So I found a True TDD-3 commercial kegerator on Craigslist today. It was only $200, so I couldn't pass it up. I got it home and plugged it in to see if it worked. It came on and made a buzzing sound but it seemed to be working. I started looking at the wiring and found that some of the wires were spliced together with wire nuts and others were held together with electrical tape! The insulation has fallen off a few wires. I'm just glad I didn't burn the house down. Needless to say I'm going to have to rewire it. I can figure out what wires go to what, but I'm not sure how to secure them. I might need some help on that part. It's also going to require a ton of cleaning. You know that smell on your clothes the morning after a night at a smoky bar? This thing smells like that times 1,000!
I still haven't decided if I'm going to keep it or sell it when I'm done sprucing it up. It's a little big for my one car garage, but it is bad ass.
If anybody has experience with this sort of thing, I could really use some help.
Here are some pics.
I have a beverage air commercial. All commercial refrigerators run the evaporator fan anytime it is plugged in. The temperature control runs to a junction box that the compressor is plugged into and switches the compressor on. You got a great deal as long as the compressor is good. Unplug it from the junction box and plug it direct to a 110 volt source to make sure it chills.
