Ice forms in the keezer because the sides get considerably colder than the air temp. The warm air + the cold sides = condensation...when the compressor kicks on, the sides get freezing cold, and frost forms. I have also had a line freeze from being up against the side....that's fun.
I would say that you have too short of a hose, and your pressure is too high. Keep bleeding it down to 9 psi...give it 2 days to recover from your 30 psi misfortune....maybe another day beyond that...it'll mellow out sooner or later.
Nope, I set them up myself after getting them from the vendor. They should be set up right but it's possible they're wrong, doubtful, but possible.
I'm still stumped about the deep gurgling though. I can see the long tube being backwards and all but how the beer would get out of the small tube 6" up is beyond me. I'll check it when I get home.
I would also think that the hose being too short could be an issue but keep in mind I've had several kegs on this tap already and its not been an issue in the least. Clearly this one is operator error...not the equipment. I'm just trying to figure out how to back out of the corner I've gotten into.
I'll wait it out...that's a good idea.
