    was about to change the thermostat on my Servis (about 12 year old model) frost free fridge (no freezer compartment type) I had noted the position of 3 existing wires Brown red & black on the spade fittings and simple replacement should have been no problemo. The replacement has a different configuration for the spades and has numbers 6, 4 & 3 I do not wish to do a trial and error wiring in case I break the thermostat. Can you tell me which wire goes to what number?

    Hi. We have an Indesit fridge in our mobile home that was freezing food and liquids. I removed the thermostat and took photo of the wiring and now can’t find the photo on my phone. Its the six pin thermostat from a fridge model IN-E 160 G. Can you offer any advice. Also do you have a salad draw for this model. Its the one with a quarter taken out to accommodate the motor. do have this item can you tell me a price. Found your video very educational but as mine us different model I wanted to check. The fridge has a freezer below it but they are seperate larder units.The thermostat sent as appropriate for this model was K59L1978 which we are told is a Genuine part. Thanks in advance for.your kind assistance.
    Tony Down’s.
