Do a "temp" test. Put a normal thermometer in a glass of water and put it in the fridge overnight. Is the water temp matching the set point temp? It can be +/- 5 degrees (not an exact science sort of thing). But basically if the fridge is working OK and you just have a setpoint I'd say it's probably not worth the effort to change the thermistor, etc.

I have a kitchen aid KSC24C8EYY the problem is that the refrigerator does not cool stay cool below 40 degrees, Holding 43-45 range. The freezer maintains freezing but not to the 2 degree setting.


well, how full is your fridge. if your fridge is blocking any of the return air vents, thats usually where the problem lies with side by sides. you need good air flow in these models for proper temps in the fresh food compartment

My refrigerator kicks on and off but will not cool below 48 degrees


It may be kicking off on low gas, or the cap tubes or the evaporator valve is malfunctioning. A professional technician will have to check it out.

Ac blows warm under acceleration


That is normal to and extent, the compressor will kick off during acceleration to allow the power needed, does it return to cooling after letting up on the gas peddle ? if so this is normal. air coming out the inside vents should read (temp gauge) below 60 degrees at idle, when the car is driving it should drop temp.

Why does the freezer portion temp indicator bounces between 0 and -12 degrees periodically.


Temps should fluctuate, as the refrigerator will go into a defrost mode every so often. Some models will go into defrost mode after you open the freezer door X amount of times, say 6. So every 6th time you open the door it will go into defrost. Then some models go every 4 to 6 hours depending on settings. Then also, it is normal due to temp control. Temp setting is -10 The fridge will run to that temp setting, -10 and shut off the compressor at -10 but due to pressures it will still cool a bit to your -12. it will stay in this off mode until the temp rises 8 to 10 degs. then kicks back on the compressor. Again due to pressures it may take the system 2 - 3 degs to catch back up and start cooling again. But you maintain average temp of -5 to -6 which is great for frozen food and saves a bit of electricity. As long as the door seals are in good shape and you clean the coils underneath once twice a year it should work fine for many years. Then lastly It may have a lag in the thermostat meaning it has gotten week or going bad. Hope this helps.

Good day,
No real solution except to put it in a warmer location.
Understand, it is a refrigerator with the freezer just going along for the ride.
All manufacturers state the machine must be in an area that is no colder than 55 degrees.
The problem you have, is once the refrigerator section reaches temperature 34 to 39 degrees, it shuts the whole machine off. If the air temp surrounding the machine is near or approaching that temp, it shuts off, and may be off most of the day,
Domestic refrigerators are engineered to operate in area comfortable to people. Normally 70 to 95 degrees. Below that it will begin to unbalance.

My frig. in the garage.. The freezer works great in summer months but in winter months it doesn't. Why is that?


Good day,
That is normal. The thermostat that runs the whole machine is located in the refrigerator compartment.
When it reaches normal temperature, it shuts off. In winter months that may mean as long as 12 hours or more. Thus not enough running time per day to keep the freezer near it's normal temperature.
Engineers design domestic refrigerators to be in an area comfortable to humans. Normally 70 degrees or higher. Thus your problem.
The only solution is to bring the machine inside.
Sorry.

My air conditioner will kick on but will stay on and not


The thermostat is not functional, therefore its not cutting off the compressor once the room air gets cooled to the temp setting of the thermostat, also the refrigerant gas may have leaked out some but not the entire refrigerant gas(freon, CF4, etc.), keeping the compressor running contentiously to come down to the set temp..............sodeep
