"True" beer cooler isn't getting cold

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!

    Give me more info. Does the compressor run all the time? How cold does the box get? Is condenser coil hot at top section and warm near bottom?

SOURCE: 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...

SOURCE: beverage cooler not cooling enought

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

SOURCE: Whirlpool Beverage Center (WBC127BLS) - Won't cool enough

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.

SOURCE: TRUE COOLER COMPRESSOR CYCLES ON 45 SECONDS AND OFF FOR 2 MIN.

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.

Remove the doors, then the evaporator cover. Just be careful.

SOURCE: I own a true 2 keg beer cooler and it has recenty

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.

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 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

Beverage-Air Kegerator Not Staying Cold


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.

Cooler wont cool below 48 degrees.


Keep a thermometer handy. (adjust temperature control knob accordingly)
Periodically monitor temperatures inside your cooler. (adjust as necessary)
Keep the refrigerator door closed as much as possible to avoid temperature fluctuations

The temperature of the refrigerator compartment is
controlled by adjusting/setting the thermostat control
knob, located on the ceiling of the refrigerator
cabinet.
To start the refrigerator, and achieve maximum
cooling quickly;
• Turn the temperature control knob (using a coin
or screwdriver) clockwise to the furthest
(maximum) setting on the darker blue section of
the graduated control dial.
• Allow the refrigerator to run at this setting for 3~4
hours.
• When maximum cooling is achieved, turn back
the temperature control knob setting to the 2:00
o'clock position on the graduated blue control
dial.
• Correct cooling temperature is a key factor to
consider in storing and dispensing draught beer.
• Optimum temperature for serving draught beer is
between 34ºF ~ 38ºF.(1ºC ~ 3ºC)
• To maintain temperatures ranging between
34ºF ~ 38ºF.(1ºC ~ 3ºC) We recommend the
thermostat knob be positioned at the "2:00
o'clock" setting on the graduated blue control dial.
• To turn off the refrigerator, (no cooling) rotate the
control knob to the "0" position.

BEER COOLER ICE PROBLEM


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!
