Fatman,

I have yet to replace the fridge gasket (I can't find any breaches of the freezer gasket) and the compressor isn't too hot.  Well, I can keep my whole hand on it for 20+ seconds without any smoke, screaming or any real pain, so I assume that means it's okay (previously, you mentioned touching it without getting burned).

Tonight or tomorrow (depending on how tired I am tonight, lol) I am going to open 'er back up and check the defrost heater as Pegi recommended and also see if I can find a blockage between the two compartments.

At what temperature(s) should the thermometer perform its functions?  I noticed when I was installing the new one it mentioned 25° and 50°,  Does that mean it closes the circuit at 50° and opens it at 25°?  Or is it 25° in the freezer and 50° in the fresh compartment?
