Question about Krups C75 Beertender Home Beer-tap System With Heineken Draughtkeg

1 Answer

Krups Beertender VB5028CT (C75) totally dead now.

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 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.

Krups b100 does not get cold enough. How do i fix this

Maybe the beer inside is cold enough to drink, but the green led that indicates it's ok, doesn't light on. So the thermostat may be not operating well or the ambient temperature is too hot. My beertender B100 is operating without turning compressor off. The compressor never stops operating... even when external temperature is under 26 C... but the beer temperature is ok.

It could be the peltier or bad capacitors on the power supply.

If it is caps on power supply they are cheap.

I have a problem with a Krups Beertender model VB5020us. The indicator lights were blinking sporadically and it was not cooling. I removed the back and found that there are two circuit boards. One is...

If the lights are on/blinking, that usually means that the control board is OK, and it's the power supply that is not providing sufficient power for the cooling element to operate. This is a common issue with the Krups VB 5020 series.

Our Krups Beer Tender B95 display started flickering on and off. We turned it off by the switch and back on. It continued flickering. We then unpluggedf it. When we plugged it back in, it totally shut...

Your power supply has gone bad. Mine did the same thing. Sent it to repair place (under warrenty) and it has been 2 months and it is still not back. If you can find another beertender for 100 it is cheaper to buy another OR JUST TRASH IT!!!! Obviously this thing is junk as there and 100's of the same postings of this problem.. fafe it... we got ripped off. Sad because I really liked it... when it worked
