I have a old BM23 Kegerator that I got for free, On the coldest setting it will cool in the 30's and then the compressor will shut off and never come back on.  I checked the individual parts with a multimeter and it showed the relay was no good.  I changed the relay and turned it to the next to lowest temp. , It cooled to about 36 shut off, but would not come back on until about 60 degrees.  What could the problem be?  Thermostat bad?

"Thermostat bad?
Most likely, provided thats the only thing involved with controlling the temp. If the thermostat is just a standard 120 volt switch type like used in small refrigerators. If thats the case the next time it gets too warm you could jumper the thermostat with a wire. If it starts up and runs ok then you know the thermostat is shot.

I am an amateur at refrigerator repair, by jumper you mean run a wire from the thermostat to where?  Thanks for the help, much appreciated.

Take the two wires that go to the thermostat and hook them together, by-passing the thermostat for a test...
