So the temperature controller on my old Zenith chest freezer finally kicked the bucket. I had a repairman out and he was able to swap in a fridge temperature controller and got the compressor going but obviously it kicks off at a lower temperature so it won’t exactly work. He then called back to let me know they don’t make the temperature controllers for my freezer any more. What I’m wondering is that if I can’t get the exact one for this freezer is it possible to get a different one that will still work even if it’s not the exact same make as my old one? Does anyone know what I might be able to do?

Attached are some photos of my freezer.

Hello,
They offer a variety of universal thermostats for refrigerators and freezers.. getting the right one may take a bit of research but you should be able to locate one that works. Just use Google and search for "universal freezer thermostat" I found several options but again might take a lot of clicks and a good bit of reading but you should be able to locate something that works for you
Good Luck!

Thanks for the advice! I found a temperature controller and it seems to work but I am wondering, if the probe is really long what should I do with the excess? Should I cut the probe so that there is none or just leave it coiled up?

Thanks!

Hello,

No you cant cut the probe it will ruin the thermostat.. dont worry about the extra length and if you coil it up be careful if the probe kinks it is ruined
Glad to hear it is working
