I pulled out the meter and checked the thermostat (the one that has the temp. adjustment knob in front) and it is showing less than 1.0 ohm (fridge unplugged).
Does this mean that my thermostat is bad or good??? confused...
thank you very much for the quick response...
It means that your thermostat is closed.
When the thermostat is closed it will provide power to the compressor so it runs.
If the wine cellar is cold enough the thermostat should be open.
As with anything refrigerator unit with a thermostat/cold control such as your wine cellar you could check the probe on the end of the thermostat to see it if looks like it's in the correct place.
For example the thermostat probe looked like it fell out of the clips that hold it in place. I have never personally worked on a unit such as this, but if everything looks like it's in place the next step I would take is to replace the thermostat.
