I need some electrical support with a fridge. I want to hack a fridge for brewing craft beer, and the fridge is then controlled by a Rasperry Pi. I had an old fridge which was already hacked (by a friend), but I need to switch the system over to a new fridge because the insulation on the old fridge is not very good.
This is the guide that I have been following: https://www.brewpi.com/fridge-hacking-guide/. I think that what I have done is similar to Option 3, using SSRs.
This is a picture of what the old fridge wiring looks like.
This is the new fridge wiring.
I basically just need to switch the wiring over to the new fridge. My new compressor is actually identical to the compressor in the link (fridge hacking guide). But I just can’t quite understand the schematic they have drawn because there are lots of different wires on the new fridge!
I’d love some help (in person), and live just around the corner from Makespace. Very happy to donate to EOF and/or remunerate the individual who can help!
Thanks and best wishes
