Default kenmore 7.2 keezer???

I received my order from kegconnection today. 3 525PC's with shanks and all the pieces to build my keezer. Now all I need is the freezer. Sears has the Kenmore 7.2 cf freezer on sale till Tuesday for 171.89. Has anyone converted one of these to a keezer, if so how many ball locks will it hold? I have searched the forum and seen every other brand used, no one has used a Kenmore.

I am looking at this one as well. Looks like this one just released for Sears in February. We are going to look at it tomorrow.. let you know what I find out.

Hey, I grew up in Sparta, IL. Love that Mississippi River. Drank my fair share of brews at the bypass. Ha Ha. Parents still live in Perryville.

Cool let me know please. All the Sears around here wont have them for another week but said I could pay now and pick up when it comes in.
I actually grew up in Coulterville. I spent plenty of time in Sparta and have drank my share of beer by the river. The unofficial name of my brewery is "River View Brews".

Went to our Sears yesterday to look at the Kenmore 7.2. Out of stock was told they hae "discontinued" this model. Interesting considering it was just in their sale flyer on Friday????
Anyway, we went the the Frigidaire from Best Buy. It was on sale, picked it up for $187. Wasn't at the store so still don't know how many kegs will fit. Let you know when it arrives. Here's the link if your interested.

I looked at the kenmore a few weeks ago. It is about worth the sale price. The ge is far better quality though. Just the door quality differences is night and day. Maybe it was the floor model, but the kenmore door was very flimsy and the liner was loose and coming out.

I might go measure some freezers this afternoon. I'll report back with what I find. I want to put 3 ball locks and a 20lb co2 tank on the floor, which is close to the size of a corny.

That's funny that they told you the Kenmore was discontinued. I called them yesterday and they told me they would have them in Thursday or Friday.

The stores around here don't seem to stock freezers at all. Nothing I was looking at was actually available in store. I went to Sears, Lowes, Home Depot, Best Buy, and HH Gregg. Lowes had the Holiday 7.0 for $219. HH Gregg had a nice compact looking Haier 7.1 for $188.99, but none in stock, only the floor model. That one is available online and they'll ship it to the store for pickup. I had some paper circles for sizing kegs and that one will easily fit 4 on the floor. It's roomier than the Holiday. I'm reluctant to buy another brand/model online without being able to size it up in person first, so I'll probably go with the Haier.

Hi

Just picked up a Kenmore 7.2 cu ft (model 18702) at Sears. It's not a bad little freezer. The lid is reasonably sturdy and it's not got a big lumpy handle on it like the 8.8 does. Both hold 4 ball lock kegs in the well / off the hump with no collar. The 8.8 is just a bit taller, so it's maybe the better one if you aren't into collars.

Bob
