Question about Krups C75 Beertender Home Beer-tap System With Heineken Draughtkeg
I have a VB5028CT (C75) that went through various stages of dysfunction. For quite some time the display would be red indicating that the keg was empty, even when a new one was put in but everything else seemed to be fine so I left it alone. Then the unit stopped cooling and shortly thereafter (within 2 days) the display went out completely. The fan was still spinning but that's about it, so I unplugged for a few minutes to 'reset' it & plugged back in with no changes. Then I unplugged it over a weekend and when I plugged it back in there seemed to be no power going to it at all. Plugged it in one last time today and was able to intermittently see the fan spinning but not consistently. Any ideas? Other posts with these various stages have suggested replacing the capacitors, the peltier, and the PC board...do I need all 3? Any help in finding part #'s & sources and diagrams would be greatly appreciated!
I had one that appeared totally dead and replaced four capacitors (~$5 to buy) and it's back up and running. If you pull the back of the unit and remove the unit attached to the power cord you'll see a pcb board. Look for any capacitors that look kind of rounded on the top (they should be flat). On mine it was a cluster of one 470 uF and three 1000 uf capacitors. Desolder those and solder in new ones. Mine were rated at 16 volts but I replaced them with 25 volt units for a bit more safety margin.
