Question about Beverage-Air Refrigerators
I own a Beverage-Air SF34-B bottle cooler that is 10 years old and have to put freon in it about once a year. I know there is a tiny leak somewhere but can't find it. Should I try and call someone to fix it or replace the entire refrigerator?

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?

I really like the Danby wine coolers, they are usually nice products. As far as your problem, I would first try to find out where the main problem area is. To do that first make sure that your compressor is running. If the compressor is running and it is not cooling then you may have a freon charge issue. Thats not to say that you can just put some more freon in and it is fixed, You would have a leak in your sealed system and you would most likely still have warranty coverage for that. Most Danby products carry a 5 year sealed system warranty. That would include your compressor.
If the compressor is not running then you would know that you have a compressor issue. Either the relay overload on the compressor would need to be replaced or the compressor itself was bad. You can buy relay kits for about $30.00 and intall them easily with very little experiance.
Next if the compressor is doing its thing and trying to cool you could have a fan not blowing air properly. either a condenser or evaporator fan may have stopped. If you find one not working then chances are you just need a fan. If the fans are blowing and the compressor is working then you would just have a defrost problem. In that case you would just need to defrost then check for bad parts, either a defrost heater, defrost thermostat or a defrost timer. Most of the Danby products have a defrost control board, that board willl contorl the defrost, the temperature, and the fans. If the board was cheap I would say just put one on and see if it fixed the problem, but they are around $145.00.
The most important thing for you would be to make sure you are not going to do something that would void your warranty. Free service is always the best. Good luck to you and send some wine my way, I make lots of different types. from grapes, strawberrys, muskedyne, etc.... email@example.com

Paul, we have the same problem with a built-in Kitchenaid and the price of replacing the fridge is out of sight for us. Where did you get the equipment to check the freon and replace it?

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.
