Beer Refridge Running

14 posts in this topic

The Fridge in the garage is constantly running. I can turn it all the way down and it still runs. It will freeze everything in it and still run.

I pulled it away from the wall and everything seems clean.

The freezer is full of frozen water jugs for the summer season so I don't understand why it keeps running.

Any ideas?

Maybe a mouse crawled up the back and made a nest around the temp sensor.

Have you tried shutting it down?

I shut it down occasionally, cuz it freezes my beer.

It doesn't seem to help.

No expert, but maybe it has to with the temperature in the garage. My beer frige was not working well this winter, and my garage temp was in the 30's and 40's all winter. I died a few time,but ever since the weather warmed up, it has been running fine.

My garage is insulated, so I think I will add a heater by next winter, and I hope that will work

Sounds to me like your thermostat is shot. Its not shutting it down when its cold enough inside. Cold is hard on compressors and shortens their life, but it shouldn't change whether the thermostat works or not.

I've seen a case where it turned out the light wasn't shutting off and it was giving off enough heat that the fridge wouldn't cycle properly.

Like the ol'question goes how do you know the light wasn't off when the door was closed?? HMMM Does a tree make a noise when it falls if no one is around to hear it??? Don't tell me the beer told you so!!!!!!!!! Just funnen with ya!!!

With a name like Swill, I don't think I can afford to have you over.

    • I usually get mine from Tim over at Stump Jumper Designs. He does great work and has lots of choices of woods etc... 
    •   Yeah, but you know your Aunt Bev will never make fun and insult you on FaceBook like you will get here! 
    • Smoked 3 slimers last week.  real simple brine, 1 cup pickling salt, 1 cup brown sugar and water to cover.  24 hr soak.  added onions and brown sugar on top. 3.5 hrs at 195.  Used to leave skin on, dealt with the slime.  still tasted great.  Been skin off for a couple batches lately and its the way to go.  no slime to deal with, just sprayed the rack with pam.  hammerhandles be ware!
    • I've only tried them with Northern, but honestly, I'm not sure I could taste the difference if I didn't make them myself.  All psychological, IMO - this will likely start an off-topic discussion BUT I participated in an 8 person taste test between Walleye, Northern and Bass (yes, we cut-up a medium sized bucket-mouth).  I was the only one to name all three fish correctly and it was only due to the fact that my friend who was in-charge of the test accidentally missed a y-bone so I just had to guess in-between walleye and bass and I guessed correctly.  A couple of the guys also had a y-bone and got their guess between 'eye and bass wrong!!!  Flaky white fish is flaky white fish - especially when you bust it all up, mix it with bread crumbs, mayo and whatever else.  Again, just my opinion.
    •   I agree the split did not work out. Also a lot of people are on FB. Heck I finally joined last year. Jury is still out whether I like it or not!!
    •   Just like you being a social media queen, LOL

    • Every one said, with out Double here we may as well leave.   So, Welcome back may be with you here they will come back now! 
    • My buddy Dan and I have been going to the same farm for 3 years now and the turkey hunting is almost unfair. We've never been skunked and the only time we haven't tagged out is the first year.    This year the bowhunting was tough. We were trying to be fancy and get things on film and it hurt us tremendously. So, naturally, we gave up on filming and went back to having fun.    We shot 4 turkeys, a tom and a jake each, all by fanning (reaping). The action was intense and super fun. Additionally, after having a set busted by a wandering daytime coyote, I lip squeaked her into to 20 yards and finished her off with the same treatment, a load of #6 to the face. My jake and the coyote are on cell phone video so I will see about sharing those.   My tom, came on the last day. He ran more than 200 yds just to confront that turkey fan. Due to a depression in the landscape, I had no idea where he would come up. He emerged at 10 FEET! and in a split second I shot him at 8FEET!! Thankfully I had the bead on his head or I would've likely missed. Nothing beats turkey hunting with your best buddy.    And I'm having a taxidermist friend of mine do a euro mount on the coyote skull. Unfortunately the hide was shedding terribly and was matted with mud.
