I have an old glycol cooler and I want to wire in a remote switch (RF type).
The cooler consists of a fan, radiator, and pump. There are two
electrical cables going in to the cooler each with red, green, brown, blue wires.
Does anyone want to guess what the extra red wire is for?
My remote switch only has brown, green and blue wires. I am thinking about
just connecting the switch to the brown wire - would this work?
Also, the rating for the switch is 1200watts and would this be able to handle
the load for the pump motor?
Sorry for the sketchy information. I am not an electrician and don't have
a user manual for the cooler.
With out more information I assume that your cooler may be 3 phase of
undetermined size. If correct I would put an 3 pole relay of the correct
size in the start circuit and let your RF remote connect to the coil of the

I guess there is a fan speed control somewhere. There is a thing inside that
looks like the coil you
would find in a car. I wonder if this is some kind of thermostat or
controls the speed because the pump gets louder during hotter weather and the
fan speeds up.
There is another kind of guage thing inside with wires going into it and it
reads in PSI. I guess this
is Pounds Per Square Inches. What this is for, I have no idea.
My main concern is where to put my remote switch module as I don't want to
and burn it out. If I could just find a simple way to turn the pump motor
on/off with the RF switch module, then that would be ideal. I don't care if the
fan keeps running.
I'll take some photos of the thing and put them online.
