[Q] MC16c thermostat stuck

My thermostat worked last year, but seems stuck this year. Is this something I can repair? Could I take apart the thermostat other than the bellows and find anything useful to fix? I've taken apart the outer connections the ball and spring and cleaned them, but the thermostat just won't move off of full on anymore.
Does anyone know where I can find this thermostat or an equivalent?
Thank you

Is this on an air conditioner? Furnace? Fridge?

Well, a Google search for "MC16c" turned up mostly Cisco routers and Cisco modem cards. I just hate it when a router thermostat goes bad.

Ok, you posted at the same time as me.

I had a problem with the connections on my 1967 Trade Wind's fridge being corroded at the electric thermostat. Just a cleaning helped. I got luck on that one.

Terry may be able to point you in the right direction for parts. For obscure stuff (let's face it, anything from 1965 is going to be pretty obscure) there is a place in North Little Rock that's been in business forever. They have a lot of old stock. They don't have a website, but their phone and address is:

Tweedy's Inc.
7400 Landers Road
Sherwood, AR 72117-1607
(501) 835-1464

They may be able to help.

Best of luck!
