Default Keezer not holding temps...

So I believe my keezer is dying. It's an old kenmore from 1982. 24 cu ft. I love it. It holds four cornies and a 1/2 barrel with CO2 and and a couple cold crashing carboys.

For the last week or so, it has not been holding temps. It stays in the 50s and sometimes up into the lower 60's.

Love TSX controller.

I called an appliance repair place. They quoted me $400 to switch it over from R12 to R134a.

The compressor runs...a lot.

is there anything you guys can think of that I could check? Or has my freezer finally died from the extra demand of being a keezer?

Its probably dying because its 30 years old.

You got your $ out of it, time to move on.
