WINE KEG DISPENSER ASSEMBLY
Be sure you have a thorough familiarity with the
assembly and installation process before turning
on your wine keg dispenser.
NOTE: Once casters are assembled, place your
unit in an upright position and allow it to sit for at
least 8-10 hours before plugging into an outlet.
This will allow the refrigerant to settle before
operation.
CASTER ASSEMBLY
1. Remove everything from the
cabinet and lay
the unit on a
clean, dry and
padded surface.
2. Install casters
into holes on
bottom of unit
as shown and
tighten with a wrench. Two of the four casters
provided are equipped with locks to prevent
slippage of the unit on smooth surfaces such
as hardwood floors, linoleum or tile. These
casters should be installed on the front of
the unit.
3. Once all four casters are attached, return the
wine keg dispenser to an upright position and
allow to remain for at least 8-10 hours. (See
Note above.)
GUARDRAIL INSTALLATION
To install the guardrail,
1. Place the guardrail on top of the wine keg
dispenser and line up the feet of the guardrail
with the holes on top of the cabinet.
2. Using the screws provided, secure each foot to
the cabinet.
WINE TAP INSTALLATION
To install the wine tap, first line up the draft arm
notches with the notches in the hole in the top of
the wine keg dispenser. Feed the arm into the
hole, making sure that the notches are aligned
properly. Slide arm down and twist until the arm is
secure. (No screws or fasteners are necessary.)
While not required, we recommend the use of the
black rubber gasket when installing the wine tap.
Using the gasket will provide a more secure
seating for the arm assembly. (See figures A, B
and C in the next column.)

2. Next, insert the black rubber washer that comes with this unit into the
attachment nut on the regulator (as shown in figure E).
3. Connect the regulator to the canister by screwing the attachment nut
onto the canister valve (see Figure F). Tighten with an adjustable
wrench (not provided), but DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN.
4. Secure the canister with the rubber restraining strap (on side of wine
keg dispenser cabinet) as shown in Figure D. Be sure to situate the
canister so that the gauges are easily readable and the shut-off valves
are easily accessible.
See following page for examples of correct connections.
SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS: Ensure that the safety devices for your
pressurized system are installed and remain installed. Once installed,
NEVER remove the rubber washers in the regulator attachment nut to the
canister or in the tap mechanism. NEVER bypass these safety features.
Failure to comply will void your warranty and could result in serious injury or death!

HOW TO TAP A WINE KEG
INSTALLING KEG TAP ON SINGLE BARREL TYPE KEG
This wine dispenser's coupler is compatible only with a single 1/6 barrel keg, although a second
untapped keg can be stored behind the tapped keg to keep it cold.
Your N2 canister has a capacity of 2.5 lbs, which will deliver approximately 60 gallons of wine.
To tap a keg:
1. First be sure that the black dispenser handle of the keg coupler is
closed (pushed up, see Fig. 1 below). Also, make sure the tower
dispenser (on top of wine dispenser) handle is closed before
proceeding with tap-to-keg connection.
2. Insert the keg coupler mechanism into the top of the keg neck
and perform a quarter-turn clockwise to lock the coupler and keg
together (Fig. 2).
3. Before proceeding, make sure that you insert a black rubber
washer into the wing nut connector for the wine line (see page
7, bottom photo) before connecting the line to the tap. Take
off the black protective cap from the tap and screw the wing
nut with the washer to a firm finger-tightness.
4. Insert the end of the N2 line with the silver coupler to the N2
connection on the tap. Make sure the coupler connection is
secure. Next, secure the connection between the wine line
and tap with pliers (Fig. 3 and Photo 2, previous page). Make
sure there are no leaks.
5. To finalize the connection, pull the black tap handle out and push down until it clicks securely.
There will be an audible click, signaling that the N2 and wine connections have been opened
and that your keg is tapped (Fig. 4). Now you may open the regulator valve (top right photo)
and open the valve on the N2 tank itself as well. Set the regulator to read 4-7 psi by turning
the regulator handle (bottom photo, right) clockwise.
6. Carefully tilt the keg onto the lip of the cabinet (using the keg support shown in Fig. 5) and
position slowly into the cabinet body until the door can close. HANDLE CAREFULLY. Do not
jostle or bang keg on N2 canister.
Note: The left regulator gauge indicates total tank pressure.

OPERATION, MAINTENANCE & STORAGE
USING YOUR WINE KEG DISPENSER
1. First be sure that you are connected safely to the proper power supply: a 120V, 60Hz, 15 Amp
grounded AC outlet. The use of an extension cord is not recommended. However if one must
be used, the cord should be rated for AT LEAST 1875 Watts and a No. 14 AWG minimum
size.
2. Slide the drip tray beneath the spigot to catch excess wine, then pull the tower handle toward
you to open the tap and dispense wine. Condensation on the tap or spigot is normal.
NOTE: If wine does not dispense, check previous sections on regulator hookup and tapping
the keg.
3. If your wine is running too slowly, adjust the pressure on the regulator judiciously. Normal
operating pressure is 4-7 psi. DO NOT EXCEED 12 PSI.
TEMPERATURE CONTROL
Inside the unit is a digital thermostat; a minimum/maximum temperature range has been preset at
45 to 68°F. The optimal temperature for storing wine is about 55°F, but you can set your desired
storage temperature. (White wines are generally served at approximately 45°F while reds can be
served from 55 to 65°F.)
The thermostat normally displays the interior temperature of
the unit. If you wish to change the temperature setting of
your wine dispenser, refer to the following instructions. The front
panel of the thermostat is illustrated here:
To see the SET POINT:
Push and immediately release the SET key. The display will show the SET POINT value. Wait 5
seconds and the interior temperature of the wine dispenser will display again.
To change the SET POINT:
Push and hold the SET key for more than 3 seconds to change the set point value. The value of
the set point will be displayed, and the “snowflake” LED will start blinking.
To change the SET value:
Push the UP or DOWN arrow to the desired setting. The new setting will be memorized after 15
seconds, provided no other keys are pushed.
DEFROSTING
Your unit should never require defrosting, but if you notice an ice buildup, try raising the set
temperature slightly. If there is still a problem with ice, disconnect the unit from power and leave
the door open until the ice melts. Wipe up the melt water and be sure the interior is dry, then
reconnect power. If the problem of icing persists, notify the SUMMIT’s Customer Service at
800-932-4267.
STORING YOUR WINE KEG DISPENSER
1. If you do not expect to use your wine dispenser for an extended period of time, rinse the wine
line to prevent mold or bacterial buildup which could cause illness.
2. Never use sharp objects in your wine keg dispenser. If you are storing your machine, be sure
to prevent children from playing in or around the unit.
DANGER! Children can become trapped in an unsecured and unsupervised environment.

CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
To clean the lines and tap, first:
1. TURN OFF THE GAS SUPPLY (N2).
2. Next, wipe the outside of the machine, clean drip
tray and around guardrail. Clean the inside of
the cabinet by wiping with a damp cloth. Clean
gasket on door to help eliminate trapped, spilled
wine which could produce mold and mildew.
3. Disconnect the wine hose from the tap coupler
and twist dispenser faucet carefully off the top of
the wine keg dispenser.
4. Set the dispenser handle to the open or down
position before flushing, then position the faucet
over a sink and hold the wine line under running
water for approximately 5 minutes, allowing the
water to flush out the faucet head. This will also
help eliminate trapped, spilled wine which could
produce mold and mildew.
5. Reconnect wine line and dispenser faucet when
done or leave disconnected if you plan to store
for a long period.
Detach wine line
Flush hose with water
NOTE: At least every three months, or when the wine is changed or replaced, the wine line and
dispensing accessories should be cleaned thoroughly using special wine line cleaners. These
cleaners are available in both alkaline and acidic formulations, and the use of these should be
alternated. Follow instructions on the packaging.
