In this regard, how does a gas fridge work?
A propane fridge has a sealed network of tubes and chambers holding water, ammonia and hydrogen gas. A propane flame heats a chamber holding a solution of water and ammonia until the liquid boils. The ammonia gas rises to another chamber, the condenser, where it cools back into a liquid.
Likewise, can refrigerator work without thermostat? You can run a fridge without a thermostat. A thermostat is nothing more than an on/off switch for the compressor. It goes one when the temp reaches the point you set it at. And goes off, generally, 2 to 3 degree below that point.
Accordingly, how does a thermostat work in a refrigerator?
When the air inside the refrigerator is at the desired temperature, the thermostat stops the flow of electricity to the compressor. When the thermostat senses too much heat, it allows electricity to flow, activating the compressor. In most commercial refrigerators, the thermostat has a capillary tube filled with gas.

- The first signs of low gas; your food starts to freeze up in the fridge section of your refrigerator.
- The second sign; the fridge is developing a ice buildup on the condenser plate and a faint smell is present.
- Big block of ice is forming in one corner of the refrigerator and freezer section is making too much ice.
