Before plugging in the keg cooler, let it stand upright for approximately 2 hours. This will reduce the possibility of a malfunction in the cooling system from handling during transportation.

Clean the interior surface with lukewarm water using a soft cloth.

This appliance is designed to be free standing only, and should not be recessed or built-in.

Place your Beer Dispenser on a floor that is strong enough to support the Beer Dispenser when it is fully loaded.

Allow 3 inches of space between the back and sides of the Beer Dispenser, which allows the proper air circulation to cool the compressor.

Locate the Beer Dispenser away from direct sunlight and sources of heat (stove, heater, radiator, etc.). Direct sunlight may affect the acrylic coating and heat sources may increase electrical consumption. Extreme cold ambient temperatures may also cause the Beer Dispenser not to perform properly. This unit is not designed for outside installation (ie garages, porches, etc.)

Avoid locating the Beer Dispenser in excessive humidity.

Plug the Beer Dispenser into a dedicated, properly installed-grounded wall outlet. Do not under any circumstances cut or remove the third (ground) prong from the power cord. Any questions concerning power and or grounding should be directed toward a certified electrician or an authorized service center.

After plugging the appliance into a wall outlet, allow the unit to cool down for 2-3 hours before placing any contents in the Beer Dispenser compartment.
