    I realize this unit has poor reviews and needs improvements and I have the parts to take care of that once I can get the unit functioning- if possible. Some say it needs a "charge" but I don't know if it's like a car where you can recharge the AC. Or if it's a bad relay or switch? Thanks for any advice you can give.

    The unit is about 2 years old and one keg was put through it before it sat.
    When you say the unit is running, do you mean that the compressor runs?
    If so & it is not getting cold then it could very well be out of refrigerant which means you have a leak, not good. And no, it is not like a car. It is a sealed system so if it is out, it has a leak. Even in a car if it is low it means there is a leak.
