I need to replace the type M thermostat on my 1952-ish WD12. I have a new stand alone thermostat, but need to know which terminal studs the two wires from the thermostat should attach to. The  Westinghouse manual shows the original goes to the #1 (red) and #3 (black) terminal studs.  Also, do I need to remove the non-functioning, original thermostat (stuck closed; compressor would not shut off)? Thanks

Thanks Johnie G... I'll pick one of these up and give it a whirl.  Hope I can get a couple of years out of this compressor still!!

You mean the entire inside mechanism is gone?

Your compressor is short-cycling probably because of the age of the compressor motor itself, as they age the tend to draw more power & the the original start-run relay trips out more often because it’s showing it’s age a well, you can try an external replacement type called a 3-in-one starter/booster, they’re pretty easy to hook up & they can help you get by with an older compressor.

Be aware that if the compressor is too far along the old path to an electrical retirement then the 3-in-one may not be a long term solution, in which case you’ll need to replace it ( the compressor), but it’s the cheapest “fix” you can try at this point.

Also note that your Ideal 35 is a small machine & it probably has a smaller compressor size of 1/5 HP or a 1/8 HP (horse power) unit, so get the correct size 3-in-one to match, don’t go with a 1/4, 1/3 or 1/2 HP  rated units as they will just burn up you start winding in your compressor quickly & its on its last leg anyway.

I'm in the process of restoring an original Vendo 44 and am looking for the wire basket that goes on the bottom of the bottle rack. Anyone have one?

Hey guys,

Picked up a nice Ideal 35 slider from a local antique store for a horse trade of a couple of old neons I had laying around.  I just got done replacing the fan motor and all the wiring and am having some issues.  The compressor will kick on for about 10-15 seconds then cut out (was working before I started fiddling).  I bought a new wiring harness from funtronics and don't have the thermostat "in" the machine, but I assumed that doesn't matter since it still needs to cool.  Any thoughts on what's kicking the compressor off?  Is there a replacement part somewhere for the relay switch that is screwed to the compressor? I'm 99% sure I have the wiring correct... Any help is appreciated.
