Anymore information on who the other names/manufacturers are? I have a Sanyo 4912. Would like to have another.
Craig's List if I can't find a new one.
Danby, Haier, Fridgidaier had models similar and I think Kenmore for a while was a Sanyo fridge. I had a hard time finding a new one around that size a few years ago. It seems like most manufacturers stopped making 5 cu.ft. models. The ones that i found that were new, were expensive. Most new ones are 4.5 cu.ft. I found mine on Craigslist. Unfortunately its still in my garage waiting to become a kegerator.
I'll check out beverage factory. Open to any and all suggestions.
If you are not against using Craigslist, I would check there. I see a lot of good(and bad ones) up for sale.
From what I researched a few years ago when I was looking to buy one, Danby, Sanyo, Summit and Beermeister were all good. A lot depended on what kegs you want to use and how many, the types of beer(some were not as good at holding lager temperatures), and where you want to put it, specifically if you plan to install it inside a bar or under the counter somewhere. My friend has a Danby and loves it. He replaced out the cheaper tower for a metal one, but only uses a single tower with a single sixtel so I'm not sure how much room he has. I'd be interested in an update because if I dont get around to converting the one I have soon, I will probably be buying one.
