So I'm converting an OLD Avanti fridge to a kegerator, I know this is simply a re-branded Haier model but I'm not sure which one.

It worked fine with the freezer in the top but in order to fit two kegs I needed to move it down across the back. It went down smoothly with no kinking/breaking but I needed to relocate the temp controller, which required extending the wires.

After doing this extension the fridge won't turn on. I haven't checked for continuity across the extensions yet as I need to leave for work but was wondering if anyone could confirm where the wires go on the thermostat.

I have written down:
Blk left
White R/F
Green R/R

When I hook it up this way and plug it in the fridge does not turn on to start cooling.

Anyone have the same fridge that can check it?

Can you post a picture?
I like to see what you did to the small tube coming out of the thermostat.


Cheers,

Mine didn't have a tube, just a flexible piece of metal.

I did get it figured out though. It was a resistance issue, apparently I miscalculated.
