I recently purchased the above mentioned vintage refrigerator, with the intentions of restoring it to the best of my abilities. The unit itself is now working (bought it in non working condition), and have one last matter to tend to before i sand and paint it. The light switch usually doesn't work. In order for me to get the light on i have to play with the switch. I have to rotate it to the left, or sometimes the right for it to come on, but as soon as you press the switch it stays off. Id assume its something with the wiring, but have no desire to take the entire fridge apart to get to it. I have applied contact cleaner in the front, and worked it in, then i removed the protective plastic around the interior of the refrigerator. I got behind the insulation and sprayed there as well. No difference. Any ideas on how i can get this possibly working? I have attached images of the switch. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
