@ DeNomad author of Danby DAR125SLDD Kegerator Build

Thanks for the instructions and the picutres! I tried the plexi glass/puck board but it was a waste to brittle! I just used silicone caulk to reinforce the rubber door gasket. The other thing i used was a computer fan from my local computer store

Wouldn't of been able to make my beer Kegerator without these directions!

BURP here to you!

@ HopMisfit your most welcome! Glad you found it useful.
@ Chew78 only 2 ball lock pepsi kegs will fit. Coca Cola pin locks or converted ball locks will not fit in this particular fridge.

I'm about to attempt this build. Thanks for the write up and pics!

A question though - is your tower sturdy enough without having reinforced it with some wood or metal for the screws to go into?

I have my tower mounted as far back as possible, and it's very sturdy without any additional support. I've never had an issues.

Glad you found the thread useful! It's pretty sturdy. I threw in some fender washers stacked with regular washers in there to grab some extra surface area to prevent any wobbling. It is wine as long as you don't smack it with a hammer or jam it into anything if you move house.

Here is a picture of the washers:

I think I'll do the same and go with the washers instead of putting in a piece of ply wood. Also - I don't think I'm going to put a fan in mine, but I do plan on using a copper pipe for the tubes to run through. Should I go with a bigger diameter of pipe? My thinking is that the bigger the hole in the top of the fridge and the bigger the pipe, the more cold air will get up in the tower...

Regardless of copper pipe size cold fall is gonna flow downwards, it is more dense than warm air - which is why I put a fan in to blow the cold air up. The main purpose of the copper is to chill the beer lines through conduction, so having those beer lines pressed up against the tubing would be best, so smallest copper pipe you can stuff your beer lines into is the way to go.

You could try a separate copper pipe for each line if you wish but I figure that the pair of lines in one large copper pipe has more surface area in contact.

Yeah - I'm hoping that the conduction from the copper will be enough to keep that portion of the lines relatively cool.
Thanks again
