I'm sure that would get the drain clear, but I could buy a whole new 'fridge for less than that. I have been at work all day and haven't been able to look for an outlet yet. Lucky for me I still have my old one to use as a cadaver!! I will dissect the old one on Friday and see what I can find.

UPDATE!!!!

The replacement 'fridge has been working great up until a few days ago.I had some ice building up on the back where the coolant runs and thought I should probably unplug it or a day or so and let it thaw out. But I had JUST kegged up a beer and thought it could probably wait for a few days or so. After about 5 days I notice a big puddle in front of the 'fridge so I open the door and notice the big ice block in the back is diminishing so I think "cool!!! defrost is getting rid of the ice BS in the back". Then the next day I notice my beer isn't very cold and the next day I notice the beer isn't really cold at all. Does it sound like I have ruined another small refrigerator or is this something that can be repaired? The fridge does operate, but it doesn't seem to be cooling at all. I have unplugged it for 24 hours and then plugged it back in and it runs, but does not chill.


FUCKIN' HELL!!!
I just want to drink beer...

I have finally given up up all of the wussy-ass dorm refrigerators and bought a chest freezer. A new one, with a warranty. I took the hardware off of the 2nd dead P.O.S. and installed it as well as a temp controller and it's been working great for about 2 weeks now. I'm sure you've all seen them before, but here are a few pics. I will post more when I get a collar installed and the second tower.

I want the CO2 tank outside the freezer and with a collar I will be able to fit 4 Corny kegs inside. I am also looking forward to having something to mount the manifold to.

Of course your modifications likely voided the warranty...
