    Hello all

    I’ve got an old (ish) Husky Beer Fridge that isn’t cooking as it should , there isn’t any temperature control in the. Cabinet , so I’d hazard a guess & say there was a Thermostat somewhere that’s not working , will it be an easy fix ?? It sounds like the Compressor is running fine

    so is it worth fixing

    whoops is not cooling NOT Cooking !!!!

    cheers

    Phil

    I have a similar set up, is there a dial at the back? Reached from behind the cooler.

    If compressor running it is not the thermostat. I used a standard fridge for my beer, and used an external thermostat set to 19.5°C, plus a heater if it drops below 19°C I find on starting the brew motor runs a fair bit first day, then hardly runs, fridge for drinking beer/wine should be set to 12°C however I prefer it cooler at 4°C, standard fridge setting. For the beer to drink I use a freezer with an external thermostat.

    When I started you could not get ready made thermostats so used STC-1000 (heating and cooling) and MH1210A (heating or cooling) but today the InkBird 308 is available ready made.

    Hi , yes pulled the Fridge out today , it’s got a control at the back , but that doesn’t seem to be working , bar when you switch it off , then the Compressor stops working

    So I had a look on Flee Bay & ordered a new part , it’s only £3-65 from China so I though I’d give that a try & see what happens , easy enough to fit , 2 screws, 3 push on terminals & install the probe into the Compartment. We’ll see what happens

    cheers

    Whilst you are waiting for the part to arrive you can try laying it on its side for 24 hours. Apparently it lets the gas/liquid find its way back together.
    Not sure if it applies to morden fridges though.
