It's a standard 3 prong plug. Positive, negative and ground. The wire is 16 gauge and looks to be 1 foot long.

Could be a 220 volt with the black and brown hot.

Please give us the make and model number of the unit.

mayer i wrote down as much info i could on further inspection of wires it seems colors are black grey and cream. thanks for all the help so far martin


It makes a difference. The gray is a substitute for white. Strip the wire up a little bit to see if the color changes. Time may have aged the wire.

See if there is a number like COR10DBD1T. Please take a look at the insertion point on the cooler and identify which line is grounded out or attached to the frame. Then we can talk about how to wire the plug. Also please un-accept my answer till we get the problem solved. It is a standard 110/115 plug not a 220/240. We want the correct wire for ground and do not want to reverse polarity. I'm not sure why because at the breaker box both ground and white are connected to the same bar, but let's do it according to code.


stripped wire its standard white,black,green i had put new plug on and wired it black {hot} white{neutral} green{ground} the reason i asked if a special plug was needed was because i noticed some burn color on hot terminal its a very old cooler type you would see in store for cans or bottles of pop we use it at work when we have a function.


Third color change on the wires. Here's the video you need: Now you can accept the answer. Thanks
