Beer won't run through lines
 
Hey,

New to the forums, new to kegerators..

I have a Danby Energy Star fridge w/ dual tap chrome tower. I tried tapping a 19l cornelius keg and originally had the psi too high (30 psi). I lowered it to 12 psi but no beer would come out. Thinking I over carbonated the beer I vented the keg and set it aside overnight. I tried again this morning at the correct psi and still no beer.

What am I doing wrong?

Any help would be appreciated!

1. Check that your keg really has pressure... just bump the pressure relief to see.

2) Beer line or dip tube is clogged: Check the out post by pushing in (LIGHTLY) on the out poppet.

Do you get any gas discharge from the tap when opened?

Seems silly but do you have the right disconnects on the right tubes? Ie gas on in, liquid on out.

Yes I do. I get flow when I put the psi at 30 but it comes out very foamy.

A few possibilities: the Out dip tube is clogged; or it is improperly located and its opening is jammed against the bottom of the keg and blocking flow; one or the other post poppets aren't fully opening; one or the other quick disconnects aren't fully opening when engaged to its post...

Cheers!
