Temperature Control Thermostat

RepairClinic Item # 310893

If the refrigerator is freezing food the temperature control thermostat might be defective. The thermostat allows power to flow through to the compressor, evaporator fan and condenser fan. Try rotating the temperature control thermostat all the way from stop to stop and listen for a click. If a click is heard the thermostat is probably OK. If not, remove the thermostat and check it for continuity. It should have continuity when it's calling for cooling.
