Question about Danby DKC646BLS Full Size / Pony Beer Keg Cooler
I have a Danby DKC 445 BL. After disassembling & cleaning the keg coupler, I thought I reassembled it correctly, but obviously not because all I get now is the sound of air when I pull the handle and foam... I think I have reinstalled the little rubber (what I call the) check valve / back flow valve. I can't find a detailed assembly chart online. Can you help? Many thanks, Marshall (email@example.com)
SOURCE: 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 ..

SOURCE: foamy beer
Keg's are normally pressurized at 13 psi. If you only set yours at 8 psi then you are going to cause problems. You should always start at least the same psi that the keg is set to. If you can talk to the keg company as they all differ some. Common problem is to lower the psi which will cause foam until you reach about 1/2 full or a little less then you should get less foam but your beer will become very flat. Too much pressure is usually better than too little, even with too much pressure you'll see the beer come out fine but will start to foam when hitting the glass/pitcher. Also note that the coupler's that Danby use are very cheap, check the CO2 vale (between CO2 line and coupler) to see if there are any cracks or anything.

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.
