Beverage-Air Kegerator Not Staying Cold

I have an older Beverage-Air single keg kegerator that works great without a keg inside, but once I place a keg inside, the temperature rises to about 50 degrees. Everything seems to be running right and you can hear the compressor turning on and off. The kegerator is in my garage where the temperature at this time of year is between 40 and 50 degrees.

It can take a very long time to get a keg of beer down in temperature. The heat transfer from a keg is slow due to the lack of air circulation inside the keg. You should also check your condenser coils, make sure they are clean. Door gasket should also be in good repair. Hope this helps.

The internal temp will get down to 40 degrees but the fans won't shut off. We had to move it and when it defrosted, a lot of ice fell off the coils.

Have not used the kegerator for several years. Plugged it in and it immediately started getting cold. Then I unplugged it to move it and when I plugged it back in it does not get cold.


Check to see if any of the compressor electrical items came loose when moving.
I had this happen to a customer and he called someone else in who tried to sell him a new compressor.

I have a beverage air kegerator that seems to work fine, but the evaporator fan runs constantly. Is it supposed to run constantly, or is it supposed to cycle on and off with the compressor, etc.?


Most evaporator fans run all the time. This is mainly to use the air flow to assist in melting off any frost build up during the compressor off cycle. If that fan shut off with the compressor the coil will have a tendency to freeze up. :)

I have an older beer cooler. the fan costantly runs but the refrigeration part of the beer cooler doesn't keep the keg cold? ? ? It's refrigerate is r12 cooled. Do you think I could just re charge the...


You would need to be a certified refrigeration technician to even buy R-12, since it is a CRC refrigerant. The kegerator probably doesn't have service ports so you would either have to braze a low-side port in or use a piercing valve, and fix wherever the refrigerant leaked out from. Basically, by the time you pay a refrigeration tech to do all this, it isn't worth it and you would be better off buying a new one
