Question about True GDM-7 Beverage Cooler
Hey everyone! I have a True Beverage Cooler, Model # TBB2G and it isn't getting very cold. The temperature dial is all the way up to one below the coldest setting. We cleaned off the buildup of dust off the compressor already. Thanks!

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...

Jeremy, after the line and new filter drier is put in the high pressure side and silver soldered make sure the unit is placed in absolute vacuum for 30 to 60 minutes. It's critical that all air and moisture is remove and the charge applied on low side with out a single air bubble put back in. You may need some on hands help on this solution to get the cooler working properly, Thanks Sea Breeze

i got it fixed. you have to know a little about wiring to make this happen, but not impossible. took cold control off old refrigerator, and wired it into compressor behind refrigerator. the cold control is no more than a thermostat that acts as an on/off switch, so the hot wire needs to be removed off the compressor and the hot lead on the cold control needs to be wired to constant voltage and the other wire on the cold control plugged into compressor where original hot wire was disconnected. you will have to drill a little hole through refrigerator somewhere to run thermostat wire off cold control into refrigerator. you now control the internal temp by the external cold control switch. if you hook it up this way you will only be bypassing the original cold control on the whirlpool, but will still have your digital readout of internal temp. mine now reads 32 deg. and if the beer is in the back of refrigerator it will have ice in it, just the way i like it.

The unit has a temperature swing adjustment screw located behind the thermostat plate.If you remove the knob and the face plate you will see it,It can be adjusted there.It may also be the thermostat bulb is going bad or touching something and giving a false signal to the compressor.

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.
