Hi eapiano,

I'm Harvey th Master Plumber.

Your question is: Your GErefrigerator does not seem to be cooling as before. You turned up the temperature control from 5 to 7 and also the freezer control higher, but it still doesn't seem to be cold enough. You don't want to lose all your food especially in the freezer What can you do? The model number is: TFX22PRX

First, make sure the power is on. Then listen for the compressor motor. If you don't hear it then you have a compressor failure or an electrical failure inside. If you can then look to a bad thermostat. In the mean time get everything into coolers or neighbor"s fridg.

Www frigidaire com MY FFHS2313LM6 the temperature is sky high and won't cool down.


Thank you for your post, friend!

I see your Frigidaire refrigerator is not cooling and you have performed a reset on your appliance by unplugging it. You could be experiencing an issue within your control panel or sealed system. I would recommend seeking assistance from a professional to come and diagnose your appliance for the proper repair. Hopefully this is helpful. -Matt

I need to learn how to control the tempature setting


Hello,

The temperature controls are located at the top front of the refrigerator or freezer compartments.
The recommended setting should be correct for normal household refrigerator use. The controls are correctly set when milk or juice is as cold as you like and when ice cream is firm.
Wait 24 hours for your refrigerator to completely cool before adding food. If you add food before the refrigerator has completely cooled, your food may spoil.
NOTE: Adjusting the refrigerator and freezer temperature controls to a colder-than-recommended setting will not cool the compartments any faster.
If the temperature is too warm or too cold in the refrigerator or freezer, first check the air vents to be sure they are not blocked before adjusting the controls.
To turn Off/On:
Style 1 Press the freezer down arrow touch pad until a dash (-) appears in both the refrigerator and freezer displays. Neither compartment will cool.
Style 2 Turn the freezer control to the word Off. Neither compartment will cool when the freezer is set to Off.

Energy Saver option (on some models)
The Energy Saver option turns off the heater which helps to reduce moisture on the door hinge seal. The refrigerator uses more energy when Energy Saver is off.
Press the control to On to save energy when the environment is less humid.
Press the control to Off when the environment is warm and more humid, or if you notice moisture on the door hinge seal.

Adjusting controls
If you need to adjust the temperature in either the refrigerator or freezer compartment.
NOTES:
For Style 1 control, press the up and down arrow touch pads; for Style 2 controls, turn the dial to adjust the temperature.
Except when starting the refrigerator, do not adjust either control more than one setting at a time.
Wait 24 hours between adjustments for the temperature to stabilize.

Hope this guideline will helpout.....

My GE freezer stopped cooling. I turned it off,


Hi
I think the problem you are experiencing might be due to the temperature control.
1. Check if the temperature control is off if you dont hear the freezer operating.

2.If you do not see an interior light,when you open the door,then make sure the freezer is properly plugged into an electrical outlet.

3.Move the temperature level to a colder level if the freezer is not cold enough.Warm weather can also be a factor.

4.Find the condenser and check to see if it needs to be cleaned. The condenser is located behind the decorative paneling at the bottom of the freezer.

5.If it doesnt work still then contact a technician.
GOODLUCK

The compressor is cycled on/off by the fresh food temperature setting. The freezer setting controls a panel, or door if you will, that allows cold air to be blown into the freezer.

Since both compartments are getting too cold, the most likely culprit is the fresh food thermostat control, since it controls the compressor cycle. Try setting it to a higher setting, even if it's above normal. Use a manual thermometer to check the temperature of the fresh food compartment and compare it to the control setting. The readings should be the same or very nearly the same.

I assume your refrigerator is controlled by a solid state controller (i.e. a printed circuit board). Some of these allow for calibration of the thermostat to coincide with the actual temperature of the fresh food compartment. That would most likely have to be done by a service technician unless you have expertise in the field.

If calibration is not an option, if you can live with the thermostat setting not reflecting the actual temperature, a free fix is to simply set it higher than you actually want it to be, recognizing that the actual temperature is 'X' degrees lower than the thermostat setting.

The freezer compartment temperature will be similarly affected, and can be controlled by the freezer temp setting, which is actually nothing more than setting the position of the panel which allows or restricts air from being blown into the fresh food compartment from the freezer. Again, the compressor is cycled on and off by the thermostat in the FRESH FOOD compartment which gets its cold air from the freezer compartment.

Proper temp. range in freezer


Hi dgh1,
The freezer should stay within 5 degrees of 0 while in operation. While in defrost the freezer may reach as high as 20 to 25 degrees. If any higher temperatures are reached your food will spoil as they are defrosted and refroze everyday. If you find that the temperature is allowing your food to defrost you may want to replace your defrost thermostat. This device is located on top of the evaperator coil inside the back of the freezer. It is made to turn the heater off when a temperature of 55 degrees is reached. One other possible problem could be your defrost timer is taking to long to restart the cooling cycle after defrosting. I hope this will help you and please send any other questions you may have, I am happy to help. and dont forget to rate me.

Kenmore freezer is not cooling


Listen for some type of noise from the back lower part of the freezer. This could indicate a problem with the compressor. It is not a fast fix problem. Get your frozen foods to a cold temperature. If the compressor is running and you are not getting the cooling your system could have lost its refrigerant charge. If the compressor is cool and not running check the temperature control. It may have failed. Unplug the power to the freezer and remove the temperature control. Jumper the two main wires that attach to the temperature control and insulate them with electrical tape. Plug the freezer back in and the compressor should start and cool. If this makes it run replace the thermostat.

Temperature adjustment


Generally the freezer temp is the REAL temp of the unit. Fans, dampers and manual control levers let some of that cold freezer air into the refer compartment to cool it. Check your owners manual for damper operations if you have one. If you have a refer temp control all that does is control a damper to let the cold freezer air into the compartment. Also make sure you don't block off any of those vents in the refer or freezer compartment or bad air circulation can occur.
