Hey everyone. I have an ±10 year old Edgestar kegorator. Over the weekend I went to pull a pint of beer and nothing came out. I realized that I had two partially full kegs of beer/cider in there that were pretty much frozen solid. I believe that the thermostat crapped out and the fridge was running continuously. Instead of replacing the thermostat, I was thinking of just hooking up a temperature controller. Does anyone have any recommendations on which one I should get?
This isn’t going to answer your question but how empty is the freezer section of your fridge? A sure fire way to mess up a fridge is to have an empty freezer. I keep gallon buckets of water frozen in our work freezer because it will runs too often without a mass of cold helping it because nobody uses the freezer and it would be empty otherwise.
Add the Johnson A419
There is no freezer compartment. It’s just a fridge.
I will check it out. Thanks!
Me do like inkbird controlers. Easy in use
I have had good luck with inkbirds as well. And they are pretty inexpensive so you could buy a spare to have on hand.
Inkbird for the price can’t be beat.
HEY, Welcome back Loopie!!
Thank you to everybody for the suggestions. My LHBS didn’t have the Inkbird in stock, so I went with the Johnson A421. It works great and seems to be a quality product. The funny thing is the LHBS had it cheaper than anywhere I had seen online.
You’ll be happy with the Johnson Controller. I have two and they(knocks on wood) have worked great for years.
Mine gets a hiccup once in a very great while… The rubber end of my mighty Estwing hammer straightens it right out… I’m very happy with mine…
