I'm looking for the inside dimensions (width in particular) for the Sanyo 4912.

I found this Sylvania on sale:

I don't have any kegs yet to size it up, so before I drag it home I'd like to get an idea if it will hold two kegs.

I'm not at home so I can't measure my 4912 at the moment, but perhaps a more important measurement for you would be the dimensions of the kegs themselves:

Assuming you're going to look at it in person in a store, you could cut out a couple circles of cardboard the size of a keg bottom and see if they fit, and make sure it's tall enough for clearance.

I'll try and get a measurement from my 4912 later, if nobody else beats me to it.

I'm on my way to the store now, I'll measure for 18" inside.

Home now, got some measurements from my 4912:
18" wide (measured between the little rails the shelves normally sit on)\
27+" high (from the highest bump in the bottom to the bottom of the thermostat box, it's about 28-29" high otherwise)
12" deep (from the front of the compressor "shelf" in back to the edge of the opening, with the door open - ie - not counting the door insert, which many people remove) and of course it's a couple inches deeper above the compressor shelf.

Thanks dude. The Sylvania is 16.5" wide, which may be a problem. I'm going to have to see what the dimensions of the kegs are if my LHBS has any. I'm hoping for 8", because I'm sure the fridge is deep enough if I remove the panel.

I think Canadian Tire has those on sale right now. I tried to check them out in the store but they only had them in boxes and wouldn't take one out for me. Please post when you figure the sizes!

Edit: I just measured 2 of my kegs (ball lock) side-by-side and they're 17 inches.

Thats' the one I'm looking at. I'm very surprised they wouldn't let you open the box to measure. What's the sense in processing a return if it won't suit your needs and you bring it back? The staff here was very helpful.

LHBS is closed right now, so I'm going to call tomorrow for keg dimensions and grab a couple if there is any. 17" might work....I think I could swing a half inch by chopping off the shelf rests on just one side. That and a little stagger might do it. It's such a nice price, I'd like to make it work. I grabbed a 9l pressure cooker at 40% off for my MLT, so I'm not totally bummed out

If you decide to go with that fridge let me know how it turns out. It seems to come on sale every couple months. You're right it's an excellent price for a nice looking fridge.

I have a Sanyo 4912. It holds 2 kegs across. The 5 lb tank sits between the kegs on the ledge behind them.

I need to rig up a hook to hold it into place to the cold element on the back (inside) wall.

Kegs are 8" across.
