  • Messed up my brand new thermostat! I think.

    Hello all. I'm new to the forum. I have just acquired a Superior (Bev Air) BM23. It's really old, stopped cooling and is in bad shape. My dad gave it to me for free so I figured it's worth putting some cash into it.

    On that note. I have ordered a new compressor fan (current one doesn't work), all new tubing and a new faucet. I also ordered a thermostat, although I'm not sure the old one is bad. Well, the first part to come in was the thermostat. I just went to replace it and when I attempted to stick the thermostat tube into the tube under the assembly. I didn't want to go into the tube. I noticed the new thermostat had a sort of ball on the end and figured that's why it was getting stuck. The old one came to a point. So like a jack *** I just cut off the tip of the new one. I heard a hiss like air or gas was escaping. I suppose that is a bad thing and I just ruined the new one.

    Am I right to assume I screwed up the new thermostat?

    Thanks for any help.

    Sorry. It is hosed.
    Malt is the soul of beer... and yeast gives it life..
    but the kiss of the hop is the vitality of that life!
