Uline 75R refrigerator thermostat stopped working I am reposting Don Willis's EXCELLENT but hard to find tutorial on how to replace a thermostat on a Uline 75R. Since he spelled "refrigerator" incorrectly (Refidgerator), Google cannot find it easily! I followed these instruction and finished in about an hour. Got the thermostat part on eBay (Part Peddler) (2766-S) from eBay for about $30. Don's post follows: The light worked so it was getting power. I used a electrical tester (pencil like device I bought at lowes) to figure out that power was making it to the thermostat (black wire) but not after the switch (blue wire). To change the thermostat. 1) take covers off the front bottom (one flathead 1/4" hex screw) and back panel (about 10 flathead 1/4" hex screws) of fridge. 2) unscrew the old thermostat (2 screws). leave black and blue wires on it so you will know where to put them on the new one. 3) take out glass shelves on inside. Unscrew back panel {note: there are spacers that will fall out} . There are 2 phillips screws {on nuts} that hold the end of the thermometer to back panel. {I removed one and loosened the other to free the "coil" thermostat) reach hand under it and feed the thermometer back through hole and out back of fridge.You will notice a putty like substance that fills in the hole in the back where the thermometer gets fed through. Make sure you keep it to fill in the hole in the back. 4) feed new thermometer end through hole in the back {I found that using a Phillips head screwdriver to guide it through was useful} and install to back panel {using those two Philips screws and nuts).

    Uline 75R refrigerator thermostat stopped working

    I am reposting Don Willis's EXCELLENT but hard to find tutorial on how
    to replace a thermostat on a Uline 75R. Since he spelled "refrigerator"
    incorrectly (Refidgerator), Google cannot find it easily!


    I followed these instruction and finished in about an hour. Got the
    thermostat part on eBay (Part Peddler) (2766-S) from eBay for about $30.



    Don's post follows (with some of my edits):

    The light worked so it was getting power. I used a electrical tester
    (pencil like device I bought at lowes) to figure out that power was
    making it to the thermostat (black wire) but not after the switch (blue
    wire).

    To change the thermostat.



    1) take covers off the front bottom (one flathead 1/4" hex screw) and
    back panel (about 10 flathead 1/4" hex screws) of fridge.



    2) unscrew the old thermostat (2 screws). leave black and blue wires on
    it so you will know where to put them on the new one.



    3) take out glass shelves on inside. Unscrew back panel {note: there are
    spacers that will fall out} . There are 2 phillips screws {on nuts}
    that hold the end of the thermometer to back panel. {I removed one and
    loosened the other to free the "coil" thermostat)

    reach hand under it and feed the thermometer back through hole and out
    back of fridge.You will notice a putty like substance that fills in the
    hole in the back where the thermometer gets fed through. Make sure you
    keep it to fill in the hole in the back.



    4) feed new thermometer end through hole in the back {I found that using
    a Phillips head screwdriver to guide it through was useful} and install
    to back panel {using those two Philips screws and nuts). Put the putty
    back in the hole to insulate around it.


    5) feed the electrical end of thermostat through bottom of fridge



    6) take the wires off the old one and attach to the new one.



    7) attach the thermostat to its mounting location



    8) reinstall all the screws in the front and back and you are in
    business.


    Had a hard time finding someone to service it. They wanted $200 to come
    out to the house + parts and labor.



    The new thermostat cost $33 at All Brand appliance. I am from Mass and
    picked it up in Brockton. I emailed U-line and they sent me the new part
    number. The allBrandappliance site had the old part number (2766-s)



    I am not an electrician and this was a few hours work.

You have 2 wires. Unplug and put wires together. Plug unit back in and check to see if everything is running. Doesnt matter where the wires go with a 2 wire thermostat

U-line 75R was not cold. Shorting the two wires at the thermostat, the motor runs and starts to get cold. Replaced the thermostat, but it didn't run at all. Please help. Thanks


There is a slight possibility that the unit's defrost timer just happen to be in defrost when you replaced the temperature control. Try advancing the defrost timer (or just let it sit for about 1/2 an hour and see if it comes back on). If you have more questions, let me know. Hope this helps!

My uline drawer fridge quit working. Who should I call to fix it?


I would call Uline directly and allow them to recommend someone in your area that does warranty work for Uline. In this fashion, you are assured professional results and OEM parts....

Good Luck, Eric Campion
