Refrigerator lock - GE Profile Refigerator ?

I want to install padlock hasps on the top and bottom compartments of a 1996 vintage GE Profile refrigerator. The hasps will be placed in vertical line (lower corner of upper door/upper corner lower door ) so that one long padlock will lock both . Before I start drilling holes for sheet metal screws to attach them , I want to know how the evaporator in this refrigerator is configured so that I don't drill or screw through it (don't want to puncture it ). - Thanks

** 1996 vintage GE Profile refrigerator **

I'm afraid that is not enough information to identify the appliance in question. What would be needed is its exact model number. But it will not be of any help with your question.

** I want to know how the evaporator in this refrigerator is configured so that I don't drill or screw through it **

The "evaporator" is the cooling coil and is usually totally inside the appliance. Unless you drilled right through the back of the refrigerator cabinet right into the freezer compartment, you wouldn't likely hit it.

The "condenser" however may have refrigerant lines welded to the inside of the outer cabinet. At the very least refrigerant lines will following the front perimeter edge of the cabinet, possibly behind the mullion between the doors as well. Where else they may be routed could likely only be discovered by looking at the appliance's actual manufacturing blueprints which most people (including myself) do not have access to.

Some industrial strength adhesive like Liquid Nails or Gorilla Super Glue applied to the surface between the hasp and the fridge should do the trick. Be sure to follow the surface preparation and curing time instructions as from the packaging label on the glue.
