Finding a new cold control is in order.................  but first.....do you get continuity from the yellow wire to the gray wire with  cold control set at half way ?? looking to see if you just had a bad crimped wire connection,  black to yellow...............

If you got '0'  that means no resistance..........Reconnect the black wire to the yellow wire with a wire nut........Install the gray wire on to the overload.........It could have only been  a bad crimp from the factory...Set the cold control to mid-way....What happens???

i did as told and nothing happened! i have two temp. controls that i took from 2 mini fridge that the lines had busted so i was wondering if i could use those even though it's not the same brand. one of them is very similar to the one thats on there right now...

use the cold control that appears to be the closest...........Most cold controls have to keep the same temps., it is where the bulb is placed and the mounting styles that differ the most............. Anyway,  set the cold control on top of the unit..............near the front, put the capillary tube into the  fresh food section............... attach to the middle shelf...............................disconnect the yellow /black wires........make a jumper wire that goes from the black ( hot ) wire to the cold control........ make another wire jumper that goes from the cold control down to the overload terminal  (  remove the gray wire ) ......................................  tape the cold control up so the terminals do not touch anything.....set the cold control midway............plug in................what happens????

oooh ok this is going to be a good one! so where the compressor is i should leave all those wires as how it originally came? im dealing with the wires on the thermostat right? because i know the thermostat has a yellow and grey wire so that's what kinda confused me...and this new thermostat that i got is identical with the exception to the terminals, they are a little bit wider that the old ones so the wire connection doesnt slide in.

im just wondering if it would be a problem if i disconnect the wires from the old one and put them exactly as they were but on the new one??? like i said the only differense is the width of the metal terminals...???

Yes ...You will be putting the old thermostat wires on the new thermostat......But you want the bulb of the new t-stat inside to measure the temperature............ If the bulb will reach to the inside and the t-stat at the rear of the unit,  install  it that way............. If not, that is the reason for the longer wires/ jumpers......................
