So there is heat from a coolant line? Yes I know that "coolant line" refers to what it is carrying. I've looked into it and there is a hot line running across the top of that type of fridge, so that method works. For my standard refrigerator that I want to drill a hole in the side... I'm looking for the spots that are cooler.

I may just take everything out, leave it open, turn it onto it's coldest and see where frost/condensation accumulates.

This is my dilema as well.

i have a 4912 also and have my tank outside the fridge. i didnt have to drill any hole just used a little "personal lube" and pulled the line right through the drainhole in the fridge, it worked out great.
