Kenmore 52552100 staying too cold

I have a kenmore 52552100 side by side refrigerator. Even with the fridge side setting on as low as possible, our food and drinks are still ending up frozen (milk, eggs, O.J., lettuce...). We think it may be the thermostat but are not sure how or where to get one, or how to go about replacing it.
Thanks

SOURCE: Thermostat (1) Assembly defrost, (2) damper, (3)Thermostat???

If it is digital control its either the thermistor or the control itself, if it is manual then the problem is the thermostat.

SOURCE: Fridge not cooling

evidently the fan that runs in the freezer and blows air into the main fridge has a circuit issue or the fan is frozen, but if the bulb does not work then its a circuit issue. likely on the same circuit as fan.

SOURCE: I have a Kenmore coldspot side by side- not cooling properly

Setting it to 5 is what the manufacturer recommends. If you set it to 1 and the frig is still not cold, then you probably have a faulty cold control (thermostat)

My Kenmore side by side is fine, except for freezing everything in the crisper drawers.


The coldest place in your fridge is in the crisper drawers, manufactures know this and they even put heaters under the floor of your fridge to try to heat it up a bit in there, if you set your freezer temperture to low there will be less cold air current that flows into your fridge but it will flow in over a longer period of time, that air is about -22C so it will be blowing on your items in your crisper for a long time and it will probably freeze them, all very confusing and complicated but it may help to turn your controles for your freezer to a warmer setting, on the other hand if you only open your fridge a few times a day the cold air being denser will settle in the bottom of the fridge and freeze the crisper area, not much you can do about this, except eat more food... :-)

Not getting the cold it needed


Hi, both compartment of the refrigerator (freezer & fridge) not freezing and getting cold means you have low or empty freon (gas) in the compressor of the refrigerator and you need to refill it as soon as possible.

Take care

Refrigerator too cold


Sounds like the damper door that regulates airflow from the freezer into the fridge is staying wide open. The cause could be a bad thermostat or a failed damper motor, but it could also just be ice jamming the mechanism. That could have happened after a two-day opportunity to melt and re-freeze, so let's try a cheap troubleshooting method first.

Look in the fridge for the plastic grill where air comes from the freezer into the fridge - probably down low on the partition wall. Aim a hair dryer, on a medium heat setting, into the grill for a minute or so and see if that helps. There's a fan in there, so don't go poking your fingers in unless you unplug the fridge first.

If this doesn't help, then you may have a failed component in the damper door assembly, or possibly a bad thermostat. Good luck with this, and I'm glad your power is back on!

Fridge does not stay cold


If the compressor is running continually, could be short of gas , or a compressor problem, ie not pumping properly,make sure it has plenty of ventilation

Kenmore fridge not cold


You might have to have a repairman check the charge of freon in the system.
