    Espares sorted out the correct thermostat for my fridge. Fitting was easy, and the fridge is working fine now. Thank you Espares

    Exactly what I needed

    The thermostat the best price but, moreover, was reasonably easy to fit (with help from the "how to" video) and just worked - all I could ask for.

    fast response on spares

    I paid for the next day, and it was just the service I expected. The item arrived and was fitted just like the previous replacment. These stats seem to last about five years, and this one replaced one that was just over five years old.

    There are two screws under the control panel that when removed allow the panel to be lowered and the thermostat replaced.

  • Put a little lubrication (I used Vaseline) on the capillary tube and in the hole. By Peter Willems - Suffolk - 11 July 2016

    Ensure the capillary has no kinks in it and fully defrost the fridge for several days to ensure there is no ice restricting the capillary mounting tube.

  • Not sure about the RL63P, but I've just fixed the thermo in my RL78P. PARAMOUNT - SWITCH FRIDGE OFF AND UNPLUG IT FROM THE MAINS!!! Decant everything plus the shelves - you will need the room. On the right hand side just above midpoint is a lozenge-shaped housing which contains lamp/thermo and lamp switch. To gain access to the thermo, locate the cleverly hidden fixing screw - there's a small grey prise-out disc just to the right of the control knob. Unscrew that and the housing should release when you draw it back - gently! There are locating tabs on the housing which slide into slots in the lining. Unscrew the retaining nut from the thermo spindle and release the thermo. Now make a diagram of the wiring connectors on both the thermo and the lamp switch. Disconnect all leads to these components (no need to touch the actual lamp connectors). You WILL need this diagram when re-connecting new thermo. Now unscrew the retaining screws on the freezing panel at the back of the fridge - be VERY CAREFUL when you pull it forward and to the left to give you access to the thermocouple end. The thick pipe attached to the panel contains the coolant fluid. The pipe is flexible enough to withstand moderate movement. There should be two screws and a plastic fillet securing the t'couple to the panel. Unscrew the screws (remembering to keep the screws in a container - easily lost under the fridge!!). The new t'couple can be bent into a U just like the defective one. Fit the new thermostat by reversing the removal instructions. Good luck - patience is a virtue! By dreeks55 - - 12 July 2009
  • The thermostat is located in the same housing aas the fridge light. Once you have unplugged the fridge, remove the 1 (or possibly) 2 screws that hold the light housing to the side of the fridge. Once released you will see the thermostat. By danny2873 - South Wales - 11 July 2009

Answer this question

This is nigh impossible with my fridge (different model though looks very similar); after about 30 min hard effort I have rolled it back about 5 cm and partially destroyed it. Even if I get it off I'm doubtful it will be reuseable. Is it necessary and why does the new thermostat not come with it ready fitted? It must only cost one or two pennies being a small bit of plastic

    The capillary 'sheath' is usually a heat shrink type insulation that can be almost impossible to remove. Either order an original thermostat with the covering like this or find another suitable covering.
