I would say the cold control may be bad.If the fridge is getting too cold it sounds like the control is not shutting the unit down when it gets to temp. You can check the cold control with a OHM meter and see if it is working properly. If it is not you will need to replace it and your refrigerator should work fine.

How to set temperature on a general electric

Copied from

    • 1 Open the fresh food compartment and locate the two temperature control dials. Each dial is labeled for the compartment that it controls.
    • 2 Rotate the dial to increase the temperature setting by one to lower the temperature of the compartment. Rotate the dial to decrease the temperature setting by one to raise the temperature of the compartment.
    • 3 Wait 12 hours to allow the temperature in the compartment to stabilize before increasing or decreasing the temperature further.

Refrigerator was shut down for winter. now that we plugged it back in the refrigerator and freezer are not coming down to temperature.

If the compressor is on, that is good news. Depending on how hot and humid it is, it will take some time for it to cool down. If you have a thermometer you can check to see what the change is every couple of hours. If you don't show a steady decrease in temperature then there is a problem.

You might want to clean the condenser grill and make sure that there is front to back air flow at the bottom.

Freezer not cold enough to maintain ice and food

  • When your refrigerator isn't cooling your food and drink items, first check that the power cord is plugged into a working electrical outlet. If you recently plugged in the refrigerator for the first time, it will take approximately 8 to 12 hours before the refrigerator is cool. Even though the refrigerator is cool in this time frame, you shouldn't place the refrigerator to a colder setting until the initial cool down stage, which takes 24 hours.

    If the refrigerator has been running for 24 hours, you can adjust the refrigerator to a lower setting. The control panel is located in upper portion of the refrigerator compartment. Press the up arrow button to set the refrigerator to a higher setting, which will decrease the temperature of the refrigerator compartment.
  • Door
  • If the temperature control is correctly set but the refrigerator compartment still does not cool down, check the refrigerator door. First, remove any food or drink items that are preventing the door from fully closing. In addition, make sure all of the drawers are fully closed, as they may keep the door from closing.

    Next, clean off the gasket with warm, soapy water and a sponge. Rinse the soapy water off of the gasket. If the gasket is not clean, it will not create a seal with the refrigerator.

    Another reason the refrigerator is not cooling down may be because the refrigerator door is opened too frequently or left open for a long period of time. Pay attention to your use of the door and try to shorten the amount of time the door is opened.
  • Other Causes
  • Your Jenn-Air refrigerator might not cool down for other reasons. If you have recently added food to the refrigerator, the temperature of the food may have an effect on the temperature of the refrigerator. The temperature in the refrigerator will adjust after the food sits in the unit for an hour or more.

    You may have obstructed the air flow on the inside of the refrigerator with the placement of your food. The rear air grille is located under the crisper drawers. Move any food items away from the rear air grille to increase the air flow through the refrigerator.
  • If those thing above did not solve your problem you better check and replace the relay and compressor and it will be good as new. Thanks

    Temperature does not go below 59 deg. refrigerator side.

    Auto Damper models, The Auto Damper model refrigerator has
    two controls and both have capillary sensing.
    The Auto Damper controls the fresh
    food temperature and the Freezer Temperature
    Control guides the freezer temperature.
    The fresh food compartment temperature
    is maintained by a damper assembly located
    at the back of the temperature control
    housing. Changes in air temperature
    cause the damper door to open and close.
    A control rod and gear connect the fresh
    food control knob to the damper control.
    Turning the fresh food control knob to the
    COLDEST position increases the flow of
    freezer air into the fresh food section. The
    freezer compartment temperature control
    warms at a faster rate and cools at a slower
    rate, increasing the compressor run time
    necessary to maintain a satisfied freezer
    temperature control.
    Turning the fresh food control knob to a
    WARMER setting decreases the flow of
    chilled air into the fresh food section. The
    freezer compartment temperature control
    warms at a slower rate and cools at a faster
    rate, decreasing the compressor run time
    necessary to maintain a satisfied freezer
    temperature control.
    It is ver possible that the auto damper has failed and will need to be cosidered as a likely cause.

    Check the circulation fan in the freezer compartment that circulates the cold to the fresh food compartment. If its not running, and no ice is on it to bind uo the blades, replace the motor.

    In most refrigerator freezers, the refrigerator gets its cold from the freezer. The evaporator fan circulates air over the coils in the freezer and cold air circulates into the refrigerator through vents. If the vents are blocked or closed, then the fridge will not get cold enough but the freezer will. If neither is cold enough, then the number of possibilities increases.
    Lowering the freezer temperature will increase the cooling cycle activity. Setting the refrigerator temperature may have little affect on the cooling cycles because it simply changes the vent opening size. Decreasing the fridge temperature opens the vents more and increases air circulation from the freezer.
    The temperature can be adjusted using the controls found inside the refrigerator or freezer. The ideal freezer temperature is about 0 to 5 degrees (F) and about 38 degrees (F) for the fridge.
    Measure the temperature by placing a cup of water with a cooking thermometer into the refrigerator for about 2 hours or more. To test the freezer, substitute alcohol or cooking oil.
