Whirlpool et20akxlnr2 wiring question
« on: May 30, 2014, 12:39:30 PM »

Okay, so here is my story....I got all of the equipment to turn this old garage fridge into a kegerator. I decided to run the faucet handle shank through the right side of the fridge instead of the door. So about 23 inches down from the top and about 7 inches in from the front i drilled a 1 inch hole with a hole saw. I drilled from the outside to the inside. When I opened the fridge after drilling to clean out the hole I noticed some copper shavings. I looked into the hole and discovered that I had drilled right through a white coated copper braided wire. The wire is inside the insulation but closest to the inside wall. The light still works and the fridge still runs as though nothing is wrong. I adjusted temp back and forth and the compressor would turn on and off accordingly. Any ideas on what this wire may be? I am sure I may be able to cut more of the inside wall away and splice the wire together but just curious what it may be? Thanks for the help
