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. Hope this helps! Let us know, will ya?

If the thermostat has been bypassed it sounds like lack of refrigerant gas in the system. The level cant be checked visually, it will need to be checked by an engineer with pressure gauges.

yes there's a ballast. on the top of fridge where you put the lights for the sign if you remove the plastic cover there should be a couple of them there.

Bi-pin Fluorescent Lamp Installation /Verification Prior to applying power to the unit, verify that all lamps are properly installed and fully engaged in the lamp holders.

Proper lamp engagement is achieved by rotating the lamp 90° from its insertion position until it "snaps" or "clicks" into place.

Visual verification can be made on units without safety shields by using the identification mark on the end of the bulb. Properly installed bulbs will have the mark centered between the "halves" of the lamp holder.

On units with shields, the identification mark cannot be seen. Physically verify that the lamp has been rotated and locked into place.

Caution: Improperly installed lamps may cause damage to the lighting circuit. Beverage-Air shall have no liability whatsoever for equipment or component failures or other damages or losses which arise as a result of improper installation.

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.

If all lights off on my coca cola commercial cooler now, is that because ballast issue?

Or it could be a problem with the light switch(with most commercial coolers, there's a light switch near the thermostat, if not, it may be hidden somewhere else on the machine.) Before replacing the ballast check to see if you have power coming to the ballast with a voltmeter. If you do, either the ballast is bad or all of the lights are bad(not likely, but possible).
If you don't have power coming to the ballast then go back to the light switch and see if you have power before the switch, if you don't, there's a wiring problem before the switch, if you do, the switch is your problem.

Flourescant lights flickering

is there a ballast or a starter? if there is a starter (little silver metal or white plastic can), then replace the transformer inside the lamp housing. if there is a ballast (long black rectangle with many wires) and you replaced that and the lamp, then there must be a power drain in the unit somewhere.

. Remove the back cover in the freezer to observe the frost pattern. Light frost everywhere(NORMAL) or a partial pattern of ice(LOW ON FREON) or nothing(LOW FREON OR COMPRESSOR PROBLEM). If heavily iced up...

How to check everything
If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

Find locate of lighting ballast in 3 door BevAir cooler

Sometimes they are in the overheade space above the cooler .. if they were inside then they would have to be HO ballasts because of the temperature .. sometimes they are in the moulding strip under the lamp itself.

True 2 door light problem

I believe that unit has a ballast tucked in somewhere in the compressor compartment. It may be easier to access from the back of the unit. I don't think it has a starter.

Interior Lighting on True Refrigerator Unit

A starter may be located in the top area inside the cooler. Not all true coolers have starters. Check the connections where the light pins slide into. Also may need new ballast.
