Best fridge EVER for kegerators
4/27/2011

Customer review by Kegerator101

5.0 stars 4/27/2011 by Kegerator101
by Kegerator101

I bought this to convert to a kegerator. I was leary about ordering it online, but couldn't find one anywhere in town. I had it shipped site-to-store and it arrived way earlier than projected (like 4 days earlier). When I unpackaged it I found a small "ding" or dent in the center of the bottom of the door. No big deal, I thought, it can easily be hammered out once I remove the inner door components like many people do for this model. (Haven't done that yet as to date). But I have used it for several kegs now. The adjustable "cold level" knob is from 1-6. I keep mine at 4.5 or else this FRIDGE will FREEZE your entire keg...literally in 12 hours. This is probably the best purchase I have made in a while (minus the door ding, but whatever) Explaination of my Star Ratings: Overall Rating: Hands down 5 stars b/c this thing rocks! Value: I gave a 4 just because it is pricer, but WELL worth it. Meets Expectations: duh Features: This has ALL the features I want or need, but it doesn't have an interior light or a manual defrost (if that's important to you...well I'd hate to brew beer with you if you are that nit picky...lol) Durability: I was very impressed with the quality and feel of the fridge. It felt very rugid and strong. There were no flimsy parts or pieces to worry about. A truley solid structure. Appearance: I love the look of the fridge, especially the stainless steel door, I gave this 4 stars only b/c of the dent in the door d/t shipping. As others have said, I think it is poor manufacturer packaging more than shippers that are causing these dings which many people get. I hope this review will help convince many people that this IS the fridge you need to easily hold your CO2 tank and X2 5 gal. corney kegs! Pictures show the dent in the door compared to a bottle cap. CHEERS!!!

Bad manufacturing leads to damaged units

So I had an old version of the fridge that I used to convert into a kegerator. There are many many plans online for modifying this unit into a kegerator, but I initially built mine before the internet plans were so widely available. It lasted for 10+ years, and while customizing it (kegerator owners will tell you that it's almost as much about the tinkering as it is about the beer!# I nicked a refrigerant line and ruined it. Having all the parts for building a new one I initially purchased a "Scratch/Dent" on ebay. The ebay add had pictures of the damage, crush damage on the lower back corners. The unit I received from ebay also had compressor damage. The compressor made a god-awful racket and the crush damage was far worse then advertised. I sent it back to the ebay store the sold it to me and got a full refund. My next option was to buy a new unit, and in spite of the reviews warning of shipping damage and bad packaging, I did indeed think I'd get "lucky" and get a unit that wasn't damaged. Sure enough the unit I got from Walmart was damaged as well. Not being terribly concerned about some cosmetic damage that I could cover up with strategic placement of the unit, I plugged it in..and it's compressor made the same god-awful noise. So I returned that one as well, and have purchased #waiting for delivery# the new Danby 5.8 kegerator. It was MUCH more expensive, but my wife offered me some Christmas money to offset the difference in cost. In summary, I don't think the fault is Walmart's or the shippers #UPS/Fed Ex#, I think it's the manufacturers. Sanyo needs to do two things: 1) reinforce the cabinet framing around the compressor. The thin sheetmetal walls of the cabinet do not have enough compression strength to withstand the stacking of these units, and they're all getting damaged in the same place..presumably from stacking. Add in the likelihood that these things get put on pallets and pallets stacked on pallets and you have a recipe for multiple damaged units before they even leave the factory. 2) Beef up the shipping packaging. There was MINIMAL and tattered styrofoam protection and the sidewalls/backwalls/front door all had nothing more then a single layer of cardboard as protection. Also the packaging needs some reinforcement along the back side in order to further prevent this crush damage problem. This unit #at this price point# was appealing to a niche group of kegerator builders, and given my recent experience Sanyo has lost not only a customer in me, but many many friends whom I might have steered toward this unit for their own kegerator builds. Given the number of "damaged in shipping" comments in these reviews, I wonder: Is ANYBODY reading these things from the corporate side? Photo below is the damage from the ebay unit, but it's almost identical to the damage #though somewhat more severe because the compressor was knocked off it's mounts# the Walmart unit had:

i bought this refrigerator to rig it as a Homebrew Kegarator it works so far flawlessly and does not have a freezer compartment which is exactly what i needed. Careful if you will be buying this for kegerating purposes there is a line that runs through the middle of the top of the frindge make sure you do not hit that if you are drillng through the top of it.

Bought for Kegerator Conversion

This is the perfect refrigerator for a Kegerator conversion 2 corny kegs and a 5# Co2 bottle will fit perfectly. The only issue I had was with walmarts handling of the unit. The unit I recieved was dented on the side pretty bad, You couldn't see it from the front so I didn't mess with taking it back. Loved everything else! Great Fridge!

This is a very nice refrigerator for the price. Very large and roomy and looks way more expensive than it was. However, Sanyo needs to take more care when packing. The outside packing was great, but the glass shelves were supposed to be stuck to the brackets that hold them with tape?!? One side was stuck, the other side was not. And they were in the refrigerator. So needless to say, one of the shelves got loose and scratched the inside of the fridge. Some of the scratches are so deep that I thought the plastic casing inside the fridge was cracked. These shelves should be wrapped separately and not inside of the fridge itself. Other than that, it's a very nice product.

Nice but can't maintain temperature

We've had this handsome (albeit dented during shipment) little unit for a couple of weeks and simply cannot get it to maintain a 40-42 degree temperature. We slowly bump up the control and it doesn't respond, so we bump it up a teeny bit more and suddenly everything is frozen. Bump it down a bit and it shoots up to 50 degrees. We sell eggs and are using this to free up our regular refrigerator of the space that so many cartons take up, but we can't sell eggs that have frozen (shells split and contents turn cloudy), so this unit is costing us money so far.

Nice Product - But Misleading Reviews (Kegerator)
1/9/2011

Customer review by TheCoachK

4.0 stars 1/9/2011 by TheCoachK
by TheCoachK

Overall, the refrigerator is a very, very nice unit. The space inside is incredible for a minature fridge unit compared to others. My only frustration with the refrigerator were the reviews. At the time of the purchase, I was looking to convert a refrigerator into a Kegerator. The reviews stated that this fridge was big enough to fit a half keg inside and makes a great kegerator. I have to say I was very disappointed when I was unable to fit the half keg into the refrigerator and not be able to close the door...it wasn't even close. I don't even think the fridge would be able to hold a quarter keg, either. Anyway...we kept the refrigerator for other uses, and we are pleased with it that way. It is very spacious otherwise.

So far, this unit works great for its intended purpose of converting to a 2 tap kegerator. My only issue was with shipping to the store as it had 3 dents, but not very noticeable. Others have complained about dents during shipping, so I just kept this one as I'm sure I would get another dented one anyway.

I have had several small refrigerators the latest being a U line. This Sanyo is as good as the U line and much cheaper. Great value.
