Default Danby Designer 10.2 cu ft Chest Freezer (model DCFM289WDD)

Hi all,

Long-time reader, first-time poster. ;-)

I'm considering the Danby Designer 10.2 cu ft Chest Freezer (model DCFM289WDD) for my keezer build. It's available online only at Home Depot (for $299), so I can't see it for myself and take inside measurements.

If anyone has it, could you possibly provide inside measurements in the style of the following thread (no longer active): Keezer/Freezer/Kegerator Inside Dimension Database?

If you could confirm the outer dimensions at Danby's webpage, that'd be great too. The outer dimensions seem much different from comparably sized models of other brands. The reason I'm considering this model is that the high depth (for this size) may allow two ball-lock kegs to fit in line front-to-back. Of course, the high depth and width may mean that I have to build a collar even for the non-hump area.

In short, detailed inside dimensions (and any advice on this model) would be highly appreciated.

Cheers,
-Alexey

I too am looking at this freezer. It actually seems to be abut the same height as the GE 7.0 which can fit ball locks on the floor with no collar easily. The dimensions on Home Depot's website are rediculous though. I think there is one part that says it only weighs 1.5 lbs! I'm just hoping that it will fit 4 ball locks on the floor with room to spare. It may even fit 5 on the floor if we are lucky!

my guess the internal dimensions would be approximately 41" by 19" with a height of approximatley 27", i have no idea where the hump is located on this freezer. With a collar you should be able to fit 8 with a collar and probably 6 without a collar.

I think I might buy one of these myself, put 2 3-gallons on the hump and I can have an 8 beer setup, 5 taps and a couple of picnics for my special hidden beers.

Those are not the interior dimensions, the interior width cannot be wider than the entire units finished width. Those figures are the carton dimensions

Well, i have a few Home Depot coupons and gift cards coming to me, i just hope there is a way to get the VA discount via the website. Otherwise i'll find somewhere else to get it since it is only available online.

stop into a store and have them order from in-store. I am really tempted to put one of these in a basement closet and run it through the wall to my future bar setup....hopefully 8 kegs total, 5-taps of beer, 3-4 beer, 1 skeeter pee, 1 hard cider, 2 of water dedicated for running a wunderbar....oh to dream!

buy some bag-n-box soda syrup, some pumps for the soda syrup, and a wundergun. Have as many types of soda on tap as you want, just need one line dedicated to carbonated water (I figure 2 3-gallon kegs, that way if one runs dry I can tap into the other pre-carbonated one, plus no need for a collar with the 3-gallon kegs)

Did anyone happen to find out more about the interior of this puppy? It sounds like a great size.
