How do you store the co2 tank outside of the fridge on this model?

I did mine this past month. Followed bumbler's method and mounted in front.

No need to take top off or anything. Works great.

I've finally read through the thread, and am halfway through the conversion (just waiting on the tower to be delivered). I was wondering if anyone had put bulkhead connectors through the back for gas, and if they had any issues doing so. Many posts say that there are no coolant lines on the back and sides, but Homewrecker and Kieran indicate otherwise in their posts. Any thoughts?

Well, mine has stopped cooling. Get to about 45-50 and no cooler. Compressor is running, but the back wall of the freezer ices up and it gets no cooler. Any ideas? I have a johnson419 and a computer fan in use.

Does this model self defrost (or more appropriately, should it)?

IF so, maybe the defrost timer or heating coils are gone

Was a second hand acquisition from the guy who built it

If i unscrew thermostat and simply move it back out of the way will the wires be exposed to the moisture?

Is that ok?

I ran my gas line through where the drain was. Had to pop the drain piece out but it was pretty easy.

jeffsciv, I had considered that, but I have the temp probe for my external thermostat coming in through the drain. I also wanted to put in two bulkhead connectors so I can independently pressurize each keg.
