Default two door fridge for ferm chamber

I got a quick question that should have a simple answer. Is their any problem using a two door mini fridge for a fermentation chamber? Two doors as in bottom fridge upper freezer. I was thinking just remove both doors and turn the freezer to a high setting and should be good to go. Should I be fine? (tried the search funtion and didn't see my answer)

There's threads on HBT about using side-by-sides. THe only negative that I can think of is temperature stratification within the chamber. Maintaining different temperatures between the top and bottom could require more ingenuity if that is your desire.
