How to Replace a Thermostat in a Fridge?

If there cooling and defrosting problem in your fridge. Also over cooling or not getting cooling properly problem. Then the problem relates to thermostat.
The procedure to replace the thermostat is as follows: ---
1) First of all unplug the fridge/refrigerator unit from electrical outlet for complete safety.
2) In top freezer and bottom refrigerator model units. The thermostat is located at the rear of freezer side. But in some units its located in the bottom of the refrigerator floor panel.
3) In side-by-side refrigerator the thermostat is located at the back of the freezer side.
4) To remove the thermostat you will have to remove the screws from the icemaker section located in the freezer section.
5) After the screws from the freezer’s inner section are removed. The inside panel will get loose and come out.
6) Many a time the screws are hidden under rubber type butches. So its bit hard to locate the screws. So check out properly that all the screws in the inner section are properly removed.
7) After the inside panel of the freezer section is removed. You will see the thermostat. It has wires connected to its terminals. Be care full that you don’t pull out any wires. They are very thin and delicate wires.
8) The wires are connected to the thermostat by a connector. So slowly remove the connector from the thermostat using a needle nose pier. Take care you don’t put any force while doing this. It’s very delicate but not very hard to do.
9) After the wires are removed. Remove the screws holding the thermostat .In some models the thermostat is screwed to evaporator coil tubes. In that cases take care you don’t damage the tube while removing the screws holding the thermostat.
10) Before removing the thermostat take care you note down the position of old thermostat. so after the old thermostat is removed out by removing the screws. Place the new thermostat in the same exact position.
11) Refit all the parts which you removed while removing the old thermostat in reverse method. Take care you don’t miss any part fitting.
This will help. Thanks.

Will not stop running

Are you referring to the compressor not shutting off down below or the evaporator fan inside the cooling area not shutting off? Evaporator fan always runs the compressor is controlled by the thermostat you could have a bad thermostat if the compressor never shuts off.

How to test maytag refrigerator defrost thermostat

on your model the thermostat comes with a new heater
you have to read the t-stat when it's cold,unplug the harness,stick one end into the harness and stick the tip of the other probe into the other wire of the t-stat,or seeing that you have to replace the heater and t-stat anyway cut the two wires going to the t-stat,wire nut them together,manually turn the timer knob to put it into defrost and if the heater comes on you know the t-stat is can leave the heater on and get a hair dryer,melt out all the ice and then disconnect the t-stat wires and tape them or wirenut them,this way your machine will run for 10 to 12 days before it freezes up again giving you time to order your parts and you won't loose any food.when you get new parts melt out any ice again and change heater and t-stat.most likely the t-stat is bad,common problem.

Loose thermostat wire outside at condensor. Will not turn off when inside unit is off. If you wiggle thermostat wire or tap on housing it cuts off. What next?

That does not sound like a thermostat wire but rather a sticking .contactor If your unit runs after the thermostat shuts off and you tap the unit and it shuts off the contactor is sticking and needs to be replaced.

Having found there is no defrost timer on my frigidaire rlr1450 could my problem be the thermostat . on saterday the fridge ran all day and froze everything , switched it off overnight , on sunday it ran...

Yes your refrigerator could and most likely has a thermostat problem. Thermostats go bad in several ways, by not sensing the correct temperature, not working at all or sticking on until fresh food section becomes a freezer. Although I cannot find a Frigidaire Model RIR1450 in the US database that does not mean there is not one worldwide. Your refrigerator does have a thermostat most likely behind the control panel inside the fresh food section, Thanks Sea Breeze

Everything inside is frozen no matter what it is set at

The thermostat is very likely the cause in this case. Finding a model number like this example=> 362.154879 on the Compact Refrigerator will help you find the part number. Or unplug the refrigerator and disconnect the two wires on thermostat along with the mounting screws and then take the thermostat to a local refrigeration parts supplier. They can test and help you find a matching replacement thermostat, Hope this helps, Thanks Sea Breeze

I have a True GDM 26HL, The compressor and fan if plud in the wall works but plud in the unit it don't

If the compressor and fan together come on when you bypass the internal plug then, no power is going to the plug. I cannot find a manual for this fridge, but I will tell you what to look for in order to repair it.
I believe that the thermostat which controls the internal temperature is not working. This part controls the operation of the compressor and fan. Check the following things. Some of this may seem silly, but if you had called me out on a service all, I would be checking these things.
I would get a multimeter from Radio Shack, or Wal-mart Usually less than $20.00. Harbor Freight has excellent units for less than $10.00.
Follow this procedure:
1 Check to see that the unit is turned on. (Normally the thermostat also has the "off" switch built in to it.)
2 Unplug the entire unit from the wall.
3 Locate the thermostat control. Turn the control on (DON'T PLUG THE FRIDGE IN). Open up the compartment that covers the thermostat's wiring.
4 The thermostat will have two prongs sticking out of it with two wires attached to it. Remove the wires.
5 Turn the multimeter to the setting of RX1 or 200 Ohms (a unit of electrical resistance). Connect the red test lead of the meter to "V" and "mA" and the black test lead to "COM" Then turn the meter on. Touch the two test leads together. The number displayed on the meter face should go very close to zero. Like 0.2 or something like that or all the way to zero.(0.0) That means the meter is ready to use for testing the power function inside the thermostat and the fridge.
6 Take the two test leads to the meter and touch the two prongs of the thermostat. If the display goes close to zero, the thermostat is good. If the meter does not display anything or signifies out of range. Then the thermostat must be replaced.
7 Call a Refrigeration supply house and locate a thermostat. In refrigerator terminology it is called a "Cold Control" If you ask for that, they will know exactly what you are talking about.
If it is not the thermostat, Reassemble the thermostat/cold control completely.
Check for a defrost timer. This is a device that would probably be on the back of the fridge(but could be next to the cold control inside, or in another spot) with a VERY small knob on it or a slot to insert a screwdriver into.
When you find it follow this procedure:
1 Plug the compressor/fan assembly into the dead outlet inside the fridge cabinet.
2 Turn the cold control to it's highest number (coldest) setting
3 Rotate the knob or screw slot of the defrost timer slowly. The fridge may come one.
If the compressor comes on, you need a new defrost timer.
I hope this helps you.
Best Regards,

The auto timer in your Fridge is faultly and is not defrosting in the eight hour cycle. There could also be any wire detached from corrosion inside/within the freezer compartment that gives wrong signals to the the thermostat. You will have to remove the inside cover to confirm.check the wires to the heater/ failure of the heater. In case you are not able to do the work have this in mind and look into what the technician responds. take an estimate and move on.Helpful? good day
