I got a flyer in the newspaper yesterday from Future Shop, which I guess would be like Cuircit City in the USA.

Anyway, there selling a basicly No-Name 18 cf Full size Fridge for $349 CAN. Since my little bar fridge will only hold one soda keg, I may just buy a new fridge.

Wifey said it didn't matter to her, which means there's only two options.......She'll either get over it, or she won't.........

My question would be now is, how do you drill through the side walls of the fridge and then attach the spigots as to not let any cold air out? And, not make a mess of it then be screwed if it doesn't work......:O Little nervous about that one......
Here try this.... worked great for me.

I'm too damned cheap to spend that kind of money on a kegerator. Mine is a converted Danby (4.3 cu's I think) that I bought at Target for $99 on sale. Add the tank, tower, taps, etc. I think I have about $250-$300 into it not counting the kegs. It only holds two kegs, though, so if you need more, it wouldn't work for you. There's pics of it in my gallery.

Nice. The Danby is cheaper than the Sanyo many people convert.

Is it this the same model?

Yeah that's it. You need to get quite liberal with a utility knife to get the two kegs in there and do a couple other minor modifications but it wasn't so bad....

Jester, any chance you could look up the brand and model number of your kegerator? I'd like to do 4 or at least 3 Corny kegs but height is a problem!

Thanks!

Its a kenmore brand kegerator... but its really old... I would say easily 12-15 years old... both the kegerators I have are kenmores and both are that old... They were passed down from family members who bought them all at the same time... I think there may even be a few more floating through the family... I will try to get a model number tomorrow when I can roll the kegerator out and read the back of it... I looked and the sears website and it still shows that they are selling kenmore brand "beverage dispensers" but I dont know if its the same size... I can fit 4 corny's (2 converted pin locks and 2 ball locks) and my co2 bottle in there... I'll try to get you some more info tomorrow... good luck..
