I have tried changing the settings on my westinghouse side by side fridge freezer from 3 up to another setting of 5 but it keeps defaulting to 3 and food continues to freeze ,how do I save the new setting?

I found this link to a manual at . If it was me. The first thing I would do is to unplug the refrigerator for 15 minutes and then plug it back in. I would do this to reset the control board. If you are changing the temperatures and they reset to factory setting then you might have a problem with the control board. Try unpluging it and see if that works first. Refrigerator repair can be difficult and if that does not work you may have to contact a repairman in your area to come out and diagnose it. If I can help you please contact me HERE.

My Westinghouse RS662V fridge is not cold at all. I have turned the dial to full cold but it has made no difference. The freezer seems to be working OK. Could it be the thermostat in the fridge?

Yes you need to adjust the thermostst located inside the fridge compartment to change the temp. setting of the fridge.
PLZ. dont forget to rate my suggestion.

I have an Westinghouse Silhouette 121 freezer. At bottom rear there is an adjuster for Temperature setting. Can you advise how much I should turn this screw adjuster? It reads "Off" at one...

For best performance set the control at a mid point between OFF and HIGH.
The closer you set it to OFF the warmer the freezer.
The closer to the right HIGH the colder the freezer.

Refrigerator less than two months old. Freezer side fine refrigerator side stopped working altogether. All food ruined. Who should I contact. purchased from Home Depot.

This is a very common issue, If the freezer compartment is cold and making ice the
problem is simply airflow from the freezer into the refrigerated section.
Typically when one senses the refrigerator is warm they max out the settings
on both dials the thermostat with its 1-10 settings as well as off for the compressor.
This controls the compressor and temperature.
The additional setting or dial is for colder freezer or refrigerator as well , However
it simply opens or closes a flapper door between the freezer and refrigerator boxes.
When that dial or setting is maxed , it closes and makes the freezer colder, yet leaves the refrigerated section starved for sufficient airflow to maintain a cold box in the refrigerated section.
Just set the dial that does not turn the compressor off to the middle setting.
One can leave the thermostat that does control the compressor in the max setting , just not the colder freezer setting, If you notice colder isnt colder refrigerator, Its actually colder freezer, A common issue found on 25% of all refrigerator calls a simple setting adjustment.
Its easy to think that maxing out the settings makes for a colder refrigerator, it doesnt, it makes a colder freezer and warm rerigeration section.
If a freezer is making ice, theres nothing wrong with the unit other than airflow setting.

My Roper refrigerator stopped getting cold, although the refrigerator lights and the fan in the freezer works. What is the problem?

If the freezers warm, possible defrost timer bad, if freezers cold, set to middle setttings on both dials, the 1-10 OFF dial operates the compressor, the COLDER/WARMER dial operates the flapper door that regulates freezer air into the reefer box, if set to max cold that makes cold freezer, not reefer.

I have an FU161ERW5 Westinghouse upright freezer. What # should I set the coldness on? It goes from 1 to 8 but we have it on 4 and all the shelves are covered in ice.

If # 4 is too cold and cause freezing problems try turning it down to #3, if same problem exists then go on down the line. This should take care of this issue.

What is the best temperature for the bottom freezer and refrig?

Set both dials in the middle.

If you have a nearly full freezer, add 1 dial unit.
If you have a nearly full refrigerator, add 1 dial unit.

If your freezer is less than half full, step down 1 dial unit
Refrigerator should not be less than mid-point on dial (it gets open more often).

This is a good starting point, adjust in a month or so.
