So what do you fucks know about fridge/freezer tstats? This tstat is for a fridge, but is in the same form factor as my upright freezer. I would just order it, but it has an extra wire and I don't know what it's for. My current one has a ground and then two wires for the relay to turn on the compressor.

Any idea what the extra wire is for?

Looks(from pic) like the blue & red are sharing a lug. Black is supply(hot) so the blue/red lug is feeding two different pieces of the circuit, most likely compressor and the fan. On the unit that was intended for. You can ignore the extra wire, but cap it off for safety ;)

Think its safe to assume that the amperage rating would be similar? This is the freezer one.

As Jehhany said, if it's triggering a relay it won't matter, since point of using a relay is to not have to run wall current around in a device. But those wires look pretty beefy - I'm thinking it's rated for as much as the original. You'll be fine.

If it's triggering a relay like you said above, the amperage rating isn't going to make one shake of a dingo's pecker worth of difference.
I dunno what this shit is. There is sealed gas in an accordion, as it warms up, it expands. That expansion closes a circuit and the compressor turns on. The whole thing looks pretty simple, so my assumption is that 120v is running through it.

That makes sense?

If this thing _is_ the relay, then it's gotta be up to the amperage rating of the appliance.

If this thing _triggers_ a relay, then just pick whatever the fuck's on offer.

120V, 12000V, doesn't matter.

So the fridge thermo has two outs?

Prolly one for fridge, one for freezer.
Nope, I pulled the part from this. Fridge only.
