2-year review - Nice overall construction / Crappy Danfoss ThermostatReview by Chris / (Posted on 3/10/2017)Rapids was very helpful and product came well packaged. I bought the unit on 4/1/2015 and put it into service on 5/10/2015.
The thermostat (Danfoss 077F1045) failed on 3/6/2016. The failure caused 3 kegs of beer to freeze solid. The frozen beer expanded, broke the seal at the coupling and leaked out the top of the keg. The beer once de-frozen was undrinkable. I lost ~$300 in beer, but the replacement thermostat was sent FOC.
Thermostat worked for almost exactly 1 year, failing yesterday on 3/9/2017. This time 2 kegs of beer frozen, one coupling/keg leaking. I lost 2 more kegs of beer ~$200. I am getting ready ready to file my second warranty claim.
Even though the overall build quality is good I would NEVER buy this UBC kegerator again unless I knew the thermostat was upgraded, hence the 1 star rating. The thermostat is the weak link. It just isn't worth the lost product or hassle. I would have gladly paid more for more dependable frig.
I wish I would have had my review available before I bought the UBC KegMaster.
*** Chris, thank you for bringing this to our attention. We have since contacted the manufacturer UBC, and they have notified us that the thermostat used in current production (2016-Present), though still a Danfoss, has been improved and the wiring is more reliable. Also, since your initial purchase, we have added the Volition line of Beer Dispensers including the VDD24 as another option in this category. Again, we apologize for the inconvenience this has created for you. It's great feedback like this that helps us help our customers. --Rapids Crew ***
