Cooling
After you have installed the keg, the appliance automatically starts to cool
the keg. 
Note:At an ambient temperature of 23°C, chilling an uncooled keg takes 12-
15 hours.
Tip: If you want to pour beer shortly after placing the keg in the appliance,
prechill the keg in upright position in the fridge for a while before you install it.
For more tips, see chapter ‘Troubleshooting’.
	1		Wait until the beer has reached the right drinking temperature.
HD3620:The temperature is shown on the display in green (see
section ‘LCD display’ in this chapter).
HD3610:The temperature light lights up green (see section ‘LED
indicator lights’ in this chapter).
LCD display (HD3620 only)
The display shows the temperature of the beer, the beer level inside
the keg and the freshness of the beer.
Temperature indication
Wait until the temperature of the keg has dropped below 4°C before you
start to pour beer.The ideal drinking temperature is 3°C.
The colour of the temperature displayed tells you if the beer has reached
the right drinking temperature.
Red = the beer temperature is not yet ideal for consumption (above
4°C).The beer head may be too large.
Green = the beer has reached the right temperature (4°C or below)
for consumption.
Level indication
The yellow-orange level indication on the display shows the amount of
beer left in the keg in eight steps.
Note: If you use 20cl glasses, you can pour approx. 30 glasses of beer from
one keg. If you use 33cl glasses, you can pour approx. 18 glasses.
Freshness indication
The freshness indication tells you how long the beer is still fresh.
,

Page: 12
When you place a new keg in the appliance, the freshness
indication shows that the beer in the keg stays fresh for 30 days.The
indication counts down from 30 to 0 days.
Once the keg has been opened, the beer stays fresh for 30 days if the
keg is stored in the appliance
Make sure the appliance is switched on all the time.
When 30 days have passed, the display shows that the keg needs to be
replaced.A dash and an exclamation mark appear on the display.
  
Adapting the freshness indication
If you want to switch off the appliance for a longer period (e.g. a
holiday), store the opened keg in the fridge. Disconnect the tap unit,
rinse the top of the keg, rinse the tube and store the tube with the keg
in the fridge.
Always write down the date and the number of days that the beer inside
the keg is still fresh on the keg (see number of days on the display).
When you reinstall the opened keg, you can set the freshness indicator
to the correct number of days with the – and + buttons.
Tip:To calculate the correct number of days: compare the date with the one
you have written on the keg and subtract the number of days the keg lay in
the fridge from the number you wrote on the keg when you stored it.
Other indications
Besides the beer level and temperature, the display gives the following
information:
Green dash with no level indication visible = the tap unit is not present
on the keg.
Red dash with no level indication visible = no keg is installed.
Red or green dash with flashing yellow-orange background light = the
tap unit and/or tube are not properly placed. Remove the keg and
check if the tap unit and the tube are properly placed. See chapter
‘Preparing for use’, sections ‘Placing the tap unit onto the keg’ and
‘Placing the tube into the tap unit’. If this does not help, try another keg
with a new tube.
LED indicator lights (HD3610 only)
There are three indicator lights on top of the appliance that show the
status of the appliance.
Red indicator light = the appliance is switched on and you have to
install a keg.
Orange indicator light = the appliance is cooling the keg and the keg
has not yet reached the right drinking temperature.
Green indicator light = the beer has reached the right drinking
temperature and is ready to be poured.

How to pour a perfect beer
Follow the instructions below to pour a perfect beer.
Cleaning beer glasses
Always use clean beer glasses when you tap beer.
	1		Clean the glasses carefully in hot water with some washing-up liquid.
	2		Rinse the glasses thoroughly with cold tap water.
In this way you remove all grease and soap residues, which allows you to
pour a beer with a good head.
	3		Hold the glasses upside down to the light to check if they are free of
grease and soap residues.
The glasses are clean when the water runs down the surface evenly,
without revealing any stains.
Tip: If you clean beer glasses in the dishwasher, do not use a rinse agent. Rinse
agent residues may break down the foam head of the beer.
Pouring beer
	1		You get the best results if you pour the beer in a cool, clean and wet
glass!
Note:A cool glass ensures a more stable beer head. It also keeps freshly
poured beer fresh longer and helps to retain its sparkling quality. 
Note: For the best quality draft beer, always clean and rinse used
glasses before you use them again.This prevents foam residues of previously
poured beer from causing too much foam in freshly poured beer.
Note:When you have not poured beer for more than a week, it is
recommended to let beer flow into the glass for 1 second.Then rinse the glass
with cold water before you fill it with fresh beer.
	2		Hold the glass by the bottom or in the middle to make sure it stays
clean.
	3		Open the tap in one quick, smooth movement.
The beer only flows properly into the glass if the tap is completely open.
If the tap is only half open, the beer is forced through the tap, causing it to
foam more strongly.
Let the beer to flow down the inside of the glass.
	4		To vary the size of the beer head, vary the angle at which you hold
the glass under the spout and vary the distance between the glass
and the spout.
The more upright and the closer to the spout you hold the glass, the more
foam you obtain.
Note: Do not let the end of the spout touch the beer glass, the beer or the
beer head.Any beer residues present on the spout affect the forming of the
beer head.

	5		Slowly move the glass to vertical position while you pour your beer.
	6		Fill the glass until the foam almost flows over the rim of the glass.
	7		Close the tap in one smooth movement.
Note:The pump may go on.
	8		Europe (except Germany and the UK): For the best end result,
remove excess foam from the glass by moving a skimmer over the
rim of the glass at an angle of 45° in one smooth movement.
Note: Never leave the skimmer lying on the worktop, but put it in a clean glass
with fresh, cold water or rinse it right away. Only pass the skimmer over the
glass once, as further skimming has a negative effect on the quality of the beer
head.
You now have a perfect draft beer.
Serving a freshly poured beer
	1		Dry the bottom of the glass by passing it over a cloth.
	2		Use a clean beer mat for your guest.
	3		Pick up the glass in the middle and serve the beer on the beer mat.
Make sure the beer brand logo (if present on the glass) faces your
guest.

with water and some washing-up liquid. Rinse them thoroughly with cold
water to remove all grease and soap residues.
Make sure the beer is cold enough to be poured, i.e. when temperature
on the display is green (HD3620) or when the green indicator light goes
on (HD3610).
The keg fell, can I still use it? When it is an unopened keg and it does not have any visual damage, you
can try to use it.When the keg is already open, you cannot use the keg
anymore and have to install a new keg.
The beer tastes bad. Make sure you keep the appliance plugged in all the time. Once the keg
has been opened and is kept cool, the beer stays fresh for 30 days. Check
the expiry date on the keg before you install a new keg.
Always clean the tap unit and place a new tube into it when you install a
new keg.
Make sure you use clean glasses.
Cooling
The temperature on the
display goes up (HD3620).
Make sure that the doors are properly closed (see chapter ‘Preparing for
use’, section ‘Placing the keg into the appliance’).

Problem Solution
During hot days, put the appliance in a cooler place.
Place the appliance in an environment with an ambient temperature
between 3°C and 32°C. Leave at least 10cm free space around the
appliance. Do not expose the appliance to direct sunlight.
Check if the fan outlet at the back of the appliance is free from dust
and/or other particles.
The appliance does not
chill the beer sufficiently
At an ambient temperature of 23°C, chilling the keg takes approximately
12-15 hours.
At higher ambient temperatures, chilling the keg takes longer.When
you use the appliance above 32°C, the beer temperature may rise
above 3°C.When the temperature decreases to below 32°C, the beer
temperature drops to 3°C again.
You can prechill the keg in upright position in the fridge for a while before
you install the keg.
