Darn it, my kegerator stopped cooling. The power is switching properly to the compressor. It get's really hot and goes out on the thermal protection. I talked to an appliance guy who said a freezer working at refrigerator temps would burn out the compressor every two years or so. Something about low pressure without ever running long enough or something. I really doubt that is true since I've had another small one working fine for 5 years or so.
Anywho, it's the one in the sig link below. Large chest type with 8 taps. Has anyone successfully swapped out a compressor on these things? I know it would probably be more expensive than a new keezer, but my time and effort is worth something too. Has anyone done an out of box thing like putting one of those $99 AC units sticking out the side or something? Any help would be appreciated. My beer is getting sadly warm.
