Question about Beverage-Air BM23
Had no problems until i adjusted the temperature to ferment a lager beer at 45 degrees. adjusted to near 50 degrees for a few weeks and now the unit will not cool less than 50. the coils were really dirty so i cleaned them and still no change. if i turn the thermostat to off the compressor turns off. the fan works fine. its an older unit, the date on the compressor is 1993. i dont usually mess with the thermostat and i wonder if this is the problem or if i need to have the freon recharged. any help would be great because there's beer at stake here. many thanks.
Seems like the T-stat may have a dead spot on it since it started when you changed the settings. It is possible to trick (short) the t-stat to cause it to cool FOREVER, that would check your refrigerant charge is good. Would lean more toward t-stat problem first.

Check the seal on door, make sure its sealing properly, if yes check coils internal & external, make sure they're clean, check freon level as a last result

You'll need to check the back-pressure on the low-side of the system, you have a faulty compressor. If there is a condenser fan motor make sure it is running when the compressor is on.
