Hi. I have a Sanyo sr-3660s mini-fridge in the garage that has been sitting there for 10 years. Plan to build my first keg system and make it into a single keg kegerator. It's a bit small, but I THINK it can work. One keg is really all I need.

24" height if I dont re-locate the freezer. 29" if i do, but i'd rather not.

Will a 22" height pin-lock keg have enough space on top if i do not move the freezer? Or is that pushing it? The freezer seems hard to remove and re-locate as there are some hard plastic and aluminum lines that connect to and feed the side of the freeze plate. You can see in this picture.



9" cut out circle (pin-lock diameter) and 7" paint can (place for a Co2 tank) will fit easily.



Made a diagram for this fridge if anyone ever happens to need it.



Thanks

How are u gonna run the lines up if u don't relocate the freezer? I'd relocate it, but that's just my opinion.

Either way I think ud be good with the headspace.

Is that same model? You might be able to pull it off without moving the freezer IF you take the things off the door that stick into the freezer. They'd hit the keg.

There is about a 2-3" gap behind the freezer plate before the back wall. Should be plenty. However, I might just do a door mount tap anyway. Still planning.

Pretty dang close. Same size, but mine might be a couple years newer. I took the door shelves off already, which gave me the 10" space. Otherwise i only had 7".

Thanks for the link! That helps a lot.
