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

Freezer not making ice


Must start from either a faulty compressor or a gas leak. So put off fridge to cool off then switch on , If there is no cooling in about 2 hours, the compressor or the gas pumping is down provided there is gas in the system. So if the compressor is working warm, please take help to get the compressor pumping or the gas checked so as to confirm. Then estimate and decide.

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 .

Danby Beer Keg dispenser fridge.


Draught (or Draft) beer is almost always un-pasteurized and therefore is more fragile. It should be consumed after being "tapped", and is generally truer to the flavors of the ingredients as pasteurization exposes the beer to heat and changes the flavor profile. Always use brewery approved beer line if you want to have foam free fresh tasting beer. Serving it through a plastic tube from the hardware or discount store or the plain vinyl tubing in your beer tap system you will wind up with a foamy, off tasting beer. Real draught beer is not pasteurized. It must be kept refrigerated between 35F. and 44F. A beer will become wild, turn sour and cloudy in a day or two. Below 44F. a keg of draught beer should last 20-30 days before it loses it's fresh brewery taste and aroma. Craft beers (micro brews) tend to have a shorter shelf life and you should contact the brewery for their recommendations. Why does my beer foam up? The 3 most often causes of beer foaming up are: The temperature of the beer keg The balance of the draught beer system pressures The cleanliness of the draught beer system I would suggest that you clean or replace the beer transport tube...
