This may be helpful to everyone. All you need is the inside dimensions of the freezer you are considering, or anything really, and the diameter of your corny kegs. For the most part you'll either have 8" or 9" round kegs. Select Circles within a Square. Then choose Applications. You enter the side length of your freezer and the diameter of your cornys and it will spit out a number and a diagram. You can also choose circles within a rectangle if you have a large freezer.

A guy is selling a 3 year old kenmore freezer, but didn't provide cubic feet or model number. His ad reads:

Kenmore freezer, mid size- 35" wide/ 21" deep/ 34" high.

Any idea how many kegs this might hold?

Ask about the dimensions of the hump. This is typically the limiting factor for fitting legs into a freezer, unless you build a collar &/or stand.

Does anyone know if putting a piece of wood paneling(1/8" thick), if it would mess with the cooling capability of a freezer? I just bought a 7.2 freezer and was thinking of putting a piece on the front only, but I have noticed that another freezer I have seems to send the heat out through the sides. Do chest freezers use the front as well?

Yes the freezers I'm familiar with release heat from the front. I'm pretty certain that the wood I glued to the front and sides is what killed my last keezer. My new one gets warm on the front and sides while running. I wouldn't put anything that might interfere with it's ability to release heat personally.

Yeah, you are most likely right. I may try it with spacing it away from the front of the freezer .5 to 1" if I can figure an easy way to do that. Maybe I will be able to rig up some very small fans that can for in the space that will turn on with the compressor. I bet there are some small laptop fans that may work.

At least 6 ball locks on the floor. The hump height is the factor. If the hump height is 8" or less, you should be able to get another 2 on the hump without a collar.

I would think those dimensions are exterior dimensions, so there will be less space inside. Probably considerably less.
