I've noticed this single catagory forum has had little action.
Was it designed to be a place to seek answers or help?
I may be going out on a limb here but if anyone needs help in dealing with a home appliance, electrical, plumbing, gardening etc. problem I may be of help.
I've had many years experience in home appliance and repair and can fix almost anything.
If I can't help I'll say so up front...

We've got an old Beverage-Air beer tap that keeps freezing up. Changed the thermostat but that didn't do the trick. If you can fix it, you've go the job and as many cold beers as you want to drink.

Is it the beer that's freezing or the evaporator coils?

The beer is not freezing. The temperature drops when the thing-a-ma-jing inside (not the coils on the outside) ices over. The part that ices up hangs from the top of the interior -- above the kegs and beneath the taps/spigots.

It sounds like it may be short of freon - something that I don't fool with. The door seal ( you said it was old) may be leaking in moisture as well.
Any a/c guy could check the freon but it would be a lot cheaper to take it in to someone...good luck.

Thanks for the all I can drink beer offer - I can't drink as much as we did back in the day...
