Thermostat too high causing everything to freeze

The fridge was up too high causing everything to freeze. The thermostat was also broken so couldnt just turn it down, so we pulled the back off and adjusted the thermostat with pliers, it is now broken and we need a new thermostat, how do I go about getting one?

You can order a new thermostat using the model and serial number off of the refrig. if the model# tag is missing or unreadable you may be able to get a part number off of the part itself. there are numerous online parts provider for appliances. 
If yo would like message back with a mod and ser# and I would be happy to get yo a part number. thanks Peyton

My kenmore coldspot mode 106.53394300 is freezing items in the fridge


If further adjustments cannot be made to the thermostat, the next step would be to replace the thermostat or if so equipped, the temperature thermistor.

What temperature should i have my top half fridge of my hotpoint fridge/ freezer as it is too cold and everything is freezing


A good setting is in the middle of the thermostat range. For example, if you have numbers from 1 to 9, 5 would be a good number. If this setting continues to freeze, look for a bad thermostat or temperature thermistor.

Fridge keeps freezing up


Then replace the thermostat. It's cheaper that wasting all that beer. Seriously I think your thermostat is broken and stuck on coldest setting. Sea Breeze

Freezer working fine, Fridge is freezing everything on low settin


THERMOSTAT ON 90% OF SIDE/SIDE REFRIGERATOR IS LOCATED AT THE TOP OF THE FRIG COMPARTMENT .YOU KNOW, THE ONE THAT HAS OFF ON IT AND USUALLY NUMBERS. YOU WILL HAVE TO DROP THE PANEL TO ACCESS THE THERMOSTAT. ALSO NOTE THAT AN INDICATION OF A STUCK THERMOSTAT IS WHEN THE COMPRESSOR RUNS AND RUNS AND DOESN'T SHUT OFF.ALSO CHECK FREEZER TEMP TO SEE IF IT IS BELOW 0 DEGREES THAT ALSO INDICATES STUCK THERMOSTAT.

Fridge keeps on freezing everything inside of it


This refrigerator only has one thermostat located in the fresh food compartment it is designed to activate the sealed system (cooling) until it reaches approximately 37 deg f in the fresh food compartment. The damper controls how fast the cold air can move from the freezer compartment to the fresh food compartment. Allowing you to control the temp in the freezer by controlling the flow of cold air to the thermostat.

You have one of two problems.
#1 your thermostat is no longer opening when it achieves set temp. fix = replace thermostat pn 61005798 $35
#2 your damper arm or assemblie has broken. Fix = Replace damper or broken arm and actuator.
damper assembly pn12001377 $44
damper actuator pn 61002000 $2
damper arm pn 61001999 $2

GE refrigerator is freezing everything.


I had that problem in my refrigerator and found out that it was coming from the freezer. The thermostat in the freezer broke and it was crazy freezing in the freezer part as well as freezing in the refrigerator. Once we replaced the thermostat everything was fine. It cost me $125
