Sorry, we couldn't find any existing installation instruction that matched.
Thermostat ceased to function. Fridge very cold.
I removed control knobs and a couple of screws and forced the assembly down enough to remove the old thermostat, and insert the new one. Lucky me it was a identical replacement item. Job took about an hour.

Refrigerator cools ok but freezer does'nt
For model number RTT1900DAM

Hi Harvey, thank you for your question. When you are having temperature problems in your freezer, there are a few parts that could cause the issue. You can use a multi meter to test most of the parts. Make sure you cut power to your appliance before doing any repairs or tests. First you should test your defrost thermostat. Place the thermostat in ice cold water for 2-3 minutes after removing it from your appliance. It should be reading 0 ohms to be working correctly. Another part to check would be your defrost heater. Remove it from the appliance. It should be reading anywhere between 0 - 50 ohms to be working. The other part to check would be your defrost timer as well. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

Hi Frank, Thank you for your question. If your refrigerator is too cold, there are some parts that you will need to check to see which one is causing the issue. You will need to check the cold control thermostat, the defrost timer, the control knob and the capacitor. We have included a link that you may reference on how to check some of these parts. Once you have determined the part you need, please feel free to call customer service. We are open 7 days a week and anyone will be happy to assist you. We look forward to hearing from you!
