I've got two minifridges that I don't need, and wanted to convert 1 or both to kegerators. I've already got a 2 tap ball-lock setup with a 5lb CO2 tank, but had a question about the actual conversion.
On one fridge, the freezer compartment is easily removed with a single screw, and the coolant lines run through the top of the fridge. I'm almost positive I wouldn't have to remove the door shelves for this one to work. The second one has the more traditional freezer portion where I'd have to thaw it out and *carefully* bend the freezer bottom down, as the coolant lines run through it. This would leave it flush against the back of the fridge. With this fridge I'm fairly sure (but not positive) that I'd have to remove the shelves from the door.
I had originally thought I'd just set the thermostat as high as it goes then turn it down and fine-tune until I'm sitting around 40, but now I'm worrying that the fridge might not be able to be that high if I expose the freezer section.. Anybody have any experience? I'd like to avoid temperature controllers and all that nonsense if possible.
I may just try it out and see what temperature it holds at, and if it's too low I'll have to invest in something..
