Small Compact fridge problems


I have a GE 4.3 compact fridge, and it will run good and then i will notice it shut off before it should be..not reaching the correct temp.

I have been told the temp control units usually go in these fridges, and this one is 1.5 yrs old.
Before i order a thermostat i want to make sure, its not the relay.

Can you tell me when a relay goes, does it click and not start at all, or can the fridge run for a few hrs , or less and then it will click off..

This is what i did, i took the two wires off the temp control and joined them together, the fridge started up and so far has been running steady for 1 hr..

I am thinking if is stays running then the temp control is bad.. if it clicks off then the relay is bad... would you agree..

Sounds like a thermostat.

Relay will make that 'clicking' sound when the contacts switch position. If it IS making that noise and NOT cooling, Then I would look at the relay.

Some thermostats will have an adjustment screw on them as well. If it's slightly out of range you can adjust it until you have the time to get a new thermostat in place.
