This universal part does not suit most Westinghouse, newer Kelvinator, Fisher & Paykel or some Hoover refrigerators. If used on these brands then after a period of time they will build up ice and not defrost properly as the characteristics of the thermostat are different. We have a different part listed here, here or here to suit most Westinghouse & Kelvinator models and keep thermostats listed here to suit many F&P models.
Some of the above brands must use the original thermostat to operate correctly. Just because a part looks identical does not mean that it is the same. If unsure, contact us with your model number.
