Mine is attached to the end cooling fin and does work -
takes a little while for the new temp to stabilize. I have a small thermometer (
in the frig so I can tell what it has cooled down to - then adjust the
"slide" as needed. (just checked
mine for "placement"). I have
not had any problems reaching the desired temp - about 40 degrees.
I do not think the cap had anything to do with it - it will keep larger bugs out - maybe spiders which tend to make nests and prevent draining.
The sensor is supposed to be placed in the plastic
slider and moving the slider adjusts the temperature.The capillary tube of the thermostat runs from the thermostat to the fins inside the refrigerator. It senses the temperature inside the refrigerator and controls the thermostat accordingly. On the electric side the thermostat simply opens and closes the heat element circuit. The thermostat switches the gas flame between high and low flame to control the temperature on the gas side.</span>
