If you're using a fridge it might be as simple as adjusting the dial inside, my kegerator is at the warmest setting and it still keeps my beer a little too cold.

When I was using a chest freezer before it died I made a pretty simple STC-1000 from ebay for $15. Theres about a million guides online that would do a better job explaining than me.

Are the kegs frozen or just the lines?

I've had my lines freeze on me before when they were too close to the cold air port on my fridge.
