Kegerator issue

Buddy of mine, new kegerator, had no problem first two weeks- 10psi, temp. 37 degrees, beer line up to the tower is all clear beer, gets a lot of foam out before clear beer.
Any idea why???

Is cooled air to the tower obstructed? Is the temperature around the kegerator higher lately? If the temperature on the way from keg to glass goes up, it'll cause foaming until the beer coming out cools it. Lastly, is the faucet all the way open when pouring?

Foaming also happens if the path of the beer isn't smooth, like dirt, sharp bends in the line, displaced seals, or other obstructions. If the foaming started after the new faucet was installed, take it apart and check that it doesn't have metal filings or rough edges inside from machining.
