I guess it is a European spec, it fits Isotherm fridges. My fridge has to be returned due to shipping damage, I need to know in case the replacement unit’s 120 v ac line cord is too short.

Does it use a separate ground wire???

Thanks,

That’s an odd one.  I’ve never seen that one before.  I always used Interpower as a reference for cord types, but I don’t see one like that.  It looks a bit like the Euro IEC 60320 rectangular C19/C20 form factor, but the C19C20 has the two power connections offset to one side, and has a ground.  Might be a proprietary one.

John, that’s the AC input. On my fridge a separate “computer” type socket/cord is mounted/grounded/fused elsewhere on the fridge chassis but close to the compressor. As you can see the DC connection is down in the lower section of spade terminals.

OK, I guess I will have to assume my replacement fridge has all of the needed harnesses  taped up inside the cooler. I did not see another junction box on the outside anywhere. FYI I don't like that method of just having individual wires hanging in space, that is a recipe for fatigue failure of the terminals. Did you secure all the loose wires into a tight bundle?

Thanks

I went through the whole thing and rerouted many of the wires and secured some, especially the main input wires. If your AC input cable isn’t long enough you can just get a long computer cable to replace the the supplied one. I’ve found that someplace like Goodwill will have tons of odd cables for less than a dollar. The AC input cable on my fridge is a typical computer type that’s 16 gauge, very common. Your fridge should have had the AC input wire assembly already installed.

I helped install a similar if not identical model in our son's Sprinter van conversion. From memory, there was a cord with 3 pigtails on the end, 2 of them with push-on connectors as shown above. There was a designated grounding screw on the flat surface just below the SECOP unit (although tiny and not painted green...). See attached photos for how we secured the 12vdc and 120vac wiring...

I don't have any recollection whether there was an actual plug on the AC cord or not... in our case both the AC and DC connections were "hard-wired"...

Tom, that is a gorgeous installation, you have to love those little self adhesive cable pads. Did it just vent out the bottom of the drawer?

Yes, for now the exhaust comes out below the drawer. We've been watching for signs of overheating, but its been fine so far. There is some air intake from the bottom rear of the cabinet, through a space designed to hold shoes. If necessary we can add more exhaust venting at the top rear or the end of the cabinet, which is exposed within the van's sliding door opening.
