If the cooler has power, the condesor fan (bottom) and evaporator fan (top) are spinning put your hand on the compressor. Do you feel a vibration? if so, you probably have a refrigerant leak. If not (if its clicking or nothing at all) its a compressor issue.

    I have a true upright commercial display refrigerator.I think the tempature control is faulty.It freezez everything,I use it for beer and wine.I have cleaned the condensor and still no luck.No matter what...

    it is just a temp control, look real good at the control and see if you can see any holes in it that might have a small screw that can be turned. Maybe an in and out, you may be able to adjust it this way. let me know.

    Missing plexi glass sign for my unit

    These are referred to as 'signfaces'. I have one just laying around that says 'cold drinks'. I would suggest measuring it out and buying a piece of plexiglass from home depot, then going to kinkos and having them print out a similar size sticker to attach to it.

    We have a GDM-26 commerical coke machine. Only

    If any of your drinks are freezing you need to adjust your temp setting. The suggested setting is 5. changing the temp setting basically tells the refrigerator to stop cooling when the temp hits a low degree, and to start cooling when it hits a high degree. This keeps your drinks not to hot, not too cold, but just right. If this doesn't work I would change the cold control altogether, it might've went bad. If you have a few minutes, locate the condensor fan (bottom) and make sure it is periodically turning on and off like it should.

    turn thermostat all the way to the left to turn it off. restore power and see if it stays on and inside fan is running. Then turn thermostat to rite to turn on compressor. If the power trips when turning thermostat back on, the compressor may be bad. :(
