How to replace thermostat - Refrigerators


Answers :

This all depends on the type of fridge. I had a problem with my fridge/freezer and it need a new thermostat.FIRST UNPLUG THE APPLAINCE FROM THE WALL SOCKET. Basically you need to get access to the thermostat and many models the control knob is on the inside and on some its outside on the top. You need to first undo the end where the capillary tube ends then remove the control knob. There is usually a nut holding the thermostat, remove that and also remove the electrical connector and simply pull until the whole of the capillary tube is out. Refit the new one in reverse order.
