Upon further investigation, the power cord and the cord going to the freezer are (I presume this is the thermostat cord) are shot. Totally dry rotted and wires showing. I sketched out where these wires run and then removed them. I am going to rewire and see what I got after that. No wires were disconnected though so I hope that something didn't short out and burn up anything.
We'll see after I rewire. It's a cool little fridge. I hope I can get it up and running again.
Hey, if the compressor is shot, how much do you think it'd cost to replace? Can I use something modern and how difficult of a job would this be?
