Hi, my fridge will cool then shut off and come back on intermittently. Throughout the day I might have to turn the control knob off and turn it back up so it will turn back on and cool again. I was thinking this might be the thermostat but want to confirm as parts aren't returnable.

Hi Marty,

Yes, its the temperature control thermostat that's gone bad.

Here's the temperature control thermostat for your model you can order:
WP2204605 Thermostat


Unplug the refrigerator first!

Here's the parts diagram for your model:

Its #13, the console#12 just drops down once you remove the screws#14, then pull the thermostat knob#22 off, then you can change it, you have to route the thermostat sensor tube the same way as the old one is routed.

Let us know how it goes.
