My unit will not go below 41 degrees...


I would remove the compressor cover panel and check the condenser coils for being clogged with dirt and dust. Clean if needed. While in there check to see if the compressor is running hot. Operating very warm is normal but too hot to touch is Bad. If that is not the problem, I suggest recovering the refrigerant gas in a tank and replace the receiver drier by welding in a new drier and recharging the system with new clean R134A gas

Being it is brand new you should contact Frigidaire about getting it repaired or replaced under warranty.

I have a Beverage Air model MT 27. Coils have been cleaned and recharged with freon. Cooler will not cool below 50 degrees?


You'll need to check the back-pressure on the low-side of the system, you have a faulty compressor. If there is a condenser fan motor make sure it is running when the compressor is on.

Fridgadaire beverage center too warm


It should get cooler than that at least down to 33-34 degrees. Be sure you have air flow behind the unit, not pushed against wall. Feel for cold air coming from freezer to lower part just behind light bulb. If it is not turning off and defrosting they will do this as ice builds up and results in no air movement. you may want to remove the cover in the back of freezer and see if it is froze up. Or just turn it off and defrost and start back over the next day. The defroster timer may also be bad and it is under cover beside the light bulb.

Whirlpool Beverage Center (WBC127BLS) - Won't cool enough


If you're handy with a soldering iron, it's possible to 'trick' the fridge into cooling down a few more degrees.

Long version:
If you open the door to the fridge, on the right wall near the bottom is a small plastic grate. You should be able to pull this straight out from the side wall. There is a temperature sensor attached to the back of the grate. Unplug the sensor. (The fridge will then give you a very annoying error beep and display "EE" on the readout. Pushing the °F-°C button stopped the beeping.) This sensor will change resistance with temperature. (The lower the temperature, the higher the resistance) I was reading a resistance of about 3700 ohms at 43°F and 2460 ohms at 68°F. Throw in a rough assumption that the response is linear and it works out to almost 50ohms/degree. In order to 'trick' the fridge into cooling down more, you need to drop the resistance. I was aiming for about 6 degrees cooler. Assuming the resistance response was linear, 6 degrees cooler would give me about 4000 ohms from the sensor. By jumpering a 50000 ohm resistor (yes, 50K ohm) in parallel with the sensor, I should get about 6 degrees cooler. I did the soldering, plugged the sensor back in, and ended up about 8 degrees cooler. Two days so far, everything appears good and the beer is cold.

Short version:
Put a 50K ohm resistor in parallel with the temperature sensor behind the grate on the inside right hand wall.

The temperature read out will be inaccurate forever after though. But then, I just want cold beer, my wife wants cold water, and the kids want to play with the cool blue light. I don't care what the number on the readout is.

BEER COOLER ICE PROBLEM


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!

HAIER BEER REFRIDGERATOR


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.
