Question about Refrigerators
The thermostat is a simple switch, it unlikely to be the stat but it,a not impossible, if it were arcing it could cause a trip. My guess is it's more likely to be the starter on the compressor or the compressor itself. If you know what you are doing and are qualified you could check the stat for leakage. (You could also eliminate it by bridging it out but I don't like the idea if it's tripping). Have you tried disconnecting the compressor to see if it still trips? HIGH VOLTAGES BEWARE

The "compressor side" probably consists of the compressor and condenser fan. One, or both of those could be grounded out. Try testing continuity to ground with an electric meter on both parts, if your handy with a meter. Remove relay and overload from compressor and check all three compressor pins to ground on unit. Check from each pin to the copper tubing. You should not read any continuity. If you do the compressor is grounded. :(

It's the defrost timer. Nothing else can shut off the cooling fan in the rear, the circulating fan in the freezer and the compressor at the same time. Try looking near your temperature control for a small hole that you can fit your small finger into. Grab a screwdriver and try turning the 2 tooth bezel located there. It won't look like a knob or adjuster, but that IS your defrost timer. Rotating it will restart your fridge, but the timer motor is bad so it will have to be replaced.This is just a quick way to confirm the diagnosis.
