The fridges this thread is referring to looks like this. Freezer on the right temperature controller on the top left. If it does not look like this then its a different fridge. I'm just trying to avoid confusion. This thread is not about different fridges, its about different models and brands that equate to the same fridge

I can keep this mini fridge at 40* with no controller. Attachment 173024Attachment 173025Attachment 173026

The model for the above mini fridge is Igloo 4.6 cu fr474

My fridge is an igloo 4.6 465 but it doesn't look like that. Maybe they changed the design since you bought yours.

FYI, I got the Igloo FR465 from walmart recently (looks exactly like the picture in the first post) and I fit a 6gal better bottle with an air lock without moving the freezer unit. I also fit a 1/4 barrel slim keg, but there isn't enough room for a sanke coupler without moving the freezer, a blow off tube would clear though. Only mods I made was removing the plastic shelves in the door.

Thanks OP, learned a lot from this thread even though I made it into a ferm chamber.

I drilled mine in the same spot last night with no problems. The only coolant lines in this fridge that I can see come up from the bottom to the freezer. The people saying that they hit a coolant line drilling the top must have one of the fridges with a removable freezer and thermostat located on the left of the fridge.

Did you mean thermostat located on the right of the fridge?
Mine has it on the left with the freezer you have to bend Down there's coolant lines in the back and sides and conduit for thermostat wires in the top

Snowtires, I am pretty convinced I converted the same fr465 as you yesterday with the thermostat to the left of the freezer. I am very pleased with how it turned out however I am having temp issues. Near the top of the fridge I am getting about 28 F and at the bottom 20 F. I do not have a fan installed yet but will look to add one soon. Did you have any issues with your igloo when you converted it? Seeing as I bought the fridge used I did not get the user manual with it can you tell which setting on the thermostat is coldest 1 or 7? Attached are some photos!
