Question about Refrigerators
I'm the proud owner of an under-counter freezer with a defunct control board. I've tried long and hard to repair the board but with no success. I've now decided to circumvent the electronics by using a mechanical thermostat which I've ordered to suit the temperature range I require. So, a couple of questions. I assume the body of the thermostat is designed to be mounted externally. Ideally, I'd like to mount it near to the compressor to facilitate easy wiring. Am I correct in this assumption? How far should the capillary tube be inserted into the freezing compartment? My thermostat comes with 1500mm of capillary tubing and by my estimation (and considering my preferred installation position) approximately 700mm of the capillary will be sited internally, while 800mm will be external. Can anyone envisage any pitfalls with what I'm proposing?
Steve is smart, body therm might be near ref. box and capilaryneed ten cm..(thre inch..?)ferm contact where compessor start freezing in box.rest you imagine as well

SOURCE: Hi On a
I don't see where you have changes the temperature sensor.
They do go bad and when that happens the board can get a false reading and think the fridge is colder then it really is. Then it does just what you are describing...
I would change it and see what happens...
I am still a bit concerned about the icing problem though... seems like you may have two problems...but I would get them one at a time and do the sensor first...
Here is the sensor for you unit
