Cooler is freezing my Beer!!

I am all about ice cold beer, but not frozen beer. Especially when we are selling it. It can ruin my beer if it freezes and then thaws. The thermostat is turned all the way to the lowest setting. Everything in the cooler freezes. The coil has also been cleaned. What now? What could it be?

Re: Cooler is freezing my Beer!!

Could be the thermostat isn't working and the unit is just running and running all the time. To me that seems the most simple explanation right now. Can you check the temp inside when on the lowest setting for a day, then turn it up to the highest for a day and see if there is a huge difference in temps? Does the compressor motor ever turn off or does it run continuously? Suspect that t-stat...

The temp guage does not work and when the keg cooler is plugged in it gets down to 20 degrees and freezes the beer. Can this be fixed?

This solution probably costs more than you care to spend on the problem, but you can buy an external temp controller like this one:
You run the probe into the fridge and plug the fridge into the controller. Then the controller will only turn on the fridge if it gets warmer than the temperature you specify.
You might be able to find it cheaper on ebay, too. I'm using this on a kegerator and can keep my beer at a consistent temp.

True cooler frezzing kegs of beer

If I am not mistaken, the True line-up of coolers have a temp control on them that is labeled 0-9.

This particular type of temp control is a coil temp control. I measures the temperature of the coil rather than air temperature.

Always set the control to the warmest setting and move it colder by one number at a time until your product reaches and holds designed temp. Do not go by cooler air temperature as there will be a great swing in temp especially if the doors are used frequently. Always temp the product. In the case of beer, your ideal holding temp is between 35-38°.

If you set the temp control to the warmest setting and the cooler is still freezing product, you will need to have the cooler serviced be a refrigeration tech. It will most likely be a bad control but there may be underlying problems.

I own a true 2 keg beer cooler and it has recenty been not able to turn off the cooler and freezes the beer. is this a problem with the thermostat or something else?

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.

Beer freezes

The proper temperature should be between 35 and 42 degrees. Here are some things to try:

  • If your refrigerator temperature is closer to 35 degrees, try turning the temperature up slightly.

  • If the temperature is too low and you can't make it warmer by adjusting the thermostat, you probably have a defective thermostat.

I have a Sanyo kegerator that will not cool enough. I have set the thermostat as cold as it will go and it will only go down to about 42 degrees. What can I look for?

Drop thae stat it's a screw on the left side that controls temp.Don't rush this you don't wnt to freeze your beer. 1,5 turns to the left will take you down to ice cold beer.

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!

Used as beer fridge but contents freezing

The defrost timer in the unit is probably bad take a look at it there should be a timer with a slot in it around the thermostat that you can turn with a common screwdriver the timer should click and go into defrost mode and the unit should shut off, if the unit shuts off and it still doesn't defrost you either have a thermal cut-out that is bad in the freezer next to the heater element or the heater element itself is bad. Let us know :-)
