If its 46 degrees that tells me compressor must be running.So what I would do first is unplug unit,locate compressor condenser coil & fan.Clean condenser coil with brush,air,or coil cleaner.plug back up wait & see.If still not cold enough needs freon.

SOURCE: Danby Beer Keg dispenser fridge.

Draught (or Draft) beer is almost always un-pasteurized and therefore is more fragile. It should be consumed after being "tapped", and is generally truer to the flavors of the ingredients as pasteurization exposes the beer to heat and changes the flavor profile. Always use brewery approved beer line if you want to have foam free fresh tasting beer. Serving it through a plastic tube from the hardware or discount store or the plain vinyl tubing in your beer tap system you will wind up with a foamy, off tasting beer. Real draught beer is not pasteurized. It must be kept refrigerated between 35F. and 44F. A beer will become wild, turn sour and cloudy in a day or two. Below 44F. a keg of draught beer should last 20-30 days before it loses it's fresh brewery taste and aroma. Craft beers (micro brews) tend to have a shorter shelf life and you should contact the brewery for their recommendations. Why does my beer foam up? The 3 most often causes of beer foaming up are: The temperature of the beer keg The balance of the draught beer system pressures The cleanliness of the draught beer system I would suggest that you clean or replace the beer transport tube...

SOURCE: Too much foam

I also have a Danby with the same problem. Apparently it is not the CO2 that is the problem. It is the fact that the temp of the beer in the lines near the faucet is too warm which causes a really frothy foam when poured out under pressure.

There is an extensive string at www.micromatic.com on how to fix the problem. In my opinion people took the fixes to the extreme but if you read the posts from beginning to end you can find two or three simple fixes that you can try that, from what I read, are effective, cheap and easy to complete.

You DO NOT want to go the route of turning down your CO2 pressure because you will be left with a keg of flat beer. Learn from my experience of about 12 gallons of flat Moosehead. I turned my pressure down to about 5PSI which took care of the foam but made the rest of the keg go flat. That solution took care of the head problem permanently, but not in a good way :)

Turn off the co2 for now. Turn it on when you need it, but start at a much lower pressure like 2-4 psi. Adjust pressure as needed.

Hi I just got my EdgeStar Deluxe MINI Kegerator. I set the temp to 38 degrees for 24 hours + and all I get is foam. What am I doing wrong? I've switched back and forth from the manual tap and the


the difference between foam and beer is known as 'change of state', also applies to refrigeration equipment, and is caused when pressures drop too radically. While temperature is a factor, you need to consider your pressurization method and settings more. What are you using to re-pressurize your keg as you dispense brew? CO2? Nitrogen? mix? assuming you dispense from the bottom of the keg (feed tube reaching down near the bottom) lowering the pressure should help reduce the amount of foam when pouring. The thing is, even if you pour a glass full of foam, it will settle over time into beer, and you can add to it until eventually you have a smiling glass of amber joy sparkling at you. Go check some of the articles at ambersuds.com.

Tip

Danby Kegerators


Just some general info on Danby Kegerators. The temp fluctuation is 32-42 degress thru out the day and for 1 hour a day you will get a temp of 46-48 degress during defrost. Unfortunatly there is no way to bring these coolers colder than 32 degrees.These Keg coolers need to be in a temp controled enviroment and if it is enclosed in a cabinet you need to have 3" opening on all sides for air to circulate. Some of the main fault codes are EE = open sensor and LE = which is a communication error between the display board and the main board. The LE error may be in the touch pad which gets moisture in the membrane and causes the pad to quit responded. A lot of the errors are caused by a loose connection. There are 3 screws that hold the table top down, once you get the table top up you'll see the connectors to the boards and sensor, just start removing the connectors, straighten the pins and reinsert them. Also if you ever have an issue with the fan motor, that part is no longer used on these keg coolers, the replacement board assm no longer has a connection area for the fan so the fan can be disconnected if it causes you issues. Another handy trick is to put turtle wax over the touch pad were you select the temperature, then that way the spilled beer will roll off the touch pad instead of ruining it :-)

Too much foam


well you are right the CO2 is causing the foam you may need to replace the regulator on the tank it is most likely bypassing the bellows inside...as a temp fix you can shut down the co2 and bleed off the air then just crack open the tank to (hand) regulate the flow ..

New danby kegerator - tastes like rubber hose


There is a check valve inside the coupler of the danby kegs that cause this problem. The valve is mainly there to prevent beer from back-flowing when changing the keg. Next time you change your keg check for a little black plastic retainer and also a small white plastic ball inside the coupler. Remove those (or just smell it) and you should notice that this is the taste/smell your beer has. I removed mine after this discovery, and there isn't any issues with the taste/smell since. I've heard this is a common issue with the Danby D coupler systems. Also, you won't have any issues with beer backflow when you change the keg, provided the line going to the tap is empty (which usually is if keg is kicked).
