Wiring window AC unit into glycol chiller

Hello all,

i am planning to remove the evaporator from my 5000btu unit and put it in a glycol solution for chilling a beer fermentation chamber. Unfortunately I think some of the ground wires are attached to the evaporator itself. There are 3 wires attached to the evaporator, and I just need to know where I can reattach them once the evaporator has been removed from the casing. I have already bypassed the thermostat so I can control the AC with an external temperature controlling unit. I attached photos of the 3 wires Iím trying to reattach somewhere else.

Thanka!

Welcome to the forums.

Those are grounds. All metal parts of the A/C must be bonded together.

Great.so then could I attach all three of them with the same screw to the metal outer casing. For example into this premade hole?

Yes... just make sure they are making a good connection. Scraping the paint around the hole would be good. I like to use star washers for good connections.
