    Default Vintage ColdSpot model# 106.C7F-B Electrical Issue

    Model Number: 106.C7F-B
    Brand: Sears Kenmore
    Age: More than 10 years

    I have a Vintage ColdSpot model# 106.C7F-B. Don't know the year, any help with that would be great. I live in the Austin TX area.

    I unplugged it to defrost it(as I have many times before), when I plugged it back in there were sparks and a pop from the plug. The breaker did not trip and there is still power to the outlet.

    I replaced and rewired the power cord on the back of the unit and the fridge is working again. I am looking for the 3 screw porcelain connector box on the back of the fridge.

    My skill level is moderate and my technical language is poor as you can probably tell by my lack of proper parts identification. But I got this far and got it running again. And I can and did take pictures...

    Hi Maria, You won't be able to find that part as the machine is just too old. However it appears to be just a junction box and not a relay. It's sole purpose is a place to connect the two wires of the power cord to the two wires for the machine. If correct, you just need a couple wire nuts.

    Thanks Rick.

    To be clear are you saying to connect #1 & #3 with a wire nut and connect both #2's with another wire nut? And that's it?

    OK, I'm not seeing the same thing as you. How many wires are there? Where on the machine is that box located? Maybe take a few pictures and post them here. Where do those wires go?

    1) 4 wires
    2) located on the back of the fridge
    3) 2 wires go from the new orange cord to screw #1 and #2; the other 2 wires, #2 and #3 are from the black cord going to the gray box next to compressor.

    the thing the wires are connected in is ceramic and had a metal plate covering it. The ceramic is crumbling into unusable pieces.

    Thanks!!

    OK, use a couple wire nuts and connect black to black and white to white.
