My very old Admiral refrigerator refrig thermostat froze up.

Customer Question
My very old Admiral...

My very old Admiral refrigerator refrig thermostat froze up. There is one for the refri and for the freezer. There is still cool air into the freezer. I feel some cool air coming through a vent into the refrigerator. Is this cool air tapped off the freezer? If so, how does the refrig thermostat regulate cool air in the refrig?

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of the fridge? And can you guesstimate how old is it?

Admiral It says ADS HMG 191340. The appliance center told me a new refrig switch is $100.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Actually, I took out the therm. which may have been a mistake. I did manage to get the freezer working with the broken therm They told me the techs wont touch it now. I may have to buy a used for $400 So stupid me. They were going to charge $69 for service call, and over $100 for fixing the therm.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Does this refrig vent some of the freezer air to the refrig? The freezer is blowing cold air now.
