You can try doing the corn startch and alcohol spread across the top and watch where it dries for compressor lines like this:


I have the sanyo in the video and this worked nicely. I had to remove the plastic top part in order to get down to the metal, but the compressor line warmed up starch mixture and it quickly became obvious where not to drill.

And it's spelled mini fridge :P

Yes it has the freezer compartment on top with the cooling lines in it I already moved that but I'm a little nervous about drilling through the top

if there is a cooling freon plate in the fridge that you moved and the tube comes in and out from the back or bottom i would think that there is nothing up top cause it would be a waste of money for the company to put them in. you can feel the top on the inside now that the plate is moved and it should be warm after the plate first starts to get cold

why do you say this? The lines in the body are the lines used to dissipate the heat they run all over the unit usually there is just one on top that goes from one side to the other. On older fridges the coils were either under or behind the unit now they run them in the body.

it depends on the kind of tube. does it seem like metal? if so do not cut that!!!! if it seems like a plastic tube that is used for water draining then u should be ably to cut it but if you can fit everything with it i would just leave it in.
