No
Expert:  Jamie_2013 replied 1 year ago.
Unplug the unit for 2-3 hours and let it defrost real good. Plug unit back up and if it don't cool properly then, you will need to replace the thermostat. Make sure also condenser coils are clean and not dirty as well.

Is the defrost thermostat the one I need to replace or is there another thermostat?

I bought and install a new thermostat but it still does not get cold enough.
I checked the compressor and it is hot to the touch.
What next?
