Hi John,

There had been changes in the system recently, and not all answers are being displayed.

Now I do not know where to find your original problem.

If you find any link to the thread in your old emails, copy and paste it here , so that I can track back the problem.

When fridge is freezing inside that can be caused by:

Bad temperature settings.(temp too high)
Bad climate conditions (very hot outside and fridge set to lowest temp)
Problem with evaporator system at the back of the fridge.
Faulty thermistor, not detecting when temp. is too low.
Compressor problems.

Try moving the fridge from the wall, this sort out many problems with condenser/compressor and evaporator.
If there is Ice inside also remove ice to get back to normal.

If that does not work, it is either the compressor coming to the end of its life, or a faulty thermistor.

I will try to find the original thread, I suggest to complain with fixya, we have had serious disruptins since the new Fixya system started to work.

    The thermistor is located behind the back side wall inside the fridge, there is a cover to remove to access the thermistor.

    Here is the part : Thermistor

    I do not have a picture for your fridge, but there must be a removable cover inside the fridge, behind that there is the thermistor.

    To test the termistor you need to measure resistance at a determined temperature.

    Here you find resistance value to test it.


    Before replacing the thermistor, bear in mind that when the fridge is icing inside , it is not necessarily the thermistor.

    First check the condenser coil, at the back on top of the compressor, if there is dust hoover it up, and leave some airy space between the wall and the fridge.
