Returns and RMA

Series 4 Keg Master Troubleshooting Steps

Before proceeding through the RMA process, please read through the following troubleshooting steps for our Series 4 Keg Master kegerators.

    1. During transport the unit may have been laid on its side, so it is a good idea to leave the unit standing upright for 24 hours before connecting it to power. This will allow the compressor oil to settle and can reduce the noise made by the unit.

    2. The unit radiates heat from the sides so make sure you have at least 10cm of ventilation space either side of the unit. Without adequate ventilation space the unit will not operate correctly.

    3. If you experience any problems, please check the following:
      1. The compressor will turn on about 2 minutes after power is supplied to the unit. You should be able to hear the compressor whirring like a kitchen fridge. If you can hear it running, continue to the next step.

      2. The evaporator plate inside the unit will get cold within seconds once the compressor is running. If the evaporator plate is not cold to the touch, turn the unit off as there is a fault.

      3. If the unit is cooling and the display is showing the temperature, let the unit run and watch for the temperature on the display to go down.

      4. Read through the instruction manual for the unit, perform the calibration if necessary then everything should be working as expected.

    4. If the display reads "EE", the temperature probe inside the unit could be faulty. This can be easily replaced and can be done by the end user.

All other malfunctions need to be reported to Keg King by submitting an RMA and the end user (or other persons) should not attempt to repair or service the unit. The unit will need to be returned to Keg King and if found to be faulty the transport and repair/replacement cost will be covered by Keg King. If found not to be faulty or covered under warranty, the cost of transport and repair of the unit will be charged to the customer.

To submit an RMA you must agree with the following by ticking the "I Agree" checkbox below:
