The freezer stopped cooling. Food had thawed on top, was partially frozen in the middle, and was still frozen lower down. It was still kinda cold but but ice cream near the top was liquid. We through out what we had thawed too much.
Compressor was not running. Power light showed it had power. I gave it a good slap around the thermostat dial and the compressor started. It's been running several hours and is at 23 degrees.
Is there any chance I might be able to clean some contacts in the thermostat or am I never gonna be able to trust it without replacing the thermostat? I'm worried that it might be difficult to get the new sensing bulb into wherever it goes.
The thermostat is a wr09x10053.

For 25 bucks and peace of mind I would replace it.

The compressor has stopped around 2 or 3 degrees and I noticed it running again at 5 degrees. I'm gonna watch it for a while.

For now, It's working. I have no idea where & how the temperature bulb is mounted. I fear that its difficult to replace. At some point when I get around to removing some panels and laying on the floor to look and see what's involved, or when it fails again, I'll replace the thermostat, unless I find a loose wire or something.
