How to remove and replace Thermester


If you discover that your refrigerator is not getting cool enough or not cooling down at all, then it is perfectly possible you may need to change your refrigerator thermostat. If you wish to test the thermostat to make sure whether it is working or not, then you should change the refrigerator temperature to something a bit cooler than normal. If the thermostat is working okay then it will take a few hours to maintain a steady temperature. However, if it doesn't then it will need replacing.

Step 1 - Preparation for Replacing Thermostat
The first thing you should do before undertaking this work is to turn off the appliance from the mains. This is something that should be done with all appliances of an electrical nature for safety reasons. If you find that the plug is hidden away behind cupboards or panels then you should turn off all the power to the entire kitchen.

Step 2 - Locate the Thermostat
Next you need to find the thermostat and where it is positioned inside the refrigerator. For the majority of refrigerators where they have a freezer on the top level, the thermostat will be right at the back of the fridge or on the roof of the fridge on underneath the freezer panel. If you have a refrigerator that is next to the freezer then the thermostat should be found in the freezer at the back.

Step 3 - Remove Shelving
Ensure that you take out all frozen food and shelves that are in your way that many prevent you from working on the job with plenty of space to move about in. In order to take out some of the shelves on the inside you may have to make a few screws loose and take out clips holding it in place.

Step 4 - Remove Wires
There will be some wires that are attached to the thermostat and these need to be pulled away gently using the pliers. You should make sure that you are extremely careful doing this as if you pull too hard or grip the wires in the middle then they could break under the pressure.

Step 5 - Take the Broken Thermostat Out
You are now in a position to take the old faulty thermostat out of the refrigerator after taking out the remaining screws and clips. If the thermostat is around an evaporator tube then you should take care then removing as this may cause damage.

Step 6 - Install the New Thermostat
Once you have gone through all the steps, then you should put the new replacement thermostat in to the refrigerator in the same place as the old one. Ensure that you screw it into place and reconnect all the wires. Ensure that when you have done this and put the panel back on to the thermostat that it is secure. Next put back any shelving you took out before replacing the thermostat.

Step 7 - Test the Refrigerator
Finally, turn the power to the refrigerator back on and then wait for the refrigerator to cool down again to a lower temperature. If the new thermostat is working correctly then it will kick in and maintain a steady temperature within your refrigerator.

I hope this will help in solving the problem....

How to change the thermostat

For 1999 Oldsmobile Aurora 4.0L SFI DOHC 8cyl check thie how to replace a Thermostat:

1. Thermostat

1. 3/8 in. Drive Ratchet
2. Needle Nose Pliers
3. Screwdriver
4. Cooling System Pressure Tester
5. Socket Set
6. Radiator Hook Tool

Step 1 Open the hood and locate the vehicle’s radiator.
o Tip: Make sure the vehicle has cooled down before inspection.
o Tip: Safety Tip:Always wear safety glasses when working on your vehicle. Wear other personal protective equipment (PPE) when necessary, for example latex gloves or safety shoes.

Step 2 Remove the vehicle’s radiator cap and use a radiator pressure tester to check for leaks.

Step 3 Drain out some of the engine coolant in the radiator so the coolant level is below the thermostat housing to prevent leaking when replacing the thermostat.

Step 4 If necessary, remove the upper radiator hose.
o Tip: A twisting motion may help to initially break the upper radiator hose loose. You can also use a flathead screwdriver to help pry the hose off. Make sure not to damage the hose.

Step 5 Remove the thermostat housing bolts.

Step 6 Remove the thermostat housing.

Step 7 Remove the thermostat.
o Tip: Make sure to note the way the thermostat is installed. Installing the thermostat backwards will affect how the cooling system performs.

Step 8 Clean the mounting surfaces. Install the new thermostat as it was removed and always use a new thermostat gasket.

Step 9 Reinstall thermostat housing and tighten mounting bolts evenly. If applicable, reconnect the upper radiator hose.

Step 10 Refill the cooling system with coolant.

Step 11 Start the vehicle with the radiator cap off and allow the engine to run for several minutes. This allows the air bubbles to escape the cooling system.

Step 12 Reinstall the radiator cap.

Step 13 Run the engine until up to normal operating temperature. Remember to keep an eye on the temperature gauge to prevent overheating.

Hope helps (remember rated)

I need step by step instructions on how to

1990 Cadillac Deville 4.5L FI 8cyl Repair Guide

Never open, service, or drain the radiator or cooling system when hot; serious burns can occur from the steam and hot coolant. In addition, when draining engine coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted to ethylene glycol antifreeze and could drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantities. Always drain coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or is several years old.

4.5L and 4.9L Engines
  1. Drain the coolant to a level below the thermostat housing.
  2. It may be necessary to remove the upper air filter assembly on some models.
  3. Remove the 2 bolts securing the upper thermostat housing to the lower housing.
  4. Remove the upper thermostat housing.
  5. Remove the thermostat and O-ring from the lower housing.

Fig. Thermostat installation-4.5L and 4.9L engines

To install:
  1. Install the thermostat and a new O-ring to the lower housing.
  2. Install the upper thermostat housing to the lower housing. Tighten the thermostat housing bolts to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm).
  3. Refill the cooling system using a 50/50 mixture of water and ethylene glycol antifreeze.
  4. Start the engine and check for coolant leaks. Allow the engine to come to normal operating temperature. Recheck for coolant leaks.

Hope helps with this (remember rated this) Good luck.

Change the thermostat in the galant.

1. Raise the front of your Mitsubishi Galant with a jack and lower onto jack stands, or use wheel ramps. Disconnect the negative cable from the battery. Drain the coolant into a suitable container by opening the drain plug on the bottom of the radiator.
2. Step 2 Follow the upper radiator hose to where it meets the engine at the thermostat housing. Loosen the clamp at the engine end of the radiator hose and pull the hose off the thermostat housing.
3. Step 3 Remove the two bolts on the thermostat housing cover and pull off the cover. Note the position of the old thermostat and remove it from the thermostat housing. Place a rag in the thermostat housing and scrape any gasket residue from the inside of the thermostat housing cover.
4. Step 4 Take out the rag and insert the new thermostat in the same position as the old one, with the spring-side facing into the engine. Install the new gasket or o-ring, depending on the type of thermostat you are installing. Note that most late 1980s and early 1990s Galant models use a thermostat gasket.
5. Step 5 Replace the thermostat housing cover and tighten the bolts. Re-attach the radiator hose and tighten the clamp. Fill the radiator with new coolant, or use the coolant drained from your Galant earlier if it's relatively new and clean.
6. Step 6 Start your Mitsubishi Galant and run with the heater on high until it reaches operating temperature. Make sure the heater is blowing warm air to ensure the thermostat is working properly. Check for leaks and tighten the radiator hose clamps if you detect any.
