I need to replace the door light/fan switch on my old kelvinator N610S fridge. Coming out of the fridge are two black wires and two orange/brown wires. On the back of the switch, the four pins are numbered 1,2,3,4. and numbers 3 and 1 are red. Which wires do I connect to which numbers?Thanksscott
nothing, I don't want to reconnect the wires until I'm sure.
thanks for your assistance
ok no probs thanks so much for your help Jon. Have a great day. I'll let you know if I have any more dramas
ok sure. will do
Thanks jon, the fridge is working again. You the man!!
not sure if you're still there of if you get this. But I have another question if that's ok.
so i plugged the wires into the switch as you advised, and all was working fine for about approx. 30 mins. All of a sudden the whole fridge stopped working, everything just stopped working. compressor, everything.
I can only guess that it's either an incredible coincidence that some other component in the fridge has stopped working, or that the switch has a problem. But it is all wired correctly, all the wires are properly isolated, and it already worked for a good 30 minutes. Very strange
Any ideas? thanks again for your time, if you are willing you could email me back at XXXXX@XXXXXX.XXX
Thanks alot mate

Hey Jonthanks for your reply. So, strangely, the fridge seems to have returned to normal and is now working fine?? very strange indeed. The only thing I can think might have been an issue (and I'm by NO means an electrically minded guy) is that I was told if you ever turn a fridge on its side, you need to leave it for a while so any air bubbles that have formed in the freon gas pipes can settle. We had to tip it on it's side to take off the switch properly and remount it in its housing. so I'm wondering if that was an issue. The next morning we came out and turned it on it worked fine, and has been ever since. weeeeiiirrrdd...Thanks again Jon
Yes. Definitely.If the machine was down on its side then it would affect the way it works and cools. I was not aware of the fact that you had this on its side. That would definitely cause the fluctuation in temp. And inconsistency.Let the machine run and it should regulate itself.If you have any more trouble please email me back here and I will help you more.But you should be good.Please hit the green accent button below if yo feel that I have answered your question Thanks again.
