I have an ancient Sears Coldspot refrigerator that I use to keep my "beverages" cool in my shop.  This unit recently decided to stop cooling.  I checked the thermostat and compressor, both are working fine.  I need a schematic, which on this unit has to be very minimal.

The only information I can locate is Sears Coldspot series 66931.  No other number are visable.

Any help would be appreciated.

That is a stock number, no way to find info without a model number, and doubt any schematic would be available except from sears.....now you say the compressor is running, is this a frost free box or non frost free, in other words is there a fan in the freezer or is this a manual defrost unit....if this is a non frost free do not see how a schematic would help becsue if the compressor is running only thing left is a compressor broken internally or the freon has been lost because of a leak in a freon line...

This is a frost free model, has the element and fan in the freezer compartment.  After much cleaning, I was able to locate the Sears PN for the unit.  106 7669360.  I placed power directly to the compressor and it ran and cooled the unit, so I know the compressor and freon are okay.  I verified the thermostat using an ohm meter, simple open and close, works fine.

Thanks for your help.

If the box is dead when it is not cooling could it be as simple as the defrost timer has the box stuck in defrost???  It would be dead except for the light..

It is definitely dead , with the exception of the light.  So exactly where would the defrost timer be hiding?  I can see what looks like "button" type switch on the coils in the freezer.  Is this my defrost timer?

Thanks in advance.

Well Hell, no wonder I could not find any defrost timer, this has the flex tray ice maker, this runs the whole box, sounds like it went out in defrost....you would have to replace the ice maker or install an ice maker by-pass system from Supco i if this is the problem.....remove the ice maker from the frig, look on the back of the plastic head, you will see a place you can turn the gears, it will have a mark that will line up with another line on the back of the head, if these are lined up it is in defrost, you can take a coin and turn that button to get it out of defrost to see if the compressor and fans then do come on, this will tell you if the ice maker is the problem...these rotate and make ice every 2 hours compressor run time and take the box into defrost every 8 hours compressor run time, there are two sets of gears inside of that head, one runs the ice maker and the other runs the refrigerator...you might be able to get the ice maker loose from its mountings leaving the harness plugged in and turn that dial on the back of the head to see if the frig then runs....if you remove the ice maker the box will just be dead as it has to have the ice maker installed...or the icemaker could just have a bad on/off switch inside of the head, but once the head is taken apart both sets of gears would have to be replaced and calibrated...this is not something you would want to attempt...so let us see if this is the problem.....turn that dial in the back of the ice maker head to see if the box comes on or not....
