My experience has been that a dose of your favorite silicone sealant in the grommet groove and then on both sides of the grommet where it meets the metal will greatly reduce the chances of "cutting through".

Just a thought- is that watts or VA? 350 watts sounds like a lot, but 350 VA seems reasonable...

No it's 350 watts. Didn't have a kill-a-watt meter at the time, so I calibrated and used utility meter to measure it , spinning wheel type. Think that was without the 19 watt defrost.

It's an avacado green one bought in 80's . Only had to replace electrical thermostat, it was short cycling compressor for some reason, runs perfect now.

Fridge's old compressor must be built like a tank, think it was short cycling for few years before I figured out lights dimming was me. Would click off, wait minute or 2 , then cycle about 4-5 times more before running continuously.

Took thermostat apart and saw some secondary cantilevered electrical contact broke in half. Broke and still ran. Lucky it didn't electrocute me, fridge wasn't safty grounded, but oven 6 inches away was. Got to watch those touch voltages on things less than 6 feet apart (finger tip to finger tip).

Just an update here.. and not to be interpreted as a complaint about Micro-Air...

My Micro-Air EasyStart failed tonight. It would not run the compressor on utility power. The condenser's fan would start and stay spinning. Honestly, it sounded like everything was starting up and running normal. I lost a good 30 minutes thinking everything was good electrically speaking.

Eventually I figured out I was missing 2,000 watts of power consumption and the compressor was not running. I used my Sense meter and the app on my phone to watch everything starting up. I could see the compressor trying to start but failing.

I removed the Micro-Air unit and thankfully I wired in a bullet connector on the power wire I had to cut to do the installation. I made up a pigtail with a screw terminal on one end in case I ever had to remove the EasyStart. It was easy enough to patch back in the original power wire to the contactor. Simply removed the other 2 wires with spade terminals.

I'll update how the RMA process goes and if they can troubleshoot it on their end to find the root cause. I realize I probably missed out on the opportunity to do testing with the EasyStart and the various dip switches but I needed to get things up and running.
