Fridge Repairs

On This Page We Describe The Symptoms Of A Very Common Fridge Problem.

 Please read this page to see if it describes the symptoms of your Fridge Fault.   

 Does Your Fridge Have The Following Symptoms? 


"All the food in the fridge is warm, and, when the fridge is plugged in, the internal fridge light comes on when the door is open, but there is no sound at all coming from the fridge."  


If so, then you almost certainly need this replacement fridge thermostat.  

This is a Quality Genuine British Made "Ranco" Fridge Thermostat, (not a cheap Chinese copy, which may last for a year or two if you're lucky, before needing to be replaced again).


This "Ranco" fridge thermostat is designed to be used as a replacement in virtually any larder fridge.   


A larder fridge is one that doesn't have a freezer compartment at the top. Most larder fridges are the free standing type that fit under a worktop, but this thermostat can also be used on the taller ones and on the built-in (integrated) ones.   


If you have a Fridge/Freezer (rather than a fridge) 

with these Symptoms, Please CLICK HERE


The above "Ranco" fridge thermostat is used by leading makes. 

These type of thermostats are used as originals by the vast majority of fridge manufacturers such as Hotpoint, Electrolux, Creda, Zanussi, Lec, Candy, AEG, Hoover, Servis, Beko, LG, Scandinova (not the Scandinova LFA374 Models), and many others.   


So it is very likely that, if you use this thermostat, you will actually be replacing 'like for like', which makes fridge repairs so much easier.


Buy with Confidence.


If you do have the fridge problem as described above, then this fridge thermostat will almost certainly get it working again.


Please Note 

If you hear any sound at all coming from the fridge such as low level 'humming noises' or 'clicking', then the thermostat isn't the cause of the above fridge fault.  


This fridge thermostat comes with a twelve month

manufacturers' guarantee.  




We will give friendly email and/or phone advice to all buyers (if needed). We run our own domestic refrigeration repair business and we are carrying out these sort of fridge repairs on a daily basis. 





Fitting this fridge thermostat is straight forward. If you can change a plug on an electrical appliance, you will be able to carry out this straight forward fridge repair. You only need basic tools (screwdrivers and pliers) and no soldering is required.  But, to help you further, when you order your fridge thermostat, you will be given access a set of detailed fitting instructions.

We also have virtually every Genuine Original fridge thermostat available (if the manufacturers are still making it). So if you would prefer to use the original manufacturer’s thermostat, but still get access to our instructions and advisory service, please contact us by phone or email, with the make and model number of your fridge or fridge/freezer and we will let you know the price. We literally have over a thousand different fridge thermostats available, and for this reason we are unable to list them on our website for online purchase at the moment, but we are working it. By the way, our prices are rarely beaten by other online suppliers. 


In addition to the Fitting Instructions, it is our aim to also give you a Top Class Email and/or Telephone Back-up Service. Many (perhaps most) of our customers have never had a go at a fridge repair before. So we don't expect you to know all the technical terms when you contact us. So don't be afraid to ask us any questions, before or after you buy the thermostat. Your enquiry will be welcomed, and we will give you as much help as you need. If you read some of the comments (below) that we have received from our customers, you will get some idea of the friendly service we try to provide. 


All of the comments below are genuine email messages we have received over the years. We have literally hundreds of similar comments going back over the last 7 - 8 years. We keep these emails on record, and any of these can be verified by you if you wish. 


Here are some of the comments.

Just a brief message to say a big thank-you for the excellent service you are operating. My fridge thermostat arrived as promised, the morning after I spoke to you, took about 20 mins to fit, thanks to great instructions, and ancient Lec fridge is humming away again. Many thanks, I shall do my best to publicise you.

First class, friendly service. The fridge thermostat arrived within 24 hrs. Written instructions AOK plus telephone query answered. Until I visited your web site, I thought I had to buy a new fridge-freezer.

The new thermostat is identical to the original one, and was easy to install. Must have saved me at least ?200. Very glad I found your website! Thanks again, very much.  

Keith S.         London         24/5/08 


Just wanted to say thanks and that my fridge is now working fine. The fridge thermostat fitting instructions were spot on. The wife wanted to buy a new fridge so you saved me a few pounds which I can spend on something else. Regards

Good morning to you, the thermostat arrived yesterday morning and was easy 

to fit (Thanks to the easy to understand info on your website). I wanted to say a big "thank you" for operating such a good service, some suppliers go the extra mile to support their customers, you are one of those that do, I as a customer very much appreciated your efforts. I will broadcast your site to anyone I hear of that need fridge repairs. Thanks again and best regards.

Thank you for sending the fridge thermostat, ordered by phone Monday pm, through my letter box 8.40 am Tuesday! following your Comprehensive fitting Instructions received by E Mail, the thermostat was fitted easily, Thank you again for this excellent Service. Regards  

Ian G.   Cirencester  29/5/09 


I wish all suppliers took this much trouble to explain the ins and outs on their website and pick up the phone to help decode the numbers on the old stat. I wish my fridge would break down more often just so I could experience the customer service again!  

Peter C.  Solihull         27/8/09 


My friend and I fixed the thermostat fine- all done in 20 mins! Girl Power!! They were great instructions. Thanks for all your help.
