I dont recommend the refrigerator repair you are performing, as you are altering how it is designed to receive power. Furthermore, there is no negative and positive wiring on a 120 v A/C circuit, only hot and neutral. That being said, on a typical two wire cord, the hot lead is usually the ribbed side. On a three wire cord, the ground usually runs along the center.

Need to disconnect water line at back of frig to move it temporarily while floor is replaced. Connected with compression fitting and ferrule.


You may be forced to cut the copper pipe and buy a new compression fitting and ferrule and add it to the cut off end of the copper tubing when you decide to re-hookup the refrigerator.
Remember to cut the pipe , if you choose to do so, with a tubing cutter so as not to "smash" the cut end.
This problem can happen any time dissimilar metals are joined, they can "freeze" together.
God bless your efforts.

When I was moving I left my freezer over night and someone cut the wires on my chest freezer model fcm5hdmbwh. I can't find paper work and I tried to get a diagram online but I cant find one.


Go to your local big box DIY store. You need about 3 metres of cable of the same type, probably 3 core, live - neutral - earth. Then you can buy a wire on plug. Where the wire goes into the chest freezer there will be either a cover, or you might have to get to it from underneath. Hopefully the connections are of the screw down type, but they might have crimped connectors with a hole in the centre that a screw goes through. In which case you will also need a crimp too and connectors.

Replace burnt power cable


You can replace it with the average extension cord as most can hold up to 12 amps and your freezer will pull 2-5. Just cut the extension cord to length and cut before where the wires are burnt out. Strip wires and connect black to black, white to white and green to green. Marrett each section of wires and plug it in. If you use electrical tape to make a bundle with the Marretts afterwards that will make sure there is less of a chance the Marretts will fall off.



good luck

Keeps saying icefill but no ice


I searched forever for an answer to this and never found one. So this is what I did when you take the cover off on the left hand side there are two switches with two wires coming from.each switch. Then in the same group of wires the is two slightly larger wires one red one black. Those wires go to the optic eye that tells the machine is full. Cut and splice these teo wires together coming from the circuit board this will tell the machine it is empty and should make ice. Worked for me. It just doesn't cut off on its own whenever its full.

. Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay. The relay is a small usually black cube shaped electrical part plugged into the compressor or wired to it nearby. It may appear burnt or rattle when shaken if it's bad. The two connections should show continuity with an amp meter. If it's good then it's most likely the compressor causing the problem.

The alarm keeps going off but the freezer stays cold


Hi, some freezers, mainly chest type have a alarm button on them, which is located in various places to shut it off. Yours is showing a photo of an upright. I would suggest getting a free standing thermometer to set in the freezer to make sure it is staying at the setting you have. It could be that your thermostat is in need of calibration causing it to sound off when it isn't supposed to.What we recommend on freezers that have this problem, as long as there is no problem with it working, is to disconnect the alarm buzzer on a temp. basis. All that is needed to do, is to locate the alarm which you should be able to see and hear. Get to the wiring, kill power and clip one wire to the alarm. Very easy to do when you have found it. If it has male or female connectors going to it, just unplug one of the wires going to it which will stop the alarm only. Very simple wiring going to it. You can always plug it back in if for some reason you want to sell it in the future, or just leave it off. If you cant do this, you will have to call out a tech who will go through the system and try and find out why it is going off. It is either out off calibration it self, or the thermostat control is off. This can get costly. I normally don't recommend cutting or removing a wire to repair something, but this is a exception. On commercial walk-in boxes, we sometimes take the alarm probe which is on the return- air side of the freezer when they fail or are a problem with going off, and just move the probe into the supply air side which solves this problem. I have had this happen to many freezers on this site, and by doing this has solved the problem with out costing a lot of $$$. This is the only reason I have them do this is the cost of having someone out.

New fridge is creating icecles on the top and door inside of freezer.


This problem can mean outside air is getting in. Look at your door seal, is it cut or crimped or out of its sattle. Another pos. problem is defrost. During the defrost cycle heators turn on and cause steam inside to rise up and collect at the roof, then refreeze, check the back panel for a good tight fit inside, is it bent or warped? That will let out the steam vapor that should stay right at the evap coil.

Hubbell plug


Look on the electrical data plate. It should give you the info you need to know. I went to "victory-refrig.com". It looks as if you have a 3 door unit. The condensing unit is rated at 208-230 volts and is single phase. If your data plate confirms this, you need to use a plug that will accomodate 4 wires (4 prongs). Ground, neutral, and 2 power wires. It also shows that the unit is rated for 12.9 amps so a 20 amp plug is o,k. to use as long as you have the correct voltage. Do not attempt to use 115-120 volts on this as it is not designed for it and will most likely damage the unit. The web site has manuals, diagrams, and such. It looks user frendly, just got to look for what you want.
Hope this helps.
Good Luck
