Rewiring Crosley Shelvador

Hi I'm trying to rewire a Crosley Shelvador Electrosaver fridge, it is an old model and not sure how the wiring connects as old wires were cut off and what left is faded. not sure where earth, live and negative go or where they should connect on the fridge. it has a square adaptor that reads "control" on one end and lamp on the other, which connects between the thermostat controller and the light. the cable that is on there is three core, black, green and looks like yellow?? these are two prong connectors.

Try to find the "secret" wiring diagram.  Almost all refrigerators have a hidden paper wiring diagram.  It is usually tucked into a slot under the refrig, behind the front grill, or otherwise on the inside of the lower rear cardboard fan cover, or sometimes inside the back area near the fan.  While you're in there, it's a good practice to clean the coils.

Go to the hunter web site. They will have the proper wiring diagrams on the site. If you cannot do that pick up a basic wiring book at your local electric parts supplier. the place you got the thermostat would be a good start. I do know that menards has some books in the electric area that would be a great help to you. You also will need to be sure that the thermostat is able to handle both air and heat. many only do heat. If this does not help let me know and I will try and get more information to you

You need to first decide what all you want inside as far as electrical features such as lights, outlets, fridge, stove , tv etc.. decide their locations then calculate the load it will pull and design the electrical circuits. Sound tough but it's not that bad

I have a crosley shelvador fridge. the original power cord melted. i replaced the cord and all the wiring...not operating anymore. i have looked everywhere for the model and serial # but cant find it.

Why did the cord melt has to be a serious electrical issue like a frozen refrigerant pump motor, that means the fridge is done and should be replaced. If you wan to repair it contact a local appliance repair shop that sells used/rebuild fridges and has scraped parts, you may be able to find used parts for it.

I have ordered replacement switch for my 1/2" Makita model #DP4700. Switch #651314-6. I'm confused as to rewiring the switch wires. There are 2 wires in the housing, both back, one appears to connect...

If the part is an exact replacement for what you have, what is the issue. U just replace it in the exact same way that the old switch is wired.

Are you needing advice, links, tricks, or all of the above?
If it's advice you want:
If you are not buying an after market harness and all of the oem wiring is intact replace one wire at a time from the component all the way back to the fuse box. Its tedious but, it's a sure fire way to get it right the first time.

Secondly, I'd by a haynes manual or some other wiring diagram. Study it for at least a couple weeks or until you are completely comfortable taking on the task.

Color code your wires and label both the old and new ones with paper tape and a permanent marker so that you know what each one is for.

Last but not least, make sure that the battery is disconnected... ;o)
