The worst thing happened the other day, went to the keg fridge, and it had no power.
I switched off the fridge and tested the socket, all ok. Then I had a look at the junction plate, and found that the main red wire had corroded and fallen off. I then tried to take off the plate, and all the other wires had corroded and the whole thing fell apart. (late 70's fridge).
The fridge is great when working, and I have just replaced the seal, so don't want to get rid of it.
Any sparkies know how to re-connect the power/thermostat/motor?

simple enough, active (brown) wire goes to thermostat, from there to the box on side of compressor where there will be a relay, then the blue neutral wire will go to the common terminal of the compressor. also the light and door heater will be in parallel with the compressor.

a pretty generic description but they are simple machines.

Cheers,
TIMMY
