I don't have this model. I building out a mini fridge, and it only holds one 1/6 keg but that is great for me. But I was getting foam big time with the 6' line that came on my tower. I checked out a few sites and got a formula that told me that I needed a 40" line so it tied it and it was almost all foam. Use this spreadsheet http://www.mikesoltys.com/2012/09/17...our-kegerator/
I did and now I get a perfect pint all the time!

I moved the thermostat probe from behind the freezer plate and my temp are now freezing a glass of water on the lowest setting. anyone else have this. I have pushed the probe back to see what happens but worried I broke something.

Dan, I have been running an Igloo 6.0 for over a year. Overall I am happy with it. Regulator was broke from day one, but after buying a Micromatic regulator I have been happy. Anyway, I really want to convert to a 2 tap setup and was interested in some pics, info,& advice on your tower conversion. I was going to buy a 3 inch stainless tower with perlicks but would rather not modify the fridge itself unless there is no other option.

Has anyone successfully converted the Igloo 6.0 kegerator to a dual tap? Please share! I am torn between trying to modify the 2 1/2" tower for a 2nd faucet or bolting on a 3" dual tap tower. THanks for any advice!!

I bet you could do it pretty easily as long as the form factor of the new tap is the same. I do not have this model. I had a Danby before I went the keezer route. I believe the base was 3" as well. The other option is to get one of these. http://www.homebrewing.org/product.a...FSFo7AoduwsARQ
I did not care for this and just went with a 2 tap tower. and made a tower cooler to cut down on foamy pours.

All of the extensions I have found are for 3" towers. I have not found any for a 2 1/2" tower. With the measurements I have taken it looks like it would work to add an elbow shank like this:

It should only protrude into the tower about an inch. Thanks for the info!

Anyone try to fit a tall 1/4 and a 1/6? This is what I'll be using it for or a tall 1/4 and a pin lock corny.

I did the same, you need to go into the temp gauge and move the set screw until it gets to a more reasonable temp. This was a really stupid move on their part putting the probe somewhere that does not give the ambient temp of the fridge. Once I did that the overly cold issue subsided. Just make sure to move the set screw in small increments.

I have had corny kegs in mine on more than one occasion. This unit will hold a 1/2 (15.5 gal) keg so it should hold pretty much anything else.
