Hello Everyone....

I have a Whirlpool refrigerator Model # ET1WTKXKQ00 that I am converting into a Kegerator. The frig is not a side by side. I want to drill a hole in the left side of frig for the tubing. The hole will be about 3/4 of the way down the frig. Does anyone know if there is any thing in the left side that I should be worried about drilling into? I had a friend wreck his frig because he drilled right through a refrigerant line.

Thanks in advance for any info.

Are there coils on the back of the fridge? If not I would not try drilling through it.

why not just play it safe and put the mount through the front door?

I always wondered about coiling some tubing there the air drops in from the freezer to super cool the beer,coming out the tap just a week bit more... but I am a jack and Diet Coke man normally so Ice is my necessity!

No there aren't any coils visible on back of the fridge. It was manufactured in 2001 if that helps.

I have a 6 foot long granite countertop next to the fridge that I mounted a tower to and I'm running the lines for the tap and the carbon dioxide underneath in the cabinet into the fridge.

By the way....I just realized that I spelled fridge wrong. :huh:
