Mine definitely has lines near the center running across, that's where i feel all the heat. When I'm ready to convert it I'll be sure to document exactly where the lines are.

Most fridges and freezers are made by Frigidaire. Surprised?

Oh, mine is the 465 as well but it's different, I have the freezer compartment and the thermostat is on the top left. Totally different mini fridge. I'm wondering if some of the others on this thread also have the different model? I have seen many writeups on yours with the side thermostat possibly branded under a different name. I will try and do a search.

I noticed that yours seemed different but i figured it to be an older model. Mine had a removable tray instead of an actual freezer compartment. I haven't found many write ups for my fridge so if you find any I'd appreciate a link.

I was fortunate enough to have a neighbor that gave me the kenmore version of this fridge gratis. I have bent down the freezer compartment and flattened it on the back wall. Before I go and order a dual faucet tower I was thinking I should drill my holes in top to make sure I don't brick the fridge AFTER ordering the tower (I don't think I could afford to do this project right now if I had to pay for a replacement fridge too).

I know someone said they drilled 11.25" back from the front edge of the fridge (less the door). Am I correct to assume that's to the center of the hole? Is the hole 3"? Any reason I couldn't or wouldn't want to move it back even further than that? Thanks in advance for any advice, all these hissing fridges have me nervous.

The line that runs in the top seems kind of random, figure out where you want your hole cut a big square out of the plastic from the inside of the fridge and dig out the foam with a screwdriver. If there's a line then try forward more until you get a clear area with no lines, then you are safe to drill your hole. And if you do find a line then please post on here the location to help others.

EDIT: yes 3" hole

Has anyone noticed their fr465 running constantly after putting a keg in it? I put one corny, with a picnic tap, in mine a week ago and I don't think it's stopped ruining since.

It's staying around 39F. I'm wondering if it's a thermostat problem.
