My fridge stopped cooling - compressor was always off - so I tested if the thermostat could be the culprit by bypassing it - bang, compressor powered on. So I bought a new thermostat.
It is not looking identical to the previous one although it is listed as the official spare part.
I plugged all connection as in the old one (I pictured it) and compressor started pumping... forever. Fridge temperature went -8C and everything froze. Whilst, the internal light went off also when the door was open.
I thought that I probably connected the cables to the wrong connectors - so that when the fridge senses too cold, it stop powering... ehm, the light.
Still, I can't get around it. I own a multimeter. How could I use it to test what are the proper connections so that the thermostat will stop powering the compressor rather than the light?
Assuming that my idea about those connections is right, and it could be not.
