I am looking to get a compact refrig to convert to a kegerator. I found one on CL but its 3.6 cf. Is that big enough for a pin lock corny and 5 lb co2 tank? Thanks in advance.

Almost every fridge you come across will be a little different. My rule of thumb is to size for a keg thats 9" wide by 28" tall. The trouble spot on bar fridges is the compressor hump on the lower rear of all the fridges.

Anything smaller then a fullsize bar fridge won't usually work.

As stated, you need the the interior dimensions of the fridge...

and likely it'll be too short due to compressor hump and/or the presence of the 'freezer shelf' which is where teh cooling coils are at...making it a pain to bend outta the way.
