Hey bak, what model type of Edgestar keg did you buy?
If it is the KC2000, I might be able to help you out. I have the same kegerator and I have had problems with foam.
If you do have the Edgestar KC2000, or are thinking about buying it, I have some tips for you.
1. The temperature in the kegerator can go well into the 30's in a quick amount of time, however, that is with no keg in the kegerator. If you put a half barrel size keg in the (15.5 gallon) in my kegerator, (not sure about anyone elses, but I would assume anyone with that kegerator model would have the same issues) the temperature will not go any lower than 44 degrees. 44 degrees is rather high for a kegerator temperature, especially if you have a richer style beer. You would really want that temperature around 40 degrees.
2. How to fix this. Typically, if the problem is foam, and if the problem is due to the kegerator being too warm inside, pour a single glass of beer and fill it up. You should get a lot of foam, right? Pour a second beer in another glass immidiately after, if you hav any luck that second glass should have relatively no foam. An acceptable pour would be a glass of beer which has atleast 85% beer in it immidiately after you turn the tap off.
3. The best thing to do is check all your connections, make sure nothing is leaking, and make sure everything is hooked up properly.
Hopefully this helps you, if not then keep posting.
