    Hi Darrell, Thank you for your question. There is a video on our website that you can reference on how to install the thermostat. The refrigerator in the video may not show exactly like the one you have, but it will give you a general idea on how to install the part. You will find the video under part number PS470790. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

    Where is the temperature control thermostat located on this refrigerator.
    For model number ET1MTKXKQ01
    Hello Larry, thank you for your question. The temperature control thermostat, PartSelect Number: PS11739602, for that unit is on the ceiling of the fridge behind the control knob where you set the temperature in the fridge. I hope this helps.

    Mod. # tt21akxkq06 part#wp2204605 how you know if it is damaged or is not working by looking at it because what i'm looking at where the wires connect to it...doesn't look like is burnt?
    For model number 4692853238
    Hi Angel, Thank you for your inquiry. To verify if this part is faulty you will need to test it with an ohms/multimeter. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

    Hi. Refrigerator fan is working constantly but freezer and fridge are too warm. Freezer is not freezing anything and refrigerator is warm. Will this part fix my problem?
    For model number ET1MHKXMQ07
    Hello David, Thank you for the question. We suggest testing the Temperature Control Thermostat, the Capacitor and Start-Device Combination on the compressor with a multi meter to check for continuity. We hope this helps.

        Faulty thermostat
        My refrigerator is approximately seven years old (date of manufacture: 2001). I had come home twice in the last month to find that it had not been running for several hours (ice melted, milk spoiled, etc.) but it would start running again if I twisted the thermostat knob. So, I ordered a new thermostat. First I removed the 1/4" hex screw that held the plastic thermostat housing in place (it screws up into the top of the refrigerator compartment). Then I removed the plastic thermostat knob and slid the old thermostat out of the housing. I then disconnected the wires one-by-one from the old thermostat and connected them to the new one so I could be certain they were all connected correctly. Finally, I pulled the plastic sheathing off the old sensor wire, slid it onto the new one and popped the wire back into place. Slide the thermostat back into the housing, screw the housing back into the top of the refrigerator compartment, replace the plastic thermostat knob, and the job is done.

        Freezer would not maintain cold temperature.
        First, pulled knob off ot thermostat. Then, lowered control panel housing thermostat by unscrewing one screw. Removed old thermostat after taking off three wires. Replaced with new thermostat, secured wires, and screwed control panel to top of refrigerator. That's all it took. Challenge was finding the nut driver to loosen screw.

        refrigerator not always cooling
        After discovering I could give the thermostat box a rap with my hand and get it to start the fridge I got online at your site and found others were doing the same, before replacing the thermostat. I ordered the part from you and received it the next day! I used a long neck nut driver to remove the one screw holding the thermo box in place and pliers to unplug the three wires on the thermo unit. After removing the control knob it slides right out. I unwound the temp sensor wire and tried to shape it like the old one before installing(making this sensor fit like the old one takes a little juggling). Then hooked the wires on the new unit that you sent and the fridge started working again flawlessly. Big savings!

        Intermittent performance, then Frig. quit completely.
        Hesitated for a month.
        Bought part most likely to have failed.
        Almost instant delivery (as always).
        Put in part in 15 minutes (including taking cover off).
        Turn frig. on. First nothing, then in a few minutes it cranks up -- oh, how beautiful. It's been working perfectly ever since.
        Thanks for being great help!

        Stopped cooling
        Repair man that looked at it said it was the thermostat and that he would order the part. Waited two weeks with no word, so I ordered the part on line, got it the next day and installed it. The only hard part of the installation was getting to the three screws (located vertically in top of refrigerator section) to remove them. Simple three wire clip on changed unit. Total time took about 5 minutes. Refrigerator started cooling when plugged back in. Unfortunately, cooling again stopped within a day, so the original problem was more extensive than just the thermostat (so much for the service call diagnosis). Thoroughly pleased with part ordering, would do it again.
