Hi,
i went to sears today to try and find a good mini fridge to use as a 2 keg kegerator.. Has anyone done this with the kenmore 4.6 cu ft minis with the slide out tray for the freezer. i assume that since it is 4.6 cu ft its plenty big enough for 2 5gal cornys and a tank. but since the tray for the freezer slides out will it be more risky to install a tower? Has anyone done it? Its only $167 at sears.
model # is 94683 for the stainless one.

Thanks, Matt

If you could provide a link to the exact fridge it would help a little more.

I am not sure if that will work or not but for that price you could get a bigger chest freezer and convert it into a kegerator with a temperature controller. Then you would have room to lager if you wanted to too.

ya i thought about that but its more work to have to build a collar and wire a temp controller and all that stuff. and i want something more portable and nice looking to keep inside. idk if i will be moving from my current house to another house, or an apartment in january so portability may be an issue

Understandable. You don't have to build a collar with a keezer by the way. I have a 2 tap tower mounted to the top of mine reinforced by a 2x8 that I sunk in the insulation. I have 2 kegs, a pc fan box/blower, 5lb CO2 tank, and a carboy that I am lagering in there right now. I think it is a 7.0 cu ft. I hear ya on the portability thing but it might be worth looking into, especially for the extra room to expand or lager if you want to.

I just bought that mini fridge. I believe I have already seen someone convert this one. But now I can't find the pics.

Any help would be appreciated. If I do manage to convert mine, I'll post the pics.

Thanks,

I'm considering this same fridge for a conversion, it looks like it will work. Has anyone done it?

I realized it was a Frigidare, but it looks very similar to this model. I have not yet found the time to try and take the top off, since I want to drill in the middle of the kegerator to install a tower.

Looks like its safe if you drill towards the front, but that won't work for me.
