This solution probably costs more than you care to spend on the problem, but you can buy an external temp controller like this one:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0002EAL58
You run the probe into the fridge and plug the fridge into the controller. Then the controller will only turn on the fridge if it gets warmer than the temperature you specify.
You might be able to find it cheaper on ebay, too. I'm using this on a kegerator and can keep my beer at a consistent temp.

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.

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.

Beer freezes


The proper temperature should be between 35 and 42 degrees. Here are some things to try:

  • If your refrigerator temperature is closer to 35 degrees, try turning the temperature up slightly.

  • If the temperature is too low and you can't make it warmer by adjusting the thermostat, you probably have a defective thermostat.

Beverage-Air Kegerator Not Staying Cold


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.

Too much foam


well you are right the CO2 is causing the foam you may need to replace the regulator on the tank it is most likely bypassing the bellows inside...as a temp fix you can shut down the co2 and bleed off the air then just crack open the tank to (hand) regulate the flow ..

Temperature on Keg Cooler (DKC644BLS) is dropping below freezing


Mine did this as well. last night the diplay read "LE" and the temp controls and the C/F buttons were unresponsive. I called Danby. Although I was on hold for 30 minutes, when they did answer they were very helpful. As mentioned elsewhere here, the touchpad has gone bad. You can order it right over the phone. The price of the touchpad is only $2 and shipping is $7. I ordered 2 of the touchpads (why not, right?) and the shipping was still $7 for the both. # for Danby is1-800-263-2629. Make sure your phone is charged.

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...
