Kegerator is shocking me

Ive got a kegerater its a older unit. only has the 2 prung plug. (no ground) now when i plug it in i get a slight jolt when i touch the tower/metal.
however the prior owner had a ground wire attached to the side then ran it to the socket. in my upstairs my outlet is not grounded so i cant do that. what other options do i have? why is it doing this shocking?

    thank you for your reply
    so if i understand its shocking me becuase the plug is switched around?

    I am unable to add a ground to the water line because of this location.

ANY SCRUE IN THE BACK. AND BE SAVE USE GOOD NON SCHOKING BOOTS.

sounds like the thermostat. can you bypass it (ie connect the two wires together) and make it run all the time? If so, replace the thermostat

Hi,
The Spa is not grounded and bonded properly....find a GOOD electrician that knows how to ground and bond your spa... he will drive ground rods specifically to just ground your unit...and hook them up so that there is no chance of stray voltage...

I bought a Parmak Solar Pak 6. I wanted to use it


when you touch the wire, you are probably wearing shoes, which ground you,
touching it barefoot or kneeling on bare knees should provide a bit more jolt.
take your multi-meter, shove one probe in the ground and touch the wire with the other and you should get a nice reading

I have a 2hp b&s motor that isn't getting spark.I had it sitting under a tarp for a while then my g/f moved it out into the rain. its an older motor off an edger. i got a new spark plug and it didn't...


Ok, change your spark plug lead and plug.If you get a "Shock" that sorta proves that it is all OK, check, ALL wiring, ends on wires, and connections are all clean and shinny. Clean with fine emery or sandpaper, That Black, wire is probably the "Kill" switch, it shorts out the Coil, to earth, and stops the motor. make sure that it's NOT touching earth.

There's a loud humming in my danby kegerator after about 25 minutes of being plugged in. Everything was fine for about 2 months. The model number is DKC645BLS. Any ideas would be welcome.


Maybe a locked up compressor...is it cooling at all?

check your owner manual but it should have a 5 year sealed system warranty..
