Default Sanyo SR-4431S

I thought I was picking up a used Sanyo 4912 , but instead it turned out to be a SR-4431S. It seems like it will still work as a kegerator, but I'm not sure how to remove the top shelf in the pictures. There seems to be a line attached to the back of it. Let me know what you guys think.

Also, do you think there is a way to move the thermostat to the top?

Thanks

After doing some more research, I realize this portion of the refridge cannot be removed or moved. I have about 25" from the bottom of the fridge to the bottom of the freezer pan.

A corney key is 23" tall and a low profile coupler is 1" tall, which would put me somewhere around ~24" for the setup ... that should give me room to fit in there. Can anyone confirm this, or measure there corny ket w/ their low profile coupler?

Thanks

I have the regular disconnects on mine, and I measured 25 1/4 to the top of the disconnect, and 25 1/2 to the top of the mfl connector. But my corny is almost 25" high... to the top of the handles at least.

Also, why do you say that the shelf cannot be removed? Just because there are coils on the bottom of it? Post some pictures and we'll see if we can help you out.

Well you could either bend the tray up slightly, or bend it down all the way. Bending it up would be easier. If you push on the middle of the tray it should bow and clear the sides. Then just push the whole thing up, bending a slight 'S' in the tube. Be very careful though, because you don't want to break the tube or the tray.

unless I didn't see the picture properly you should be able to slide that tray out. The temperature probe shouldn't be that much of a problem. Is there any way you can pull it down to try and prevent it from getting a false reading? Worst case scenario its around $50-$100 for an external switch to turn on and off the fridge compressor.

The thing with your "shelf" is that it is not just a shelf. That would be the part of the fridge that makes it cold. On the 4912 that piece is mounted on the rear wall of the fridge. I have no way to see in the pictures if this could be removed and moved to the back or not. You would just have to be careful when bending or pulling so that you don't break any of the copper tubing.

So close yet so far. Is it really possible to bend the tubing to 90 degrees without cracking it do you think? If so, that would be very nice for chilling kegs with that tray situated along the back of the fridge. If not, terrible news. Destroyed, unrepairable fridge and a face full of refrigerant.

Is it a problem if the tubing gets kinked but not broken, so that the sealed system is still intact but with no refrigerant circulating in the shelf area?

If it were me. I would return the fridge if possible because if you crack that tube then you have a very expensive cabinet.
