Fans inside should run steady for proper operation of the cooling system. Since you used the term fans I would think you have an open circuit to the fan motors. It may be something as simple as the cord for the fan power is unplugged. This plug would be located under the evaporator cover.

The temp in the box dont reach desired temp

Hello Troy, thank you for your post!

According to the above-listed model number you seem to have a side by side refrigerator, is that correct? If so, often if it is not cooling, it could have floating restriction in the line or something more complicated like an issue with the sealed system that only a professional can repair. This can include the compressor not working, the evaporator fan not turning, or even coolant in the lines at incorrect levels to properly cool. I suggest cleaning the unit out including the coils you can reach (typically located in the bottom behind the toe grille) and make sure no food items are blocking any vents in the unit. Also try checking and see if the door seal is bad; place a dollar bill between the body of the freezer and the door. Now close the door. The dollar bill should stay in place and pull out with a small amount of resistance. If the dollar bill falls out when placed between the gasket and cabinet double check to see if the door is being blocked by anything stopping it from closing. If any of these suggestions prove to be ineffective, connect with a professional to accurately pinpoint any potentially more serious issues.

Cooler Compressor runs but cooler won't get cold?

If the compressor kicks in then check the lines to see if they are cold. It is possible the compressor burnt out from leaving the door open. Purchase a sensor alarm to alert you if the door is left open.

OK, here's the problem - Samsung model RB1955SH - plug refrig in it cools both frig and freezer to desired settings - however, once system reaches stttings and turns off compressor, will not restart system...

the temp controller is bad in the fridge once it reaches cooling temp desired it cause the temp comtroller to go into a shut off mode due to being weak on the temp sensor tube

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.

Just purchased, plugged in....set temp....not cooling.

Is compressor running? If so, call tech. out as its under gaurentee. Just a thought, when you selected the temp did you press accept. Possibly comp. wont activate untill correct setting is done.

My Haier 12 wine bottle cooler is dead. No fan or cooling .

Check the 2 fuses,one covered with black heat shrink, next see if internal fan is spinning, inside door, the 2 fans on the back should spin when first plugged in. also the 2 led's red and green should light up...if internal fan doesn't spin then check or replace, use batteries to get it to spin as a test...good luck,safety first...

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

If you're handy with a soldering iron, it's possible to 'trick' the fridge into cooling down a few more degrees.

Long version:
If you open the door to the fridge, on the right wall near the bottom is a small plastic grate. You should be able to pull this straight out from the side wall. There is a temperature sensor attached to the back of the grate. Unplug the sensor. (The fridge will then give you a very annoying error beep and display "EE" on the readout. Pushing the °F-°C button stopped the beeping.) This sensor will change resistance with temperature. (The lower the temperature, the higher the resistance) I was reading a resistance of about 3700 ohms at 43°F and 2460 ohms at 68°F. Throw in a rough assumption that the response is linear and it works out to almost 50ohms/degree. In order to 'trick' the fridge into cooling down more, you need to drop the resistance. I was aiming for about 6 degrees cooler. Assuming the resistance response was linear, 6 degrees cooler would give me about 4000 ohms from the sensor. By jumpering a 50000 ohm resistor (yes, 50K ohm) in parallel with the sensor, I should get about 6 degrees cooler. I did the soldering, plugged the sensor back in, and ended up about 8 degrees cooler. Two days so far, everything appears good and the beer is cold.

Short version:
Put a 50K ohm resistor in parallel with the temperature sensor behind the grate on the inside right hand wall.

The temperature read out will be inaccurate forever after though. But then, I just want cold beer, my wife wants cold water, and the kids want to play with the cool blue light. I don't care what the number on the readout is.

Power Problem

You will certainly have to replace the thermostat. Typical problem is once temp. is reached, it takes forever to come on.
