The Home Smithy :

Please click here to download the manual. Please see the picture of the control board on page 40 to locate the input terminals.

JACUSTOMER-mejpqx8s- :

Hand full of wires enter the black box in the access area behind the frig. I do not see a drawing that lays out this. I want test DC wires that enter the black box? Right?

The Home Smithy :

Yes. You need to test the DC input wires. the black box, is it held on the back of the unit by a few 1/4" hex head screws?
If so remove them and the plastic cover will come off.
