I'm assuming you keep your most popular on tap in front? I'd imagine there's significant temp increases on a busy night. Then again, the beer wouldn't drop as quickly.

I made that post when i first got the fridge... I was actually planning on making a build thread soon since there seems to be a lack of info on this model.

I used the auberin SYL-2342 (relay output) and simply followed the wiring diagram in the manual for "Cooling and heating with the same controller" (just without the heating).

On the fridge, the brown wire is your lead (attach to 8, with jumper to 9). Blue wire is your negative (attach to 10). Red wire runs back to the compressor (attach to 7).

If you're planning on using the old housing like i did, you will need to dremel away some of the plastic on the inside and the top frame to the width of the PID controler.

Not sure how the pic will come out from my phone, but I got a 50's hotpoint latch handle fridge from my inlaws for free. Tore the guts out of the door (platric panel and fiberglass sheeting) and replaced with a few layers of pink foam board and great stuff around the edges and replaced door gasket with weather stripping. Wish I would've taken before pics, cause it was an ugly critter. Was cream colored originally, but first owner painted it baby poo yellow. Stripped all that off, polished all the chrome as much as possible, repainted with rattle can burgandy everywhere but the door and painted the door with black chalkboard paint so I can write what's on draft above each faucet. I am happy with the result. 3 cornies and 5lb Co2 fit with a few bombers to spare. Pic is immediately after faucet install. SWMBO is awesome and has allowed me to have it in the livingroom. Just have to con someone into making a drip tray for it. Curved door prevents prefab tray being acceptable.
