Question about Hotpoint HSS25GFP Side by Side Refrigerator
Thank You for reading this;This fridge is obviously old. February 8th, I pulled it away from the wall and cleaned under and behind.(Never a problem up to then). February 13th a.m., found to be warm inside.Checked under for good Terminal (Block) connections etc., appear okay.Pull Thermostat down, and have current, Jump the 2 wire connectors that go to the Thermostat, Fridge begins to run!(I hear the compressor). Is it possible that just the Thermostat needs replacing? Ohm Meteris "Dead" across Thermostat Terminals. Thank You for any advice -Ed, Indianapolis
There should be a shot circuit or near zero ohms across the two terminals when it is warm and open circuit when at freezer temps. Either the small capilary tube has leaked all of the nitrogen out or the contacts have rusted or corroded. I would say you have found the culprit....
