Question about Kenmore 74844 / 74842 Top Freezer Refrigerator
Everything in the frig is freezing even with the temp control on the lowest setting (0). I have done everything I could think of such as vacuuming off all the coils and taking everything apart and checking all the wiring. I've unplugged the frig and let it sit for a day just to see what would happen. Everything in the refrigerator is freezing and it is running non-stop. I want to know if I should replace the temp control part or if there is something else I should check. The model # for the frig is 253.71132104.
If the compressor is running non-stop then the temp. control is not telling it that it's "cold enough". If the compressor isn't running non-stop then you should look at the air damper (little window) that lets the freezer air into the refer compartment... if it's stuck open then you will always get cold air pushed into the fridge eventually becoming a freezer in itself.

Set your Ref/Freezer per the following:
Refrigerators: 36 to 40 degrees. Ideal temp is 37 Fahrenheit. Note: A temp above 42 degrees promotes bacteria.
Freezer: temp should be -5 to 6 degrees Fahrenheit. Ideal temp is 0 degrees.
You have to wait about 4 hours for everything to stabilize. If you are still having ice forming inside the freeezer then the rubber seal around the door is probably the problem. If they have a split, tear or crack, etc. it will let warm moist house air into the freezer and turn to ice as it cools. If this happens in the refrigerator it'll turn to water and collect in the bottom of the frig. New seals can cost around $60 per door.
If you pack too much food in the unit it may also cause freezing because the air needs to move around in there and food shouldn't block the vents in the back walls of the unit.
Hopefully this helps..
