ID:	39274 I am told that it worked well in a hunting cabin until the last 5 years or so when it was moved. The electrical wire is very brittle and did not survive the last move before I got it. I need some help knowing what is behind the plate that the wire goes through to get to the upper box. Click image for larger version.

    I believe the connection for Cold control, door switch, and light bulb will be made in that area.

    There's no secret. Just whatever it takes to get it out. I'm not sure they were designed to come out.
