   Fridge & Freezer Thermostats

The thermostat in a fridge or freezer is the component that controls when the compressor (motor) of the fridge, freezer of fridge freezer cuts in and out on older models. It does this by having a phial, which looks like a thick piece of wire attached to the wall of the fridge or freezer or the evaporator that detects the temperature in that one spot and, the compressor is cut in and out based on that temperature.

Older analogue thermostats were generally very simple devices that simply have an on and off switch in them and often a live feed for any internal lighting. They are very simple devices. Due to that, when they go faulty, you will usually find that the fridge, fridge freezer or freezer will either not cool at all as the thermostat is not switching on or, it will just over-freeze as the thermostat remains closed and keeps the compressor running all the time.

A far more in-depth article on a fridge, fridge freezer and freezer thermostats is available from this link

Newer electronic control systems use what is known as a thermistor, which is essentially a small resistor that has a resistance value that responds to changes in temperature. Normally these are NTC (Negative Temperature Coefficient) type thermistors that have a resistance value that drops as the temperature rises.

These newer systems are more accurate but still do suffer from the occasional failure and the resistance readings have to be correct or the set temperature for the appliance will not be correct.

You can find out more about fridge and freezer thermistors in this article on the main website.

Before embarking on repairing your own fridge freezer we would suggest that you read our basic fridge and freezer fault finding guide and, if your fridge freezer is a frost free model please also see our guide to understanding frost free refrigeration as well as the companion article which you can find from this link.

Brandt Spares

Brandt spare partsBrandt was a part of the Fagor Brandt Group that was the fifth largest appliance maker in Europe and also owned the De Dietrich brand among others until the entire group collapsed in late 2013.

More information on the company can be found in this article about Brandt on the site

  Brandt Spare Parts

Since the group entered into administration spare parts have become increasingly difficult to obtain and, often very expensive what they can be sourced. Price hikes on the fly as it were are also commonplace as supplies diminish.

Sadly they also produced many products for other companies as well such as CDA, Diplomat, Hygena and many others and owners often find themselves at a dead end when trying to find spare parts. We do the best we can to source as much as possible and, at as low a price as we can find.

To look up parts the model number at the very least is required.

After you have that you should be able to find any Brandt parts we've already listed or, if not or you can't find what you're looking for please contact us on spares@ukwhitegoods.co.uk or use the Helpdesk ticket system for assistance.

Please do not call as the guys on the ordering line will not be able to assist you fast enough, finding parts takes time, it's not something suited to doing over the phone. And, over the phone we can't send you images, parts blowouts or any other info which may well help you greatly be sure the part you're ordering is correct.

  Delivery

We are going to get any part/s you order to you as fast as we possibly can.

We use a variety of means to do that but we also give you, the customer, the choice of how fast you want the transit time to be as well as the features and convenience levels that suit you on delivery so, there are options. There is a lot of information here on how we do this and explanation of the choice you have as well as the impact of each in speed and cost as we are very open and transparent.

Orders placed outwith our normal business hours will not be shipped until the next working day and subject to stock availability. Please be aware that we show availability and that we do not display live stock levels online.

What we do is give an average here based on where parts are and typically take to ship as well as an average of transit times based on how people order parts so these can vary depending largely on the shipping method that we allow you to select depending on your own individual needs.

The estimated normal time that an item will take to reach you (excluding weekends and public holidays) is indicated on every listing at the top of the listing in orange with the truck next to it, an explanation of these is as follows:

1 to 6 Days: Normally a UK stock item and usually dispatched the same or next working day but some items may take a little longer depending on where the stock is.

1 to ** Days: Usually a UK/EU stocked item but may have a longer lead time, for clarification of the time please contact us before ordering and we will advise further if required.

* to ** Days: Variable lead times that are based on normal order supply times, often parts that do not have a “1 to“ at the start will ordinarily be factory or custom order items and we would ask that you please allow the time indicated for your order to arrive with you. Please note that these items are specially ordered upon request that is not normally stocked therefore cannot be ordinarily returned, this does not affect your statutory rights.

Again, please note that your chosen delivery method may affect the delivery time to both shorten and lengthen that delivery time and that these estimates apply to UK mainland orders only. The faster delivery method that you choose, the lower on that estimated delivery time you will likely receive the items ordered.

If you need clarification or a more accurate lead time please contact us for assistance on that and we will do our utmost to provide that as our estimated lead times are based on normal stock availability, average lead times, average shipping times and this can vary depending on shipping methods etc.

Our standard delivery charges are quoted online when you place an order on the checkout page and are determined by weight, size and method so can alter based on those parameters.

Our estimated delivery times do not apply to international or offshore orders, only to UK mainland addresses and that delivery times to more rural areas may vary depending on the service used.

Delivery times can vary at times of very high volumes, such as Christmas period and also due to bad weather etc and at such times deliveries, regardless of service used, may not happen as normal.

  Order Transit Times

If the item you have ordered is in stock and the order is placed before 3.00pm Monday to Friday then we will endeavour to dispatch the order on the same day. Subsequent delivery times are usually between 1-3 working days dependant on the service you have chosen, the time your order is placed and stock availability.

If an item is required for a guaranteed next day delivery please contact us in advance to check that this is possible

Please note that the times given can be subject to availability, however, more than 98% of all orders are delivered on or faster than the estimated times.

Economy courier Service
