If the touch control doesn't respond then it's most likely bad. They don't normally act up, they either work or they don't.

Hello Maxleilao,
Welcome,

You said, Both Freezer and Fridge compartments stopped keeping optimum temperature. Freezer compartment is working as a fridge, and fridge also not keeping the temperature as it should. Both temperature controls are on maximum (I actually tried many different combination's with no luck).

What is the model #.
How old is it?

If the fridge is only a couple of years old , try turning it off and then! unpluging it for 5 minute and then
restarting it.
What happened?
if nothing good then most likely it is this next task!

It should be on a sticker inside the door jam or close to it on the inside wall of the fridge.
If it is real small like a counter high fridge, the number may be on the rear.
If the fridge is full size fridge check in the rear to locate where the condenser is. (lt looks like a thin row of black tubes that the freon travels through).
If not and they are under the fridge behind a removable plastic grille in the front of the fridge.
If this is the case then remove the plastic grille to see if the rows of thin (black tubes) called a condenser is covered with one to two inches of dust and not visable yet due to the blanket of dust!
This makes the condenser (black tubes) hot and unable to cool.
Air is sucked in from the front and passes over these tubes and cools the freon.

That is making it hot and the fridge and freezer warm.
You will need a flash light,
The plastic grille comes off when you press down on the top and up on the bottom together. Like squeezing the grille with your fingers until it comes off in your hands.
Get a flashlight, and get down on the floor and look under the fridge at the condenser. If all you see is an inch or two deep of lint and dust, then you need to buy a refrigerator brush at the hardware store and clean the thick coating of dust off.The brush is one inch wide and round with a very long handle 36 inches. Do this very slowly and gently. Remember the freon is in these tubes so you don't want to bend them and get a leak.
I know this was a long explanation but if this is the case I just saved you a service call.
It will take some hours to get cool again if this did not cause any damage to the compressor!
Some times all night till it reaches the max. temperature.

If there is no condenser below, or this does not do the trick, you may need to replace the thermostat!
or have a low freon level.

Waiting for your response

Let me know!

Everything is freezing in our refrigerator even


Your thermostat has failed and requires replacement. If the fridge is very old you could use a mains interupter device that has a temperature sensor that is placed in the fridge. There are several hobby kits for such devices usually used for converting old fridges for wine storage.

Freezing at any tempeture


I ordered a new thermostat (about $40 with shipping) & installed it. It's pretty easy to replace. The fridge has been working fine since.

Digital Tempeture numbers off


Those control boards are sort of flakey and any kind of power surge, etc. can really goof them up. If you check under the very bottom of the fridge there should be a technical sheet taped up to the underside in a plastic bag. Take that out and read it to see if there is a test reset you can do before replacing the board.
