I thought that some of you may be interested that a guy named Chris is selling the refrigerator only of a Haier kegerator at varied levels of distress. I purchased the Type "A" which is supposed to have the least amount of distress and there are a few small dents on the side, but the kegerator is overall in great condition... It comes with the tower hole pre-drilled, a shelf, the top rail and casters or feet. Here is the link - http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=120513947862&ssPageNam e=STRK:MEWNX:IT#ht_3424wt_941
I took my older Haier kegerator that I got on CL a few months back and am now converting it into a fermentation chamber. I couldn't pass up the deal on this beauty and so far it is cooling well on Normal. I decided that I wanted a kegerator setup that would allow me to be versatile and do three 5 g cornies when I start kegging and at least one commercial sanke. I got the tower and three gauge secondary from Beverage Factory. Here are some of my notes and pictures on the conversion in case some are interested.
I realized that the three gauge secondary was going to make it a lot tighter in the kegerator and may interfere with a keg if the fridge was full, so came up with an idea of mounting the gauges on top. So, I got three 1/4" x 3" brass nipples and couplings, drilled three 5/8" diameter holes 6" back from the edge of the tower hole.
I applied a small amount of clear silicon between the coupling and top of the kegerator and then screwed the nipple into the regulator.
I really liked the idea of cooling the lines with copper, so went out and got a 1" piece of foam pipe insulation to house the copper in. I sweated some 45's on three 12 1/4" pieces of copper (a little rusty with it nowadays, but at least it doesn't have to hold water) and wrapped them tightly in the insulation with foil tape.
After getting this together and trying to fit it into the hole and tower, I quickly realized that it wouldn't be able to go through the pre-drilled hole, so just trimmed the insulation slightly so that it would be mounted above the hole and strictly in the tower. It took some jostling to get all three copper pipes through the original tower hole and a lot of hand feeding of the beer lines, but managed to get them through. I cut up a few extra strands of the insulation and wrapped them around the last 1" or so of line that was uninsulated.
I drilled four new holes and mounted the 3" tower and the rail.
Finally, last night I completed the co2 hookup. One note is that the unit for sale on ebay does not come with the co2 tank bracket, so unless you have another laying around (I used the one from my other Haier kegerator), you'll have to come up with something. Added a keg of beer and fired the co2 tank up. Everything is seeming to work well. I'm very happy with my new baby and the versatility that will allow me to grow into it! We'll see how happy the woman is about it when she gets back....
