Verify that the compressor is actually running. You should feel it vibrating. If the compressor runs with no cooling most likely the refrigerant level is low.

Bill, the main reason I've noticed for higher than normal temps in these boxes is filthy condenser coils (this will affect pressures in your sealed system). Remove the front lower panel and inspect your coils. Use a coil brush or a dust broom to thoroughly clean them up, don't use water. You can also pick up some condenser coil cleaner in a spray can from your local appliance parts store, but it's not necessary (the fumes are strong and may be objectionable to your customers... it gets 'em really clean, though!) After cleaning the coils, allow 24 hours for temps to stabilize. If they don't, here is a site for Beverage-Air, contact your local servicer with you exact model and serial number for pressure specifications. http://www.beverage-air.com/technical.service.html Hope this helps! Let us know, will ya?

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

1. check for dirty condenser sometimes if its dirty enough, it'll trip the compressor.
2. if condenser is dirty, well pull out the old garden hose and hose down the condenser (turn off unit first!)(i don't want any accidents... je je je)

if you did step 2 and nothing yet, suspect faulty relay/ overload/ start capacitor failure (relay and start capacitors fail more often then the overload.

hope to he of some help today.

SOURCE: 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.

My beverage cooler MCBC58DST wont stay cool after it reaches target temp.


Throw it out and get another model from another company. Their units are junk!
They last a year, at best. Them and Magic Chef are one and the same...so you may have to bite the bullet and get a real unit.

Good luck. I speak from experience...I've had four now. Complete junk!!

Adding freon to a commercial beverage air mm14ge cooler


If it needs gas it has a leak. These coolers generally don't come with gauge access ports and need to be silver brazed into place. These systems have a critical charge and will not operate right unless the exact ounces of refrigerant are in the system. The temperature controls measure coil temperature instead of cabinet temperature. The wrong charge makes them run and run and they cant control temperature. Hope this helped.

What does the overload relay look like a Beverage-Air MT27 Beverage Cooler Commercial


Normally thermal overloads have a button like appearance on the compressor. Designed to open circuit when temp has caused distortion to the bi-metal contacts. Upon cooling will close again. Disconnect power before checking continunity on the overload terminals.

Will not cool. Fan runs, have cleaned coil.


The compressor may not be starting. Put your forehead against the nmachine when youturn it on or plug it in, You will feel the vibration of the pump. If it is not coming on, you may need a technician to what determine why it is not working.

Fan in cooling compartment


The fan inside the unit should run all the time, this insures a more constant temp throughout the compartment by keeping the air moving.
