I have a kitchenaid wine cooler that has been referenced in other threads multiple times. i have used your forum to discover the thermostat is the problem.

However, it seems it has already been replaced once with a danfoss 2767-wc instead of the WP4344659 OEM part. the danfoss part is very much cheaper. are these thermostats for lower end wine chillers mostly interchangeable? is there an easy way to search for compatible thermostats?

thanks.

That is a good question, but I know know the answer.

Hopefully another tech. or member can shed some light on this for us.

Thanks Jake. Maybe I'll just buy the intended part. I was surprised to find the other thermostat but im not the original owner

I doubt it. Their specifications would depend on the exact design of the product involved. I do not know (and very much doubt) they're 'all the same' either in temperature specifications or physical size or mounting requirements.

as an update, the oem part was shipped and was the same danfoss 2767-wc part that i had listed above. i talked to the previous owner and he said his buddy at an appliance repair store sold it to him for under $40. did the company i bought it from send me a knock off piece or just have an outrageous markup?
