Hi katdaddy,
Welcome to fixya,

You said,
Your refrigerator keeps cycling on and off. temperature is50 degrees .

This means either you have a leak that must be detected befrore you re establish freon pressure or your thermostat is bad.

What is the model # and age of the refrigerator?

Freezer temp cycles above freezing


If you have a frost free refrigerator then temp jumps as you discribe are somewhat normal during a defrost cycle. However it sound like your defrost temp may be getting too high. There is a limit thermostat on the freezer coils that keep the defrost temp from getting too high. The part is called a (defrost termination thermostat) and is a round disk about 1 to 1.5 inch in diameter clipped to the top of the freezer coils with 2 wires coming out of it. When cold, it allows power to the defrost heaters. At around 35/40 degrees it opens and shuts off power to the heater. 35/40 degrees sounds high for a freezer temp but that is behind the wall and only for a short time. Yours may be staying on too long or out of temp calibration needing replaced.

Everything in the refridgerator is frozen,

Refridge temp


Lets go over the way a sealed system works. There is a highj side and a low side. The low side is the side that passes through the evaporator coils inside the machine. Most times on the freezer side only, but sub zero has independent sealed systems for each side. Once it goes throug the evaporator its then condensed into a liquid state, the high side. This is also the hot side. Well, lower pressures in the low side would logically mean lower temperatures. So for the refridgerator not to freeze more freon is used on it to keep the low side pressure higher than normal, giving the cooling effect verses freezing. So, and here is the bad part, if you are seeing ice build up in the refridgerator side you have a freon leak some where allowing the pressure to be less than required to keep it above freezing. Call a service technician and depending on how the model, sub zero warranty is parts and labor covered for the first 6, and only parts from the 6-12 year.

The fridge section does not appear to be keeping goods cool although temperature on front of fridge says 1 degree


Freezer fan not working or blocked by over ice formation behind the freezer. Switch of a/c for defrost. After some times, plug on . It's due to malfunction of defrost cycling. Keep thermostat at 5 degree and check thermostat, timer and defrost heater are working properly. thanks.

Please double check your model number because that number is not listed. I am pretty sure it has a dual evaporator one for freezer and other for the fresh food compartment. Check behind the cover of the fan inside the fresh food compartment to see if the coils are icing over. Send me the correct model number will help me decide if it is something different. I will even send you a Service manual with the correctmodel number, Thanks, Sea Breeze

All refrigeration products have a defrost set point. Most residential units defrost about every six to eighteen hours. This process should take about 30 minutes to 1 hour. The temp goes up so high inside because there is a heating element in the coils to thaw any residual ice. The temp should not exceed about 45 degrees though. If it does the the compressor is signaled to come back on and start cooling again. This is perfectly alright. The time at higher temp is not enough to spoil the food. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Mr.


When the heater comes on for defrost behind the rear freezer panel , it gets red hot . The defrost thermostat ( bimetal ) , cuts the heater off , when it reaches 140 degrees for new (2000 - 2009 ) and 55 degrees for older refrigs . When this temp is reached at the top of the coils , the lower portion will be hotter due to being closer to the heater . The frozen food in the freezer , is what keeps the temp down in front of the rear freezer panel . No food in freezer , the hotter the freezer section will be .
