The thermostat should only control within a specific range of temperatures. I believe your thermostat needs to be replaced.

Heaters running cold at 90 degrees

If the engine is running at a normal temperature I would suspect the thermostat.
Normally from a cold start the coolant should only circulate through the bypass hose, the heater matrix, and back through the engine, As the engine warms up and the thermostat begins to open the coolant is directed through the main radiator - at this point you will be able to feel the upper and lower radiator hoses warming up.
If the thermostat is faulty and permanently open you will be able to feel the upper and lower radiator hoses warming up very soon after starting the engine and at the same time as you feel the heater hoses begin to warm. This causes most of the heat to be radiated away and so the heater will never warm up.
Unfortunately the thermostat is hidden underneath the water pump on a passat and requires the cooling system to be drained before it can be changed. It may also require the power steering pump to be removed to get access to the thermostat cover.

Some thermostats have a default lower limit such as 60 degrees to prevent complete loss of heating. The lower limit is not set by the user.

Refrigerator starts cooling mainly when I open the door

Put a thermometer in both the freezer and the fridge. Fridge should be around 40F if not a little lower, but should stay above 30F.

Freezer should be just below 30.

Fridge freezer - freezer working but fridge not. red warm light is on


If refrigerator is not cooling properly can be due to a defrost timer, which is causing the fridge to go into defrost cycle. Usually it takes 45-60 minutes for refrigerator to come out of defrost cycle. If the timer goes bad then it will not come out of defrost cycle and can result in this kind of issues. It can also occur due to defrost thermostat, it allows current to pass through it at temperatures of 20 to 30 degrees Fahrenheit and prevents current from passing through it at 40 to 60 degrees. This is difficult to test, though, because it takes a prolonged, very-cold temperature to turn it on. The defrost thermostat is snapped onto the top portion of the evaporator. The thermostat sends temperature information to the processor. The defrost heater must be replaced when replacing the thermostat.

1. Remove the lower fan duct work from the evaporator cover.
2. Remove the 1/4-in. evaporator cover screws and remove the evaporator cover.
3. Disconnect the defrost thermostat wiring connector.
4. Remove the defrost thermostat from the evaporator.

I hope the above helps.......

Good luck.

I have my Emerson FR966T wine coller set for 60 degrees, but my cooler never seems to get the high. It always hovers around 58-59. When I heat my house up (never above 68) my cooler seems to warm up to...

Yes, because the fridge is a heat exchanger. The trade off for cooling the inside is a condenser coil on the outside which is warm. If you raise the temperature on the outside it will affect the inside a little. Having said that, the thermostat should keep the temperature within specifications. If you have it set for 60 and it is 58 or 59, to me it is within spec.The difference in 2 or 3 degrees Fahrenheit is tiny.

Also it should be pointed out this is a $63 cooler from Walmart. If you want a good one for storing thousand dollar bottles of Chateau Margeaux, you need a $600 wine cooler with a solid state digital thermostat and controls that talks to your smartphone when the temperature is one degree off..

It is not holding temp. its range is 30 to 49 degrees in one hour

As a refrigerator, it should not go below about 34 degrees. If it is going down to 30, it may be freezing up on the coil. If you get a chance, do this: unplug the refrigerator and let it sit for 4 hours with the door open. If the coil is frozen it will defrost. You can feel the coils inside the box at the top back inside the unit. If you feel ice at any time it is an indication that it is getting too cold. Once the inside coils freeze over, the air can't flow through the coils and the unit will get warmer and warmer. When it is defrosted, set the thermostat just above the off setting. Let it run until the compressor shuts off. See what the temperature reads on a thermometer inside the cooler. If it is not cool enough move the thermostat one number colder and let it run an hour. Take your time, let it equalize before you change the thermostat. Also if the cooler is empty it is hard to set the thermostat because when you open the door all the cold air escapes and the temp will change rapidly. If it is full of cold food, opening the door won't change the temperature very quickly. Also check the radiator coils at the bottom of the cooler behind the grill. If it is clogged with dust or grease, the compressor may overheat and shut off prematurely.

Not only will the fridge side not cool properly, now the door won't stay shut. Temp in fridge side stays 20 degrees warmewr than what panel says.what a pos.

Fridge problem- How to check everything
The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp .
If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.

Door problem-The lower hinge on each door may have a door closing cam. It raises the door up ¼ inch when opening and this assist in closing the door. If it’s wore out and doesn’t work the door may not seal and the gasket can be damaged. Watch the operation of the door to see if it rises up when opened.
