I joined up after reading through here. I found a lot of great info, but no how to build a Kegerator with the Whirlpool WAR488BSL Fridge. I chose it because there is no freezer, no lines through the top, readily available to me and it looks really nice. I think it's the cousin to one of the danby models.
Anyway so here's the quick how to on building a kegerator from one.
Remove the top panel by removing the screws from the back and front under above the door (door has to be open for this to work.
Loosen the bolts on the top and remove the door.
Undo the screws located under the rubber seal around the perimeter of the door panel
once the door panel is removed use it as a cutting and drilling guide for cutting the replacement plastic panel
Re-assemble the door with the new panel and set asside. It will make working on the rest of the fridge a lot easier.
I went with the copper cooling jackets for the lines going into the tower rather than the blower unit some people have chosen. I created some L shaped copper pipes from a pair of T's and a short length of copper pipe. The extra Copper should act as a better thermal sink, as well as allowing me something to easily fix them in place
Detach the thermostat from the top of the fridge and push to one side. This is only to allow clearance for the drilling of the holes in the top. It will be re installed in it's original location.
Re-install the top plastic panel with only a few screws in the back to keep it in place while you drill.
Drill a 1-1/4" Hole (used a hole saw) on the centerline of the fridge 5-3/4" from the back of the fridge. I suggest measuring and double checking this to make sure you don't hit the cooling element in the back of the fridge.
Using the supplied Gasket as a drill template drill the bolt holes (5/16") I suggest taping the surface you're drilling to prevent scratches to the show surface.
Remove the top cover and re-install the door. Once that is back on, re-attach the top panel completely, using all 6 screws.
Install the Tower. I recommend using fender washers on the bottom of your bolts to spread the load as best as possible. At this point I inserted the copper cooling jackets for my build, turns out they stay jammed up in there without the aid of tape/zip ties/screws/foam.
Re install the thermostat on stock mounting points, and hook up the rest of your system, and enjoy! I'm between batches at the moment but to make sure everything fit here's the pics of the finished product!
Hope this helps anyone else looking to use this fridge as a build.
If the pictures don't work for you check out my flickr page to see them, they should be order of the build: http://www.flickr.com/photos/6419856...7629961450022/
