Mine in down in the basement, but I haven't noticed it being very loud when around it.

Looking to install the tower and I am noticing that my Danby is setup a little different than others I've seen online.

It seems that the thermostat and light electrical lines used to run straight across to the back of the unit like this:



The one I bought this weekend looks like this:



It now looks like the electrical lines crossover the area where the hole for the tower will be drilled.

Has anyone else run into this?

Don

Just got one myself and is sitting in the box at home ready to start on this weekend. Will check tonight to see if that is the case on all the new ones.

Looks like it's going to be OK. I just gave the wire a bit of a tug and moved it over.

Mine was purchased recently, and didn't have the wire crossed over. Good thing yanking on the cord worked for you.

Also, its a little loud. But I keep the temp set low, so like you pointed out, its only on for a few minutes at a time. And even though its right next to the couch, between the furnace vent, loud girlfriend, whining dog, and TV, I don't notice it.

My conversion is coming along fine w/ the 'new' model issues (tab for thermo assembly in middle of back, moulded in door gasket, hole cutout in top w/o hitting anything).

Wondering what size holes folks may have drilled for using the default bolts coming from a beverage factory draft tower kit? I think I need to go up to 1/4" so they'll thread through, but concerned if I do that I'll def need a support through the bottom...

BTW it is kinda loud, but I'm putting it right outside my garage door so no big deal.

Cheers!

Does your model have supports for the shelves that plug into brackets along the back or does it use molded supports on the sides of the fridge? I bought the one from Costco and it has the molded supports which I had to cut out in order to fit two corny kegs.

I posted some pics here: Danby DAR044

I haven't picked out my tower yet so I'm just using picnic taps for now.

I used a 1/4" drill bit, they fit though without an issue. I didn't bother with a support on the inside, it holds just fine.
