If there are only 2 connections on your thermostat you wont do any damage whichever way you put them on, one way it will not run the other way around it will. If it has more than 2 connections let me know what make the thermostat is as connections differ.

kind regards,

Initially, if the gray and black wires both go to the thermostat, then it would not matter which goes to what terminal as there is no polarity nor the thermostat require specific wiring. If however, these wires go elsewhere and not the thermostat, then perhaps you can post back the exact model number so as to ascertain with its corresponding wiring diagram.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Why is Hotpoint RLA64T Fridge freezing up after new thermostat fitted?

Make sure that the temp probe from the thermostat is located exactly where the old one was. If it had a plastic sleeve on the old one, the new one will need that sleeve. You shouldn't need to calibrate the control if it is the one specified for this model. If it was a generic replacement then possibly it could need some adjustment.

As you have described yourself as an electronics engineer, you should know that when thermostats go down, they fail. Thermocouples on the other hand can go strange but easy ones first.
Check the wiring continuity to and from the thermocouple.

if he means temp sensor he is correct as they are foamed into the liner in manufacture you would destroy the liner to reach it however there are repair kits available for some models which bypass faulty sensor and allow it to run on ambient sensor you will need to check with bosch tech dept to verify this.

Fitted tall larder fridge freezing up on the back wall what is the problem and how do l sort.

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.
