    Hi,

    Our Fridge Freezer has gone wrong & it turns out to be the thermostat. The draw fronts are all knackered so don't want to spend too much on it & it seems that the thermostat for this model is around £25. I bought a cheap VS5 thermostat & have just now fitted it but am a little worried that it will not do the job! The VS5 is around 2m long & the original 526012803 (3ART) seems just over 1m. I have pushed the capillary in as far as it will go & coiled the rest up. I have fitted the wiring as per the original (3 to red, 6 to Brown, 4 to black) & the fridge/freezer is currently cooling. I couldn't see where the capillary actually ends up other than there is a tube to feed it in! I therefore wonder whether the original is designed to control the fridge temperature & not the freezer. Any thoughts? I am an Electronics Engineer by trade but can't seem to find much data about these thermostats & their pin-outs!
    I only want to keep this fridge/freezer going while we procure a new one but we are struggling to find one with sturdy draws & anough fridge & freeer space!

    All help appreciated.

    The stats usually control the freezer temp & cold air then circulates the fridge to cool it either by vents or forced air (fan in the bottom)
