Can't find a supplier for a new thermostat

Model of fridge is Avanti RM18W There is no record of this model even on the Avanti web site in the discontinued products area.

    Mee too, sells them for $35 plus $10 shipping. Just pulled mine out and am going to search around the Indianapolis area for a refridgeration place that might have something similar. My wine cooler worked fine when I bypassed the switch. Let me know if you find anything.

SOURCE: Refrigerator model 309YBT quit working on Friday

Good day,
You did not say if it was running or not.
If not running at all, then it may be the cold control, (thermostat) that has failed. You can remove it, jump the 2 wires going to it, and see if it runs and cools.
If so, you may be able to contact your local appliance parts house for a replacement.
However, if running and not cooling, then 2 options.
1. If under 5 years, sealed system should be under warrant. Call your selling dealer for details.'
2. If over 5 years, not price effective.

  • Avanti does not make parts anymore. So you will have to improvise with an after market.. Which will be very easy. You want to find a thermostat that chills between 50-68 degrees.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.
Regards, Tony

Runs but not cooling

If the compressor is running but the fridge is not cooling it will be one of 2 things.
1. Thermostat/defrost element
Your model may have a defrost element, if the thermostat is faulty it could be supplying power to the element to it will be fighting against the cooling, Check if it has 2 wires running behind the cooling plate and if it does you have to disconnect one of the wires from the thermostat and see if it helps.

2. The fridge could have a leak and may have lost it's gas, This is pretty much fatal and means a new one.

I need to replace the boot seal on my Avanti front loading washing machine W1092F but the machine has been discontinued. I've called Sears, Home Depot, etc and no one has this part. Help!

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

FixYa is sorry but this Forum does not supply parts, part numbers, prices or other details direct; it's just made up of ordinary guys and gals, probably at home, from all over the world, with experience of addressing problems and giving guidance for free on the web. Also members on Fixya are not 'affiliated' to, or representative of, any manufacturer at all, just using their experience gained on many makes and models, probably over many years ;-0)
Spares Suppliers
You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make model number) washer spares' and you may be presented with a number of sources from which you can order.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Maytag 2756dew ice buildup in back of freezer making food soften and fridge box too warm. Have replaced defrost heater and thermostat. This ongoing problem...any suggestions?

Good day,
If the heater and defrost thermostat are new, then you have replaced 2 out of the three components of the defrost system. Your model number didn't work, so check with your supplier.

Here's a good tutorial.
