Default mini fridge?

ok i've been looking for a mini fridge to convertfound the sanyo 4310 to be cheaper than the 4912 but it has a freezer compartment. i already plan on doing my taps through the door instead of a tower and set the mini fridge on a stand next to my bar. the concern is the freezer compartment will this cause the corny keg not to fit and if so is there any way i can remove the freezer and shut off the lines?

Short answer is yes. I don't think I have seen a mini fridge with freezer yet that would fit a corny.
However it is possible with care to move the coils that make up the freezer section. The tubing connecting it to the compressor is thin walled copper so it is easy to kink which makes it task fraught with peril. I would only attempt this on a free unit.

+1. it's not worth the risk assosiated with bending the freezer element out of the way. Spend the extra cash for the 4912, I would say.
