Hi REG! is there a service manual for this? I need to know the resistances of the ntc in order to rule out the relay stays at 404 to 434 ohms while running with the relay jumped out. Any tech manual would be greatly appreciated. Thanks as always!!

These units are often seen as Vking labels, mfr by Marvel.  Pretty simple to work on as long as can unit to start may have to use test cord at compressor.  Good frost pattern you need "service kit" includes thermister, SSAC control and potentiometer.  Insufficent frost sealed systen. The kit is  Basicly everything electronic.  File is too large to attach you may need service kit #42244531 , these units generally fail in one of two ways.  The unit will either be dead no compressor, or run continuouse and blow up all diet pop, and beer.

 

I will try to send file as PM

The control that was listed almost always is the problems with these, we carry these as standard truck stock. They can be used on almost all of the Marvel built units. Just make sure you adjust the slides on the switch properly, here's the service manual.

Here's how to set the switches per model.
