Im not quite sure i understand what you mean, is it still mounted in the fridge? on my compressor, there was a little box on the back with 2 wires comming out of it - 1 for power and 1 for the thermostat. other than that it was basically just screwed on to the back of the fridge with some kind of a frame and some impressively long screws :shock:

This may be a little off topic but I hope it will make sense at the end.
You guys are thinking of small coolant compressors with small outputs, why not go bigger. Without going to far off subject I will tell you the off road industry have been using modified AC pumps for main air compressors. Still capable of 500PSI+ with the volume of a shop compressor.
The best ones are made by "York" they are oil lubricated, use a simple V belt and can be bought cheep. Add a old lawn mower engine and you have a compleat portable compressor that at low pressers can run a drill and still fill a 500 psi tank.
I am at work still so I can't give anymore info just search the following terms. OBA, on board air, York AC compressor, ect.

I will post up latter with more info and I can get some pictures. I have the big daddy of them all a 10 CC duel piston sitting in the garage next to a lawnmower engine. :roll:

Wowie....I'd love to get one of those... Hyldgaard, this setup on the compressor looks a little bit different. There are a stack of wires that come of a few different places on it :(...

Thank you so much for that mate, I really appreciate it. The thing that I'm worried about is the power supply to the compressor. It is completely dead after all. I'm worried that I finally get the unit out, and can't get it to run. Is it possible that the motor inside the compressor has blown?

mitchza I have no idea really... you should remove the compressor and try to get it to run - that's all... I've already spend more time replaying to your questions than it takes to remove the compressor... just do it

no you haven't wasted my time I just meant that the best way to find out whether it would work or not is to test it... since we didn't get a picture of that firdge we can't really give you any good answers to your questions...
