My Kegco ZCK-163 beeps and shows an error code on the display after plugging it in. I turned it off for a couple of days and the same thing happens. It did start up for about 2 minutes with the error code but then shut down. It is only a 20 months old so I am thinking that it is a relay or control board issue?

Thanks for joining the site! There isn’t much out there for their line of equipment, especially on the commercial side. All I could find was this error code chart (attached below) – does your error match any of these?
Apparently the most common error is related to sensors, and a call to them will usually get you the service manual. Hopefully, some of our expert members may be able to chime in and get your issue resolved!

The ZCK’s are not really commercial grade machines. They only have a one year warranty for a reason. Namely the cold plate on the back wall. A evaporator made of a aluminum glued stamping that over a short time of contraction and expansion will develop a non-repairable leak. Kegco is notorious for calling machines as commercial grade for the home brew market.
Regardless, You never said the error code, so this is just a guess. Check the white plastic cover over the wall sensor to see it it has gotten hit with a keg or gas bottle. The other ice sensor is mounted to the cold plate.

It is an E4 error code on the display, most likely a sensor.
You said the Kegco company might provide me with a service manual as all I could find is a parts diagram.
I guess Kegco might have the part to fix it?
Anyway, You are right it is a counterfeit commercial Kegerator.
