Default Upside down fridge...will it kill the compressor?

So I can pick up another cheap GE mini fridge (4.4cf i think) to use as a fermentation chamber. I have one I'm going to use for kegging so I was looking at it to see how I could fit a glass carboy. The carboy fits perfectly with room to spare upside down. If I turn the fridge upside down will this harm the compressor? I don't think there is enough slack in the copper compressor lines to invert it so this idea is shot otherwise.

It'll ruin the compressor if you run it upside down. This may work.
