Do you have tubing on the spigot outside? If not then you are not getting enough siphon force to pull the water up and out of the keg. I have a 2 foot drop on mine and it drains the keg almost dry.
Doh just reread your post there must be some air getting in to stop the siphon. When you added the tubing did you refill the keg?
