Default New kegerator

I bought this bad boy for $80 off of Craigslist. It is from the 50's. the guy pulled it out of a barn and refinished it. He used for nine years And iit wasn't getting cold any longer. The tap, Co2 bottle and tap is worth what I paid. I dropped the fridge off at repair shop.

I don't know about the model, but I do know that fridges from the 50's will be much more expensive to run. Looks cool though.

I thought the Benefit of deregulation was to allow competition. So far, prices have only gone up.

Might be cheaper in the long run to completly replace the cooling? Parts for the old system might be expensive, and if you can replace with more energy efficient unit? Might be worth talking over with the repair person.

Don't listen to the uninformed cost on these are usually no more then most new fridges. Here is a simple way to see what any device cost to run. Volts x Amps = Watts Watts x Hours (total run time I.E. mine runs 5min, every hour= 2hrs per day) x Days =Total Watts. Now divide that by 1000 will give you Kw. So my kezzer cost per year approx. 115volts x 5amps =575watts x 2 hours =1150 x 365 days per year = 419750 / 1000 = 419.75kw I Pay .08 cents per Kw. 419.75 x .08 = $33.58 per year or $2.80 a month. SORRY FOR THE LONG WINDED RANT JUST HATE IT WE IF IT'S OLDER IT'S NOT EFFICIENT!
