Here is my fridge sans shelves and all loose internals except for the moveable shelves on the fridge side. Based on the paperwork, I'm thinking this jammer is from 1983.

You need that Defrost timer.. it will turn on a heater every 8 hrs to warm up the coils to around 54 degrees.. the freezer side will rise a few degrees but its not a big deal to 5 gal of beer (thermal capacity) see my pics.. I took these with only the defrost timer removed (unplugged) and you can see the old thermo there.. After I made this error, i put the timer back in a used it to do its job. but I also spliced off that Orange wire to control my Compressor (thru the PID) because You DO NOT want the compressor on while the defrost heater is on (fight against each other and go no where) keep on posting where you decide to go with this.. but i can tell you 100% we have the exact same fridge guts and I know this baby

PS.. you see the orange wire going into the thermo? thats the hot from the defrost timer.. It kills power to the Compressor when the heater is on.. No worries, your PID will call for cold and even switch the switch on.. but nothing will happen during this time period as PIN 8 on the Auber will not be currently power (energized)..

Looking good so far. Upped the Hy value on the freezer to 5.0 until I need to ferment in there. Otherwise, it's chilling sodas, etc and providing the cool air for the fridge side.
