Quality Refrigerator Thermostat Parts From Repair Clinic

If your refrigerator is freezing the food instead of just keeping it chilled or the evaporator coils won’t defrost, the temperature control thermostat or defrost thermostat could be malfunctioning. You can use a multimeter to test both of these parts for continuity, a continuous electrical path present in the part. Place the temperature control thermostat sensing bulb in ice water, attach the multimeter leads to the terminals, and rotate the dial. As the dial reaches a lower setting, the continuity should be interrupted. If the thermostat tests positive for continuity at all settings, the part has shorted closed and will need to replace. The defrost thermostat will need to be tested at a temperature of 15° Fahrenheit or lower for a proper reading. If the part tests negative for continuity at this temperature, it is defective.
