Hi what is the problem you seem to be having? freezer ok but fridge is warm?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
The thermostat is located at the top center of my refrigerator. If I can remove it, I can try cleaning it (I have done this with air conditioners) or i can replace it. I just want to know how to remove the thermostat from the refrigerator.

Hi looking at the Schematic which is not that good it looks like there is a screw in the side that holds it to a bracket.

Just to let you know your problem may not be related to the thermostat.

I looked for the side screw, nothing there. I just called a plumber neighbor who will fix it for me. I do thak you for the try. The plumber said that this is a very old unit and we should be thinking about replacing it.

If you see frost on the rear panel inside the back of the freezer the problem is not with the thermostat.
