Boy did I mess up!

Post by airbrush » Wed Jan 31, 2018 22:18

So I'm in between batches and decide to clean up my drying fridge. OK, so I get real energetic an decide to drill some holes to route wire s thru the sides, etc. It's a converted wine fridge and I see where the compressor is, and where the freezer plate is mounted to the back wall so the sides ought not to have any freon lines...right?
Drilled the first hole low - no issues as my theory is correct. Second hole resulted in a his-s-s-s-s- you get it, hit a freon line. I'm so angry with myself. Looking for another fridge.

My wife said I did it intentionally because I wanted a larger fridge. Of course, I denied it.

I've done a few hail mary drills and cyts in my days, and have missed the mark a couple of times, so I do know the feeling.

Just call me Lucky! Next door neighbor who is about to move sold me a like-new fridge for $50US. No drilling..........well, maybe not.
