This probably has a solid state defrost timer. It will have to be replaced.

Beverage Air MT17 cools sporadically. I turn the temp control setting to 5 and it will go down to 28 degrees F and the next day it will be at 55 F. I have to turn the control knob to off position then turn...

Low refrigerant would make it inefficient but if it chills to 28° it can't be that bad. I think you have a control issue. The compressor runs when you reset to off & on, then chills until it satisfies the thermostat, then shuts off. But then is not starting again when the temperature rises. You'll need to follow the control wiring to see what contacts are open and not passing power to the compressor. Control wiring is typically 24v ac or 115v ac. There's also the possibility that the compressor is tripping out on overload at 28°. You effect a reset when you turn it off, then on.
