Avanti Compact Refrigerator Mod.#18ERC/RW

Unit continues to freeze liquids in the refrigerator compartment even after control being moved to lowest possible setting. I have turned it off and unplugged it before adjusting the setting again. Is this a thermostat issue? If so, can I replace the thermostat my self?

    Yes, I am having the same problem. I have tried lowering it and raising it thinking that it works opposite of the norm and nothing seems to work

I have the same problem with this model. I just called Avanti service and they asked if the temperature probe was hanging, which mine is. It needs to be reclipped and that is supposed to fix it. Hopefully this works.

Hello there,
The problem with the refrigerator that is causing it to freeze continuously is simply because the defrost heater is not working. Have the defrost heater tested and replaced once found faulty.
Also you need to check the defrost timer and defrost thermostat to see if they are still in good condition. Once any component is found faulty, then you have to replace it with a new one.

Food in refrigerator is freezing


check the damper door between the freezer and refrigerator compartments,it most likely has frozen in the fully open position allowing cold air into refrige compartment all the time,you will see ice build up around the damper door unit,remove the door unit defrost,replace and then see if it moves when you change the refrige cold control

Fridge keeps on freezing everything inside of it


This refrigerator only has one thermostat located in the fresh food compartment it is designed to activate the sealed system (cooling) until it reaches approximately 37 deg f in the fresh food compartment. The damper controls how fast the cold air can move from the freezer compartment to the fresh food compartment. Allowing you to control the temp in the freezer by controlling the flow of cold air to the thermostat.

You have one of two problems.
#1 your thermostat is no longer opening when it achieves set temp. fix = replace thermostat pn 61005798 $35
#2 your damper arm or assemblie has broken. Fix = Replace damper or broken arm and actuator.
damper assembly pn12001377 $44
damper actuator pn 61002000 $2
damper arm pn 61001999 $2

Your refrig has a mechanical damper (the a b or c knob) it may be broken (uncommon ) \ is the freezer fan running even if the cold control is cycled?? Other than that it must be a faulty cold control These are very reliable refrigs and your problem is interesting. Please rate my solution

Refrigerator freezes contents


Get a new cold control for it

Food gets frozen


If your refrigerator freezes its contents, even when the cold control is set to its lowest setting, its cold control is probably defective. Call an appliance repairperson. As a rule, refrigerators are designed to maintain 37 to 40 degrees F in the refrigerator box and 0 to 5 degrees F in the freezer box. Setting either compartment to lower temperatures generally costs you extra in energy dollars. If the icemaker keeps making ice, even when full: 1) Lift the bail wire to shut it off. 2) Empty the bin, remove the icemaker, clean it, and reinstall it. 3) If the problem persists, consider having an appliance repairperson remove and replace the entire icemaker and valve, a relatively affordable repair. With this type of problem, it's often better to replace the unit rather than to pay for
