    Tech question

    I'm overhauling a Sankey tap that came with my old BM-23... and got it stripped down, but I'm at a loss on how to get the three O-rings in the main body out. I don't want to go digging willy-nilly and rip the suckers, nor do I want to yank something that wasn't meant to come out. Any tips?

    Erm... the hell?

    Ok, kids... I bought a 20# CO2 tank last month. Have a single sixth-keg (commercial) hooked up to it. Only had the rig set up for a week, and already my tank gauge is flatlined. Did a thorough leak-check initially, found nothing... so how in the frak did I blow through that much gas that...

    Ok. 40+ year old Beverage Air BM-23 has been chugging along, no gripes. Finally get gas bottle, a keg... we're in business! Untill a couple of days ago. She started whining and squealing... and I promptly unplugged her for several hours. Plugged back in, it whirred and sounded normal, was...

    BM-23 drainline question

    Ok, kids... OPERATION:KEGERATOR SITREP. Ended up replacing the starter relay and the overload, and she's running like a champ. Nice and cold, holding at 35... right where I want it. HOWEVER... (there's always something, isn't there) she's got an air leak and practically dripping wet with...

    BeverageAir BM23 connundrum

    Hey guys. Working on a 41 year old BM23 I picked up for a song. ($45 at a thrift store!). Needed a freon charge (yeah, I know R-12 hasn't been used in eons. Old habits...), so got her looked at, vented,and recharged with R-401. She cooled like a champ for a couple of months, then the gremlins...

    n00b with a rehab kegerator

    Hey folks. Just got my hands on an old Beverage-Air BM23. By old, I mean brown cabinet, wood rails, R-12 data plate, and a 73Ixxxx serial number. Found her at a thrift store of all places, and snagged her for $42. She fires up, but doesn't cool (a note stating she needed a freon charge was...
