Not fun the first time. Unplug the unit. There will be a plate with two screws that the thermostat is mounted to either on the right side or right front of the coil cover. Remove the two screws and pull the plate and thermostat down in one piece. Unplug the two wires from the stat and remove the plate from the stat making sure to note which way the plate and thermostat are oriented. The thin capillary from the stat runs up to the back of the coil. You have to reach your hand into the opening created by removing the plate and feel your way to the capillary entrance at the coil. You may be able to just see it through the hole. Make a good mental note of its position in there and pull the old capillary out. Measure how deep the capillary was in there and try to get that far in with the new one. I generally put a little piece of tape on the new capillary about where I want it to stop at the coil. You just want to make sure the capillary is clear of any wires and doesn't rub against anything in its routing. Reinstall is reverse of uninstall.

I have a true cooler for bottles and i dont knowhowto make it cooler


If it is a number thermostat, first check your box temp., then change the dial 1 number and check temp. in about 2-3 hours and see which direction it goes. Usually thermostats with numbers causes the temp to change very slowly so take your time and you can figure it out.

Which way do I turn the temperature dial on a true 3-door reach-in stainless steel cooler?


Numbered 1-9 - one is the warmest setting, nine is the coldest. For a cooler it should be good on 5 for a freezer 7. If it doesnt work well on those settings the thermostat is usually bad.

I own a true 2 keg beer cooler and it has recenty been not able to turn off the cooler and freezes the beer. is this a problem with the thermostat or something else?


This is probably the thermostat stuck closed and bad. Turn the tstat all the way to left or counter clock wise. The compressor should turn off.If the compressor continues to run the tstat is stuck and bad. A good replacement tstat would be Ranco # A12-1560.

The thermostat is probably stuck closed and bad. A good replacement would be a Ranco A12-1560. If its not the thermostat there may be a stuck relay on newer modes coolers.

TRUE COOLER COMPRESSOR CYCLES ON 45 SECONDS AND OFF FOR 2 MINUTES.SEEMS TO COOL FINE MAINTAINS 38 DEGREES, OTHER TRUE COOLER WE HAVE DOES NOT DO THIS...ANY SUGGESTIONS?


The unit has a temperature swing adjustment screw located behind the thermostat plate.If you remove the knob and the face plate you will see it,It can be adjusted there.It may also be the thermostat bulb is going bad or touching something and giving a false signal to the compressor.

Salad prep cooler too cold I turn the t-stat up or down compressor still running I think the t-stat is bad don't you think?


It sounds like the thermostat is "stuck closed". Try unplugging the cooler, MAKE SURE ALL POWER HAS BEEN DISCONECTED. Remove thermostat cover with thermostat on it. Carefully pull one of the wires spade connectors off the thermostat. Insulate the end of the wire you disconected with electrical tape. Now plug the cooler back in. If the compressor stays off the thermostat is the problem. Let me know if that helps. I know of a common replacement cold controll for that unit:)

turn thermostat all the way to the left to turn it off. restore power and see if it stays on and inside fan is running. Then turn thermostat to rite to turn on compressor. If the power trips when turning thermostat back on, the compressor may be bad. :(
