My mini fridge is set at 5 and it freezes then defreezes

I bought an Emerson Compact Refrigerator C276BE a couple months ago. The problem is if I set it to 4 it keeps everything cool but the freezing compartment does not work. When I set the temperature to 5 or higher, the freezing compartment has ice buildup and it occasionally defrosts itself. Its a cycle, it freezes then defrosts on its on when its set on 5. Is something wrong with it? Because I would come home to a puddle beside it. In addition, I considered checking the back and the black round object in the back is really hot. If there is a huge problem, is it fixable? And how can I fix it?

SOURCE: Frigidaire is freezing everything

Make sure the light is going off when the door is in the closed position. Find the switch that the door makes contact with when it closes. If the light is not going out the heat from the light being on could cause such a problem.

The unit is according to your description is only a couple of monthes old and parts should be covered under factory warranty. Call the toll free number that comes with your refrigerator to have them get a factory trained repairman to come out and see what is the matter. There is a minimal charge for the repairman typically under $100.
Hope this helps,
PS waiting for proper repair causes most problems to get worst, so time is of the essence.

Fridge Freezes Everything


there is a motor with a flapper that opens and closes to keep your temp correct in the refrigerator side most likely the motor is bad and stuck open so your air from the freezer has constant flow to the refr side. the flapper is in the back of the refr behind a cover where the air flows in.

My husband and I bought this same refrigerator around 11/2009 and it doesn't work now either. We too bought this refrigerator at a local target. Yikes. We bought ours for our daughters dorm room and it didn't stay working even one year. Is that how Emerson told you to handle it - by shipping that stupid thing to CA. Thats ridiculous.

Kenmore Side by Side Refrigerator too cold


On a fridge freezer only the fridge temperature is monitored. In a cold location the fridge might not even need cooling and the freezer would get too warm but the thing won't care.

If the fridge sensor sees it as too warm then it will keep the motor running and the first thing to get really cold is the freezer.

Remember the freezing part is not temperature controlled ion a fridgefreezer.

Koolatron Mini Fridge Overheating


Check the condensor fan behind the fridge which is designed to cool the compressor/gas line by blowing air over the condensor. When this fan motor seizes or stops running, the gas gets very hot and because it is skin cooled too, the outside of the fridge also gets very hot. You can overcome the problem temporarily by putting a standing fan behind the fridge, blowing onto the compressor and under the fridge untill you can have the problem rectified.
