Making Modifications to my Hoover Orchid Collection 480L fridge

I'm about to convert my Hoover Orchid Collection 480L fridge into a kegging system to dispense home brew beer. To do this I need to drill a hole in the door to install a beer tap. The beer tap will be linked to a 8mm diameter hose to the keg, and the keg will sit inside the fridge. I'm OK with this part of the conversion, but I also need to drill a hole in the side of the fridge to accommodate a 8mm diameter gas hose that will be linked from the keg inside the fridge to a carbon dioxide cylinder that will sit outside the fridge. The gas line is the tricky part, I don't want to drill through anything that will damage the fridge. Any advice on where I should drill? Am I likely to hit a cooling line or something electrical if I go ahead with this? All advice would be welcome.....Chucky

If it is a fridge and not a fridge freezer, then there should be no problem in drilling a hole thro the side

How long does a tapped keg of beer last?


This depends on the type of system you are using to tap your keg. A standard tap given to you with a keg will not last very long, just less than a week. If you are using a proper kegorator CO2 system, your beer will last at least two months, if not longer depending on the temperature of your fridge.

How to disable SLS and or height sensor alarm?


These are the types of problems that are caused when modifications are made to a vehicle - especially the newer models where everything is computer-controlled and several computers in the vehicle are networked together and share information with each other. Disabling one will make the next one start sounding the alarm, turning on warning lamps or and/or setting fault codes.

The only recommendation that I have is this:

If you do not want to have to REPAIR an air suspension system, DO NOT BUY a vehicle that is equipped with air suspension.
If you already own a vehicle equipped with air suspension and it breaks, either repair it properly, or trade the vehicle off. You probably cannot even GIVE the vehicle away once modifications are attempted. NOBODY will want it.

Making modifications in an attempt to get around making proper repairs usually CAUSES more problems than it fixes.

The temp guage does not work and when the keg cooler is plugged in it gets down to 20 degrees and freezes the beer. Can this be fixed?


This solution probably costs more than you care to spend on the problem, but you can buy an external temp controller like this one:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0002EAL58
You run the probe into the fridge and plug the fridge into the controller. Then the controller will only turn on the fridge if it gets warmer than the temperature you specify.
You might be able to find it cheaper on ebay, too. I'm using this on a kegerator and can keep my beer at a consistent temp.

I have a Samsung side by side with compressor MK183C-L2U. It is making this horrific noise. Not constantly, just throughout the day. What is causing this and can I fix this myself?


I seen this problem before this fridge is different from others because has tow evaporators Must likely your defrost heating element on the fridge side burn out and is letting ice to build up on till touch the fan blade and start making that sound now The problem is than the defrost heater element is build on the evaporator So the options are discharge the system and emplace the evaporator or what I do is Carefully cut of the old heating element install a generic one and a defrost thermostat and a mechanical defrost timer (8-10 hours) drill a hole to the back of the fridge and run a line from the back and the timer next to the control boar tapping the main power lines Now unless you are familiar whit electrical wiring and the defrost system of older fridges I don?t recommend to tray. Even must technicians would not dare do make modifications to a existing system. If you can?t do some thing like this what a recommend is turn the ?POWER COLD? off and see if gets any better .
