Refrigerator Safety Thermostat

This little booger is called a bi-metal or thermostat.  It consists of two different metals fused together with different expansion characteristics when cold.  This causes the metal to bend to create a switch contact.
These are installed on most refrigerator evaporators to make sure the refrigerator does not overheat during the defrost cycle.  
As with most appliances.safety is very important.  Our Boise appliance repair customers need to feel safe if a malfunction in their refrigerator, washer, dryer, stove, should occur.
