Timer problems

7 posts in this topic

Hi we have an old gibson fridge and we need to replace the timer but there are only 4 spots on the new timer and we have more than four wires to hook up.Lets start with the compressor it has two wires one is white and went to the old timer the other is blue and it goes up the back of the fridge Then there is a white wire that comes from up the back of the fridge and is connected to half of the electical cord that plugs in to the wall outlet.The other half of the plug is connected to a yellow wire that comes form the top of the fridge.Both of these have a conector and were conected seperatle to the old timer.There is a brown wire and a black wire that both come from up the back of the fridge and were also conected to the timer.And finally there is a black and red wire that come from the bottom of the fridge, I beleive these wire control the light.All of these wires have conectors and can inter conect with each other and the timer.I hope someone could help.Thanks for taking the time,Regards, cutter0734
