CO Regulator Installation
Proper installation of your CO2 regulator
and a thorough understanding of CO2
canisters is essential to the safe use of
this product. Review and follow instruction
for handling CO2 cylinders and this section
in particular to ensure your safety and the
safety of others.
potential explosion that could result
in grave injury or even death, ALWAYS
(Not Included)
DANGER! Carbon dioxide is a potentially dangerous gas. Canisters or cylinders are under
under pressure and proper handling is essential for safety. ALWAYS HANDLE WITH CARE!
Ensure 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!
To install the dual-gauge regulator onto the CO 2 canister:
1. Ensure the white vinyl washer is in place within the CO 2 regulator fitting. This should already
be factory installed ( see Figure A ).
2. Next, loosen the pressure gauge on the regulator by turning the red knob all the way to the
left. You may need to use the Allen wrench provided to loosen the knob (see Figure B).

Co Regulator Installation Continued...
3. The knob may turn by hand, but if needed, use a pair of grips or pliers (see Figure D) to
get it started and then open by hand all they way to the left (see Figure E).
Figure D
Figure E
4. Next, attach the regulator to the CO canister
as shown in Figure F. Hand tighten the
coupler, then use the wrench provided to secure the connection.
Note: When attaching the regulator to the canister, make sure the gauge
remain upright as shown in Figure F. This will ensure the gauges will
be easy to read when the canister is installed in the cabinet, and that
the shut off valves are easily accessible.
Note: When facing the gauges securely installed, note that the
topmost gauge indicates the PSI pressure flowing through the line
to the keg and the left hand gauge indicates
total tank pressure.
Figure F
5. Next, make sure that the CO line
washer is installed on the inside of
the green coupler as shown in Figure G. If the washer is not present ,
remove one of the extra washers that are attached to the wrench and
install as shown.
6. Attach the CO 2line to the regulator as shown in Figure H. At this point
perform the following checks:
Figure G
a. Make sure the red lever on the regulator that leads to CO line2 is in
the OFF position as shown in Figure H. The lever should be
perpendicular to the line.
b. Make sure that the round red pressure knob is opened all the way to
’ that the CO 2 tank’s valve is shut so that no gas is
the left and be sure
Figure H
Securing the CO Cylinder Inside Cabinet
1. Locate the canister strap . Loop the strap onto the back fastener located
on the cabinet interior and place CO cylinder,
regulator and CO
line attached, onto the back shelf.
2. Stretch the strap around the cylinder and hook one end of the strap loop
to the foremost fastener on the cabinet as shown in Figure I. The strap
will fit very snugly.
3. Double check all connections are secure, that the green coupler on the
CO 2 line is tightened and all valves are OFF.

Tapping the Keg
Install keg tap on single barrel type keg
This kegerator comes with a D type or American Sankey keg coupler suitable for tapping all 50 litre
‘Euro Style’ kegs as used by Carlton United Breweries.
This kegerator is capable of holding a CO 2 canister up to 2.7kgs, which
should deliver in excess of 200 litres of beer.
1. Be sure the keg coupler’s black dispenser handle is closed
(pushed up, see Fingure N) . Also, make sure the tower dispenser
(on top of kegerator) handle is closed before proceeding with tap to
keg connection.
Figure N
2. Check the bottom of the cupler to ensure the black washer (pre-installed) are present and secure
in place(Figure O). If the seals are not installed, check the extra washers and insert it to ensure
a snug connection to the coupler/keg.
3.Insert the CO 2 line’s black rubber “Top Hat” washer into the coupler’s side-most connector for the
CO 2 line (there are 2 of these included in your packaging along with the other extra washers...
they are hat shaped and taper to a pointed end with a slit to better regulate gas flow... (see
Figure P & Q). Insert tapered end first into coupler.
Figure O
Figure P
Figure Q
4.Tht topmost connection on the coupler is for the beer line.
5.Fit the keg coupler into the top of the slots of keg neck (Figure R), being careful not to press down
on the coupler handle. Press down on the coupler
(not the handle) and perform a quarter turn clockwise
to lock the coupler and keg together (Figure S).
The keg is now tapped and you are ready to attach
the CO 2 line and beer line to the keg coupler.
Figure R
Figure S
Ensure the handle remains in the up position until all lines are hooked up and you are ready
to dispense beer. Even though the CO2 line is not yet hooked up there may still be a fair
amount of pressure in the keg.
Kegerator Operation
1. To begin using your kegerator, you will need to attach the CO 2 line
and the beer to the keg. After double-checked to ensure the silver
end of the CO 2 line has a washer installed and that the hat-shapped
washer of keg coupler’s CO 2 connection is in place, attach the silver
end of CO 2 line to the CO 2 connection on the keg coupler (Figure T).
Hand tighten securely.
Figure T
2.Connect the beer line to the top of keg coupler, making sure the beer
line coming down from the tower has a washer-gasket installed
(Figure U). If the washer is not already installed, use the extra washer
from the parts bag. Ensure the washer is lying flat within the connector
before install the beer line. Hand tighten securely.
Figure U
3. With both lines connected firmly to the keg coupler, finalize the connection by pulling
the black tap handle outwards (Figure V) then pushing down until it clicks securely
(Figure W). There will be an audible click, signaling the CO 2 and beer connections have
been opened and your keg is tapped.
Figure V
Figure W
4. Next, turn the red lever on the CO 2 regulator so that it is inline and parallel with the CO 2
line (Figure X). Open the CO2 tank valve 1/4 to ½ turn to the left, then engage slowly the
CO 2 by turning the red pressure gauge knob to the right until the regulator’s PSI gauge
reads between 8-15 PSI (Figure Y).
Figure X
Figure Y
NOTE: Too much pressure can cause foaming issues. Usually, it is better to start
at a lower pressure and gradually increase to where you get a good pour with
the most pressure.
5. Locate the white plastic raised bump “keg board” that removed
from the bottom floor of the kegerator during unpacking. Replace
the keg board in the bottom of the kegerator raised bump side
down ( Figure Z).
Figure Z
Kegerator Operation
6. Lift the keg atop the keg board carefully and slide all the way into the
kegerator (Figure AA). HANDLE CAREFULLY. Do not jostle or bang
keg! Make sure the kegerator door can be closed easily.
If you want to plug in your kegerator, be sure you are connecting
safely to proper power supply: a 240V, 10 Amp grounded AC
outlet. The cord should be rated for AT LEAST 1875 Watts.
Figure AA
7. Set the temperature to mid level and allow the keg to chill for 24-48 hours. Decrease
temperature as desired, but DO NOT allow the keg freeze. Freezing the keg will result
in flat beer once thawed.
NOTE: Beer pours best at cooler temperatures. It is best to get the beer as cold
as possible without freezing. A refrigerator thermometer is highly recommended
to monitor your kegerator temperature.
8. Before opening the tower spigot, slide the drip tray beneath the spigot to catch excess
beer, then pull the tower handle towards to your body to open the tap and dispense beer.
To pour a beer with a proper head of foam, tilt the glass at a 45 degree angle until
approximately 2/3 full, then straighten the glass and finish pouring beer.
Beer dispenses best at lower pressures. You will need to find the happy balance between
to much and too little in order to get a good pour without too much foam.
Note: If beer does not dispense, check previous sections on regulator
hookup and tapping the keg. If your beer is running too slow, adjust
the pressure on the regulator judiciously (DO NOT EXCEED 15PSI).
Condensation on the spigot or tap is normal. It may take as much
7-8 glasses of beer to reduce the amount of foam (Figure AB)
dispensed after first tapping a keg.
Figure AB
Storing your Kegerator
1. To prevent ice buildup on the inside of cabinet, set the temperature control to MID or LOW
if you live in a cold area. This unit does not self-defrost. The temperature control is located
inside the kegerator cabinet.
2. If you do not anticipate the use of your kegerator with a tapped keg for a period of two weeks
or longer, rinse the beer line to prevent mold or bacterial buildup, which could cause illness.
3. Never use sharp objects in your kegerator. 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.
Maintenance & Storage
To clean the lines and tap, please follow bellow steps:
1. TURN OFF CO 2 .
2. Wipe the outside of kegerator, clean drip tray and around guardrail. Clean the inside of cabinet
by wiping with a damp cloth. Clean gasket on door to help eliminate trapped, spilled beer which
could produce mold and mildew.
3. Disconnect the beer hose from the tap coupler and twist dispenser faucet carefully off the top of
4. Set the dispenser handle to the open or down position before flushing, then position the faucet
over a sink and hold the beer line under running water for approximately 5 minutes, allowing the
water to flush out the faucet head. This will also help eliminate trapped, spilled beer which could
produce mold and mildew.
5. Reconnect beer line and dispenser faucet when done or leave disconnected if you plan to store
for a long period.
Battery for Display Screen
This keg provides the function of temperature display, simply
remove the display frame by hand (see Figure AC) to load the
