I found this on craigslist awhile back. Came with a 20lb Co2 tank and regulator. This is a purpose built kegerator not a converted unit. It runs but the fan is noisey and doesn't get real cold. Tried searching for info on this unit and found very little. Anyone seen these before? Would love any tips to get this in good working order so I can start kegging instead of bottling.

Awesome! thanks for the info you found. Sadly they are open M-F 8:30-6... Guess I'll try Monday.

Anyone have any general knowledge about kegerator they've seen similar? Wanna try to service as much as possible myself to keep costs as low as possible.

It may just need to be recharged.

On the other hand, once you get it cooling, I would definitely replace the lines. Those look kinda gross. Nice -erator though

Also, that appears to be a 20 oz CO2 bottle, not a 20 lb...

So after finally getting ahold of someone who knew something at Cornelius USA they said it was actually made by Fogel USA and just rebadged as a Cornelius product. They said back around '05 they would sell like 12 a year of these so they stopped selling them. Naturally Fogel USA is already closed for the day. The search goes on...

Gotcha. Looked like some kind of paintball CO2 tank to me. Good luck with your search! :mug:

Finally got ahold of someone @ Fogel. The initial response was we refer people to Cornelius for those... Guy was nice though and took my info so if he found anything he could email it to me. The mystery continues on this kegerator.
