I have an older Perlick kegerator that I got used and only gets down to 41 F on coldest setting, 50 F on warmest setting. All temps taken with calibrated lab thermometer in large glass of water. Condenser fins are clean, compressor cycles, evaporator fan runs constantly. Is it the thermostat? I cleaned off the fan blades for the evaporator and wondering if the pitch of the fans blade has something to do with it.

first turn your refrigerator temp setting to 1 then wait for the compressor to kick off, this will send the unit into defrost mode, and most units take between 1 to 2 hours to acclimate(get tempered) correctly. after a few hours gradually turn your unit towards 9 until the compressor kicks on, when it does , stop turning the knob, it will acclimate again, 1-2 hours (some units can acclimate in 15 minutes) check your unit temp and do not use the unit if it won't cool down to 43 or less degrees, you run the chance of food poisoning. hope this was helpful.
The only way I have found to seal those tops back down is with 100% silicone caulk, NOT LATEX OR BUYTAL, silicon.( We use 3m.) Then hold it down with cinder blocks for at least 24 hours then you are in business.
no use a Ranco p# A12-700 make sure the capillary is in the coilto sense the temp and set it to 1.5 on the knob. any colder and it could get too cold . you may be able to set it at 2 but be careful. it is a constant cut in at 37 degrees coil temp. the box temp will drop to usually to 28 or 29 at cut out.
mark pasieka has an inventory of refridgeration, kegerator and bar related parts (as well as everything else)... he has this bracket in his warehouse right now... at least one... he also has tanks of CO2, oxygen acetalyne anything you may need... firstname.lastname@example.org
Sounds like the fan can be running backwards. I'm not sure of you exact model, but it has to match the air flow of the original unit. Do you remember? Some manufacturers use reversable motors and are some what easy to reverse.
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.
