DCS is a Fischer and Paykel company.
You most likely have a defective thermister rather than a bad thermostat.

Why is it much colder at the bottom of refrigerter


Because cold air is denser than warmer air so it falls to the bottom of the fridge. I keep my beer bottles laying down on the bottom shelf at the back of the fridge.

Termperature Control


Well, the control circuit get input from thermostat.
what you need to change is right the thermostat. I do not think there is any way to lower fridge temp if you do not replace thermostat.you could put an additional switch to turn on/off manually the compressor when you need extra cold, but in this way you risk to damage the motor.
You need to change the thermostat with one that switch on at a lower temperature. to do this you may need to use a non-fabric part.

Food freezing


Hi Susan,
I had the same problem with food freezing on the bottom of the compartment, especially the veggies. I had set the thermostat to 34 for cold beer but I guess the thermostat is off a bit. I put a thermometer on the bottom shelf to make sure that I had control of the temp and set my thermostat until it was 36 inside. The thermostat on the front reads 40. I guess that 38 might be the magic number for you.

The True brand commercial refrigerator at my job is entirely too cold. How do I adjust the temp? Beer is exploding!


You will need to adjust the thermostat.
The thermostat will be hidden at the bottom back of the fridge near the compressor.
You may need a screw a flat blade driver driver to adjust the themostat

The beer froze in the chiller what could be the problem


The thermostat is stuck in the closed position if you noticed that the unit runs and runs and runs without cycling off sometimes. If it cycles, move the thermostat setting up in number (warmer). Make sure, if the unit is in your garage or otherwise not inside where it is warm, that the temp of the outside air isn't below freezing - coolers don't do warming and will not protect the beer from frigid atmospheric temps. Good luck.

Put in garage now unit will not keep cold or freeze.


Since refrigerators were designed to run in your 72° kitchen, when you put a fridge outside, where its colder than normal operating REFRIGERATOR temperatures, i.e. 35-40°F, because that ambient temp is colder than fridge temp, the thermostat in the fridge section reads it as normal temperature, and does not turn unit on. it does not read what the freezer temp is. You have a couple of choices: bring the unit inside, heat your garage, or only use it for pop and beer in the summer. You can reply here or send me a question from my website: www.FixMyFridge.net

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.

Marvel 6bar-bd gets too cold - explodes soda can


I also have the same problem. Our Marvel 6BAR runs continuously until the beverages freeze. A technician came out and replaced the thermistor under warranty. It was a simple repair that anyone could do. This solved the problem for about another 18 months, but it has returned. I will now search for this part and do the repair myself. It only takes a few minutes to do.

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...
