well you can do this however there is some modding you have to do. You cant just stick a resavor in there and think its going to work, you need to make some holes in it and pull out the evaporator (thing that gets cold) and that is what you put in your resavor. This should be moved to the extream cooling section.

the evaporator is a coil of copper that makes the fridge cold, I believe its located at the bottom of the fridge. You just have to cut some plastic out and pull out the evap so you can stick it in your res.

does your fridge have a freezer compartment?
