    If you removed the moulding you've opened a can of worms...

    #1 you cant even see or feel where the sleeve is for the control capilary . they have it up against the top back wall . of course its full of frozen poped open beer bottles they are open and they want it fixed . so i cant pull it out to remove the doors then pull the top and get it in that way . any other true has a two screw acess and 123 you change the control . i ended up putting in a pig tail style in the coil

    Now your getting the hang of it LOL
    I don't remember it being that hard actually
    PITA Maybe but its just the side panel and a reach around.
    The prep tables are harder IMO with all the mayo and snit over head and that cover with the shelves and supports

    You haven't worked on your fair share yet or you'd think differently, can't stand True boxes , but they keep me in business

    I realize this post is very old, but just recently a few weeks ago, I changed three thermostats on three True back-bar (TBB model) coolers: IN ONE DAY!! Not sure why True t-stats always seem to get erratic and freeze product. When I replace, first customer removes all product. Then I replace t-stat. I don't reinstall in the copper tube in the evaporator. On this particular model, I drop the evap cover enough to get to the front of the evaporator, the insert the A12-700 capillary directly into the evaporator coil (after either folding it up, or coiling it up into a pretty little pigtail.)

    In the last 2 days I have also replaced three True thermostats with A12-700's, but they have been upright Reachins (t-49, t-19, gdm-49). Tried installing in the copper tube, and it seems somehow, the copper tube "insulates" the capillary and slows down the response a lot. So it the box would get too cold (~30*f), cycle off, then not cycle on until too warm (~42*f). It responds much better folded or coiled up and installed directly into the fins: consistent 37*f cut-in, 33*f cut-out (box temperatures, not evap temps). AND it's a lot easier to install them this way. I think from now on I will always do it this way.

    I remember reading a post about the copper tube on True's breaking loose so they don't make good contact, and this causes issues. Or as my service manager says "Yeah, True t-stats suck."

    The box will behave a much differently when it has product in it.
