So many of these beverage centers are meant for wine and drinks and con't have the capability of getting down to 37 degrees like a normal refrigerator. Most can not get below 45 degrees or so at a minimum. Unfortunately I'm not sure what your return policy is at the place your purchased it, but at 7 months old they likely will not allow you to return it and get a different product that you like in exchange. It is less than a year old so you can call warranty and see if they will come out and look at the unit or if you need to drop it off somewhere to have it checked out to be sure something isn't wrong, but if the temperature gets to about 45 degrees (which makes soda not near as cold as one would like) then likely the unit is just designed to get no colder than 45 degrees. It's cheaper to build them this way but still allows you keep things cooler than room temperature which is why some units are designed this way.
