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

What is the normal fluctuation range of a top freezer in a freeze-refrig combo? That is if I set the temperature of the freezer a 0 F, at what temperature should the freezer come on to keep the air i


Hello Richard;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

The normal range for a freezer is -2 to +2 Deg. F.

The normal range for the fresh food section is 35 to 40 Deg. F.

If you set your freezer at 0 Deg. F. it will stay at 0 Deg. F.
When the freezer temperature drops below 0, your compressor will kick in to bring the freezer back to 0 Deg. F.

Refrigerator freezes


Sounds like might be the Temperature Control Thermostat or some sensor in the circuitry telling the compressor and cooling parts to keep running because it thinks it isn't cold enough. There is probably a circulation fan to blow the cold air through the damper and it may not shut off either, conveying too much cold thermal conduction through ducting and all frig parts, regardless of damper being closed or open. With the temperature set on low, do the compressor and fans ever shut off once cold temperatures are attained? Freezer should be 0 or lower, frig 35-40.

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.

Can you operate a refrigerator in a garage with out problems


Good day,
The high and low temperature range for a domestic refrigerator is 55 and 95 degrees. Above and below that issues will appear.
Above 95 degrees the compressor will be taxed badly, and will obviously shorten it's life.
Below 55 degrees it will not run enough to keep the freezer at decent temperatures, and because it stays off long periods of time, the oil in the compresser sump will thicken, making compressor starting difficult and once again shortening it's life.

It's done all the time but there is a cost long term.

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.

Thank for using FixYa

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

Firstly, return your controls back to a mid-range setting. Depending on the age and condition of the unit, this may be a "normal" operating issue in the hotter days of summer. Ascertain that your door seals are sealing adequately and keep door openings,(entries) to a minimum,
Follow this rule: "Get in, get what you want, and get out"!!)
Always check to make sure that all doors are closed tightly.

Amana Side by Side, freezer not cooling adequately


first make sure the fridge has not frozen over if there is ice on the walls it will screw the system that determines how cold it is up. if this is the case empty the fridge unplug and use a hair dryer to carefully speed up the thawing process. usually this happens during warm and humid seasons.

if this is not the case then see below and you might need a professional appliance service to perform the below unless you are fairly skilled


The temperature control thermostat directs voltage to the compressor, evaporator fan motor, and condenser fan motor (if applicable). If the temperature control thermostat is not working properly, it may cause the refrigerant system to run longer than necessary. As a result, the refrigerator will be too cold. To determine if the thermostat is defective, rotate the thermostat from the lowest setting to the highest setting and listen for a click. If the thermostat clicks, it is not likely defective. If the thermostat does not click, use a multimeter to test the thermostat for continuity. If the temperature control thermostat does not have continuity at any setting, replace it.
The thermistor monitors the air temperature and sends the temperature reading to the control board. The control board then regulates power to the compressor and evaporator fan based on the thermistor readings. If the thermistor is defective, the compressor and evaporator fan may run too frequently. As a result, the refrigerator will be too cool. To determine if the thermistor is defective, test it with a multimeter. The thermistor resistance should change in conjunction with the refrigerator temperature. If the thermistor resistance does not change, or the thermistor does not have continuity, replace the thermistor.
