    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.

    Hi, I have a Hotpoint Fridge Freezer (model HM315NI). The Fridge part has started icing everything and am assuming that the thermostat is defunct. Tried setting the thermostat dial at both extremes and switched off the unit at the mains for a few hours hoping it would kick start the thermostat but nothing worked.

    Is there anything else I can do to make sure that the thermostat is faulty before I order a replacement?

    Also, followed your utube instructions and here are the key reference numbers………

    model = HM315NI; Cod = 81402080000; TYPE = KCM02; SN = 612140107

    I want to order this online & am a novice, would you be able to identify the exact part number for the thermostat of my f/f?

    Thank you
