Sounds like a bad thermostat. Normal setting is 3 to 5, with 5 being colder, and in my experience, more common. Prices vary but a thermostat is $50 - $75 labor should take no more than two hours - (less if you have the unit completely empty and warm when the tech arrives). The sensor goes into a sheath on the coil so if its cold there can be ice jamming the sensor from coming out or the new one from going in. The thermostat can be calibrated sometimes but it will generally cost the same with less reliable results.

You can do so but the freezing temperature may not be as good on a standard fridge specially for frozen foods as the mini is mainly meant for emergency foods and beverages.

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.

The beverages in my True refrigerator are frozen


Definitely a thermostat problem. Make sure that it is set on #3, make sure you have something in the box to provide a constant load (if you are worried about product freezing just put several gallons containers of water in there), set a thermometer on a shelf and let it run for several hours. Temperature should run 35-40f If it still freezes I recommend changing the thermostat. Not the easiest job on a True but the only real option. If it is too warm then raise the setting to #4 and run for several hours more and double check the temperature. It is normal for these box temperatures to "swing" quite a bit especially if empty. The thermostat actually senses coil temperature and not unit air temperature. Typically it cycles off when the coil reaches around 14f and then back on when the coil gets to around 38-40f.

Unplug the fridge overnight and defrost it completely. Ensure the thermostat is properly set.

If it does not restart normal function after you plug back, then there may be a fault concerning the digital control, in that case call the number listed on the owner manual.

The starting components on the compressor could be going bad. You need to turn off the thermostat and then after about five minutes turn it on while listening to the compressor to hear if it kicks in, if it doesn't then you might have faulty starting component, more likely the overload.
