all the way to left or counter clock wise. The compressor should turn off.If the compressor continues to run the tstat is stuck and bad. A good replacement tstat would be Ranco # A12-1560.
Way too many thing's can cause such problem's. Most important with bottle coolers are clean condensor, good condensor ventilation, do not overstock and block evaporator circulation. Then you get to component failures, failed thermostat or improperly positioned sensing element, failed evaporator fan, icing of the evaporator section from fan or gas charge problems, contamination in gas curcuit causing cap tube blockage, compressor overheat shut downs from real or defective component issue's. Trouble-shooting is a plan for cause elimination, start with the simple end and move out from there?
I go to Home Depot to get their aluminum 'L' bracket (3 ft or 4 ft lengths, etc by 3/8th or 1/2 inch), usually by their screw and nail aisle. Depending on whether the rail you're fixing is on the box's outside frame edge or an separating inner edge, you'll need to turn the 'L' either up or down so that the screws to attach it have something to bite into. I also add a line of Gorilla glue to the aluminum and wet the edge it need to attach to for extra strength.
First, dont overstock your beer, good circulation is key. Make sure your condenser coils are clean. Find a happy setting with the help of a thermometer to cool between 35 - 42 degrees. To defrost I put big zipl-loc bags of ice on top of beer. Turn temperature all the way up (the compressor will cut off but the fan will keep running) for a few hours. When the ice is thick i put HOT water in a squirt bottle and spray sections in the ice. Play around with that and see if it works. Hopefully you don't have a bad condenser. Good luck!
