Replacement thermostats depends on whether the fridge is a double door or single door model. You can buy this part from your appliance parts store/supplier.

The contents of the refrigerator freeze even on low settings


One of the most common problems with freezers is their tendency to build up a thick level of frost and ice that can disrupt performance. The ice can form on the hoses and cause the fan to freeze up. While you want the freezer to be cold, too much ice is not good for the freezer or the food inside it. There are multiple reasons a freezer could start to develop frost buildup.

Freezer Overstocked
Frost can build up in the freezer if there are too many items inside of it. Air cannot properly circulate around the freezer, so the areas with the sitting cold air can freeze the moisture. Frost continues to build up and accumulate, which then allows it to spread. If food is stocked up near the fan, cold air can't get past it, and the fan itself could develop frost to the point where it freezes and stops working entirely. This can be prevented by not overstocking the freezer and by evenly distributing food throughout.

Temperature Setting Too Low
The freezer should have a thermostat that regulates how cold it gets. If the temperature is set at too low of a setting, the freezer kicks into high gear, the air freezes outright and frost quickly builds up. Adjusting the thermostat to a higher temperature or level can counteract this problem, but you may need to de-thaw the freezer to eliminate the frost that has already built up inside.

Keeping the Fridge Door Open
Many people keep their fridge door open for extended periods of time while they examine the contents inside to see what they want to eat. This can contribute to frost buildup in the freezer, because the fridge is taking in a lot of warm air during this process and the fan pushes it up into the freezer. The moisture in that air is then quickly frozen, and ice can build up substantially as a result. The longer the fridge door is held open, the more likely this can occur, so the best solution is to only keep the fridge open for short intervals and then to not open the door again for a while.
Hope this tips will help you. : )

Hello We have a gaggenau 2 door fridge freezer,SK 533. And it keeps tripping out the electrics. We have tried running it off a different fuse box and still it happens. Can u help?


Sounds like the defrost element in the freezer has failed in spectacular form, this is the most common fault for tripping power, or it could be the thermostat but this is highly unlikely.
If you can, gain access to the element by dismanteling the panel inside the freezer, the element will run at the base of the cooling cores with a wire at each end (black) and an earth point (green), check with multi-meter, on earth and one on black, check both ends of black. You should find you will have a flow through one of the ends that will indicate a short curcuit, replace the element if faulty.

Side by side thermostat set low seems like it runs a lot more than it use to freezer and fridge are boyh cold


Check your coils underneath the fridge to be sure they are clean.
Check your condensor fan (bottom rear of fridge) to make sure it is blowing air freely.
Make sure you have a good supply in the freezer, All of your cooling comes from the freezer section and a mostly empty freezer will result in more frequent running as ther is not enough stock to help maintian and hold freezing temperatures.
Check your freezer section to make sure there is no visible frost on the back wall of the freezer (down low on the panels behind and slightly above the lowest freezer basket. If you see frost starting to develop it means you have a defrost issue starting and will want to adress it rather quickly. Either a problem with the defrost control board (inside fridge/freezer control compartment) or the defrost thermostat (behind the freezer back panel on top of the evaporator coils).
Hopefully this helps!

Hi, I have double door refrigerator. The fridge section is not working at all however the freezer section is giving excessive cooling


If the freezer is cold then it is having trouble circulating air, first make sure the evaporator fan in the freezer is on.  If it is not check for power, if you have power replace the fan.  If not it is probably the defrost thermostat.  If the fan is on then more than likely your evaporator coil is frozen over.  The fridge goes through a defrost cycle every 8-12 hours depending on the model.  If this is the case then get a hair dryer and melt all of the ice, this will keep everything working until you can get it fixed.  It is either the defrost thermostat, the defrost timer, or the defrost heater.  Check the heater for continuity, if that is good, check the defrost timer which should be located near the heater for continuity, if that is good replace the defrost timer.  Do not put the freezer on the coldest setting.  The freezer temp is really an air balance, and when you put it on the coldest setting it shuts off all airflow to the fridge.

Warm fridge cold freezer


Hi,advance thermostat setting, to get colder , it's possible you got defrost problem, is there excessive ice building inside back of freezer? to determine if you have a defrost problem, unplug ref. for about an hour,let it defrost, let all ice melt away, it's better to remove your produce, keep doors open to speed up defrosting, after defrosting and cleaning plug back your ref, and let it work for another hour, and check result, if it's o/k, put back your produce, let me know, during hot summer months, regular use (opening) of ref, could cause excessive ice build-up evap. if after defrosting and cleaning ref. work good for 3 to 4 days, but start doing the same thing, let me know, it means you got a defrost problem. also check your thermostat, but first defrost and clean it, that could just be your problem. good luck.
