ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS
Installing the Casters
1. With the contents inside the cabinet removed set the beer dispenser on its side.
2. Insert each caster into the holes on the bottom corners of the cabinet. Screw the
casters in hand tight.
3. With all four casters tightened evenly, stand the unit in an upright position.
Note: Allow the beer dispenser to stand in an upright position for 8 hours before turning
on the power. This will ensure that the coolant has settled.
Installing the Beer Tower and Faucet
1. Remove the cabinet plug located on the top of the unit. Firmly grasp and twist and
pull upward. (It may help to open the cabinet and push up on the cabinet plug
with your hand from inside the unit).
Note: You should store this plug in a safe place as it is required to convert the beer
dispenser into a refrigerator
2. Take the tower and untangle the tubing. From the top of the unit, feed the tubing
through the hole and into the unit.
3. Align the black adapter at the bottom of the tower with the hole in the top of the
cabinet and insert and twist the tower until it locks into place (about ¼ a turn)
4. Align the faucet handle to be parallel with the beer tower with the spigot facing
downward and screw in the faucet counter-clockwise with your hands
5. Set the plastic drip pan into place below the faucet.
Installing the Guardrail
1. Snap the guardrail into the top of the cabinet’s guardrail pilot holes.
5
Connecting the CO2 Cylinder to the CO2 Regulator and
Installing the CO2 Cylinder Holder
Warning
CO2 can be dangerous! CO2 cylinders contain high-pressured gas, which can be
hazardous if handled improperly. Please handle with care.
Note
This section describes general CO2 and keg installation. For specific
instructions, see the instructions included in the accessory box.
1. To install the CO2 gas line tube to the regulator, attach one end of the CO2tube,
to the hose barb connection on the CO2 regulator. Secure the tube by using one of
the two self-locking red plastic snap-on clamps. With a pair of pliers or a clamp
crimper, snap the red clamp on tightly. This ensures that there are no leaks.
2. Remove the plug located at the exterior back. Save it for later in case you decide
to convert the unit into an “all refrigerator.” Run the other end of the CO2 tubing
through the open hole through the inside of the cabinet.
3. Insert a washer (if provided in the kit) into the regulator to cylinder attachment
nut. This step is only required if the regulator does not have a gasket.
4. Make sure the CO2 tank is full and that the valve is closed. Now attach the CO2
regulator to the CO2 cylinder by screwing the loose golden regulator nut into the
CO2 cylinder valve and tighten with an adjustable wrench.
5. To mount the CO2 cylinder holder to the cabinet, simply match up the holes on
the holder with the four screws protruding out of the back of the unit, and push
down to lock the holder in place. Position the CO2 cylinder in the holder in a
manner that you would be able to read the numbers on the gauges and have easy
access to the shut-off valve. Note that the CO2 cylinder holder is designed to fit
CO2 cylinders with up to 5 pounds in capacity. Smaller and larger CO2 cylinders
are acceptable for use as well.
Note: your CO2 cylinder is shipped empty. When you purchase your first keg of beer,
have your beer distributor fill the CO2 cylinder. If they are unable to recommend a
company, another option is to look in your phone book under Fire Extinguishers or
Fire and Safety Equipment; companies that refill fire extinguishers are typically
willing to to fill CO2 cylinders. Although price will vary with each market area, the
average cost for filling a 5 Lb CO2 gas cylinder is $14.
6
Installing the Keg Coupler– Tapping the Beer
Your beer dispenser comes with American Sankey Tap. Before purchasing a keg, check
with your beer distributor to make sure that supplied American Sankey Tap can be used.
Many European beers require a different tap. Please contact EdgeStar customer service
online via email at service@edgestar.com or by telephone at 1-866-319-5473 for more
information.
1. To connect the keg coupler to the keg, first, make sure the pull handle on the
Sankey tap is in the “up” (diagonal) position before locking it on to the beer keg.
Insert the keg coupler into the locking neck of the beer keg and turn clockwise
1/4- turn to lock into place. Make sure that the tap has been inserted flush into the
keg.
2. Now the keg coupler is secured to the keg. Attach the remaining open end of the
CO2 tube to the Sankey Tap hose barb connection. Then, secure the tube by using
the remaining self-locking red plastic snap-on-clamp. Secure with pliers or a
clamp crimper to ensure that there are no leaks.
3. Now connect the beer line (from the tower) to the American Sankey tap. When
connecting the beer line, it is very important that a washer be installed between
the nut at the end of the beer line and the Sankey Tap. Remove the blue rubber
protective cap located on top of the Sankey Tap and screw the nut with the rubber
washer on to the top of the keg coupler, hand-tighten firmly. After handtightening the nut, use an adjustable wrench to tighten the nut a bit further.
4. To tap the keg, pull the Black tap handle away from the coupler and push down
until it locks into position. Listen for the “click” of the pull handle when it shifts
into the final downward position. This will open the beer and CO2 gas valves. The
keg is now tapped.
5. Carefully tilt the beer keg and rest the edge on the metal keg floor support on the
bottom of the interior cabinet. Slide the beer keg in slowly, ensuring that it is fully
inside the refrigerator. Close the door.
6. Now make sure the valve on the CO2 regulator is closed (perpendicular to the
nose). Open the valve on the CO2 tank.
7. Check the pressure gauge on the regulator. Turn the screw jutting from the
regulator until the gauge reads 12-14 psi (for most beers).
8. Now open the valve on the regulator and make sure the psi on the gauge is still
12-14 psi.

OPERATING YOUR BEER DISPENSER
Grounding Instructions
Grounding Instructions
•
•
•
•
This appliance’s plug must be grounded. In the event of a malfunction or
breakdown, grounding will reduce the risk of electric shock by providing a path of
least resistance for electrical current.
Plug your appliance into an exclusive, properly installed, grounded wall outlet.
Do not under any circumstances, cut or remove the third (ground) prong from the
power cord. Any questions concerning power and/or grounding should be directed
toward a certified electrician.
This appliance requires a standard 110~120 volt, 60Hz electrical outlet with threeprong ground.
Do not use outlet adaptors if unit. No other appliance should be plugged into the
same outlet. Be sure that the plug is fully inserted into the outlet.
Setting the Correct Pressure for the CO2 Regulator
When dispensing keg draft beer, the goal is to keep the CO2 level prescribed by the
brewer. Any change in the CO2 level will alter the taste, pouring characteristics and
appearance of the beer.
Most breweries in the U.S. recommend a CO2 pressure between 12-14 lbs for Ale and
Lager types of draft beers. This CO2 pressure will maintain the level of carbonation
specified by the brewery.
If you are unsure what the recommended CO2 pressure is for the beer you are dispensing,
simply inquire with the company you are purchasing your kegs from. If they do not
know, they can make a quick call to the beer distributor or brewery to find out this
information for you.
If the draft beer is dispensed with too low of a pressure, the CO2 that is dissolved in the
beer will “break out” of the beer. Initially this will cause the small bubbles of broken out
CO2 to float up the beer hose which will result in foamy beer. And over time the low
pressure will result in flat beer.
If the draft beer is dispensed with too high of a pressure, over time more CO2 will be
absorbed into the beer. Initially, this will not cause any problems, but over time this will
result in over-pressurized foamy beer.
8
Setting the Regulator
EdgeStar’s Draft Beer Dispenser comes with a single gauge CO2 gas regulator that has a
0-60 lb. pressure gauge showing the gas output pressure.
Once the regulator is securely attached to the gas cylinder:
1. Close the shut-off valve on the regulator, and open the valve on the cylinder
completely.
2. Slowly turn the regulator adjustment screw until the desired pressure is shown on
the output gauge.
Note: on most regulators designed for draft beer, turning clockwise will increase
the output pressure, and turning counter-clockwise will decrease the output
pressure.
3. Open the shut-off valve on the regulator to allow gas flow from the regulator to
the keg coupler.
Note: You will hear the keg pressurizing the output needle will drop momentarily
until the pressure has equalized. Then the needle will return to the point you set it
at.
4. The keg coupler (usually the American Sankey Tap) is designed with a pressure
relief valve (PRV). Pull the ring on the PRV briefly to allow gas to vent.
Note: This will permit gas to glow through the regulator and help obtain a more
accurate reading on the output pressure gauge.
5. Re-check the output pressure on the regulator, and if necessary re-adjust using
step #2 until the desired pressure is shown.
Note: It is always wise to follow up any adjustment to the regulator with a brief
pull of the PRV ring to ensure an accurate output reading.
9
Dispensing the Beer and Proper Drawing Technique
Note: Allow the keg to settle and acclimate to refrigeration for 2-4 hours prior to
dispensing beer.
Using the
proper
draw
technique
to dispense
beer should
allow you
to fill a 12
oz glass
leaving

ely ¾”-1”
of foam.
1. Make sure that the beer dispenser is plugged in properly to a
120V, 60Hz, 15Amp grounded outlet.
2. Rinse a “Beer Clean” glass under cold water. (see below for
more information on “Beer Clean”)
3. Place glass beneath the faucet; tilt at a 45˚ angle leaving
approximately ¼” between glass and faucet.
4. Open faucet handle quickly and completely and fill the glass to
2/3 full.
5. Level the Glass and finish topping off by continuing the pour in
the center of the glass.
6. Make sure the handle is fully returned to its previous off position when the draw
is complete.
7. Proper foam should leave a tight, creamy head, and the head on the average glass
should be ¾” to 1” high.
Beer Clean Glasses
We recommend that you reserve a set of glasses specifically to the enjoyment of your
EdgeStar Draft Beer Dispenser. Do not wash beer glasses together with glasses that have
contained milk or any other fatty substances.
Using a glass for anything else may leave residues that are extremely hard to get rid of.
Wash them carefully after each use with very hot water, use detergent rather than soap if
more than water is needed, and then consider cleaning them with baking soda.
Let the glasses air dry in a dish rack. If water droplets cling to the glass or if spots show
while drying, then the glass is not clean. Wash them again.
10
Understanding Beer Temperature
•
Select and maintain the proper temperature inside the refrigerator cabinet. This is
necessary to maintain the flavor freshness of the beer. Adding additional unrefrigerated products, such as meats, vegetables, fish, etc. while attempting to
chill beer will cause a fluctuation in the temperature, resulting in cloudy beer.
•
The recommended temperature for storing and serving chilled beer is between the
high 30s and mid 40s. These temperatures apply whether the beer is a domestic
beer or an imported one. The same holds

enough to keep the carbonation in the beer.
•
On the other hand, having the beer too cold causes the carbonation to stay in the
beer. This results in poured beer appearing hazy or cloudy.
The ideal method for monitoring the liquid temperature (inside the keg) is done by use of
a liquid thermometer. Such thermometers are enclosed in a casing filled with liquid; this
provides a constant accurate reading of the liquid (beer) temperature within the
refrigerator. Contact EdgeStar customer service online via email at
service@edgestar.com or by telephone at 1-866-319-5473 for more information.
11
Understanding the Temperature Control Setting
The temperature control is located inside the unit in the upper left-hand corner. After
turning the unit on, you must wait 24 hours for the unit to cool properly. You may then
adjust the temperature setting based on your needs and preferences.
Automatic Defrosting
It is not usually necessary to defrost the beer dispenser. Ice that has deposited on the
evaporator is automatically defrosted when the compressor cycles off. The defrosted
water collects in the water drip tray located on the top of the compressor in the rear of the
unit and evaporates.
However, if the door is often opened or you are using the unit in a humid area, excessive
ice may build up on the evaporator. In this case, turn off the unit and allow the ice to melt
once your keg is empty. Be careful to soak up the excess water with a towel.
Understanding Normal Operating Sounds
•
Sizzling or popping sounds occur during the automatic defrost cycle.
•
Bubbling or gurgling sounds and slight vibrations are the result of the refrigerant
circulating through the cooling coils.
•
Cracking or popping sounds are caused by the expanding and / or contracting of
the cooling coils during the automatic defrost cycle.
•
Dripping sounds occur as ice melts from the evaporator and flows into the water
collection tray during the automatic defrost cycle.

CONVERTING THE BEER DISPENSER
TO AN ALL-REFRIGERATOR
This dispenser can be converted to an all-refrigerator appliance.
1. Safely disconnect the CO2, keg, and all lines. Make sure the CO2 tank is closed
before unhooking anything from the system. Re-plug the hole in the back of the
cabinet. Remove the keg and all fittings.
2. Remove the beer tower and re-plug the hole in the top of the cabinet.
3. Install the two wire shelves.
4. The conversion is now complete. Store all the removed accessories in a safe
place for future use.
Note: Refer to the CO2 cylinder safety precautions for storage recommendations.
5. Adjust the temperature of the unit as required for food storage.
Note: Allow the beer dispenser to stand in an upright position for 8 hours before
turning on the power.
CLEANING & MAINTAING YOUR DRAFT BEER
DISPENSER
A regular cleaning once every 2 weeks of the faucet, beer hose, and keg coupler is
extremely important when the Draft Beer Dispenser is used frequently. If this is not
performed, the beer will foam. Additionally bacteria, yeast, mold, and beer stone will
build up and quickly degrade the quality of draft beer. A few minutes spent cleaning on a
regular basis will add life to your system, and improve the quality of your draft beer!
