Introduction:
Your Lynx Beverage Kits comes with all of the components necessary to install a keg tap and tray to an outdoor
island or to the Lynx model L24BF or LM24BF outdoor refrigerators.
The Lynx model L24BF and LM24BF outdoor refrigerators have been designed specifically to work with the Beverage
Kits.
The L24BF refrigerator cavity is designed to accommodate two 1/6 kegs, or all single standard keg sizes except a ½
keg or larger (not provided), the CO2 tank and required connections.
The LM24BF refrigerator cavity is designed to accommodate all single standard keg sizes (not provided), the CO 2
tank and required connections.
Please note in some cases you may need to use sealing gum to seal around the opening at the top of the refrigerator.
Warning:
CO2 cylinders contain high pressure gas which can be hazardous if not handled properly. Make sure you READ and
UNDERSTAND the procedures regarding the CO2 cylinders BEFORE installation.

4. Remove regulator from empty cylinder at “E”.
5. Remove dust cap from new cylinder at “E”. Open and close valve “A” quickly to
blow dust from outlet.
6. With cylinder valve “A” in closed position, re-attach regulator to cylinder a “E”.
Use a plastic or fiber CO2 washer to couple regulator to cylinder.
7. Open valve “A” all the way. (This is important because this cylinder valve seals
in two places).
8. Make certain outlet is closed at “C”.
9. Turn regulator adjusting screw “B” in (clockwise) until required pressure is
reached “D”.
10. Open outlet valve “C”.
A CO2 cylinder contains extremely high pressure regardless of size, and therefore
should be handled with care!

WARNING
CO2 GAS CAN BE DANGEROUS
CO2 Regulator
Co2 cylinders contain high pressure gas which can be hazardous if not handled properly. Make sure you
READ and UNDERSTAND the following procedures for CO2 cylinders BEFORE installation.
1.
ALWAYS connect the CO2 cylinder to a regulator. Failure to do so could result in an explosion with possible death or injury
when the cylinder valve is opened.
2. NEVER connect the CO2 cylinder directly to the product container. Doing so will result in an explosion causing possible death
or injury.
3. ALWAYS follow correct procedures when cylinders are changed.
4. ALWAYS secure the cylinder in an upright position with a chain.
5. NEVER drop or throw a CO2 cylinder.
6. ALWA YS keep a CO2 cylinder away from heat. Store extra cylinders in a cool place (preferably 70°F). Securely fasten with a
chain in an upright position when storing. NEVER place cylinders in direct sunlight or where temperature could rise above
130°F.
7. ALWAYS ventilate and leave the area immediately if CO2 gas leakage has occurred. NEVER enter a closed area where leakage
may have occurred without making certain it has been ventilated.
8. ALWAYS check the D.O.T. test date on the cylinder neck before installation. If over five (5) years. do no use, return cylinder to
gas supplier.
9. NEVER connect a product container unless there are two (2) safeties in the pressure system :
(a) one at or on the CO2 regulator
(b) one at or on the product coupler or in the pressure gas line.
10. CO2 Regulators are delicate instruments and should be checked constantly for creeping, sluggishness, damaged gauges, or any
unusual behavior. If any of these symptoms occur discontinue use immediately and return regulator to supplier or manufacturer.
CAUTION: Failure to connect the regulator by properly following these instructions may
result in leaks explosions, asphyxiation and cause serious personal injury or death.

Determine the location of the refrigerator in the island installation. It should be positioned nearly flush to the face surface of
the island for easy access and alignment with the tower. For the refrigerator cavity height and depth, please refer to the
cutout for your individual model (L24BF/LM24BF).
Position the refrigerator in the island opening at the exact position. Open the door and make a reference mark on the
underside of the countertop at the face of the open refrigerator. This surface represents the best guide for locating the hole
in the countertop. Each refrigerator door is custom set at the factory for the best seal. The face of the closed door varies
slightly from unit to unit. DO NOT use the closed door surface as a reference.
Remove the refrigerator from the cabinet while drilling the holes for mounting. Using the diagram at the bottom of this page
as a guide, mark the center of a 2” diameter hole and drill through the countertop for the beverage line.
Locate and drill the 4 mounting holes to secure the keg tower.* Four #12
screws have been provided. A ¼” diameter hole is sufficient for these bolts. If
another securement method (i.e. lead anchors) are used, follow the
manufacturers recommendations.
A flush mount drip tray is provided as an option. Refer to the diagram below
and cut the opening required if this option is to be installed.
Prepare the tower assembly for installation. A 14 inch length of insulating
foam has been provided to install inside the tower base. The installation of
this foam is critical to the proper operation of the beverage tower kit. Failure
to properly insulate the tower base could cause excessive foam and incorrect
temperature control. Insert the foam around the beverage line and insert it
into the beverage tower with about 2” protruding from the base.
Place the large flat rubber gasket over the hole in the countertop.
Feed the beverage tube into the hole in the countertop
Align the gasket and secure the tower to the countertop with the 4 screws
provided. From the underside insert the washers and nuts. Tighten the
screws completely.
Remove the black plastic plug from the top center of the refrigerator. Keep in
a safe place for future use.
Bring the beverage tube out to the front of the opening designed for the
refrigerator. Begin to slide the refrigerator into the opening. Before the
refrigerator is halfway into position, feed the beverage tube through the hole
in the top. Alternately slide the refrigerator back and draw the tube into the
refrigerator to remove any kinks in the hose. When finished, the hose should
align like the illustration on the right.
Add the tap and handle with the wrench provided.
Insert the spill tray into the countertop.
* Before drilling mounting holes,
position the tower on the counter
top to ensure proper tap
alignment. Holes may be drilled
out to ½” to provide additional
adjustment.

elbow to the top outlet of the keg coupler
with a washer between. Attach the clear hose
fitting, with washer, to the elbow. Use a
wrench to tighten the connections.
The colored hose line is installed onto the side
barbed fitting of the keg coupler and the
barbed fitting below the CO2 regulator. Press
the tube onto the fittings and secure with the
two hose clamps. Refer to the instructions
provided with the CO2 tank before attaching
the tank to the regulator.
With the regulator and tank in the OFF position,
attach the regulator securely to the CO2 tank with a
wrench.

CO2Tank Level
Insert the CO2 canister in the rear left shelf inside the refrigerator.
Main Valve
Place the beer keg inside the refrigerator and arrange all hoses such that none are pinched.
Slowly open the main valve on the CO2 canister. Check for leaks.
8-14 PSI
Slowly open the regulator ball valve to pressurize the keg.
Toggle the tap handle on the tower to dispense a small amount of liquid. This will “charge the
system”.
Adjust the T-handle on the regulator to between 8 and 14 PSI. The pressure setting will vary for
Ball Valve
beer type and keg style. Refer to the troubleshooting guide and experimentation to set the pressure
T-Handle
accordingly.
Allow the system to rest for several hours before use. Temperature and pressure are critical to
satisfactory results.
When not in use:
We recommend that the CO2 canister be shutoff and the ball valve closed if the Beverage kit will not be used for an extended
period of time. Keep the CO2 tank inside the refrigerator and all connections intact.
The CO2 tank should be replaced or refilled when the CO2 Tank level indicator falls into the red indicator zone (below 300 PSI).
Check with your beverage provider for local sources of CO2.
Storage:
For seasonal storage of the Beverage Kit we recommend that the CO 2 tank be stored upright in a cool place. The Tower Base may
be disconnected from the keg coupler and removed from the island installation. To help prevent heat loss replace the black plastic
cap into the top of the refrigerator (see page 2 step 1) . The cap may be installed into the top or from the inside if more convenient.
Seal all hoses and connectors in an air tight plastic bag to avoid dirt and insects during storage. We recommend that you obtain a
cleaning kit and purge the fluid lines seasonally. These may be obtained from your beverage supplier or on line.
