The compressor pumps the refrigerant through the sealed system to produce the cooling effect in the fridge. Other than an air fan, it's the only component you will hear, when the fridge is cooling. The control thermostat turns the compressor on and off to maintain the set temperature.
Before you replace the thermostat check the thermostat first its number 24 and it could also be the defrost timer as well number 12 so don't order till these two parts are checked to make sure which one is the problem.
