I have a U-Line BC75DT beer dispenser. It is keeping a temp of 40F right now. The thermostat shows a setting of 9.0 as coldest but the knob only goes to 6.5. I pulled the knob off, it is pin indexed so it only goes on one way. I tried to turn the metal pin under the plastic knob but it won't go any farther either. The compresser is drawing 1.7 amps when it's running. It kicks in about every 10-15 mins for a couple minutes. I checked the condensor and cleaned it, it had a liitle dust, not much though. Is there a trick to turning this thing colder. I'm sure if it ran more it would get much colder. Any ideas??
cenck for volatge at wire harness and if you get the right volatge then repl condenser motor you can use a small portable fan just face it at compressor while you look for part and tha will kepp compressor from over heating and tripping the relay on it ok

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.
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.
Keep a thermometer handy. (adjust temperature control knob accordingly)
Periodically monitor temperatures inside your cooler. (adjust as necessary)
Keep the refrigerator door closed as much as possible to avoid temperature fluctuations
The temperature of the refrigerator compartment is
controlled by adjusting/setting the thermostat control
knob, located on the ceiling of the refrigerator
To start the refrigerator, and achieve maximum
• Turn the temperature control knob (using a coin
or screwdriver) clockwise to the furthest
(maximum) setting on the darker blue section of
the graduated control dial.
• Allow the refrigerator to run at this setting for 3~4
• When maximum cooling is achieved, turn back
the temperature control knob setting to the 2:00
o'clock position on the graduated blue control
• Correct cooling temperature is a key factor to
consider in storing and dispensing draught beer.
• Optimum temperature for serving draught beer is
between 34ºF ~ 38ºF.(1ºC ~ 3ºC)
• To maintain temperatures ranging between
34ºF ~ 38ºF.(1ºC ~ 3ºC) We recommend the
thermostat knob be positioned at the "2:00
o'clock" setting on the graduated blue control dial.
• To turn off the refrigerator, (no cooling) rotate the
control knob to the "0" position.
First, dont overstock your beer, good circulation is key. Make sure your condenser coils are clean. Find a happy setting with the help of a thermometer to cool between 35 - 42 degrees. To defrost I put big zipl-loc bags of ice on top of beer. Turn temperature all the way up (the compressor will cut off but the fan will keep running) for a few hours. When the ice is thick i put HOT water in a squirt bottle and spray sections in the ice. Play around with that and see if it works. Hopefully you don't have a bad condenser. Good luck!
I have this same problem. I have read discussions on this exact topic in several forums, and I have come across a link to a Haier Service Website. http://service.haieramerica.com/ When you go to this site login with password "HAIER" and UserID "HAIER" and look up your model number (my model number is "HBF05EABB)". There is a "service bulletin" which provides instruction/pictures for adjusting the thermostat. I have not tried this yet, but I intend to later tonight. I like my beer a little cooler than 41 degrees! Hope this helps.
Draught (or Draft) beer is almost always un-pasteurized and therefore is more fragile. It should be consumed after being "tapped", and is generally truer to the flavors of the ingredients as pasteurization exposes the beer to heat and changes the flavor profile. Always use brewery approved beer line if you want to have foam free fresh tasting beer. Serving it through a plastic tube from the hardware or discount store or the plain vinyl tubing in your beer tap system you will wind up with a foamy, off tasting beer. Real draught beer is not pasteurized. It must be kept refrigerated between 35F. and 44F. A beer will become wild, turn sour and cloudy in a day or two. Below 44F. a keg of draught beer should last 20-30 days before it loses it's fresh brewery taste and aroma. Craft beers (micro brews) tend to have a shorter shelf life and you should contact the brewery for their recommendations.
Why does my beer foam up?
The 3 most often causes of beer foaming up are:
The temperature of the beer keg
The balance of the draught beer system pressures
The cleanliness of the draught beer system
I would suggest that you clean or replace the beer transport tube...
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.
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...
