I did the dar446bsl which is basically the same as that. 2 Cornies and a 5# tank fit no problem.

It is the same as this danby conversion

does anyone know what precausions I need to take before drilling into the top of the DAR440BL fridge? Or better yet, does anyone know where the freon lines are and if they run across the top?

Will the Danby DAR440BL fit a 1/4 barrel on the hump if I create some type of support? Will it fit along with a 5LB Co2? Thanks in advance!

Things you need to know about this fridge.

make sure you are not hitting the thermo line when you drill from top. its the line that you see on the inside.

never drill a hole on the side,
there is a line that run across the top by the door probably 1 -2 inches from the front.

when you fit 2 corny, you need to deal with the light switch. its simple.

I cut a piece of cutting board to use as support on the inside. through bolted the tower. now i use the cutting board to mount my manifold.
my 20# tank sit outside, I had to drill a hole on the hump

for sure that you need to modify the door. just bunch of screws to change the panel.

Wale - Can you tell me the interior dimensions of your fridge with the door panel removed? How tall/wide is the hump in back? Thanks!

I'm curious about this fridge too.

Will it fit a 6G carboy for cold crashing or lager? On that note will it get cold enough to do this.

I'd like to buy it for cold crashing now and build the kegerator eventually.

thanks

I made this a while back for the guys on BeerAdvocate, but they didn't seem too interested, but looks like people here enjoy the DIY aspect more.

I don't give all the exacting details, but hope it helps or at least entertains someones beer DIY bone. It holds two 5 gallon cornies and a 5 lb CO2 tank with dual primary regulators no problem. I use a bungie cord to keep the CO2 secured.
