Saw this post and thought I'd add my throw in my penny. By coincidence I installed a tower on this very fridge today. The front 4" doesn't have any coils in it. No need to remove the top if you want the tower in the front.

After hole drilled.


Inside of fridge after tower installation.



The unit seems pretty solid. I didn't see the need for a reinforcement plate on the inside. But, I'll monitor it and add if needed.

Finished product.



First pint poured. Not really a pint, more like 12oz.


Sorry! I think my class is warped.

Still room for a drip tray. Easiest install ever. only took 1 hr from start to finish.

OK here is what mine looks like with the taps through the door. It doesn't look as fancy as some of the other ones I have seen, but it works and was very easy to do.

How did you guys get your temperature probe in to the fridge? I ordered the Johnson digital temperature controller, and now that it's here I'm honestly not sure where to run the probe. While I'm in this thread, here's my kegerator!

Couldn't have done it without you guys, thanks for all of the heavy lifting you did to make it easy for me.

So, I built this kegerator a little over 6 months ago and wanted to say thanks to all who have posted on this topic. In particular, I found the following builds particularly useful:

I was working on the newer model of fridge (LFPH44M4LM) and had a few additional modifications for what they're worth.

COPPER TUBING

Nothing earth shattering here. Tried to get the copper tubes as deep into the fridge as possible to conduct the cold up to the tower. On the other end, tried to get the copper as close to the shanks as I could. The shape of my regulator allowed me to thread the tubes between the dials. Thankfully they hover over the shelf in the back, so there is no interference with the kegs.

I used copper clamps on the tubes to sit them on top of my holes in the top of the fridge. I felt like I might be able to get a bit better conductivity by having a little more surface area sitting directly near/on the cooling lines. Ended up being a great fit.
