Question about Danby DKC645BLS Compact Beverage Cooler

Major leaking with kegerator (DKC645BLS)

I've only had the keg a month, so before I blame the keg, I'd like to find out if I'm doing something wrong. I'm on my second keg, and both of them have significant dripping occuring in the front and back. I open the keg, and there's barely any evidence of where it's coming from. There is a tiny bit of foam near the interior tapper, so I kept thinging that maybe the little washer inside the nut that attaches beer line to tapper wasn't on right. I've tightened it as much as you can by hand, and that only made it worse. My carpet is now destoyred, so I bought a drip tray that is normally used for a laundry machine. Every two days or so, I have to towel up the beer or risk it smelling like delicious yeast in my house. This can't be normal, so if anyone has any ideas, please assist.

    I am having the same exact problem. I did my first cleaning and disconnected the inlet but did not see any washer or oring. That's probably the problem. I don't understand why this f'ing keg cooler didn't come with an oring or washer.

Using a tray is not the answer. Your tapper is not propperly lineing up with your kegs inlet. Try replacing your tappers washer and o ring, if this does not work you need to replace the tapper itself. It is most likely bent and not propperly lineing up.

I have an older beer cooler. the fan costantly runs but the refrigeration part of the beer cooler doesn't keep the keg cold? ? ? It's refrigerate is r12 cooled. Do you think I could just re charge the...

You would need to be a certified refrigeration technician to even buy R-12, since it is a CRC refrigerant. The kegerator probably doesn't have service ports so you would either have to braze a low-side port in or use a piercing valve, and fix wherever the refrigerant leaked out from. Basically, by the time you pay a refrigeration tech to do all this, it isn't worth it and you would be better off buying a new one

Beverage-Air Kegerator Not Staying Cold

It can take a very long time to get a keg of beer down in temperature. The heat transfer from a keg is slow due to the lack of air circulation inside the keg. You should also check your condenser coils, make sure they are clean. Door gasket should also be in good repair. Hope this helps.
