Important Safety Precautions of CO2
(Carbon Dioxide) Gas
CO2 gas can be dangerous! CO2 cylinders contain high-pressure compressed gas, which can be hazardous
if not handled properly. Make sure you read and understand all the procedures for the CO2 cylinders
before installation.
Always connect the CO2 cylinder to a regulator! Failure to do so may cause an explosion resulting in
possible death or injury when the cylinder valve is opened,
Never connect the CO2 cylinder directly to the product container.
Always follow the correct procedures when changing cylinders.
Never drop or throw a CO2 cylinder.
Always keep CO2 cylinders away from heat. Store extra cylinder at a cool place(preferably lower
than 70° F). Securely fasten with a chain in an upright position when storing.
Always ventilate and leave the area immediately if CO2 leakage has occurred!
There are two safety devices in the pressure system in the form of a valve. One safety feature is on the CO2
bottle. The second is on the regulator.
Never attempt to refill CO2 cylinder yourself. CO2 tanks can be refilled at locations such as welding supply
shops, party stores, fire supply shops, or where kegs are purchased.

use an extension cord, use only a 3-wire extension cord that has a 3-blade grounding plug. And use the cord with
No. 14 AWG minimum size and rated not less than 1875watts.
Assembly Instructions
Read assembly instructions carefully to ensure that you understand all installation instructions before installing the
Beer Dispenser. If after completing the process you are still unsure whether the Beer Dispenser has been properly
installed, we recommend that you contact a qualified installer.
Note: Allow the Beer Dispenser to stand in an upright position for at least 8 hours before plugging in the unit. This is
very important! Once the unit is laid on its side, the refrigeration in the refrigeration system is shifted. The refrigerant
in the refrigeration system needs to stabilize before the unit is turned on.
Installing the Casters
Follow the steps below to install the casters.
Empty the inside of the cabinet completely and lay the Beer Dispenser down on its side.
We recommend that you place a piece of cardboard or cloth underneath the cabinet to
prevent dents or scratches.
Insert the casters into the holes on the bottom
corners of the cabinet. Tighten each caster by
turning the head of the bolts clockwise with a
wrench. (not provided in the kit).
Once all four casters have been tightened, stand
the cabinet in its upright position.
Note: Two of the casters include locking mechanisms to
ensure the unit does not slide on hard floors. These two
locking casters should be fastened at the front end of the
unit, with the unlocked casters fastened on the rear end.
Installing the Beer Tap
Follow the steps below to install the beer tap.
There are notches on the bottom of the draft arm
assembly that line up with grooves inside the
opening on the top of the Beer Dispenser. Align the
draft arm with the opening on the top of the unit,
then place inside and twist until secure. No screws
are necessary, it locks into place simply.
Pay attention to use the thin black gasket for
assembly. (See Illustrations C & D on page 8)

regulator and the regulator to the beer tap.
Installing the Guardrail
Follow these steps below to install the guardrail.
Place the guardrail on top of the cabinet.
Align all support feet of the guardrail with the holes of on the top of the unit.
Installing the CO2 Regulator
and the CO2 Cylinder
Follow these steps to safely install the CO2
regulator and CO2 cylinder. You must read
and understand the following procedures for
the CO2 cylinders before installation.
Gas Line
NOTE: Your CO2 cylinder has DOT (USA
Department of Transportation) approval,
however the cylinder has been shipped
empty to avoid any possible accidents during
transportation. When you purchase the first
keg of beer, you must also have your CO2
cylinder filled at your local supplier. (See
page 2, item 9 for suggested locations within
your community.)
Connect to
CO2 Cylinder
Install the CO2 gas line tube to the regulator
by attaching one end of the tube to the hose
barb connection on the CO2 regulator. (See
Illustration B, on page 6)
Insert the special washer (provided with the kit) into the regulator to cylinder
attachment nut. (See Illustration A, on page 6)
Attach the CO2 regulator to the CO2 cylinder by screwing the regulator nut onto
the cylinder valve and tightening with an adjustable wrench.
Wrap the rubber strap that is attached to the interior of Beer Dispenser unit around
the CO2 bottle to secure the bottle in place (as shown above).
Position the cylinder so that you would be able to read the numbers on the gauges
and have easy access to shut-off valves.
CO2 can be dangerous! CO2 cylinders contain high-pressured gas, which
can be hazardous if handled improperly. They must be handled with care.
Tapping the Beer Keg – Installing Keg Tap
(Single-Valve Type Barrel)
Follow these steps below to tap the beer keg.
Make sure the black pull handle of the tap is in the closed (up) position before installing it on the keg
(Fig. 1 - below). Insert the keg coupler into the locking neck of the beer keg and turn clockwise ¼ to
lock it into position (Fig. 2 - below). This means that it is secured to the keg.
When connecting the beer line, it is very important that the black rubber washer be installed inside
the wing nut before connecting the beer line to the tap ( See Illustration A below). Remove the black
rubber protective cap located on top of tap and screw the Wing nut with the rubber washer. Tighten it
firmly by hand. (Fig.2-below)
Attach the CO2 line end of the tube to the hose connection on the tap. Next, secure the tube by using
the remaining self-locking plastic snap-on clamp to ensure that there are no leaks. Secure the clamp
tightly with pliers (Fig. 3 - below).
Make sure the beer tower faucet is in the closed (handle pointing straight back) position before
connecting the tap to the keg. To secure the tank connection, pull the tapping handle out and push
down until it locks into position. Listen for the “click” of the pull handle when it shifts into the final
downward position (Fig. 4-below).This will open the beer and CO2 gas valves. The keg is now tapped.
Carefully tilt the keg and rest the edge on the keg floor support on the bottom of the interior cabinet.
Slide the beer keg slowly, ensuring that it is properly located (Fig. 5 - below) and carefully close the door.
Your Beer Dispenser comes with a 2.5 lb. CO2 bottle, which should be able to dispense four 15 gallon kegs of

Operating Your Beer Dispenser
Dispensing Beer
Follow the steps below to dispense beer.
Make sure that the Beer Dispenser is plugged in properly to a 120V, 60Hz, 15Amps grounded AC power outlet.
Place the drip tray under the beer faucet to avoid messes from excess beer.
Open the beer faucet by pulling the tap towards you to dispense the beer.
Note: If for any reason the beer does not come out of the tap, please refer to the “Tapping the Beer
Keg - Installing Keg Tap” section.
Increase the pressure if the beer runs too slowly.
Hold the glass steady at a 45° angle. When it is 2/3 full, straighten the glass. Proper
foam should be a tight creamy head and the collar on an average glass should be ¾”
to 1” high, ideally.
Note: It is normal to see condensation form on the faucet. It is caused by the difference of
temperature between the cold beer and the inside of the faucet when beer is flowing through the line.
Cleaning & Maintenance
Flushing the tubes
Detach beer line
Follow the steps below to clean the keg tap and
hoses. (See Illustration the right)
Turn off CO2 completely before attempting to clean.
Remove the hose from the coupler and carefully twist
the dispenser faucet off on the top of the Beer
Ensure that the dispenser handle is in the down
position before flushing the hose. If this is not set
correctly, water cannot flow through. Hold the
open end of the hose under running water for 3-5
minutes, while the beer dispenser faucet drains
into the sink. This will clear any excess beer that
is trapped inside, helping to prevent any bacteria
or mold that could accumulate inside.
Flush hose with water
In order to clean and remove any excess beer that may leak into
the unit space inside the door, remove the black rubber insulation
and wipe with a wet towel as needed.
Storage & Care
Follow the guidelines below to care for your Beer Dispenser when not in use.
Please adjust the temperature control dial to MID or LOW in colder environments because this
unit does not self-defrost and ice may build up inside the unit. The temperature control dial is
located inside the cabinet of the Beer Dispenser.
Always rinse the beer line if you do not intend to use your Beer Dispenser for a period of time.
First, turn off the CO2 and dispense beer until it stops. This will release pressure in the keg so
that the coupler can safely be detached.
To avoid permanent damage to the unit, never use sharp objects inside the Beer Dispenser.
Important Safety Message for Draft Beer Dispensing
Your Beer Dispenser system has two safety devices already provided in the CO2 pressure line.
The coupler for this Beer Dispenser is compatible with the ¼ Pony Keg sized barrel and the ½
Barrel full size (US Kegs). While the Beer Dispenser can hold both the 5 gallon Cornelius Keg and
the 5 gallon D System Keg, should you decide to run either one of these 5 gallon kegs, you
may need to obtain a alternate keg connector.
Safety devices should be installed in the following places:
A. On or directly downstream from the CO2 regulator.
B. On the tapping device.
C. In-line in the pressure system
Note: Locations A and B noted above are preferable. If possible, they should be built into the
CO2 regulator and tapping device so that they cannot be removed or by-passed.
