Well, turns out that the 2nd fridge that Walmart shipped me was broken as well. The motor turned on, but after 24 hours it actually got warmer inside, not colder. I returned it for a refund.

I just ordered a Danby DAR125SLDD from Amazon, instead (Prime FTW!).

I just finished (mostly -- still need to move the thermostat / light) my single-tap kegerator last night. I'm not sure what model, but I have a 4.4/4.5 CU Ft mini-fridge which came with removable trays in the door, so I didn't have to cut anything. The only thing I did "wrong" (IMHO) was that I didn't make sure the tap was perfectly parallel to the sides... it's slightly at an angle to the front of the fridge. Oh, well... it'll work. When I eventually upgrade to a dual-tap tower, I'll fix that.

Anyone have any tips for shaving down the sides to fit a second ball lock? I have a single keg in there now, and some conditioning beer but eventually want to put two kegs with a dual tower!

I just used a utility knife with a fresh blade to shave off the shelf brackets on mine. Just be careful to not cut yourself or slice up the walls too bad. I put some aluminum foil-style ducting tape over the brackets "holes" afterward (it's what I had on hand).

Two ball-locks fit will but, as others have probably mentioned, be prepared for it to be tight.

Cheers.

Thank for this, I will be doing that and cutting the tap tower hole soon, any advice or measurements for that so I don't ruin it? haha

This is currently the inside of mine. After I kick this keg, I am going to take everything out and unplug it. I am going to attempt to modify it finally! I plan on moving the freezer part to the very back as far as I can. I will keep one keg on the right side, and then have a 2.5 gallon keg on the left side and hopefully still be able to fit the co2 tank on the back shelf and then make a small removable shelf to sit on top of the 2.5 gallon keg to store bottles. The main thing I am worried about is drilling through the top of the fridge. Anyone have measurements or areas to avoid?
