Question about Frigidaire PLKU1267DS Stainless Steel Refrigerator Beverage Cooler

Beer not getting cold

Have had 2 thermostats put in and temp. will not go below 45 degrees. I have had 2 half barrels spoil all ready. I have had it just over a year and fridgaire will not cover anymore parts or labor. The dealership's service company will not come anymore, they say there is nothing wrong and it is working just fine. I have had thermometers in the fridge for 6 months and monitered every day since. I would like a cold beer or soda again.

Yes it is very possible that exactly what you are describing can be happening. Also try a thermometer frozen in a cup of water to get more accurate temps. Also 33 in the fridge is very normal for the cold control set on max and the heater installed. Let me know the temps in the frz with the thermometer sensing product temp not air temp which fluctuates often.

Generally speaking it is the refrigerator control that controls the compressor operation. Refrigerator is cooled by air from the freezer. When the refrigerator gets down to its designed temperature it shuts off the compressor. The freezer control determines how much air is allowed to flow into the refrigerator section and there-by controls the freezer temperature.

SOURCE: freezer is freezing but fridge is not cold as it was

Sounds like defrost timer is not putting the refrigerator in defrost every 8 hours. You freezer should be below -5 degrees. Also the condenser beneath the refrigerator possibly needs cleaning. First slowly turn the defrost timer clockwise until freezer goes in defrost. You should hear the sound of crackling noise in freezer after about one minute into defrost. If timer does not come out of defrost or does not turn itself then replace it. Let me know what you find, Thanks Sea Breeze

SOURCE: My fridge does not get cold anymore....

You may be able to DIY if the problem is what I think it is.
Most combination units have the cooling located in the freezer compartment and use a fan to 'stir' the cold air and distribute it to the refrigerator compartment. If this fan fails, then the fridge no longer gets fed any cooled air or at least very little.
With the compressor running, hold a couple of wet fingers near the vents in the fridge that are located in the back and top. If you don't find a fairly good stream of cold air coming oout of the vents, then the fan is definitely bad.
These fans have only sleeve bearings of sintered bronze with graphite embedded in them. They can build up enough loose graphite to jam the motor shaft so the fan cannot turn any more. Sometimes, if the bearing is not too worn, you can work WD-40 or similar into them by spraying while turning the fan with a finger (power off, of course!). The WD-40 should be used to wash out the graphite from the bearing, don't expect it to really lubricate, it is a good solvent but evaporates pretty quickly. Once the fan turns easily, grasp one or more blades and move it left or right, up or down, to feel if the bearing has now too much play. If it does, replace the fan, they aren't expensive (that's why they fail).
As far accessing the fan, you are on your own since access varies from one brand to another.

Beer system won't pour properly


Most of the time this reason is the beer temp and co2 is not right. first you dont go buy box temp but need to get beer temp. first make sure you have a calibrated thermometer. check your thermometer by mixing up a glass of ice and water let it stand a couple Min to achieve 32deg. put thermometer in water let stand 2 min to make sure it reads 32 deg. now draw a couple of glasses of beer in the same cup pour each in a pitcher. now draw a 3rd glass of beer in the same glass put the thermometer in it you wont the beer at 38 deg if to cold turn your box thermostat up or if to hot turn your box thermostat down to achieve a 38 deg beer. now it is time to check the CO2 pressure, you wont it at 12 psi. first drink a couple glasses with your friends this will let your keg pressure equalize. Now it is time to do a test poor. If the faucet gives a spurt of foam when you open it or the beer runs foamy-clear-foamy-clear than the pressure is too low, bump the pressure up 2 LB and let the pressure equalize a few min. If the beer runs to fast, turn off the co2 at the shut off where the tubing connects to the regulator (Always turn off the shut off when adjusting the regulator). Release some pressure from the keg by pulling the pressure relief valve on the keg coupler. Drop the co2 pressure 2 lbs. Turn the co2 line back on and let the pressure equalize. Often you can tell if the pressure is too low by looking at the beer line at where it connects at the keg coupler. If you see bubbles rising up the beer line from the coupler the pressure is to low or the seal on the keg or coupler is bad. Over many years of trouble shooting 3/16" bore shanks and fittings can cause a burst effect releasing carbonation from the liquid. The beer flow looks good but you end up with a glass half full of beer and half foam. For this reason 1/4" bore shanks and fittings should always used on the liquid side.

Termperature Control


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.

1 year old kitchenaid kbfs25etss01. all of a sudden the fridge temp is up to 55 degrees. i did put a bunch of water, soda and beer in the fridge tonight. is it blocking something? door seems shut.


Hi,
Watch the unit for at least a hour, to see if the temps drop. You could have had the door open too long and lost a lot of air. Normally, they can recover from this, and this is nothing to worry about. I loaded my today also and my temps went up to 45, but my door way open for about 10 mins or so. Don't check the unit for at least 1 hour. Allow time for the system to recover. It should be ok. It should be able to drop temps with in a hour or a least 10 degrees.
Get back to me if you have any more question or concerns.
Good Luck, enjoy your cold beer....

Can the U-Line 15WC Wine Captain be converted to a beer cooler? Can it be adjusted so that it gets colder?


Here is a couple of reason that answer is no. One the thermostat is designed for 45 - 60 degrees. 2 The door is only design for those temperatures as well. I believe you are going to need the bee around 34 degrees. A wine captain would never make it. Its also design for 3 different temps at once. coldest on bottom and warmest on top.

I have a Sanyo kegerator that will not cool enough. I have set the thermostat as cold as it will go and it will only go down to about 42 degrees. What can I look for?


Drop thae stat it's a screw on the left side that controls temp.Don't rush this you don't wnt to freeze your beer. 1,5 turns to the left will take you down to ice cold beer.

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.

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.
