Rare Earth magnets (available from hardware stores, amazon, or inside an old hard drive) - epoxy them to the drip tray, then stick it to the side of the keezer.

I found this little guy on Craigslist for $100 as "inoperable" and I talked the guy down to $75. I had a donor mini fridge at the house, and figured the components alone were worth twice what I paid for the complete unit, so it was a winner for me either way. It originally came with a sanke coupler, the lines were moldy, and the inside smelled like old, moldy beer. After another $35 at the LHBS for ball lock connectors, lines, fittings, and a crimper I headed home. Also, it turned out the the Co2 thank was full...added bonus!

I got home, sprayed it down, cleaned it, and attached the new hardware. I then checked the relay and the bi-metal disc had come loose; once I fixed that and plugged her in, she started cooling and has been going strong since Saturday. I kegged my first beer on Sunday, and am eagerly awaiting my first tapped homebrew!

How do you guys using chest freezers solve condensation issues?

A computer fan circulating air helps reduce it, but I have found that during warmer weather it will not completely eliminate it.

That's a topic for another thread, but most of us use PC fans coupled with a desiccant system like an Eva Dry

Default My Near Completion Kegerator

Hi, just thought I would post some pics up of my almost completed Kegerator.
Used a Double door Westinghouse Fridge Freezer. Control the freezer side with a Temperature controller to prevent the freezer from dropping to -18 and just maintain a constant 3-4C
Removed the old Ice/Drink dispenser that was in the door and replaced it with a custom unit that I made from Acrylic (perspex)
2 Taps each with a IR sensor to detect a glass and turn on the LED Down light jsut above each Tap.
Installed the Kegbot system with iButton for user authorization. No beer can be dispensed from the Tap unless you authorize your ibutton, which in-turn activates the Solenoid that allow beer to flow to the taps.
Flow metering is recorded via Kegbot and assigned to each drinker for Stats.
Fridge side of the Kegerator has been pimped with some new LEDS and is used to keep the wife happy for Wine and extra groceries.

Heres a couple of pics

Default "mini bar"

Ok, i just finished this yesterday. I have a 4.3cf sanyo that i used in my college days that has already been converted, but will only refrigerate one corny at the moment. Cool thing is that the out side frame has been designed to suite any mini fridge up to 4.8cf which I'm sure I will do eventually seeing I'm already set up for two Cool air /beer lines run up through the PVC tubing into a an easily removable box to access the shanks and fittings to make cleaning easy. The frame is made of birch and oak stained kona, and finished with 6 coats of polycrilic semi gloss. Can't wait to throw my first batch in!
