The primary reason I bought this item from this vendor was that was advertised as a Whirlpool part SEVEN times in the ad: "Whirlpool 2198282 Thermostat for Refrigerator by Whirlpool", repeated this two more times, and then said "Genuine Whirlpool Replacement Part".

In fact, the package in which it came says, "ERP exact replacement parts, ER 2198282 Cold Control".

My refrigerator was 48 degrees, I had to do something, so I carefully installed this ERP part following a step by step video found elsewhere on the net. I set the control on 3, the mid way point and was pleased that it cooled quickly.

BUT, it went down, down to below 32 degrees. So, I turned the control down ... down ... down. The control is now at its warmest setting, 1, and the temp still remains at 32 or colder (this over a couple of days).

I'm going to try to get my money back from Amazon. BEWARE.

This thermostat matched to original one exactly and with the internet supplying a "how-to" video, it was a piece of cake to install. As expected, it required a couple of days for me to accurately recalibrate the fridge temp, but that was just a matter of checking it frequently and tweaking the dial in small increments until it was just right.

Yes, you have to be careful not to kink the capillary tube during installation, but that's not as fragile as it might look. Just use common sense.

If I had any little thing to nit-pick, it was shipped in a padded envelope rather than a sturdy box. With the somewhat potentially fragile capillary, it invited damage. But, luckily, this one survived unscathed and is working absolutely accurately and perfectly since it was installed months ago.

The Kenmore fridge we've had for 19 years quit cooling one day and we almost lost all we had due to spoilage. We immediately went and purchased a replacement but, in the mean time I did some online research and determined that the thermostat may be the fix. I ordered and received the thermostat in 2 days. Removing the old and replacing the new part was fairly simple. Total time: 20 minutes. Look online for how-to videos. Bottom line: The old refrigerator is working GREAT and is now the one I use in the garage. Total cost of the fix was approx. $30.

I bought this thermostat after having problem with my fridge. It was shipped fast and without any issues. I followed this youtube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JAQlvBi1sKs to replace the old one. It took me about 1 hour to perform the repair. My fridge has been working well ever since. Time will tell how long it'll work. If it's a genuine Whirlpool replacement part per the claim, I don't see why it couldn't last 10, 15 years. A repair service would have cost me at least $300. Very happy about the purchase so far.

I replaced my thermostat last year with another brand and a few weeks ago it started acting up, problem with the other thermostat I bought is the fridge needed turned almost all the way to left. This thermostat I set it in the middle just like the factory one and it cools perfect, like it was made for my fridge. Replacing a thermostat takes about 15 minutes with simple tools(mainly a small socket).

I bought this part in August, 4 to 5 months ago. It quit working a week or two ago. When I installed the thermostat I had to dial it in all the way to the left below the 1 on the dial to keep everything from freezing and it worked fine until now. This is not a Whirlpool part it is a "ERP exact replacement parts" part no. ER2198202.

There are a couple of Youtube videos out there that will walk you through installing one of these. It's easy to crimp the temperature probe tube, so make sure you know what you are doing. Mine works great. It saved us having to buy another refrigerator.

Replaced the broken old thermostat in my Whirlpool. Works fine for the last 2 months. The only minor issue is that the arrow on the thermostat does not line up correctly. But as long as it is working satisfactorily, I am ok with this minor inconvience.
