Danby Silhouette frig freezing everything regardless of thermostat setting.

It's the thermostat that's failed.
You'll need to buy a replacement unit, then fit it into the fridge.
If you can do this yourself, by all means get on with it.
If you can't do this yourself, you'll need to pay an engineer to do this for you,
or let everything freeze.?
best of luck

I have a Magin Chef Mini-Fredge model MCBR360S. The motor doesn't run at all. The thermostat is set as high as it can go. I need help diagnosing the problem.

Try setting it to the lowest temperature. Listen for a click when you do this, Be sure you have power and the lights come on inside.

Why does my side by side amana frig (model ARSE66ZBW) freez anything near the back wall of frig ?

On your Amana model there are a couple things I want you to check. I think that you have already double checked your temperature settings but check the temperature again and set a little warmer if possible. Many times this is not the issue causing the colder than normal temps in the fresh food section. Your model ARSE66ZBW has something called an auto damper Click Here=> ARSE66ZBW Controls Then you will see item location number 8. That is your 12571701 Auto Damper I would like you to see if frost or ice is blocking the vent and causing it to remain open. Read over this service manual=> HERE This manual is not the same as your model but has all the instructions needed to test the components I am discussing. Test the Auto Damper, check all vents inside fresh food compartment, thermostat (if Running Continious) and if damper is stuck in the open position without ice causing the problem the manual and I will be here to help you test the thermostat embedded into the damper to see if the damper itself will need replaced, Looking to here from you, Thanks, Sea Breeze

I have a Magic Chef compact refrigerator model MCBR270 that now runs constantly and freezes everything I put in it no matter what setting is used on the temperature control knob. What can I do to diagnose...

Well, this answer is 6 years late.

I have the same model MC frig - 14 years old. There is only two electrical components; the compressor and the thermostat. Since the compressor is running and freezing, the thermostat must be stuck on. You need to replace the thermostat. My thermostat is also bad. I can't find one. One of the numbers on the thermostat is LR62862. Another is PFN-110U 02D. May be time for a new frig.

White Kenmore 564.98291890 - Freezing in refrigerator

This is a pretty simple built refrigerator, no circuit boards or electronic sensors.
What it sounds like is your thermostat is sticking and not turning the compressor off when it gets to the correct temp.
The control knob is mounted directly to the thermostat, so when you turn the knob you are turning the thermostat.
The only thing you can do is replace it. It is a pretty simple repair you should be able to do yourself. Once you have the new part, UNPLUG the fridge, remove the knob and take the control box loose. You should see how to change it from there.
Be careful with the long metal tube that is attached to the new thermostat. It is pretty durable but if you break it the thermostat is ruined. They don't break easily but you should be sure not to kink it..
Post back if you need help with it.

Samsung RS2545SH Freezing Everything

Sounds like a thermostat problem. There will be a thermostat sensor inside the fridge usually inside the interior light housing.
