    Do you have a manual that would tell me part numbers and how tricky is this repair? How much would it cost for someone else to repair (approx)

    Hi did you want to answer the question about the thermomstat replacement or should I try to ask another expert?
    Thanks

  • irbys1230 Sep 01, 2010

    I found the part for the model put it lists 2 thermostat regulators
    RF 7350-124 $7.95
    RF 7350-101 $12.95
    I think I need the regular thermostat, not the default. Would you advise which part is which?

  • irbys1230 Sep 01, 2010

    Why did you chose the more expensive part?
    Also, I am trying to remove the knob so I can get to the thermostat wires and the knob won't pull or pry off. I can't see a way to get to the wires without getting the small enclosure panel off. Do you think I am not pulling/ prying firmly enough?

Irbys, It seems that either the thermostat is non functional or the wiring to it is shorting somewhere. This shorting keeps the thermostat out of the picture and gives full current thus freezing all the time. To check, remove the thermostat, put insulation tape on both ends of the wire and run the fridge. If it still freezes then there is a short in the wiring. The fridge should run only when the two ends from the switch are joined. Else the fridge should not run. Only the lights should come on.

Hi, no matter how low you turn down the thermostat, it will freeze up anything in the fridge because you have a faulty thermostat that cannot regulate itself again.
Normally the thermostat is suppose to regulate when it cools to a certain point, but once it gets faulty it will either freeze up things in the fridge or does not cool again.
You need to replace the thermostat...

Haier minifridge freezing everything


My mini-fridge did a similar thing, until I realized that managed to put on the wrong temperature knob. It was technically backwards. They may have done this to you. I mean, it is a longshot, but try putting it on the highest setting to see if that helps. If it does not, you're most likely dealing with a faulty knob that's not actually changing the settings on the thermostat.

Beverage-air DW freezes


Try turning thermostat knob all the way to left or counter clockwise. This should shut the compressor off. If the compressor continues to run the thermostat is stuck closed & bad. If the compressor remains off with thermostat turned all the way to the left try turning it slightly to the right (warmest setting). See if it stops freezing. If it continues to freeze set at warmest setting replace the thermostat. Try pricing a thermostat out at Refrigeration Hardware. Link attached. Refrigeration Hardware Supply

My Haier mini fridge (model # HSW02C) is freezing everything in it's contents no matter what number setting (1-7) it's on. Is 1 supposed to be the coldest setting, or is 7? What should I do?


Hello
Number 1 may be the warmest.Set it to 2 or 3 and give it some time,a couple of hours to level out.

If this does not work try a higher number.

If still no luck then the thermostat or sensing bulb is bad and should be replaced.

Fridge is freezing everything on lowest temp


I believe your Thermostat is bad if you remove it it can be tested with a ohm meter and a glass of ice water. But first when you turn it all the way down it should have an audible click. turn off the electricity/unplug the frig take the plastic housing off to exspose the temp switch take off the elect wires should only be two. put an ohm/volt meter on the two terminals and ck for continuity. at its lowest setting(warmest) it should shut off no continuity as you turn it up it should click and have continuity. let me know if you need further. good luck

Haier wine cooler freezes the wine.


You may find that the thermostat is not working. Try to turn the thermostat to the warmest setting, the compressor should switch off within two hours, if not change the thermostat.
