I have a Leonard refrigerator from the mid to late '40s. IMG_0021.jpg IMG_0022.jpg IMG_0023.jpg IMG_0025.jpg 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. IMG_0027.jpg I also need some help sourcing the replacement control relay to rewire control to the compressor. IMG_0026.jpg Any assistance is greatly appreciated. Photos attached to aid in deciphering my message.

Thank you Rick.

What is the secret to removing the little pass through panel?IMG_0027.jpg

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.
