Im building my kegerator and want to mount the co2 tank on the fridge door, has anyone heard of any negative effects with storing the canister on its side?

I don't think you want to do that. That will let liquid CO2 into your regulator. CO2 tanks are designed to work in the upright position unless they have a dip tube or either that the equipment they are supplying is intended for liquid CO2

What he said. Your tank is full of liquid CO2.
For to accuse requires less eloquence, such is man's nature, than to
excuse; and condemnation, than absolution, more resembles justice.

I mounted a 5# tank to the door of my Sanyo 4912 but not on it's side. Used a couple of pieces of plumbing strapping with some auto push in fastners to hold it into the plastic of the door and insulation.
