    Problem statement continued: Unplugging the refrigerator for a couple of hours allows the compressor to turn on but temperature control still does not work. Refrigerator is a Hotpoint model CTX25GMMRWH.

Refrigerator does not turn off even when temperatu - 0dec7907-6dd5-471f-9821-90c9724966dd.jpgModel Number Locations What is the model number? Does the refrigerator cool normally if you leave the settings on normal settings? What dis you want me to see by your video of the control panel? I am here to answer your question once I have the model number All compressors will not start for a few minutes after turning off and then back to normal setting because the Freon pressures must equalize to allow the compressor to restart.

SOURCE: Refrigerator won't cool. Freezer works fine!

Pierce, there was a service bullitin put out on this model. TDR-0010A-B. Had to do with normal freezer, warm fresh food compartment. Maytag issued a kit that included a new thermostat and damper assy. to solve this problem. Bullitin came out in 2002. If you are not having a defrost issue and all fans are running normal, I would call Maytag and inquire about the above posted bullitin, It may be covered. back.

SOURCE: Refrigerator freezes everything even on the lowest setting

Is everything really frozen or just the top shelf stuff? You may have a thermistor (temp sensor) problem if the compressor just runs and runs and runs all the time. Take a glass of water and place a thermometer in it for about 3 hours then take a temp. reading. That will let you know what the real temps are. See if you can cause the compressor to kick off and on by changing the temp settings (go to real low for about 5 minutes then back up to high). Let us know what happens.

Fridge keeps freezing food

I have a 6 year old Kenmore Elite top freezer.. I have been dissapointed from day one with this fridge.. the fridge has air vents all over the inside of the fridge. We find that if one of these vents have anything in front of it that something somewhere else in the fridge will freeze. Its very frustrating.. I find that I loose allot of fridge space because I am always juggling space to make sure that these vents are always open... very bad design.. sounded like a good idea at the time.. but never again..

Even at lowest setting refrigerator side freezes up

Possible failure of the thermostat or the sensor to the thermostat that is not working to control the cooling temperature and hence making the compressor work.

Try and set the thermostat to lowest just a little before it cuts off , if this wont work then the thermostat is faulty. Check the wires of the sensor to the cooling coils.

Ge model tfx22z it runs all the time but the frezzer and food department are normal temp

It is normal for a refrigerator to run 75 per cent of the time or more depending on the temperature of your room. Very hot weather and a lot of door opening can cause a refrigerator to run more. as long as everything is freezing and cooling, i wouldn't worry too much.

Here are several things you could check. first clean out the condenser coils underneath the refrigerator. check to see what your thermostat is set on. set it to 5 (normal). You can also slowly turn it down toward the lowest number and see if the compressor kicks off (this will let you know the thermostat is working). you can also check your door gaskets to make sure everything is sealing good around the doors.

Refridgerator tempature is too cold even with setting at lowest level. How can I adjust tempature down?

If you have your refrigerator set at a low level (lower numbers mean warmer termperatures) and it is still too cold, there is a malfuction with the temperature control or if it is a plate sensing control verses air sensing, you could have a low charge issue. I would need more specific info on your model and the symptoms to tell you more.

Freezer used as a frige?

it may be possible. Turn the temperature on the lowest setting and see what happens. If it still freezes everything up then it is not posible. If it doesn't freeze everything , then check the temperature with any temp probe. It should run at somewhere between 36 and 38 degrees. This is the normal cool setting on a refrigerator.

Refrigerator temperature was turned down to lowest number (1) and now the refrigerator will not come back on and chill inside when temp dial is increased to higher #'s. Light is on so it is plugged in.

Repalce the thermostate nob which has teeth to hold the nob in desired level. Due to constant usage of turning the nob it would have broken. Please replace the thermostate nob and do not change the setting on and often to avoid such situation. It wil take care of itself without turning it on our own.

Frigidare Dehumidifier will not turn off

Pressure and temperature is directly related with refrigerants in the system. Ice building on part of the coils shows that the pressure inside the system is low and the system has lost some of its charge. Very low humidity with a low ambient temperature will also cause such a problem.
