Wiring diagram of the chest freezer turned into chest fridge. The junction box is not required if all connections are made inside the fridge service compartment. Active (A) connection passes via latching relay terminals inside the thermostat.
Good day, They do a good job of hiding them, but it should be in the machine compartment near the compressor. Not too hard to remove, but you must use caution, in removing the long skinny capillary tube that is inserted into the tube that runs into the cabinet. NO, IT IS NOT A WIRE. It carries a small refrigerant charge inside and if broken, the control is ruined. Note: My experience, is the problem is a small loss of refrigerant charge in 90% of the cases, not the thermostat. If the thermostat will not shut off, and the unit runs for in excess of 24 hours, the interior temperature should be colder than -10 degrees. Check first. The purpose of a thermostat is not to turn the machine on, it's purpose is to turn it off. If the freon charge is low, it will not reach the sensing capillary tube of the thermostat described above.
Does your model have independent thermostats for the fridge & freezer???
If not, could be that you will need to change the Thermostat.
These are not expensive - around £10 if you buy on the Internet.
Easy to fit yourself...just turn off the power, remove the power plug from the wall, then unscrew the 'stat unit from inside near the top of the fridge (some are attached to the interior light) and remove the screw holding the thermostat tube to the rear wall.
Often the thermostat gets a small hole somewhere in the long tube, which then lets all the gas escape, making the stat useless.
You can see these small holes in the pipe if you use a magnifying eyeglass, like the kind Jewellers use.
The sound you are hearing is just the circulation of refrigerant through the system. More specifically it is caused by the changes of pressures happening when refrigerant passes through the capillary tube and into the evaporator, changing from a liquid to a gas. This is not dangerous at all.
you know where you adjust the temperature of your fridge. its a knob with a line that increase in thickness. or it may have numbers written on it. before you replace it. try adjusting that knob to set it to a higher temp. please if your taking the covers off the replace thermostat,, please turn the power off first.
The power coming into the fridge goes to the thermostat and when it's time for cooling the thermostat tells the compressor and other components to come on so it has to be the thermostat..Does the light insinde the fridge work? If so i would replace the thermostat and it should fix the problem!!!
first of all, switch off your freezer and let all the ice to melt. now snap the capilary with a great force....... don't worry nothing will be damaged beacuse it is the only way to pull the capilary out.............have a nice day :-)
This is due to the failure of the thermostat device..hence its not controlling the temperature..If you are good at electrical appliance repair i can tell u how to fix it...Otherwise i advice you give it for servicing...Let me know what you have choosen..
in order for the "stat" to sense the coldness of the freezer box it needs to be within the chilled space. it is probably held on by a couple of clips on the underside of the freezer compartment on the evaporator plate.
