So the last batch that i kegged became a disaster. I know the issue is in the tower somewhere and was hoping some might have a link to a parts diagram.

Cheers,

Dan

Did the top blow off and you have a beer fountain coming out of the tower?

If it's like this I had trouble also.
Put some keg lube on the knob in the front and on the lever under the tap handle, makes it easy to open and close.
