TheRepairGuru: You can also manually close the defrost thermostat by using a can of compressed air dust cleaner. Hold the can upside down and carefully spray the thermostat to instantly super cool it.

Farmer John: Like so many have said - this would only work on a thermostat that switches at the ice water temp or higher. To actually test it is necessary to determine the switching temp for your specific thermostat and take it below that temp.

Matt Martinez: My thermostat has continuity whether hot or freezing cold. Is that a sign of a bad t-stat? Ice build up in fridge and freezer. It's a tri fridge with two condensers.

Shahzaib Khan: does window ac thermostat works the same way?i checked the thermostat after pulling it out of the unit but i dint put it in water i just checked it as it is theres continuity if i rotate dial to low temp side but after certain high temp theres no contnuity how can i make sure that my thermostat is okay or not?

Saiyed Abid Ali: very nices ha

Bubba Smith: I replaced the cold control on a whirlpool s×s.
Even with it turned down past 1, it freezes the fridge. What to do ?

Russ Jackson: This is a great video on exactly how NOT test a bi-metal aka (defrost thermostat). Ice water is likely not cold enough. The best way to test a defrost thermostat is to get it below freezing.

oli ylo: I have the same problem, however I don't see any fan in my freezer compartment, it looks like everything is sealed.

محمد بركات: كهراب

62T-bird Man: What if I have continuity through the thermostat, and heater but the heater never gets hot? Could the thermostat be stuck closed?

P. K. Esu: the fridge would start normally it starts to cool but would stop after about 5min
then the compressor would be off for a long time but when comes back on it only last about a miniute then stops again for along time. it continues like this and there is no cooling.
any help

Ivan Velasquez: I have a Kenmore elite refrigerator and the top freezer is not cooling enough, can someone please help me to figure out what can be the problem ?

MagicGuitara: Thanks for the explanation.
there are two Thermostat in my fridge (Amanna)' one is L55-35F and L90-45F. why two?

Sanbok Restaurant: hi i ask for there have water that cold and worms i mean hot wich tip water tell me

scooter12368: I'm seeing "close" and "opened" in words written. What should i look for on the continuity meter (i have numbers, no audio sound meter) to determine if the thermostat is closed and or opened?
thank you.

SavageNorthGarden: 30F is below freezing and a glass of ice water is only at freezing. I'm no expert, but I think this test might be finding a lot of thermostats that close at 30F bad when they are not. After pondering this I put mine in a working freezer to make sure it was well below 30F and I think others might want to try this. Just sayin'

Afif Baz: I have a kenmore side by side. The freezer dial must be set above 58 for the freezer to work. Any setting below that causes the contents to thaw out. Also, the fridge side is warm even if I set it at the highest setting. Any suggestions ?

TheRayMaynard: The BIG problem with this is that many of these thermostats must be colder than 32F to close. Mine closes at 20F and opens at 40F. In order to test one of these you have to add a lot of salt to the ice water in order to drop the temperature to below the close point of the thermostat, otherwise you are going to be replacing a possibly good thermostat.

Polgár Attila: My thermostat L15-21C
What this charge type?
thanks
