    Sam,

    The thermostat controls the temperature.

    It should cycle between 36 and 42 degrees.

    If it gets colder than that in the fresh food compartment, the thermostat does not cut off.

    Therefore, the thermostat is bad.

    This is not a Inappropriate diagnosis.

    This is a fact regarding refrigeration controls and temperatures.

Hi, my refrigerator Panasonic NR-B320T non stop running, both vegetable and freezer sections are GETTING FREEZED even though the temperature are set at 1 (cold not at 3, the coldest).


check your user hand book as most fridge settings work the lower the number the colder the setting
so 1 is around 1-3 degrees , 3 is 4-6 degrees, 4 is 7-10 degrees
it is the freezer that works 1 is minus 5 and 5 is minus 20 degrees
it would explain why everything is freezing up
it would also explain the non stop running as the fridge is battling to keep the low setting

How to adjust the thermostat


Hello Keith Wertheim,

Your freezer MAY-BE SET to COOL or your food might be blocking proper AIR-FLOW... CHECK these FIRST before
SETTING ANY CONTROLS...
Set freezing level first... (close below freezing)
THEN set refrigerator levels last...
(very close ABOVE freezing)

- Before setting ANY MILK, MEAT and/or VEGETABLE
CONTROLS are set to MIDRANGE...

The ENTIRE APPLIANCE should be ALLOWED TO
STABILIZE (run un-molested) for 24 - 72 hours BETWEEN ADJUSTMENTS.

PATIENCE works the best/fastest...

My apologies just because this has become a GLOBAL site... I'm TYPICALLY an unapologetic Fahrenheit (°F) kind of guy. Since this is actually a GLOBAL site
32 DEGREES is freezing point in Fahrenheit (°F)...
((WIKI conversion discussion at VERY BOTTOM)).

>> Depending one what refrigerator you HAVE...

And... your personal preferences...
Your refrigerator is set very CRITICALLY ABOVE
32 Degrees Fahrenheit (°F) = FREEZING...
but below 40 degrees
(for safely/longevity)
((Don't care about Celsius/Centigrade or Kelvin)).

Your owners manual directs you though SET-UP.
(all that is available on-line as well by searching your model+owners+manual).

Once you are SET-UP (level, square) ...
TEMPERATURE "SETTING" it is a bit of a balancing act
(I recommend you buy 2 ( refrigerator + freezer ))... between the freezer hardness (LARGE range of operation) and the REFRIGERATOR (very SMALL range of operation)

FREEZER working range -20 degrees up to FREEZING.

If it is "A Thermostat" one compartment will necessarily have to follow the OTHER... In MOST cases you simple DETERMINE
WHAT LEVEL OF HARD-NESS you FIRST WANT in your
ICE CREAM... (freezer adjustment first).

INTERESTING...

I have JUST DISCOVERED... a new TWO EVAPORATOR
design ... More fun.

Fridge not cold enough


The higher the number the colder the temp is supposed to be.

In order to prevent the formation of bacteria and other such organisms to affect food the way it does, the ideal temperature range of refrigerators has been mentioned here. Before we look at these settings, it is important to know the format in which temperatures are represented within a refrigerator. Commonly, you will notice a dial representing the figures 1-5 or 1-9 in the refrigerator, and a dial representing the letters A-E in the freezer. The ideal setting is usually in the middle of such figures.

If the dial is in such a format in your refrigerator, try a setting at 3 if the range is 1-5, and at 4 if the range is 1-9. For the freezer, a setting at C is suitable.

The ideal temperature in the refrigerator ranges between 34 degrees F - 38 degrees F or 1 degrees C - 3 degrees C. So that foods such as vegetables and fruits remain fresh and crisp, the temperature may be set around 38 degrees F or 3 degrees C.
The ideal temperature in the freezer ranges around 0 degrees F (-18 degrees C) or lower.

Everything in the vegetable and lower drawers is freezing. The temperature is set at 42 degrees.


Can you put a thermometer in the different places in the fridge?
All food has to be kept below 40 degrees and above 32 degrees.

Hope this helps you

Hotpoint fridge freezer freezer ok but fridge not working temp is always 21 degrees tried to set to 4 degrees but just keeps going to 21 freezer is fine -22 degrees


Merv -

Most manufacturer's fridges are designed for 34 degrees F in the fresh food compartment and 0 degrees F in the freezer compartment. Setting the fresh food compartment to a value lower than 32 degrees will freeze any moisture in foods, fruits and vegetables and freeze water in juices and other beverages resulting in broken containers, exploding cans, etc.

What you need is another freezer. Trying to convert a refrigerator into a freezer is going to be very difficult - especially without ruining it.

Good luck!

Vegetables freeze in the vegetable drawer. Freezer is on lowest setting.


Make sure that you realise that 1 degree is colder than 2 degrees and therefore a setting of 3 - 5 degrees might solve your problem
