Digital Controller Not Very Smart
by:William (08-04-2016)

Comments:This is a great looking dual faucet kegerator. The unit arrived well packaged and included some great free upgrades. The instructions were not of much help but I didn't have any issues assembling the unit.
The main reason I chose this particular model was that it was digitally controlled and included an internal fan. However the capabilities of Kegco's digital controller are just woeful. I have built my own kegerator before where the digital control I used maintained the temperature within 2 degrees, retained all of my settings after a power outage and gave me a real time read out of the actual internal temperature.
Kegco's digital controller falls short on on those features:
1. The unit will not retain the last temperature and unit settings upon a power outage. It reverts back to 5c even though I had set it to 38F.
2. The fan should run continuously to prevent cold stratification. In this design, the digital controller controls this and it shuts off when the compressor shuts off.
3. The internal temperature swings from my preset of 38F down to 30F (Too much overshoot by the controller or because the fan is off?)
4: The digital display has no capability of displaying the actual kegerator temperature.
My recommendation is to save $90 and buy the kegerator with the manual thermostat and add your own digital control.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
