just bought a unit to eventually convert to a kegerator. I haven't got the chance to even hook it up yet and i'm leaving tomorrow morning for my desert trip unfortunately, this means that by the time i come back, i'll be close to my no-return date

SO...i was wondering...wtf is this wire? is it a ground? why is it disconnected? is my unit broken or something?





sorry about the crappy pix...i'm stuck with the phone until the new charger for my cam comes in

probably just paranoid, but i just don't get what this wire could possibly do...

THX!

I can't get at the back of mine very easily to check it, but I would have remembered a disconnected wire if there had been one. Typically loose wires on appliances are bad... It does kinda look like a ground though

a green wire is a ground - can't see in the pic what it is still attached to though. the chassis?

I'm pretty sure my fridge doesn't have any wires sticking out. Maybe you should return it?

well...look at that. it's coming off the compressor. see where the bolt is and that little black wrench shape above it? that wrench shape should be bolted down.

the compressor popped up and ripped the ground out. it should be connected to the rest of the grounds on the left.

this damn thing's broken...well, broken enough for a new fridge. guess i'm going in for an exchange early tomorrow before i go to the desert...no biggie

thanks guys

I wouldn't return it based on that. Just strip a little insulation off and shove it under that screw where the other green wire goes. The ring terminal just got flexed enough to break.
