Default Will Haier HBCN05FVS fit 3 (or 4) corney kegs?

Has anyone seen or used this for a keggerator? I stumbled upon it & looks like it may work.

I "may" fit 2 corney's. I have yet to see a wine fridge that didn't have a huge compressor hump in the back.

It's actually not a wine cooler. That's just how that link described it. I just randomly found & copied that link. here is another link. It fits 150 cans. That seems like a lot!

Bump.
Anyone else have any ideas? I saw these at Sam's (and maybe HomeDepot) and thought it would be good for kegs. I will probably try to measure it out next time I see one. Would be nice to get a picture that is not filled with Coke cans.

Hmmm, since my Kegerator died on Monday (may it rest in peace) I may look at this. I found the manual online and it doesn't look like (in the drawings) that it has a hump.

Dimensions listed are 20.5" W x 21.25" D x 31.37" H.

It's hard to tell by the pics, but I'd bet a dollar to a donut it has a hump at the bottom.
Look at how the cans are layed down on the bottom.
I have a similar unit, from a different mfg.
I can put 2 cornys only.

I don't think it will fit what the normal kegerators does.
Here are the dimensions of what they list for the normal Haeir kegerators.

Width: 23-11/16"
Depth: 23-15/16"
Height: 33-1/4"

The normal Haier kegerators will fit 3 x 5-gallon cornys, and if you are willing to drill a hole to run the CO2 outside, you can actually (uncomfortably) fit a 3-gallon corny on the hump as well. I own a Chinese knock-off of the Haier and modded mine for 3 taps. I was considering 4 in a T-tower but decided against it.

I haven't seen these before, though.

Looking at the picture it has 6 cans going across. A soda can is 2.5" so the inner dimensions are at least 15" wide but most likely not 17.5" (enough for 7 cans). The unit can hold 150 cans. Looks like 5 rows of cans so would be 30 cans per row (6x5). Very possible that it doesn't have a hump.

I take that back. Most likely the top three shelves hold 6x7 and the lower only 1 or 2.
