    True cooler lights shorting

    customer has a true cooler
    TBB-4G-S
    it is a 3 door glass cooler with lights in the doors.
    The cord for the lights is at the bottom of the door. It is rubbing on the bottom hinge causing it to fray, split and spark when opened.
    Has anyone else come across this ?
    These cables were replaced 14 months ago.
    Owner will not plug these lights back in until the problem is addressed.

    thanks everyone

    I have seen this lots of times. Replace cordsets and route so they don't rub against anything when the doors are opened.

    Don't be too suprised. I am getting to hate the sight of the brand " TRUE ".
    Thermostats, then evaporator leaks.
    Hospital coolers in ideal environment, 8 years and we've had enough! We're junking them and replacing the single door units with domestic fridges.

    Ah, that felt good!
