Be *very* careful drilling into a refrigerator! There is a refrigerant line (called the 'yoder loop') that runs around the front perimeter of the fridge cabinet. If you drill into it, it will require expensive repairs to correct (if possible at all).

You *may* get away with drilling holes into the cabinet at least 2" away from the front edge but...

And never attempt to do such a thing on a chest freezer as there are too many refrigerant lines welded inside the cabinet which you may hit.
