It looks like the same one that I made into a kegerator.

Dimensions: 28.5"x17.5.  The back motor steps up ~7".  I think your carboy would be a pretty tight fit "that's what she said".  If your strictly using it for lagering carboys I think you might regret not going with a standard fridge or chest freezer down the road.

I am looking to make my first kegerator and looking to find the right refrigerator to do so. What is the model number of the one you have pictured here?
It's actually cheaper now than when I bought mine early 2015.  Shipped free with my prime.  You do have to do the cut outs of the door and shelves to fit two ball lock cornies. I reused the wire racks that came with unit. I cut and zip tied them together to fit into my 5cu. Ft chest freezer so my fermenter is off the floor for air to move around.  My heat pad sits under the racks.  The only issue with the two kegs is it's hard to adjust co2 with the tight fit.

Thank you both very much. Is it possible to get two 1/6 kegs in there, or one 1/6 keg and a corny?

Edit: Also, has anyone attempted to move the compressor back with this fridge to open up more space on the inside?
Can't say, I don't know the measurements of the 1/6 kegs.  As long as they're the same size as ball lock kegs should be fine.

The 1/6 kegs are about 1/4 inch wider than the Cornelius kegs.

1/6 keg: 9 1/4 inch
Cornelius keg: 9 inch
