yes mine is same. tight squeeze but gets in there. if it was only like 1/2 inch wider would be perfect.

It is a tight fit. I don't have to shoulder into it to get the second keg in or anything.

I'm in the field right now. All I can think about is kegging my beer.

So, I just looked at my office fridge and it is the FR464. not sure where my coworkers bought it back in October. It has the coolant lines in the freezer compartment, however.

I hope the one that I ordered a couple days ago from Walmart.com doesn't have the coolant lines. I don't want to have to trust myself with bending coolant lines.

Here's hoping.

The one I ordered for store pickup had the removable freezer. Make sure to check it for damage the packaging is terrible.

So it arrived, and the freezer compartment was removeable! Huzzah!

Only problem is that the unit was damaged in shipping and the door wont stay on. The hinge is bent. I thought about bending it back myself, but SWMBO convinced me to have Walmart send another one.

Has anyone installed a faucet tower on this? I mainly use mine for lagering, but I am considering added a tower.

Has anyone removed the door storage rack? If so how much depth did this add from the compression hump to the door?

I just removed mine last weekend. I'll measure it tonight for you.

It sounds like everyone gets a damaged fridge to done extent. Mine wasn't too bad so i let it go. I don't even think it's from shipping, i think they send them out damaged.
